Photoshop Brushes for Drawing When people think of Photoshop, they mostly have this picture of a photo-manipulative software in their mind. Theyre not wrong, but they forget that quite a lot of illustrators and artists use Photoshop to create digital art, art for cartoons, comics, and more. While you wont use tools like the liquify tool too much, one thing you will be all over during the process of creating digital illustrations are Photoshop brushes for drawing. They are what makes the whole piece of art different from just manipulating regular cartoonish photos. They give you a vibe that you can find in real paper art. These brushes are nowhere near the brushes you can see in the free software you get with your OS, like Paint – they are so much more sophisticated. Besides changing the type of the brush and the size of the brush, you can manipulate it so heavily that you can even copy a specific style or a particular artist from the „real life“. Whats great about Photoshop brushes is that you get quite a lot of those right when you start. There are categories and types in those categories that you can use right away. Some people have made brushes specifically for certain situations – brushes for creating cartoon hair, brushes for creating wildlife textures, brushes for mimicking bubbles. There are even brushes that make a drawing look like a Renaissance pencil sketch. Its effortless, practical and it will add a certain vibe to your drawing - just pick the right style. By changing the hardness, the orientation, the mirroring, the spacing, the roundness, the opacity, and the flow, you can get unique movements that are precisely what your client wants. If youre creating the art for yourself, youll know which style fits you more than others as well. Once you realize that you tend to use a specific type of brush more than the other, you will maybe find the need to create your own brush presets. There are many tutorials online on how to do that, but the most important thing is that you know exactly what you need and how they can be categorized. If you gain an understanding of that, you can also start to sell them alongside the artwork that you sell, if you do. This is an easy business upgrade for you. Photoshop brushes are like no other brushes and there isnt too much software that can even compare to what Photoshop gives you when it comes to the level of personalization you can reach as an experienced artist. The brushes are a great, and most of the time completely free way to take your Photoshop editing and drawing to the next level – download them, expand your knowledge about art, and enjoy the process of creating it.
