Tutorial - Texture Brushes

EDIT 5/8/13;
I got a DD?!?! WOW! Thank you soo much!!! :D
I don't even know what to say 8D

Now I kinda wish I drew that little cat better :D

end edit

A simple tutorial on making your own texture brushes. Or textures. Or splatter brushes....heck, even just your own brushes.
I am using Photoshop Elements 4 for this. If you have a newer Photoshop, or even a different program. And are confused on how to do this. I don't think I can help you, seeing as this is the program I am used to. And as far as Sai goes? I don't think you can do this in Sai. But if you can, please do tell me how LOL.

Well I hope you guys found this useful. And good luck to it!

AND BTW. The part about the nail polish being splatters?

That's how I made my splatters XD
So most of the time, when you saw blood splatters in some of my images, it was probably nail polish, scanned and made into brushes using this process xDD


:heart: KITTY :heart:

I'm just curious, how do you get the scanned picture to look so digital? Because when I scan pictures, they look like I took them with a camera(bad quality and such).
DJ88's avatar
Um, I guess you have to mess around with the brightness and such. And maybe do some erasing. I am not sure.

Hope I helped :\
