I say ‘default’ but I generally take the photoshop default chalks and just tweak them so they look a bit more powdery – usually this involves a duel brush or texture brush added to it (or both in the case of one of my chalk brushes).

Stay tuned for more digital painting tutorials, freebies and inspirations.
