Think before for flagging for lack of screenshots, because it is a Photoshop tutorial. Thanks for reading, cause I put a lot of time into making sure this is as legible as the Rosetta Stone (jk).

If you need any help pertaining to the tutorial or making a brush, ask. I try to be as in-depth as I can.
