A combination of new photoshop tools, new wacom drivers and some practice getting used to the new settings and tools and I can actually draw in photoshop. I mean no rough sketches and then redrawing em, the old build up technique I was always forced to do in PS cuz drawing in the program has always sucked, I mean just one layer one pencil tool, and a eraser and finish as I go approach. I love it. I can die now.. achievement unlocked. the pic below shows my reference, my wacom driver settings and my drawing, which I did in about ~40mins.

(to side note: For me learning how to draw or paint isn't just a matter of memorizing how things look, though there is a visual vocabulary that develops over time, but conditioning the minds reflexes through practice or exercise to sense and exploit visual relationships. In other words it's more like personally learning how the mind works and relates to things and using it to an advantage as a way of improving how to draw or paint or develop ideas).
enough of the left brain back to the art, the right brain.
