The Sketch Arsenal by thatLD The Sketch Arsenal by thatLD

DOWNLOAD


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.

Discovered something cute while sketching, if you shrink theultimate sketch pencil down to 1px it's the perfect size to make stars. Run it across your sky with a few different colors and it'll look beautiful! Unlike other 'star' brushes I've seen it actually varies them enough that it looks natural.

The tool preset for the Sketch Arsenal? Or Photoshop CS6?

Instructions for how to install the Sketch Arsenal are in the artist's comments above.:nod:

I wonder if this will work with photoshop elements?
Reply
:iconthatld:
thatLD Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2016  Professional Filmographer
I'm sorry, they only work in Photoshop 7.0 or better.

Photoshop Elements isn't able to read .TPL files.

However, it should be able to read an .ABR file.

This is sort of the basic version the Sketch Arsenal without the extras that .TPLs provide.

Hopefully, it's something that you can use, regardless:

Let me know if this works for you.

this is not working for me in CS6, it shows up in the list, i click it, but when i draw its just a fat line with no options to change it, i can't for the life of me work out how I use any of the features.

Really?

Hmm. Is it like that for any tool you pick from the Sketch Arsenal? Or is that for the pencil only?

Just looking to narrow things down and find a solution.

Sorry I couldn't try them, sometimes I comment to fast, so I don't have PSD, therefore I can't use them, but they still look pretty good so I'll make sure to share them. :'(

Thank you for those !

Unfortunately I was unable to install it, running Photoshop CC 2015. Not a problem of knowing how to, but it doesn't recognize the file. So, I let it go.
Anyway they look great from what I can see here. They are not for me I guess. xD

I use it in CC practically every day. Are you sure you were installing it as a Tool Preset and not as a regular brush file?

Just curious. Helps to know the trouble that others run into. :nod:

Yeah, of course ! I was following the instruction I read on your post, and even some from others... But it doesn't seem to recognize the file. Even my Mac cannot in fact... Maybe it can comes from here ?

kofee-cup Featured By Owner Edited Apr 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay, you know what ? I'm a really stupid guy. I re-downloaded the file and it works well !

I'm so sorry for the trouble, specially for that. Anyway, I can say that they are working well on a Macbook Pro 2015 with Photoshop CC 2015.

And, just saying : they are just perfect. Thanks a lot, really. :)
