The only added brushes I have are random shaped ones I made (like stars, hearts, etc.) But for drawing I use the basic watercolor brush
I keep the size between 2.3-4
For correction I use 10 for sketching and 20 for inking

How do you do that circle background? Like the painting then a shape for the background
Here is a tutorial for you

Say hello to my official test subject
Skitty



There's 2 ways to do this

First way is with any basic drawing tool

Go up to the top and you will see this menu
Drop down and click Ellipse


When you press down the pen and move it around the outline of the circle shape will appear


When you let go the outline of a circle will be there

To fill it in just simply fill it in with the bucket tool or the selection inverse method



Second method involves this bad boy

One of the selection tools

Like the pen tool click ellipse


Put your circle where you want it


Then color that bitch in with anything you want


Same thing goes for squares/rectangles


To turn off the selection tool present Ctrl+D

There's also a polygon option where you can make your own wacky shapes by drawing one line at a time if that's your thing
