Inky Leaks Tests – Photoshop Splatter brushes coming along

Testing the Photoshop splatter brushes for the Inky leaks collection

I’m still working hard testing the splatter, spray and inky messes that will be included in the Inky Leaks Photoshop splatter and spray brushes and tools collection. Here’s one of the test blotters from the lab. If you look closely you can see the smears from a couple of mixer brushes in there as well as a finger print smudge tool. The collection is coming along well and I still expect to release it on August 30th but you can still pre-order it until it is released at considerable discount (The price climbs up a bit every week)

Free GrutBrush of the Week #67 – “Slight Yell” Ink Brush

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.

Photoshop Ink Wash Brush ‘Mush Agog’

I added this wet inky Photoshop wash brush to the shop this morning. Start slowly with a soft stylus pressure and build on it by drawing back and forth to add more soggy ink until you have as much ink pooling as you need. Take care not to lift your stylus until you finish your stroke if you want to avoid overlapping edges.  It’s edges sometimes look better in general with a bit of softening using either a blender or an eraser.

Making a Mess Again in Photoshop

Taking a quick break from working on the cloud brushes to play around with some new splattery ink and paint brushes in the workshop. As usual, the goal is to make brushes that behave naturally; staining, splattering and ‘soaking’ into the paper as you draw, these are not stencil stamps. Here you can also see how using one of my paper templates enhances the organic look (take a look at the lighting in the darkest spots for example)
