Texture and Pattern Brushes by kendrin Texture and Pattern Brushes by kendrin
A collection of 18 Photoshop Brushes (created in CS3) that I made myself and have used for different purposes over time.

Free to download and use in your own work as you will — personal or commercial application. No need to ask, just enjoy. No credit required, if you use them, but link back here if you want to share them with others. Not for resale.

If you wanna show me what you do with them, great. If not, no big deal.

Have fun.

EDIT:

Holy flamin' electrons, Batman! I never expected the response this post has received. It's at once gratifying and surprising to me. So, thank you, all.

For those that are curious, I've posted a journal entry about my thoughts around these brushes, including a few hints about how they were made and why. You can find the post at: kendrin.deviantart.com/journal…

Umm dose this count for Adobie elements it is Photoshop but dose it have the same brushes?
Reply

kendrin Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013
To be honest, I'm not sure. I imagine they're compatible, yes, since Photoshop Elements is largely derived from Photoshop itself. But, I've never had to try them to find out. A quick Google search, however, suggests they should work.

These are great!! I was wondering how you make the hair effect on the left side. I've been trying and nothing seems to work. 
Reply
:iconkendrin:
kendrin Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
It's done by layering values and paying attention to the flow of the lock -- where the highlights and shadows would be. I switched between three different values of grey... light, mid, and dark. (Generally, if it looks right in monochrome, it will look right in colour.) Mostly, I used the dark as a base, added the mid over top as the main body of the lock, and then the light sparingly as highlight on top. The colour was added via a colour-layer after, which basically included a fill and a clipping mask. 

I also changed the size of the brush. Bigger strokes form the base, smaller strokes get added on top. 

Basically, it requires patience and experimentation. I also suggest you take a look at a few hair tutorials out there. They can help you understand how locks flow and where the highlights and shadows fall.

I don't know. I've never tried. 

That said, I found a tutorial that says "Yes": graphicssoft.about.com/od/gimp…

My best suggestion is that you try it and let me know. :)

Thanks!

Could you make a tutorial on how you CREATE brushes? It would be ver helpful
Reply
:iconkendrin:
kendrin Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013
I may very well do that, sometime in the future. However, tutorials are tougher to create than the brushes themselves. (Or, rather, they're more time-consuming to create.)

In the meantime, I suggest you run a quick Google search on the subject "create brushes in photoshop" and see what that yields. There's a pretty good tutorial that introduces the basics of it at: psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/too…

And another one at: www.photoshopessentials.com/ba…

Both those tutorials only really cover the very basics, however. The real trick, once you've gotten the hang of those basics, is just playing around with brush tip shape patterns — if you look at the black images in the white boxes in my sample page above you'll see what the tip shape looks like for each of the brushes I've created and how they sometimes look very, very different from what you'd expect. So, experimentation really is key. 

Once you've got a basic shape you like saved (using Edit > Save Brush Preset), play around with the brush settings in the pallet menu until you find a stroke you like. Then save that stroke in the brush preset panel. (The tutorials above tell you how.) 

If you want to +watch me, you'll know when I release more brushes or a tutorial in the future — as well, of course, as any other images I might upload.

Good luck! Hi!
