I received some questions about the program and brushes I used for my tree tutorial on tumblr.

The program I used is called MyPaint, and this is the custom brush I made for painting leaves. Feel free to use and modify the brush however you'd like.

I love this brush!
Could you make this one for clipstudio paint, too?

Do you think you could make this brush for photoshop as well?

I'm not sure how to; I don't know much about Photoshop brushes, unfortunately. I only own Adobe Photoshop Elements 2, which was released in 2002. It's... a little bit outdated. ^_^;

If you're comfortable with giving me the original file you used to create the brush (in photoshop it's usually a black and white file), I could create it and give it to you so you can give it out to whoever's interested!

It's actually just a basic circle brush that I tweaked the settings of, not a texture brush or anything. To make it, I picked a circle brush with pen pressure linked to the brush opacity, then changed the aspect ratio so that it became an oval, and experimented with the spacing, scatter/spray, and angle options. There was also an option for choosing how much the size of the paint dabs varied, so I set it to randomly vary in size a little.

You're totally welcome to make and post your own version if you'd like, and I'll link to it. I also have a friend with Photoshop, so I also might be able to make it the next time I'm over there. :)

Although I've been using photoshop for years, I'm not the best at making brushes with it haha. If you ever do get around to making it, I'd love to see it!

I got a chance to make it today. Hopefully it works! Here it is.

Ah, thanks! It seems blurrier than the original though, I would suggest turning Texture on and playing around with the settings to make it sharper. Photoshop isn't the best in making sharp brushes, from what I've seen. But man, thanks so much for taking the time to make it! I really appreciate it!

Mm, I was looking at the previews for each version, and you're right, this one does look blurrier. Thanks for the tip; I will check that out and see if I can make it sharper. And you're very welcome. I'm happy to make something people find useful. :)
