As a newbie I really appreciate the simple things on photoshop - can I ask what brushes you use the most?  Thanks!

Thank you dear, it's great to know my tips are useful!
I usually use the default round brush and play around with opacity and flow.
I also use a graphics tablet, maybe that's why you thought I use certain brushes.
Hope I helped :)

And I love MJ too :XD:

Question: On the model layer there are two layer masks - what is the purpose of the two masks? I've never seen that done before :confused:
Reply
:iconsara-hel:
sara-hel Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
You're welcome! :D

I always do this when extracting a model. The first mask is a vector one using the pen tool and the second one is a normal mask which I create to erase parts that I don't want to be very sharp, like hair or the bottom part of the model (her intersection with the ground). This will help better in blending because sometimes I bring back the original background of the model's image. I hope I explained well :pray: 
Please let me know if you didn't get it :blush:
