Just the regular digital airbrush. I use Corel Painter. The method should work pretty much the same with the Photoshop airbrush. I start with a large-ish size and work my way down to small sizes, opacity and flow mid-to-high depending on the effect I want. Usually when I'm done I find it helps to sweep a large low-opacity brush over the top of the mane/tail hairs to soften the liney effect.
I'm glad I found your tutorial, I use Corel Painter too, but just so many people use Photoshop and I find it a bit hard to figure out how to get the same effect in Corel Painter. Thanks a lot, this is really going to help!
So helpful, both parts! I try to find anything that makes it easier for me and my mouse, and I think this will help. I find grayscale way easier to work with! Thank you so very much for both of these walkthroughs!

Does corel painter have any difference from corel painter essientials, cause I do have the trial for corel painter, but then again I have corel painter essientials which I OWN and does that make any difference?
sorry for my late reply... I think painter Essentials is basically a stripped-down version of the full program... it does not have as much range of tools. I'm pretty sure Essentials should have the standard digital airbrush and detail blender though, so it should not be a problem!
