[A2]
Currently there is no limitation.

[Q3]
Which brush is recommended for painting clothing, skin, sky, tree, and metal?

[A3]
1. Clothing and skin…Watercolor, airbrush, blur
To express the softness of the skin and cloth, we recommend the watercolor or air brush.
It will look interesting if you blur some areas.

A…Watercolor B…Airbrush C…Blur

2. Sky…Fluffy watercolor, cloud
It's difficult to draw a realistic cloud isn't it?
We recommend the brush fluffy watercolor and cloud.
Drawing those complex cloud shapes and making them look fluffy is quite easy with these brushes!

A…Fluffy watercolor B…Cloud

3. Tree…Pencil, watercolor (rough), crayon
Watercolor (rough) and crayon is good for drawing the roughness of the tree.
For the branches and the trunk, I recommend using the pencil.

A…Pencil B…Watercolor (rough) C…Crayon

4. metal…Drawing pen, marker, blur
To express a shiny metallic texture, we recommend a hard edge brush like the drawing pen and marker.
If you blur some areas, it will look more realistic.

"The challengers" is an extra comment section that artists can add when they post a tutorial.
When users see the tutorial, they can try it out, and post what they made along with a comment.
Try enabling it if you post a tutorial!
