Here are my brushes. The top half are just variants of basic brushes, the
bottom half were made from ink blots that I scanned.

I'll be doing a livestream tutorial tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 7:00 PM EST,
showing how I use these brushes. I'll also try to demonstrate how to make
things look "painterly" without looking messy. Or at least, that's what I'm
going to TRY to do. We'll see how well it goes.

Terms of Use:
If you want these brushes... take them. You don't have to pay me, you don't
have to credit me, you don't even have to thank me. I made them in about
five minutes, and I hate when people try to charge for things like this.

My brush set. I only use a small selection of brushes 99% of the time. I have a ton more brushes, but they are specific custom brushes, rarely used. :)

Here are links to several excellent artists' brush sets.

Leventep : [link] (doesn't seem to be working for me, but you guys can give it a try)
Algenpfleger : [link]
Ditlev : [link] and [link]

For the beginner artist, though brushes are not everything, they do in a way affect your style of painting. It's helpful to play around with a range of brushes and find what you like.

Basic Brushes

I've been asked many times from notes about the brushes that I use as well as request for .abr/.tpl file. So here they are . ^^
They are basic ones that I mostly use on my work, so I hope you enjoy using it.

How to put the .abr /.tpl (brush file) to Photoshop

> Extract from .zip > there are .abr and .tpl files

For .abr ( Normal brush present ) > At the top right of [Brush Present] window >> Present Manager >> Load brushes (.abr) file

For .tpl ( As a tool present) > At the top right of [Tool Present] window >> Load Tool Presents (.tpl) file

* Please save the current brushes and tools first in case you don't like my brushes ^_^

-- If you have any question or it doesn't work right please feel free to ask me! Also let me know your if you like it or not :)

Hi-res brushes (except 1st one that works better on low-res hair drawings) that should work in every Photoshop CS version and in PS 7.0. To get them click download button on the right side of this description.

Apparently, they work in Gimp 2.8.6 too

Terms of usage
Sharing and Crediting:

:bulletred: This brush pack is completly FREE to use. Which means, these brushes itself CAN'T be sold as a whole pack, or as a part of another pack.

:bulletred: You can share this pack on other sites, provided you will not claim them as your own, and attach the credits/link to original source.

:bulletred: You can modify brushes and/or share them with other packs online, provided there's credit to the original pack, and provided that you'll also publish the modified/mixed pack as a FREE to use.(of course don't mix these brushes with brushes from commercial, non-free packs, to cancel their terms of usage or something like that, it won't work like that.)

This is especially important as I really want these brushes to be avaiable for fun, so please respect dem rules :)

You of course can modify this pack to be usefull for another softwares like GIMP, since I'm not able to do that- I don't know this software enough. Of course credit and link to original required and all that stuff ;)


Working with the brushes:

:bulletred: You can sell works made by these brushes, or use them for private/educational purposes, it's completly up to you.

:bulletblue: Crediting me under your work for using brushes is nice but only optional :)



It's a brush pack, that 15-6 years old me made out of various watercolour and pencil stains from my sketches. So, due to them being so old, I think they should work even with the PS 7.0. I just arranged them, cleaned up and over-saved the .abr file in PS CS5, but there's nothing, that shouldn't work in older versions I guess. They are simple, since I made them at the beggining of my digital painting adventure...
I highly recommend messing with opacity flow set to pen pressure or shape dynamics :heart: Some of the brushes have it, some don't, also, decreasing spacing in shape dynamics to about 8-9 from normal 25 gives more fluent stroke in some cases...
so please, experiment!
These brushes are in quite raw form, because I wanted to keep them like they were originally (despite some noob mistakes XD)


Enjoy, I hope? :)

Edit: Thank you guys and girls so, so much. You're incredible: I would never expect such warm welcome for this upload. And seriously, again, thank you so much.

After so many people requested it, I finally found the time to go through my gigantic pile of brushes and clean them from duplicates and presets I've never really used. The set is built on brushes found all over the internet. You may or not find in it brushes made by ~DanHowardArt, `DanLuVisiArt, *CoyoteMange, *algenpfleger and many many more. I picked and chose what I liked from them and that's how this big-ass set came to life.

The set contains 174 brushes that I use on an everyday basis. For your convenience it's divided into 9 categories:

  • Basic - brushes I use the most. Most of my paintings are made using those particular brushes and often I use only those alone. Brushes from the following categories are just an addition and are used depending on the subject and stylization I work in.
  • Clouds - a few dynamic brushes to paint skies, mist and smoke.
  • Rock - perfect for rocks, ground and other rough surfaces.
  • Water - splashes and brushes with wet edges - best if used with light paint on dark surfaces.
  • Hair & Feathers - Well, ain't I a douchebag. I completely forgot to check the release document for most of the fur and feather brushes and now had to remove them from the set. To download the brushes I use for painting fur, feathers and scales, please visit this brush set --> [link] made by *CoyoteMange
  • Plants - a very big set of dynamic brushes for painting foliage. Most of them are hand-painted giving pictures a very nice and unified look.
  • Details - all sorts of little things that add to the final image - seams, light effects, laces and trinkets.
  • Textures - yummy grunge and garbage that will make those flat surfaces look interesting. Scratches, wrinkles, rust, pores, stains - all you'll ever need.
  • Smudge - special brushes for blending. They give very interesting blur and displacement effects.

Why lazy? Because there are plenty of brushes that make your life easier.

The set works best with Photoshop CS5 and CS6. It should work with versions from 2 to 4 too but some of the brushes might not give the same effects.

Feel free to download and pick whatever you like. Have fun!
