Painted with the Owl Flower brush

This week’s free Photoshop brush is “Owl Flower” A feathered edge ink brush with a slightly variable width and opacity. The thin tapered crystal offshoots from the base stroke extend out to double the width of this stroke and give it a bulk while maintaining a light downy appearance

As always, you can download it from the shop or the member’s free Photoshop brush page for free until the end of this week (July 5th) when there will be a new free brush.

2 New Cross Hatching Brushes Added to Hatchers 01

10 Cross Hatching brushes for Photoshop
New total of 10 Cross Hatching brushes for Photoshop in Hatchers 01 set

This Week I added two new cross hatching brushes to the store. Hatch Acid and Hatch Blanket. This brings to 10 the total number of cross hatching brushes in the Hatchers 01 brush set. This was my first brush set on GrutBrushes and has always been the least expensive. Now that it has 10 brushes in it like the all the others I’ve decided not to raise but to lower it and offer it for $3. You can download one for free if you use the coupon code freehatch when you checkout.

As always, for an additional $7 you can get all 90 Photoshop GrutBrushes! This price will be going up soon. The total amount of brushes in the collection will soon be hitting 100 and I will be changing the pricing on the site, but with that I will offer some new options including a very affordable ‘all you can eat’ membership option which will soon include a Photoshop CC plugin to help you better use and organise your GrutBrushes.

You can get all 10 of the Cross Hatching Brushes in Hatchers 01 for $3 here

If you’ve ever used a palette knife to spread printer’s ink on a palette or a plate of glass this brush may feel familiar to you.  Flux Ebber is a tremendously wet, heavily loaded ink brush that quickly covers with opaque ink but can be wiped off and ‘squeegied’ around as long as you don’t lift your stylus which effectively dries the stroke. The brush is lightly weighted to one edge to give it slight directional characteristics.

As always, you can download this brush for free until the end of this week (June 15th) when there will be yet another new free brush.
