Useful brushes
« on: February 01, 2009, 03:41:05 PM »
I havenít read all of the previous posts (Iím working on it!) but if it hasnít been
mentioned before, I have found Bruce Nagelís free Photoshop brushes handy, and
thought that they might be useful to others. He has sets for skin texture and for hair.
Often itís difficult to make those areas look natural.

You can Google to find places to download the various brush sets. Note whether or not
they will work on your version of Photoshop (the ones that Iíve tried donít work on
versions before 7).

Some that you might start with are Series 27 for skin, and Series 36  and 43 for hair. Iíve
found it helpful to make a new blank document and run a test stroke with each of the
brushes in a set, labeling it with the brush number. That way I can refer to the sheet to get
an idea of which brush might work in a particular situation, although all are adjustable in
the Brushes Palette.

Thanks to all of you for such great tips and links!

My apologies to Mr. Nagel! His first name is David, not Bruce! I hope that no one tried to Google him yet!

Thanks Cathy. Sprinkled throughout the Forum you will find references to these brushes. With time they get harder to find, but here on our Tutorial page is some great links: http://www.operationphotorescue.org/tutorials/
