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! You can sign up to get an email alert when they are ready here: http://grutbrushes.com/art%20surfaces/#signup

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.

This week’s free Photoshop brush is Slight Yell, an ink brush with a very smooth controllable ramp up from eyelash fine line to fat round width and worn edges at the highest pressure. Useful for tasks from line drawings to lettering. This one is an atypically large file size (almost 3MB whereas most are a few kilobytes) so if you don’t use it you may want to delete it from your Tool Presets after you try it out.
