Here are some really, really cool brushes from many different sources at Vandelay Design’s blog – and they are downloadable for free! Brushes come in useful in more ways than is at first obvious. Just one massive sweep across an entire background using one of these babies at a ‘humungous’ setting will be so inspirational you’ll spend days studying the possibilities of the other variants. Not to mention actually drawing a picture with them….
I see comments are now closed on Vandelay Design’s blog. Well I’m sure he was deluged with such tsunamis of gratitude that he just couldn’t take it anymore. But – thank you so much, guys.
So far I’ve looked at those by Jay Hilgert of Bittbox who is responsible for the sample reproduced on the left and Blogspoon Graphics who does watercolour brushes and also spraypaint brushes as far as I can gather from the little I’ve breezed through so far. There seem to be around a hundred others, including birds, wings, leaves, grass, sparkly light effects – time doesn’t allow. It’ll take you … a long time. I’m retiring exhausted and going off to get a sustaining coffee.
I think my next job is going to be exceeding beautttttiful…. I feel massively inspired. Not sure why I’ve never gone looking on the net for new brushes, but I didn’t. It just hadn’t occurred to me.
