So these are really the only brushes I use, period. I barely, ever, use custom weird funky brushes unless its for design purpose. I find this collection achieves exactly what I want, and haven't searched elsewhere. It's like my Holy Grail so I figured all of you digi painters could use them as well!

Now you might be like "Why such a small list?" I don't mean this in an arrogant way , but I can really achieve any feeling I want with these brushes, just get used to them, play with it and it'll work out! They did for me.

I have a run down below on what each brush is used for in a painting:

Brushes

Standard Brush: This is what I use to drop my basic colors when quickly slapping down what I want. I seldom use it for actual detailing, but if I need to block in thick patches I'll use this brush.

Detailing Painting Brush: My favorite brush next to the fur brush. This one is simply used to get those nooks and crannies. If I were to use the brush above for 25% of the painting, this would be the other 75%.

Lighting Brush You know all those lens flares, over bright lights, shiny glowing areas I do? This is the brush. Use it softly and you'll achieve a nice bloom in your lighting.

Detailing Lighting Brush For tinier spots, harder lighting areas.

Texture Brush: I use this brush mostly for pores, dabbles on the skin, bumpy surfaces, or just to give texture to skin in general. Works like a charm.

Hair Brush/Smudge Brush Pretty Self Explanatory. Do I start off painting hair with this brush? No, I use the Standard Painting Brush then I go over it with this brush to create the strands/etc. As for the smudging, this is my ideal color mixer when I need to blend tones, acts like a bristle brush and merges all those nice colors together to create a creamy feel.

Chalk Brush: I use this for clouds sometimes, smoke, or just patching in colors. Works better than I can explain.

Hard Ink Brush: This I use rarely, but when I do use it, it really helps. Usually for adding glare, or tight highlights on certian objects to make them pop. Like the girls earring.

Texture Brush # 2 : This one I use a lot to get nice pores, that sweaty look or just overall skin texture.

Cloud Brush #1-3: Used to paint clouds, nuff' said.

Abrams Lighting Brush: I love this brush. In my "INSIDE THE BEAST" image, all those lighting effects you guys talked about were used with this brush.

Speckle Brush: Used for skin again, or to dirty something up.

Debris Brush: Need to create dirt flying? Tiny bumps on a sexy leg? This is it sucka.

Fur Brush: UNF! My favorite brush. I use this for skin, fur, cloth, metal, sparks, debris, glass, anything. It's a hard shell to crack, but once you do..it's a GREAT brush.

Pore Brush: Literally my 489474th brush used for skin/pores.

Glass Brush: Used to create shattered glass, papers flying, etc.


Have fun!!

Also, all I ask is if you download them, I don't expect any credit. But at least fav the pack, so they can be seen by more users.

Thank you.

CAM & LENS
1. I’m shooting with a D80, a mid class DSLR, but relatively new with some fairly decent options & a Sigma 105mm so this isn’t a telephoto macro etc it’s a lens specific for macro, also the 105mm means decent working distance which is a huge help in my situation.

THE SETUP
2. Next is setting the scene for such shots, particulars will vary depending on your tap and the surroundings. I’m shooting in my toilet with my small crappy toilet sink.

3. I first setup the camera sideways on a tripod and make sure that I’m shooting straight directly at the water so I catch all the drip focused as sharp as possible, if you angle the camera up or down some of the drips at the top or bottom of the shot will be out of focus.

4. Then I setup a background, in this case I chose a blue dishrag that was on the floor and pegged it to objects around the tap so that when I looked through the view finder I could just see a running tap and a blur blue dishrag behind.

This is what the setup looked like: [link]

THE SHOT
5. Indoors, so the only light is provided from a 65watt globe which is useless and a flash is a must, external flash is a bonus (in this case I didn’t have one).

6. Particular camera settings were, Manual Mode, Shutter Speed: 5/1000 second (shows as 200 on the cam), F Number: F/7.1, Focal Length: 105 mm, ISO Speed: 100, Auto white balance.

7. Set flash to 1/8th of its strength, what would have been better is 1/4th of its strength then put tissue paper or something to diffuse the built in flash as it was very sharp and heavy as you can see. Now I adjusted the tap so it’s dripping suitably and took over 200 shots.

POST PROCES
8. After taking the time to select the best image by process of elimination, I convert the RAW file into a 16-bit TIFF in Capture NX, but you can use any program of your choice or edit the jpeg.

9. First I cropped the image using canvas size so it looked like it does, then adjusted the curves and gave it “increased contrast” which also added depth to all colours.

10. Next I used Hue/Saturation to desaturate the blues & cyans but only slightly. The next step was to use an un-sharpen mask to sharpen it and give it more definition, it also helps the minor motion blur and adds more appeal to the reflection in the droplet.

11. Finally I use the select tool to select everything Except the droplets and add a light Gaussian blur, this smooths out any blemishes that an ugly dish rag shows & helps eyes settle on the droplets as the focal point.

A few days ago somebody asked me about my drop photos. So I stumbled about this photo which is really nothing special. I just love this drop photos and the sharpness of it and decide to share it (just 4 fun, I know that this is a old and often used motive).

Just enjoy ;)
