    favourite brushes/custom brushes

    hi, i realise there was a brush sharing thread here along while ago but ..well it has more or less disappeared and most new members dont know about it i thought it would be good to start a new thread for people to post their favourite brushes with examples etc and share info on brush settings and creating brushes etc...

    i have several custom brushes i like that people may want to download..(I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD IF SOMEONE COULD TELL ME HOW I WOULD APPRECIATE IT AND POST THE FILES )
    you might not like them but post your own custom brushes of favourite default brushes and peices you have used them in as an example or just a few strokes of them

    (if there is already a new rthread for this lemme know i will just shut this and let it die off )


    here are some i have created for different effects

    favourite brushes/custom brushes

    favourite brushes/custom brushes




    this will probrably flop, get no replys and die but hey..i tried..i hope other ppl can help other ppl here

    Thanks for starting this thread. How did you make the first yellow ones... I like the natural feel you gave to them. Maybe as a suggestion for this thread for those people who want to show off their brushes should post a pic or list of settings used in the Brush Palette Config, and the original "Brush Tip Shape" beside it. And about saving Brushes, I THINK if just save the brushes as an ABR file (in the options of the Brush Palette), and post it here, we shouldn't have no problems in sharing brushes. Try it so I can test it out.

    Indeed. Everyone can save their custom brushes by having them open in the brush palette and then saving the custom brush set. Just be sure to not have any other extra brushes in the pack (especially the original Photoshop brushes) because it tends to confuse people. I have hundreds of brushes that I will have to post up one day soon.

    well the strange shape you can see on the top left of that picture is a stamp of the brush--that is the brush tip to get to sort of light misty part around it i like to smudgr parts of the tip that are at the side of the tip so if you see the stroke on the brush tip leading off upwards towards the left i smudged it slightly backwards and so it leaves thats effect.

    not 100% SURE about "natural" lol but basicly for those strokes there i just put fade on at about "1037" and it leaves that nice effect at the tail of the stroke.

    thought I'd add some images to make it more fun

    favourite brushes/custom brushes

    For the grass I went out to some fields, collected some grass, scanned one bit in, cut it out, made the brush, set the spacing a little apart, and I think I used a bit of shape dynamics for size to be set to pen pressure.

    favourite brushes/custom brushes

    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

    this is one i did using a cutom comb brush i created, very similar the the default texture comb but with aome noticable differences when using it, its alot smoother and the storke sorta has a flick at the end to give it a kinda look like a ribbons in the wind (which was the effect i wa going for)


    for those of you who havent seen it, the original brush sharing thread (nov-dec'06) some brushes available there

    would be good if some ppl would post this thread in their signatures or something to get more people aware, not many ppl use this forum.

    (im still not sure how i upload brush sets )

    this is a stufy of another painting, done using the brush you see in yellow on my first post. THIS IS A DIRECT COPY FROM REFRENCE OF ANOTHER PERSONS PAINTING. painted by me but 100% from refrence painting.

    this was just a play with that brush after icreated it, and i was also just trying to ease myself back into colour selection in PS after nt having used it in a while.
