Compatible with Photoshop 7.0 or higher

You must have a pressure-sensitive tablet to use these brushes

High-caliber weaponry inside:

Here is a set of tool presets that I've created, tweaked, and used on actual work over the last couple of years. These brushes are among the best at what they do.

Included in this arsenal are:

  • 2 types of color brushes

  • 2 types of color pencils

  • 3 drawing pencils with different lead types

  • A fine-linework pen

  • A dry marker that can change wetness

  • 2 types of shading brushes

  • 3 types of shading pencils

  • The ultimate sketch pencil

  • A watercolor brush

  • And 4 types of erasers!

These brushes, especially the pencil tips, DO NOT get blurry when used at large sizes. They are 300dpi native, but can be used at any resolution. :nod:

You will suffer no change in behavior if you grow or shrink your brush size on the fly.

They were built for that behavior. :XD:

How to install:

  1. Download the Sketch Arsenal to a folder on your computer

  2. Open Photoshop

  3. Go to Window -> Tool Presets

  4. Click the dropdown menu in the upper-right of the Tool Presets palette

  5. Select "Load Tool Presets..."

  6. Find the folder with the Sketch Arsenal inside and load it

  7. Click and turn on the "Current Tool Only" checkbox in the bottom-left of the Tool Presets Palette

  8. Select the brush tool, then a tool preset, and start drawing!

How to remove:

Simply click the dropdown menu in the upper-right of the Tool Presets palette and select "Reset Tool Presets..."

Sample work:

All pieces below are 100% digital and created with presets from the Sketch Arsenal

Hope you have fun and push this arsenal to its limits! Check back for updates. :XD:

Do you have this in an older version of photoshop? I have CS6 and am on an older model computer so can't upgrade just yet.

I have Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC 2017 but they both say that the file is not compatible with this version of Photoshop. Do I need an older version of Photoshop?
I'm asking because I really want to try these brushes. I tried the abr already but the tpl would be nice to try.

I fixed the my problem! The download links above don't give the correct file. The one on the top right side worked like a charm.
