Hey folks!

EDIT: I have updated this tutorial here: [link] So go there to see the settings that I actually use for this brush.

DOWNLOAD BEFORE USING THIS!!! You'll want to be able to grab the brush and texture at their native size!!!

Here's a simple tutorial on how to get my signature gouache brush in Photoshop. As always, feel free to play around with the settings to get something better/more comfortable for you and your style.

Now you guys can stop begging me for this. XD

Take care and lemme know if you have questions!

Adobe Photoshop CS.

Sure thing!  I hope you enjoy.  Just be sure to play with the settings a lot and you'll get really cool results.

still the main brush i use for basically everything. including digital painting!!!
DrewGreen's avatar
Oh, you are too kind.  So glad you like it!  Have you modified it to suit your needs better?
loish's avatar
i usually lower the opacity so i can get a kind of painted effect :] but for the rest exactly like you make it here!
DrewGreen's avatar
That's awesome!  I've only recently been playing with opacity and flow with brushes, too.  It's weird that it took me so long to really experiment with them.  (I'm guilty of staying in my comfort zone for way too long, trying to fix that.)

yeah, i change brushes about once every year, hahah. opacity/flow are the only settings i mess with. so i know the feeling!
