Improve your concept art skills in Photoshop

For this workshop, I'd like to show you a really fun way to sketch characters from just your imagination. I'll be showing you how to create Photoshop brushes to mimic the traditional brush pen and marker techniques used by professionals. 

I'll start with a texture brush to sketch in the lightest values, building the gestures and form of the character. During this early stage, I'll also go over some techniques to follow when producing cover art work and layouts. I'll then move on to the darker values, bringing in details from the lighter sketch form.
