:bulletred: THIS BRUSH PACK FILE SHOULD NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE BE COMBINED WITH OTHER BRUSH PACKS FOR REDISTRIBUTION ONLINE ( sorry for the big warning, apparently people like going around and stealing brushes from artists who made them and making their own packs out of other peoples work. If you see this happening please report immediately. Original artists should get credit for their work. ) This brush pack is intended for Educational purposes only.

Personal Comments
My Gift to DA for the holidays! Over the past few months working on various childrens books I've had to make many of my own Photoshop brushes to avoid any copyright issues. So I've decided to share my brushes with DA! There are 100+ brushes in this pack. Designed to help recreate some traditional textures and styles you wouldn't normally see in digital work.

Examples of my recent works using these brushes

As with all of my brushes and resources these are free to use for what ever you want. All I ask is that you link back here if you do use them. For 2 reasons I ask this... so that others can find and download them and so I can see how you used them. I find it so interesting what people come up with. ^_^ Also please fav if you use, that way more people can find them. I'm all about sharing the love.

As seen on Charfade's Channel! Live broadcast on livestream that will show you how to effectively use these brushes. [link]

:+favlove: Creations from other artists who used these brushes. ( please link me to your deviation if you used these)

| Post a link in the comment box and I'll add you here! * note there is a two image minimum, and must be an image posted from your DA gallery, not external site links! Thanks! |

Hello :)

I found your brushes and would be using them for practice digital stuff :) For now I am not 100% sure if I will publish my work here, but I could send you some results via messages here :)

Thank you for your work, you help me a lot with it :)
