    I introduced myself to digital painting recently and began using a tablet this afternoon. I noticed that when I make brush strokes, occasionally the brush settings window will pop up and I can’t figure out why. I press escape and continue where I left off, so it isn’t a big deal, but over time it is becoming and inconvenience, and so I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is triggering it to appear, and if it is a setting I can toggle on and off. I use Adobe Photoshop CC.

      Which OS do you use? Windows 10? And which tablet? A Wacom tablet? Maybe this could help:

    Is Wacom One Medium good or should I invest in something from Intuos series like Intuos Draw/Art Small?

      Don’t feel pressured to buy a fancy one if you can’t afford it, I used a cheap bamboo fun tablet all through art school and it worked very well. I think it comes down to personal preference. Wacom has always been reliable for me, so I would recommend any of their products!

      They are actually all the same link to the .PSD file so each didn’t have their own but I edited the download section to be less confusing =]

    I see that the program for this lesson “Basics of Digital Painting is Photoshop. Do you use Photoshop for Motion tutorials or for 3D tutorials? Thank you

      No, Photoshop is mainly for concept art and digital painting, if you’re looking for a 3D software, you should check out Blender and the tutorials we have on this site =]
