Anonymous asked: Hello Mary Kate :) Where do you usually get the textures you use? Do you make your own? I'm not sure if I'm using textures properly or if the ones I have just suck lol. But yeah they never come out as nice.

Hi! I scan some textures in and use brushes in photoshop. I think starting with hand drawn textures is a great way of understanding what kind of texture you want and learning how it’s achieved so when you make textures in photoshop, you create more believable textures. Brayers, paint brushes, ink, crumpled paper are all good tools to start with. It also never hurts to take a break from the computer.
