    I'd be interested in seeing it, but no rush!

    Well guess what NumbSKULL thing I did.... for some unknown reason beyond the reach of mortals, I seemed to have merged those forest layers together and saved it last time I was working on it.... (SIGH)

    So ... I can't achieve that EXACT effect, though I do know the process behind it. It was done using about six different layers at varying levels of opacity and with about six different brushes ALL of which have the color jitter set up fairly high on the brush settings

    playing with the Brightness Jitter as well. The brushes I used to make the following little forest were (six layers, six brushes) : Forest Brushes1.zip

    I used the Lasso freehand to draw out a selection (you can use the path tool to do the same, I find the lasso easier) Gave it three strokes (save the selection)

    Make sure the spacing is out to where I like (you can find the settings you wish to use... I just experiment as I go) and brush in the first layer, then the second brush on the second layer....(above the first.) varying my colors between dark and light green (don't be afraid to use black in place of a green) Third brush on the next layer and so forth.

    I know this is kinda half-ass explained and I'm sorry for that. I can write a proper tutorial if the need is really that great. Sorry I don't think my style is THAT great that everyone needs to imitate or try to achieve....

    Excellent! I can't wait to try this. In December. (Hello, NaNoWriMo is about to start! Gotta prepare for that!)
