It has recently been brought to my attention that the original Tools and Techniques thread has become victim of the board pruning feature. That feature has now been eliminated in this forum. So, without further intro, I give you the second installment of the Official Tools and Techniques Thread. The nature of this thread is going to be aimed at helping each other out by introducing new and interesting techniques or sharing your "tools of the trade." Traditional and digital art techniques, methods and tools will be welcomed here.
