    Ps Square brush

    I know this sounds like a retarded query, but I am looking for a square brush for photoshop and the ones I made insofar suck. Anyone have suggestions, settings, actual brushes they can share?

    Thanks.

    Why lad I know what you need! You need to buy Whit Brachna's snow mountain dvd sold exclusively by massive black. Not only is it a superb process by one of today's leading environmental artists, it comes free with Whit's personal set of brushes featuring many square-like patterns.

    So have your credit card ready and prepare to blast your senses away with Whit Brachna's Snow Mountain tutorial pack only $15.00 from Massive Black. Remember, if you ain't got the 'Black, you ain't got jack.

    (how was that mr manley?)

    Are you looking for a square brush, or just something that simulates a flat brush?

    I haven't found a great way to simulate a flat, because even at 1% spacing, you'll see gaps on any kind of change of direction. Since Photoshop brushes are just stamps of shapes repeated very close together, it's inevitable that some shapes don't lend themselves well to being brushes and getting what you expect out of them.

    For short strokes that only go in one direction you can make a more rectangular shape and set it to 1% spacing. In Shape Dynamics, turn on Angle Jitter and set it to Direction. Any line that changes direction by too much though will end up with annoying gaps as the stamp tries to navigate the change. I like to round the edges of my rectangular shape to make the lines seem more smooth.

    If you feather your edge a few pixels you can kill off the jagged edge and with a 1% spacing it will keep its 'hardness'.

    I guess yes I am trying to find a way of simulating a flat oil brush without having to use painter. Because you know, I hate painter.

    Anyway yes I do have a problem with the gaps that the brush leaves so I don't really know what to do with it.

    I'll keep looking in the meantime.

    Thanks.

    And no I'm not spending monies on dvds I have a limited amount of money and much rather spend it on supplies.

    Better start saving then since I've used this software to make the brush strokes, Ps will always break the brush stroke when using flat brushes and since flat brushes are very import to me I pretty much block all my colors and shapes using that flat brush I showed, plust you have two types of blending options!

    Flat brush emulation tip:
    I've found that if start with your rectangular brush to that it's wider than it is tall, then rotate it to 90 degrees you get far less craziness in turns.
