Bird Feather Brushes by Mintoons Bird Feather Brushes by Mintoons
I got this idea after I saw a pack of fur brushes around here. I pretty much did a Google image search for bird feathers and found a helpful picture that documented specific feathers on birds (the tail feathers, plumage feathers, etc). Using the pen tool and the image as a reference I was able to make a brush tip in the shape of each feather.

Frankly I wouldn't recommend using these brushes for wings, but you can try. To use the brushes, make strokes starting from the bottom of the bird (or creature) and then work up towards the head for a realistic overlapping feather effect.

Use however you want.

Which version of Photoshop are you using? I made these a long time ago in CS4 I think.

I've been looking for a way to texture a bird creature sculpt I just finished the other day and these are perfect!  Thanks for sharing.  It's just for my personal portfolio, but I'm going to credit you when it's finished.

I think people set the brushes as stamps so people can figure out their own settings.
