I received many emails asking about the brushes I use.
Here is the set I give to my students. Feel free to use it as well. It is a mix of personal brushes and other artists's set, free of use.

I suggest that you ADJUST THE SIZE OF THE WINDOW accorded to the picture, to take full advantage of the set. The brush repeating itself is here on PURPOSE, to help classify the all thing.

This set was created on Photoshop-CC and works with Cs6 and Cs5 as well.

I hope this helps !
Just don't forget that brushes won't do the job for you.

Hey everyone!  

This is the set of brushes that I currently use.  I like them because many of them do a great job of mimicking the look and feel of traditional media.

 I've gathered them from many sources over the past couple of years, and I organized and named them according to what properties they have, so the best way to view them (at first, at least) is to set your brush presets to the "small list" or "large list" in order to see the categories and names, and also have brush settings window open as well so that you can see the brush stroke of the selected brush. 

And although I already categorized them, I would recommend that you separate the pack into a few different sets, so that that there aren't so many brushes to navigate through.  When you need a brush from another category, simply load that set!

Hope you guys like them!

For digital Charcoal
From traditional charcoal !

Little set of personal custom brushes.
This set was made on Photoshop CC and is NOT compatible with Cs5.

I was trying to create a few brushes to emulate a nice "charcoal" render, and got the idea to use my own charcoals on paper. The result works quite well, I hope you enjoy !

I've been getting requests from people all around to share the brushes I use for my illustrations! Here are the brushes I use for basically -everything- when I paint. Some of them I've created myself, and others I've gathered from other sets through the years.

Hope they will be useful for you guys! Enjoy. :)

PS. These are all for Photoshop!

A collection of all the brushes I find myself dabbling with when doing environment artwork. Typically a select few are used much more than the others but they all certainly have their uses. The image in the background is made entirely using the brushes found in this set, with every brush being used at least once. I normally don't use them so extensively or so exclusively when painting and I certainly don't encourage it, but in the very least it shows what they can achieve. Please remember folks that good art is not all about the brushes you use. They are as much a tool as photoshop itself and should be viewed as such when you're still learning.

Some of the brushes have been made by myself and the rest have been tweaked from others that are freely available on the internet.

They should all work in Photoshop CS3 and above but I cannot vouch for older versions, sorry :(

Hopefully some of you will find them as useful as I have over the years :D

NOTE: These brushes are free to use and may be used to produce commercial work, but please DO NOT redistribute the brush set itself for profit. They have always been and always should be free for everyone. If you should ever see a website selling this set for money please kindly re-direct people here.

PHOTOSHOP ONLY (sorry brah's). 

Edit: I've done a live demo on how I use this smudge set and how the smudge tool behaves, the video will be put up in a couple of days on my new YouTube channel here: www.youtube.com/johnsilvaart , keep your eyes peeled!

By popular demand, you guys wanted more, so here's more 27 smudge brushes.
I created these brushes from scratch (Apart from 3 of them, sorry for not saying who, I just don't remember) due to the fact that I want to take my work have a more painterly feel..
Most of you know that I use smudge tool 90% of the time in my paintings, so this only made sense.

If you share these around, please make sure to put my DA link along with it, these took a lot of time to make and refine.

(I will make a youtube video on how I personally use them in my professional work, I'll edit this section out with a link to it when I'm done.)

Have fun!

Quick Tip's on how to use it:
- Put the smudge tool strength on 100%
- Apart from the top 3 brushes, for the most part if you want a nice texture, try to only tap with you tablet pen when using a smudge brush, the random setting will create a better mark of the texture.
- It works best in contrasty areas of your painting


How to load it:
- Right click on a canvas.
- Click on the cog wheel icon (or arrow depending on the PS ver.) .
- Select load brushes.
- Pick John Silva Smudge Pack Painter Edition.abr file.
- ???.
- Painterly profit!

Raw .jpg scans that I used for the brushes are collected here marcianek.deviantart.com/art/R…

tumblr post: marcianek.tumblr.com/post/4702…

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.

This is a set of brushes created for Adobe.
They asked me to create a set of basic brushes that could be used as a starter for digital painting.

Created and works under Photoshop-CC.
Make sure you adjust the window size of the brush selector, so you can take advantage of the "categories" system.

I hope you guys enjoy it !

Please visit this video to learn the setup: youtu.be/iipUPpCFGYg

These brushes are for Photoshop, and the above video will explain the setup and format of the brushes, which need to display as large thumbnails, with 9 brushes per row.

They are a combination of brushes I've made myself and those culled from friends, colleagues, and other great artists. A lot of them might have bizarre names, but they're all categorized so it shouldn't be a problem.

Enjoy, and I hope it helps!

This set represents the brushes I've created/customized and use the most lately in Photoshop CS6. Very good for adding a real-world feel and getting "happy accidents".

Also included is a 3000px texture of thick paint on canvas created from scratch which can be used in brush texture settings or as a layer. Enjoy, but don't even think about selling this. Free for all personal and commercial use in the creation of art. Just don't kill anybody.
