Hello everyone :)

Recently, after I've been working on many painting and kept organizing my colour swatch to be practical and simple.
I would like to share it to you and I hope it's useful. ^^

Many of you guys might wonder about green shade.
The reason is our eyes are more sensitive to green (yellow-green) than other, so I expanded it.

( For Photoshop )

So Ive been experimenting with how to in-cooperate a canvas texture into my work, and made this with my research.
So I thought I'd share it with you :)

Hello everyone!!

Please read

Alright there are many requested notes asking me many questions. I will explain them all here as well!

Which brushes are the best to use?
No, there is no best brushes. It's all depending on the each person.
First of all, I want to suggest that brushes are not the most important part for painting, but your practicing and hard working will make you paint better! ( I mean yes they are helpful when we use for specific things, and we feel comfortable to use them, so we feel enjoy painting. ) However, the best brushes for you are the ones that make you want to continue painting with them.
As long as you try and you like them!

From the brushes that I've shared, I used them all in their own specific ways. [ Basic Painting Brushes ] are what I used mostly before, and [ Winter 2012 brushes ] I like to use them for sketches and painterly style more.

I also still try to create new ones to see if I will like them even more! and yes I have found that [ Wet edge option ] and [ Color dynamic option ] can be useful to improve the brushes.
You will find that the new brushes set that I've made are included some options. ( You can download and try them from "Download" >>> ^^ )

What you need to know

* From the image above, the names are just for fancy and separate them from others! lol Every brush can be used for anything and it depends on you!

* For Photoshop only! ( Recommend for CS 5 and above, but if you have older versions please try them and I think they work fine )

* I don't need credit for this. I love brushes! and like to try making new ones. Please feel free to use.

Finally, I love to collect brushes from other artists and tried them all. I learnt them to see the differences and I really enjoy using them. Their brushes are amazing and I recommend you to try them all. ^^= Of course, they are amazing artists and thank you so much for sharing them to us all!

I don't use a lot of crazy brushes but along with the standard soft round, hard round, and chalk brushes this is a workhorse of mine when working in Photoshop. Simply add the .abr file to the Presets>Brushes directory in your Adobe Photoshop application folder. I hope you can get some use out of it!

Here are 4 of my basic brushes for Adobe Photoshop.  These are the brushes that I use in almost every one of my drawings.

The first brush is a smooth inker that I use to draft my drawings and for fine details.  The second brush is a hard ink brush that I use for my lineart drawings. The third brush is a soft scratch brush that I use for color blending and it is the brush you see visible strokes of in my paintings. The fourth brush is a harsh scratch brush that I use when I need more of the "strands" to show like in hair or fur.  It also provides good texture for grass when used in short strokes.

Edit: Looks like the brushes work in versions back to at least Adobe Photoshop CS2!

If you're interested in creating your own Photoshop brushes or to see how I use mine, check out my workshop video (link starts at relevant point in timeline):

For painting thingies in photoshop. Click 'download' to get these brushes

Ehh I haven't really been using my other brushes as much as these guys for the past couple months, so I thought i'd do a little updaterooni. 

My favorite is the messy one, second from the left. I use that guy for everything nowadays, until the end where I switch over to the fine detailing slanty brush.

-Flow is almost NEVER set to 100% in my paintings. Usually it's down between %20-%40. 
-Transfer, shape dynamics (set to pen tilt), and pen pressure are always on

I only made the last two (experimental and blocky), the others are found in various places on deviantart in various packs.

People often asked me what brushes I use, how do I paint, etc, so I thought...why not giving you EXACTLY what you want? So there you go, these are all the brushes I currently use for everything I paint, all made by me, nothing more, nothing less. So yeah, if you wanted to paint exactly like me, now you can do
Always remember tho, that every artist has his personal preferences about brushes, you just have to find the ones you feel more comfortable painting with!
Also these are for Photoshop, not sure if you can use them in SAI.......sorry 'bout that....

About rules and stuff: Use them as much as you want, consider them a gift for you all wonderful people. If you want to credit me too, then go ahead, that would be lovely c:

So here are some infos about the brushes:
I divided them in 3 categories, to better explain how they should be used:

-Painting brushes (These are the 'big' ones, its what I use 90% of the times). Sometimes playing with the 'wet edges' option might make things better, depending on the situation. Default is on.

1. Splashy brush, I use this for merging and texturing at the same time. Also great for clouds!
2. My main painting brush. <3 I LOVE THIS THING SO MUCH OMG ;u;
3. My 2nd most used brush, I use it for texturing too. I love it at mid-low opacity

-Basic brushes These are just super simple circular brushes, not much to say about these (:

4. Circular soft brush. I do NOT use this for shading! I use this mostly for lights and gradients, nothing more!
5. Circular solid brush, nice for general lining or if you need a strong brush stroke without anything fancy

-Misc brushes Some experiments that ended up kinda cool XD

6. 7. 8. These are just fun brushes I made to sketch super basic structure in my sci-fi stuff. You dont really see them in my finished works, because they just give an idea of how things will look like once Im done with detailing.
9. Hexagons. Just hold shift and swipe horizontally and you'll have a nice and clean hexagons trail. Again, I use it for my sci-fi paintings (:

and...thats it! Now go and paint stuff, k?

Rabbit loves you.

Concept Cookie Complete Brushes Download!

Our Brushes are finally compiled and ready to download in an easy one-click process. We want to thank our Citizen members and we hope you enjoy the brushes! ( Try the braid brush, it's my favorite ) We finally have our brushes available for you to download in an easy one click download. We took a look at the brushes that were available and consolidated them and took out the ones that weren’t necessary to include. In this case we are talking quality over quantity. These brushes have been tested and are ready for you to use. 

If you're not sure if you want to become a Citizen Member, You can download this complete brush pack for $5!

Download Your Brushes in One-Click HERE

First are the basic brushes, which are your “go-to” brushes. In my opinion, these are the ones you should be working with most, especially when laying down your foundations of a piece.  Most tutorials/livestreams I try to use the basic Hard Edge or the Chalk Brush to showcase how you don’t need fancy brushes, but they can be very effective at saving time and created detailed patterns/textures that would take much longer with just a basic brush. Hope you enjoy them!

The Complete Brushes (Citizen Only) Download includes the Skin, Hair, Chain, Stitch, Nature, Creature, Chaoes, Metal, Texture, and Extra Brushes! These are brushes that are meant to add texture, be more efficient with time, and give a piece something to work over/with. If you have any brushes you think would be a good addition, let us know! Below is an example chart of what each brush is and what they create! This guide can be used to see what brush would work best for you on a specific area. Lastly, try out the Braid Brush, it’s my favorite brush that I’ve ever created =]

NOTICE: No need to give credit back to Concept Cookie, just please do not redistribute them =]

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.
