Photoshop Brushes for Hard Surface Sketching

By pixelstains
875 Favourites

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I uploaded a new brush set.

So, recently I’ve been on a robot drawing frenzy and I thought I’ll upload some brushes that I use for hard surface sketching.

For brush requests, ideas for future brush sets, or related questions you can email me at brushtip@pixelstains.net

The brushes are pretty self explanatory, but I’ll add a short description below anyway.

  • I use the first brush to establish planes, the gradation on the side makes the strokes feel a bit more dynamic.
  • Second one is a triangular brush, I use it for the same purpose as the first one.
  • The third brush is a rectangular textured brush. I like to use this to doodle around and find shapes.
  • The fourth brush is mostly for shading curved surfaces, I use it in combination with smudge brushes.
  • The 7th brush is for cut lines and other small details.
  • The rest of the brushes are basically just patterns, pipes and mechanical shapes I created for my recent sketches.


Design with values, add colors later.

For a more appealing effect use the brushes in combination with smudge brushes. You can find some smudge brushes here.

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.
