Matt's Kirby Crackle collection for MS5/CSP

Matt's "Kirby Crackle" brushes collection

I have been trying for a long time to render the Kirby crackle effect, by hand or with a (digital) brush. It's not simple as it seems! Studing this issue, i created a set of brushes for Manga Studio 5/Clip Studio Paint, that have some slight differences one from another, except for the "Sqr K" series that is a little more different.

In the "K" series (without any other name except "stroke" or "crackle") the spots are almost perfectly circular. In the "Raw K" series the spots are more "handmade". The "X-Raw K" series has a more enhanced handmade effect. Finally, in the "Sqr K" series the spots are squares; i made this series for fun, to try to see how it could be having square spots in a Kirby crackle...

I mean the "stroke" brushes most suited for fillings and the "crackle" brushes most suited for energy beams, explosions or something (if you don't know what I'm talking about please search on the internet for "Kirby crackle"!). Numbers refer just to the order of creation, and since brushes descend one from another, I kept them.

These brushes are available in Clip Studio Assets:…

Thank you for your appreciation and your feedbak. Someone asked me the same thing some time ago, and I answered him that I would have done it, sooner or later. Unfortunately, I should recreate the brushes for PS, because PS and CSP cannot share the brushes. I should do that, it's my fault.
