Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 32 By Dave Nagel It's possible in Photoshop to create highly detailed skin textures--both animal and human--using nothing more than custom brushes. We've provided a number of these types of brushes in the past. But when you combine custom brushes with a few simple tricks with layer styles, you can create surfaces that have both detail and depth, making it possible to simulate, for example, the appearance of scales or bumpy surfaces. Our collection of brushes for Photoshop this time around is geared toward this approach. ...Read More »
Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 31 By Dave Nagel The brushes we've offered so far have been geared toward either texturing for 3D or painting in 2D. This time around, in our 31st collection of brushes for Adobe Photoshop, the brushes are designed for both types of applications. The collection includes 30 brushes for producing textile-inspired textures, such as burlap and wool, and can be used to create textures for 3D objects or to create backgrounds for 2D images. ...Read More »

Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 27 By Dave Nagel Skin textures are among the most difficult to create when you're working with 3D figures. Unless you have access to one of the more advanced texture creation programs (such as Maxon's BodyPaint 3D) or are satisfied using textures created by others, you don't have a whole lot of options. Fortunately Photoshop's painting tools will allow you--with a bit of effect--to generate skin-like textures, whether you're working with tiles or UV maps. You just need the right set of brushes. ...Read More »
Photoshop Brushes Series 26 By Dave Nagel Several graphics programs out there create "bristling" effects with their brushes by taking any given nib and simply stretching it over the length of a path. This has its drawbacks though, as the quality of the bristle is in direct proportion to the length of the path. In Photoshop, though, you can use bristle brushes that maintain a constant bristle quality regardless of the length of the stroke, but whose shapes and other characteristics can vary over the course of a stoke through various parameters. Here we present a collection of 15 such brushes for Adobe Photoshop CS. ...Read More »
Download: Brushes for Adobe Photoshop, Series 25 By Dave Nagel One of the great things about the paint engine in Adobe Photoshop is its ability to alleviate repetitive drawing tasks while allowing you to keep control of the drawing process. Most of our recent brush collections for Photoshop have been designed to take advantage of this capability by allowing you to paint textures and effects quickly into your image so you don't have to paint elements pixel by pixel or rely on plugins to take care of you effects for you. This week we have another collection along those lines, this one geared toward elements of nature. ...Read More »
Download: Custom Photoshop Brushes, Series 24 By Dave Nagel There are several commercial filters you can use to generate cloud, fog and smoke effects in Adobe Photoshop.

Enter our latest collection of brushes for Photoshop, a library of 25 dynamic brushes designed to help you create your own vapor effects with just a few strokes of your pen. ...Read More »

Download: Custom Photoshop Brushes, Series 21 By Dave Nagel For our twenty-first set of brushes for Adobe Photoshop, I've decided to create yet another set designed for producing hair effects.

Once again, this brush collection is geared mainly toward the creation of textures for use in 3D modeling, though these sorts of brushes work well in 2D compositing environments as well. ...Read More »
