    For the longest time I've tried to stay away from using special brushes for painting and drawing, trying to get proficient with just the round brush, but using some of these custom brushes makes my work look so much more credible!

    I wonder how often people are using custom brushes!

    Photoshop brushes

    Hey I thought I would chime in on this as well.

    I have been fooling around with custom brushes in Photshop for a while now - you know how it goes you work on a project and need a custom brush to do something so you make it. Any ways, I started to put them in to sets and give them away along with left over vector art and texture files of my web site I set up for this. They are all free to use in your comercial projects - just dont sell or give away the sets with out asking me first . The page is http://orbitalrice.com/ .Right now I only have 2 sets up now but am trying to add a new set every week or so.

    Here are the 2 sets I have up now.

    favourite brushes/custom brushes

    and

    favourite brushes/custom brushes

    They all have been made in Photoshop cs3 and work with the wacom tablet.

    I hope they help you make GREAT art!

    cant remember who asked, but sadly had some problems with my computer a while ago and lost photoshop, so just bought the new photoshop program, but i think i can post a high resoloution brush stamp and i posted the settings earlier in this thread; so once its up save it, open it in photoshop then the usual >define brush..etc etc and fiddle with the settings.

    what you do is set your DIRECTION under Brush dynamics .. then you also have to play with the roundness settings.. they can be based off pressure and direction and such most likly it is just roundness and set randomly at mayeb 30%


    hope this helps.. roundnesss helps to break up repitition when a shape like a tirangle has to follow a set path..

    Notice how the triangle 'lines' in this piece seem to follow the path? So all the triangles aren't all facing the same direction, they are following one another in different angles....

    It obviously looks pretty 'Illustrator' to me, but is there some way to do that in Photoshop?

    That can also be done in zbrush which android also uses.

    just define a custom brush in photoshop that is triangle shaped. then in the brush properties change the spacing on the brush tip in brush tip shape so that the triangles don't overlap. Then change the angle of the brush tip by rotating the circle in the brush tip shape section until the triangles point into one another. Then under shape dynamics turn on angle jitter and set it to direction. your triangles should now follow whatever path you draw.

    (this is assuming you have a tablet of course)

    see my gallery of some of my work, old and new

    this one was pretty much all done with a square photoshop standard (I cant remember off-hand where it is exactly....but that square of paint on the right is what it looks like)and all I changed was the opacity jitter to pen pressure in other dynamics (something i discovered recently in another thread somewheres around here-but thats super usefull-if you've not tryed it I suggest you doI
    any chance on sharing the grass brush?

    I use a really old version of photoshop, so I don't think the actual brush libraries will be compatible. I'm attaching the textures though, though I have them at different sizes too.

    The text chunk I found out by accident from painting with a signature brush, I find it gives a nice veil effect and can be unusually soft.

    The small ones with few dots I made for doing hair, they are not very good at that but I now use them for detailing in general.

    This may be a silly question but, how do you save custom brushes so they don't dissapear if you have to reset the brush pallet for any reason?

    The Large Portion of shapes are created with a tools called "Pattern Chalk" that is exclusive to Corel Painter. Pattern Chalk combined with a vast library of shapes he has collected. As ArtZealot mentioned as well that Zbrush is a good potion on the process as well.
    These effect can be imitated in photoshop to a certain degree, but for the most part... never close enough as far as Ive always heard.
    His Demo's in the download section have explinations, demonstrations about these tools and how he sets them up. Quite original and impressive.

    If I'm reading your question right? and I may not be! You can get the shape of your brush to follow it's path directions by setting the angle jitter in shape dynamics settings of the brush palette, you can also use the initial direction to get a direction that only travels in the starting direction of the brush stroke

    Lately, I've been enjoying a slight variation on the basic round brush. You turn down the roundness to get a fairly flat ellipse, set it at whatever angle works best for you, set angle jitter to initial direction, and set size jitter to pen pressure. I like this as an alternative to the basic round, because I can work with it the same way, but it puts down a more caligraphic, less predictable stroke. Not appropriate for everything, but I like it. Setting the angle jitter to initial direction allows you to get different brush orientations from stroke to stroke while maintaining that caligraphic look for each individual stroke. Good for dabbing in foliage and so forth.

    I'm actually on a mission right now- I just today got an Intuos4 and I am trying like mad to find an inking/lettering brush that isn't as felt-tippy as the basic round brushes. To make matters worse I'm on PS Elements- it appears to use stuff like tilt etc (at least I can make crazy twirling brushes from the Wacom brushes) but I cannot control it because Elements doesn't let you.

    Nearest I got is Brushy 75, scaled down to 8, only size and roundness turned on, initial roundness 50% or so. But it's uncontrollable- the shape twists as you press, it gives a very interesting line but it's not only twitchy, it's part grey. I can't really use it like that. The less roundness you use, the crazier it is but also more greyed and streaky.

    I'm going to play with some of the brushes posted, but they so often seem to be texture stuff. Someone has to have made either a line-art brush, or some tilt/rotation aware thing that could scale down to a line-art brush. Ideally with a really opaque, crisp line...

    Edit: never mind, I'm doing it. Got the real Photoshop and am wrestling with the brush creation process. I want to have some stuff be commercial if I can get it good enough, but I will try to always put out free stuff as well. When I have a free thing I'll post it.
