What You’ll Be Creating The Brush Tool is the most important tool for a digital artist, but it’s also one of the trickiest ones. When you’re just starting, you get this feeling that you need a separate brush for every effect you want. The default brushes in Photoshop don’t seem too useful for this purpose, but professional artists often share their palettes, so you can always download something more powerful. The problem is that the more complicated the brush, the harder it is to use it properly. And if you observed these professionals at work, you’d see they use a simple round or slightly textured brush most of the time. You could give them this default brush set and they’d still paint a beautiful artwork with it. Why can’t you? Using Photoshop is not really about “pressing buttons” and waiting for the program to do something for us .
I have a brand new resource for my Access All Areas members this week, courtesy of Sivioco . Brush Lab is a collection of over 90 Brushes and 5 Actions, but these aren’t your average Photoshop brushes! The problem with a typical texture brush is it doesn’t really behave much like a brush at all. Rather than being able to paint with them, you usually have to click repeatedly across your canvas, building up areas of texture click by click. With Brush Lab, Sivioco has created a unique set of Photoshop brushes that solves this problem, giving you the ability to effectively “paint” texture onto your canvas for a quicker, smoother, more natural experience. Sam Jones of Sivioco creates simple tools and resources to help designers work better, faster, and smarter. His popular Creative Market store contains some exceptional resources for Photoshop and Illustrator…
Advertise here with BSA Here are a nice set of PhotoShop Brushes from BittBox. I’m constantly going back and forth between Illustrator and Photoshop in my projects, and I’m starting to pretty much make everything from scratch. I often have trouble finding brushes that are big enough for what I’m doing, so I just made my own. The smallest Brush in this set is 1989px! I was limited by CS2 to 2500 pixels, so that is as big as they get. The set contains 18 brushes.

I usually start off in vector and almost every time end up in Photoshop when it’s all said and done. Combining the vector shapes I create with…

What You’ll Be Creating Learn how to create a completely vector illustration that has the look of a handmade linocut or woodcut, in Adobe Illustrator. To find out even more about brushes in Adobe Illustrator, check out my course Mastering Brushes in Illustrator , here on Tuts+. 1. Create the Art Brushes When creating a linocut print, artists use special tools to carve designs into a linoleum block. The raised (uncarved) areas of the block form the image. The carved linoleum block is covered with ink, then printed onto paper or fabric. Because the artist removes material from the block to create the image, this is called a “subtractive” or “reductive” process.
