Pencil Brushes by BenHickling Pencil Brushes by BenHickling
Pencil Brushes!

Here’s a set of pencil brushes I created for Photoshop (versions CS3 to CS6) that re-create a more traditional sketchy look. I’ve always wanted some decent pencil brushes for Photoshop, but I could never really find what I wanted, and there’s SO many brushes floating around these days, it made it even harder to find what I was after. The solution? Make my own, just like I did with the hard square brush I posted a while ago!

NOTE: These will NOT work in Photoshop CS2 or lower

You can buy the set at the link below:

>>> Purchase Sketchyfun Pencil Set #1 <<<


How to load the brushes:

1. Extract sketchyfun pencils CS5.abr or sketchyfun pencils CS6.abr from the ZIP file you just downloaded. Extract it to your desktop or a folder you can get to easily.

1. Create or open a a new image

2. Select the brush tool then right click anywhere on the document window.

3. Click on the small arrow or cog button (depending on your version of PS) in the top right corner of the brush panel that appears, then choose Load brushes. (You can also choose Replace Brushes if you wish to replace your palette of brushes with the ones you're about to select)

4. Browse for the Photoshop brush file that you just extracted (CS5 or CS6 depending on your photoshop version�) then click OK


Hope you enjoy using them!

I don't have CC, but brushes are usually forwards compatible

I have a question. Are the brushes supposed to look like this?

[link]

The last ones seem to be okay, but the ones at the top doing really have the crisp texture shown here? I have PS CS5 and I double checked to see if they all had the texture checked off in the brush settings. Still, nothing.

Have you tried using the CS5.abr brushes instead? They were designed to work better with CS5 than the CS6 version of the brushes

I purchased them from the website.. I looked around and there are no alternate versions to download ^^;

The folder only had one .abr file, not two.

I've purchased these brushes from your website and I put them in CS5 but they don't have the same texture as shown above in any size... I only got one kind of brush file in the extract for I dunno what version.

Interesting! Do you work only in Photoshop or do you start with real graphite, too?

I rarely draw on paper these days, pretty much everything I do is done on computer now. When I use photoshop it's usually for painting, I don't do a lot of sketching in it as I have other programs for that, but I figured these brushes would be useful for people who do like drawing in Photoshop :)

Which tool out of the 5 did you use to sketch Coco?
By the way these pencil sets are amazing.
