Drawn with this week’s free GrutBrush, the “Humble Bee” natural media brush. It’s a thick saw-tooth edged opaque brush with a free flowing thick wet ink appearance, with a very slight width variation but when used with a lighter touch as I’ve done here it can have a bit of a crayonlike appearance. The background texture was created by scaling the brush to an absurdly large size. You can get the brush as always on the free brush of the week page
50 straight weeks of free Photoshop brushes with no repeats, in two weeks it will be one full year of giving away brushes!
This week I’m giving away ‘Thicken Think’ a natural media Photoshop brush that acts a bit like a pastel airbrush if such a thing were possible. You can download it all week from the free brush of the week page or in the shop.
Here’s a sneak peek at the latest Photoshop Brush I’m working it’s a pastel brush (or crayon if we’re being honest) it’s called Wax Factor, and I’m already in love with it. It’s very fast, has a nice full texture when you draw with light strokes but with a bit more pressure easily fills in and gives rich full colour coverage. I will probably give away a hundred of these for free the day I publish it so stay tuned.
Update: It’s now available and FREE for this weekend (Until November 11th 2014) Download this brush here.
One interesting feature of this brush is that when you press hard it has a rough texture, but with very light pressure it becomes a blending brush and you can use it to smudge and soften your strokes or blend them together without switching tools.
