Edinburgh: Brushes - Part One by kalijean Edinburgh: Brushes - Part One by kalijean
Part one, because the file was too huge to put in one upload.

The set: 108 brushes made from pictures taken during a (long) walk through the city of Edinburgh. That's pronounced "Edinbrah" or "Edinburra" (roll the R's), by the way.

Grungy type wall and pavement textures, street signs, architecture, art, cafe menus, LOTS of wonderful graffitti, phone boxes, fly posters, signs saying NO fly posters, litter, fences (a couple with thistle designs), closed down shop windows, Georgian windows so characteristic of the city, a pile of tartan kilts, a rail of shawls and clothes, a stolen and dumped out handbag, traffic lights, alleys, road markings, my husband's bag of chips (fries to some of you) with brown sauce, even a piercing needle is in this set. Pictures taken in the Grass Market, the top end of the bridges, around Edinburgh University, Chambers Street, the Royal Museum, and a few other places. The needle as well as a board of nothing but pins/badges, and a few other pics were taken with permission inside Flip (the piercer there is very cool).

I worked really hard on this set, and all the photos used are my own copyright (I normally use public domain stuff, stuff I own, and free clipart in my sets), so I must ask for credit if you use these. Please credit my devart account or my livejournal, which is also kalijean.

Comment if you are taking these. PLEASE. I'm begging. It is a requirement for taking them. Even if it's criticism, I don't mind :) I worked intensely on these, and feedback will mean more to me than you know. So few people usually comment on DeviantArt.

Made in Adobe Photoshop CS, image pack here.

Thank you for the trio! I cannot wait to get them open and play with my digiscrapping and art journaling.

I forget which flash drive I have these on, so I'm back for them.  Someday I should walk around Washington DC and do the same thing.  There should be a brush pack like this for each big city!
- Wooo -

orachel Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2008
Thanks so much for the obvious work and effort you made to put these together! Not sure what I'll do with em, but I adore em all, so I'll probably create some projects around them. Composition on these is so intense! I'm officially addicted to your goodies. And the fact that you do image packs is hugely helpful for me as well.

Best, and I'll keep crediting and downloading as long as you keep making em!

tree-lights Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2006
These are magnificent, even if it took my pathetic little computer forever to download. Now all I have to do is convert them for GIMP, and I will at last have perfection.
