Need Awesome Brushes!



  • Hi Illustrators!

    I want to start adding some more textures to my illustrations and I am looking for brush sets.
    Do you have any recommendations of brushes you love? (Photoshop please)

    Thanks πŸ™‚



  • @Gabby-Correia have you downloaded Kyle's brushes? They are free if you have a Photoshop subscription. Kyle's set of brushes has more than I know what to do with πŸ™‚ I also get a lot of use out of the free ctrl paint brushes. I downloaded them years ago so I'm not sure if they are still available...it looks like they might be, but they are definitely less about texture and more a solid set of basic brushes. Hope this helps.

  • GrutBrushes has a ton of brushes. I bought they're bundle in discount one or 2 years ago, and haven't even been able to explore them all.

    Also, you may already be aware, but since I wasn't and just found out this year 😲 , in photoshop you can add the legacy brushes and there is lots of great brushes in there.

    These are more specific, but you can see if you like justin gerard brushes. I can't live without them. They have a more textury, kind of watercolor style.



  • Hi all!

    I have photoshop CS4 bought back in 2009.... Anyone have suggestions for brushes compatible with my antique program? Those brush suggestions @TaniaGomesArt are gorgeous!!! I wish they could work with CS4. I think I may just have to resort to making all of my own. Thank goodness for the class by Lee!



  • @Gabby-Correia I like Retro Supply and True Grit brushes. I use mine in Procreate, but they also make them for PS and Illustrator. They’ve got some great stuff, very organic and trad-looking.



  • Thank you everyone for your suggestions!! Looking forward to exploring them all πŸ˜ƒ
