Though the comment about smudging is completely right with the default settings on an average digital art style, it's a very important tool in digital watercolor if you edit it to become a blender tool rather than smudge. Gives very nice watery looks and some texture, so long as you use the right settings and brush.

Smudge tool with default presets gives horrifying results, that's true. But I use a custom brush shape with a custom setting and it creates lovely gradients with a grainy texture! Sometimes it's too smooth though.

hmm see it remember most of these when i do traditional. for some reason when its digital it goes out the window. i think i need some practice from still life's and some real life photos for more practice. hmm thanks for the reminder. hopefully it will stick next time i go to paint digitally
