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
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 itand 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 now browse all GrutBrushes Photoshop brushes in a sortable ajax grid with the newest listed first. It’s now faster (no more loading next page) It’s also responsive now, so it’s viewable on more devices and screen sizes. Click the red play button on any brush and see a video brush stroke preview of what it’s like to draw with it in real time! In the top right you can see which sets that brush is a part of and if you want to see and read more about that brush just click on the button in the top left and a new tab opens with more detailed previews and if available, example paintings and drawings done with that brush!
This week’s free brush is a grainy watercolor brush that has a lot of splattery texture when applied with repeated short strokes. Lift your stylus between each stroke to maintain maximum speckling or maintain contact to clean up the stray ink spots a little.
As always, you can download it from the free Photoshop brush page until the end of this week (June 28) when there will be a new free brush.
This week’s free brush is a contoured oil brush with thick if broken up coverage at full pressure it has a lighter wetter coverage at low pressure with traces of pigment deposits amongst the medium toned turpentine like wash.
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.
