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.

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.

An artisanal Photoshop Inking brush for a change of pace. Poster Bantam is a broad and highly versatile Photoshop inking brush that can be used for sketching, painting and broad area fill. It mimics the look of wet water based poster paints on paper or card stock, with a a pretty fluid mostly opaque coverage while bits of the paper occasionally show through ever so slightly. A second swipe of the brush will give full coverage of course. At low pressure the brush is a bit drier, shows as well as some more textured bristles at the edges of the brush strokes. Great for broad gestural drawings, expressionistic sketching, signage and hand painted text.
This one was in the workshop for a long time but I am pleased to announce that “Swab Caress“, the latest and perhaps best of my watercolour brushes for Photoshop is now available in the shop. There are another dozen or so that are still in production that should be available within the next month or so.
From the catalog description:
An organic real watercolour Photoshop brush that responds to pressure sensitivity. A versatile brush for both outlining and fills it has a fairly consistent texture with just enough flaws to keep it feeling organic and natural but not enough to distract from the overall tone of the artwork. The edges of the brush stroke have a distinctive watery paintbrush appearance but are restrained enough to make for a relatively tightly controllable outline.

The first of many natural media watercolour brushes for digital painters from Grutbrushes.com is now available to download for free! (for a short while) This artisanal Photoshop brush responds to pressure in both opacity and to a lesser extent, size. Useful as a line brush at small sizes while also being versatile enough to serve as a fill in wash. The Frontier brush has enough edge and surface texture to provide an organic natural media feel while at the same time remains subtle enough to not overwhelm the artists subject matter. Suitable for drawing and sketching as well as digital painting.
