This Photoshop watercolour brush “Crispy Blot” is the free brush of the week, you can download it on the free brush page until November 14th after which it will alwys be available in the Shop or as part of the ArtBrushes collection.
This week’s free Photoshop brush is a wet grainy poster paint brush which gathers pigment at its opaque and blocky edges but has a more transparent dilute center all of which is rich with a wet and grainy texture. Up close, this brush can work well as a magic marker for graffiti tags. you can download it for free all week in the shop or on the free brush of the week page
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 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
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.
It’s been a little while since I put out a watercolor brush so here’s a gritty one for you. ‘Sip Dream’ is a very grainy Photoshop watercolor brush with a tendency to pool paint in small sections. This brush has a Fairly wide range in tone with about a 70% opacity at the top range of pressure.
As usual this one is free for Art brush Members.
