Mixing media in Photoshop. This was painted with four GrutBrushes; the PasteUp watercolour brush, Splatter Reed ink brush and two natural media brushes, Wren’s Tendril and Poster Parched. All these brushes can be found in the brush shop
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.
As always, you can download this brush for free until the end of this week (June 15th) when there will be yet another new free brush.
I do so many doodles and demos demonstrating one particular brush but the real fun comes when you use multiple brushes, each with it’s own strengths and personalities. This sketch uses 3 different brushes, Gulf Stream, a broad ranged responsive ink brush, Linoleum Roll, a wide grungy textured brush and Lazy Fair, a whispy ink brush with visible bristle marks.
*Requires Photoshop cs5.5 or higher and a pressure sensitive graphics tablet. Free registration required to download.
So Konwet, the latest ink brush in the store is a runny ink brush with an edge that bleeds as if you are drawing on a wet paper towel. A variable sized allows you to do fairly detailed work at low pressure but the brush really excels at broad gestural drawing.

This is two previews in one; sample brush strokes of Tremble Stem, a Photoshop Ink brush I’m working on that should be in the shop soon but also a preview of a new brush stroke sampler template. I want to develop a standard set of sample strokes that will both show off the brush in action and at the same time enable you to compare them in a relatively standard fashion. I’ve borrowed a template style from the excellent reviews of brush pens that I really enjoyed on Parkablogs written by Teoh Yi Chie. By performing a similar set of strokes using each brush I hope to be able to give a good idea of how each GrutBrush performs so that you can pick the perfect brush for your digital painting or drawing. This is just the first draft, based on Chie’s samples and it will probably change before I implement it widely. Continue reading New Brush Sample template
