5 Photoshop Brushes for Painting Clouds by pixelstains 5 Photoshop Brushes for Painting Clouds by pixelstains

Hey guys, it’s been a while! My schedule is finally loosening up a bit, so I grabbed the opportunity to create a new brush set. I hope you’ll find it useful!

The set contains five different brushes:

  • The first brush is for blocking in the main shapes.
  • Second brush has an intense texture to it. Good for texturing your clouds.
  • Third one is basically the opposite of the second brush. It’s smooth and soft – good for hand painted details.
  • Fourth is similar to the first one but with much sharper edges.
  • The final one is a soft cloud brush for painting puffy clouds.

Tips:

Use them in combination with one another for an organic look.

These are just textured brushes, they are not magic. You still need to put in the work to make your clouds look good. Look at reference, think about lighting etc.

Use smudge brushes for edge control and texture control. You can download some smudge brushes  here.

NOTE:
All my brushes are FREE to use both in commercial and personal art.
I do not request credit or back linking, but if you do I'll take it as a kind gesture.

I used your brushes here and in some other works. Your cloud brushes (and all the others you made) are simply great! They do what they are supposed to do, I even made me a seperate pixelstains folder on the computer to put your brushes in...) So thank you thank you thank you :) Help me, I can't swim by SlichoArt

Are these brushes compatible with Photoshop CS4 or just later versions of Photoshop?
Reply
:iconpixelstains:
pixelstains Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2016
Some of the are, but unfortunately I don't know exactly which of them work on older versions of Photoshop. Usually if they don't work on previous versions somebody says so in the comment section - so I assume where there is no mention of that, it's safe to try :)
