In BYU-I's computer lab, I overheard some fellow students discussing brushes in Photoshop. One of them in particular made the assertion that anything is better than using the basic round brush. I had spent countless hours watching Anthony Jones paint with the round brush almost exclusively. The basic round is far from obsolete. In fact, it's the most versatile brush we have. I wanted to prove it by painting this. Every stroke is nothing but the the basic round brush. When it comes to Photoshop brushes, less is more (generally speaking).
Other students were dissing the Photoshop round brush. This work is nothing but basic round.
