Gulf Stream is the latest Photoshop ink brush in the store. It’s probably the most variable in terms of width and as such can be a bit of a challenge to control but the rewards are great; a responsive runny opaque wavy ink line.  Get it here. Or as part of the ALL Photoshop Brushes pack

Here’s what it looks like when in use:

Emulating classic art styles in Photoshop

While most of the artisanal brushes here are of the natural media type, there is a lot that can be done with custom Photoshop brushes including emulating art styles, in this case, Pointillism which was popularised by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in the late 1880s. This digital drawing was drawn with the Pointy Pop brush available here . The brush scatters a cluster of dots around your stylus as you draw, larger and more wide spread the harder you sketch. Maybe Seurat would consider it cheating, but couldn’t you make the same complaint to the first person who tied a tuft of hairs together to create the first paintbrush, or using a mahl stick, or how about a paint-roller? Are those all examples of cheating or just using the right tool for the job?

While you think about it, get the Pointillist Photoshop brush and start cheating today.

A Realistic Photoshop Pencil – The Borrowed Pencil

I’m working on a set of pencils, a pencil for every occasion, you know, HB, B, B2 etc. But sketching doesn’t always work that way. In the same way that the best camera is the one you have, the pencil you’ll use to sketch your next masterpiece with is often the one the waiter left on the counter, or the pencil from the box in the garage, or the Borrowed Pencil

This Photoshop pencil is a versatile realistic sketching pencil that with a light touch, has a very faint light line but with firmer pressure produces a dark confident line. The graphite line has some slight edging, as if from a flaky lead and the fill texture is visible, perhaps akin to the look of a medium pencil on 100lb paper.
