Free Brush of the Week #77 – “Slip Genie”

This week’s free Photoshop brush of the week is “Slip Genie” an ink brush with a tremendous width response range. Glide your stylus lightly across your work for a razor thin line or give it all you’ve got and it blooms out into a wide breadthed bristle brush. This was sketched without changing the brush size, the variations in stroke width were all achieved solely be varying the pressure of my brush stroke on the Wacom tablet.

The background paper texture and lighting overlay is from my upcoming art surfaces Photoshop templates

I am getting so much interest via email to get them out into the shop so I am going to step up my efforts and I will try to get the first of them out by November. Thank you all of you who wrote in to ask me to hurry up, I love that you love these surfaces as much as I do!

Photoshop Pencils – From the workshop

Testing out some new Photoshop pencils
Testing out some new Photoshop pencils

Here are some doodles from the workshop for an upcoming set (long overdue) of Photoshop Pencils. There are a few pencils in the shop already like the Borrowed Pencilthe RE CC and a few others, but no full set. I couldn’t resist splattering it a bit with some ink from the Inky Leaks set (coming August 30th!) and the paper is from the Art Surfaces PSD templates collection which is taking a bit longer than I imagined (November?) I will probably give a way a few more samples before then.

I really love painting with this week’s free GrutBrush. It’s sloppy, has a ton of personality, wild edges but very controllable opacity and is chock full of texture (even though the brush itself has no texture bitmap – it’s all in the brush tip) Get it for free all week on the free Photoshop brush of the week page

Drawn with the free Photoshop brush of the week for July 25th “Flue Blow”

This week’s free Photoshop brush is a big broad brush that covers your image in a fast flowing cloud of debris. Like a broken sack of coal this brush is capable of a light dusting, but with a little more stylus pressure it will release a thick billowing dust cover.

Free Photoshop Brush of the Week #70

Closeup of brush strokes painted with this week’s free Photoshop brush, the ‘Pensive Linny’ ink brush, a highly responsive and controllable ink brush with a well defined paper edge bleed texture. This one is somewhat different from most of the ink brushes in that the bleeding ink into paper effect on the edges of the brush stroke into the paper is inherent in the brush itself.
