Photoshop 7, CS-CS6, CC
Photoshop Elements 2+
GIMP 2.2.6+

A set of Photoshop brushes made up of various ropes and chains. This includes several cords (like for trims on fabric) and jewelry chains, as well as the more traditional, rugged ropes and chains that you'd find in your local hardware store!

They can all be "linked" together by using the same brush over and over, and should be seamless if done properly.

Many of these are extremely high res (2500 pixels high/wide) and very detailed!

Hi :iconredheadstock:

Thank you for making this brush. I used it in 1 commission pic and I can use it more of your stuff in the future.
(I will tag you when I have permission from customer to public commission on DA + It's NSFW pic and I'm not sure if you're okay to tag in it or not)

But.. I can do a promote journal about your page (DA and your official page), just tell me. I will make a journal to credit your work x)

I don't see why everyone is fussing over GIMP. People keep saying its better then photoshop but i can't get it to do much besides converting files.

I think people fuss over it because Photoshop used to be a lot less accessible, and extremely expensive, whereas GIMP was free.

However, I've never used it, so who knows for sure. :)

I use GIMP. Photoshop had alot of programming benefits as far as tools and ease of use is concerned. However, I did start using GIMP because it was free - and still use it because I understand it.
If you really spend the time learning what it can do, then GIMP IS great.

I'm sure that's true, based on how closely its modeled after Photoshop. If it works for you, that's great! :)

I am a 5 year Gimp veteran but now use Photoshop after college taught me it. Layer styles are the best. I still go back to Gimp from time to time for a few things not covered in Photoshop or stuff I don't know how to do in Photoshop yet

I'm afraid I don't know much about GIMP, never used it. However, check out the tutorial for installing brushes on my website (, it includes GIMP instructions as given by a few GIMP users of my brushes.
