Did you do this with an airbrush? if so, could you give me a few tips? Sorry to bother you. Im an amateur when it comes to airbrushing...
:please: :tux:

Well, if you, by airbrush, mean the standart brush with blurry edge (which I've actually used) you can skip to the line starting with *, but if you mean the button in ps that switches your standart brush into an 'airbrush' one that i've just discovered while searching for the answer what an airbrush actually is then I'm afraid I can't be of much help.

*if you are reading this I guess that you either meant the same brush as i use or you simply do not care and are curious about what I've written. (which, quite honestly, may be a buttload of incorrect crap as I'm no pro, just an enthusiast)
So a few tips: First off, I can't say much about drawing digitally without a tablet as I've never really tried it before i got one and everytime I happened to be without it and tried to do even the simpliest of skethes I horribly failed. But I know a few artists that made awesome pieces of art with just a mouse so even if you don't have a tablet don't lose hope. So well, to also say something besides all the nothing saying gibberish I'm producing just to postpone studying .. both standart(no blurry edge) brush and airbrush are powerful tools but over the time of my doodling I've come to an opinion that standart brush when in combination with dodge and burn tools works very nice and to shade they are definitely better than the airbrush. The most I use the airbrush after I've drawn something with the standart one and i need to soften the edge or when I paint dust or shadows or soft clouds and things like that. For skies it works very good too. Hmm as I think of it there's not really much I can say about just the airbrushing :D well so at least a few general things I think might come in handy.
you should always start with a theme coloured background (i.e. when you know you will draw something dark set your background to dark grey or black)(the airbrush now works well if you need gradients or know that you will have some parts of the painting this colour and the other of a different one - Basically try to do a very simple version of the painting). it will help you later a great deal. Learn to work with layers - that's the best thing there is imo in digital painting. This picture has around 100 layers (roughly counting) (I am quite excessive with them I think but I just don't have the heart to merge them together bc I always think I'll use them somehow later [but that 100 isn't really that surprising now when I look that I have one for every balloon and one for every balloon-string :D])
And well, here it pays maybe more than anywhere else, practice makes perfect.

I hope this helps you somehow, even though I don't think that I've written anything really useful that you wouldn't actually figure out by yourself ... so, well, if I've just lost your time by making you read all this then I am sorry :D

And also sorry for my english. If nothing else I'm quite sure that I've used way too many commas.
