    Hi, Thank you very much for sharing this 🙂
    On Youtube you also mention I’d be able to get the brushes from this page but am unable to find them?

    I’m currently working on a digital painting of a crystal canyon and am not very experienced with landscapes to begin with, let alone such a background for a painting. This has helped so much with seeing how you render the crystal portion (the white with mostly muted turquoise, and then a little of the more saturated color coming through in places) along with a little texture. Thank you for the fantastic tutorial!
