More Presets Than You Can Shake A Brush At

Set #5 is one of my favourites. It’s called Cloud_Brushes_by_JavierZhX. I believe this was downloaded from FreeBrushes.com, but you can visit his Deviant Art portfolio here.

My Cup Runneth Over…With Brushes

Sample #4 – Suddenly_Spring_brushes_by_gvalkyrie…again, found at FreeBrushes.net. I love the background in this one, especially the light/pollen effect.

Even Moar Candy!

Sample #3 – Paisley Doodles by Mel. I believe I found this set on FreeBrushes.net, too, but you can check out her site over at Mel’s Brushes. Not only does she have brush presets, she also has a bunch of digital scrapbooking material, decoupage images and clip art.

More Candy!

Here’s the next sample! Fog__feathers_and_smoke_by_arrsistable also found at FreeBrushes.net

New Candy!

Hello everyone! I spent a few hours playing around in Photoshop last night. I got myself a few new brush sets and colour pallets. I haven’t really done any work with the pallets yet, but I had a chance to experiment with the new brushes. I made a few test pictures using the various brush sets and I figured I’d post them up here over the next couple of days.

Hope you enjoy the samples!

This first set was Galaxies_bySunira. I found this preset on FreeBrushes.net.

That stuff I was talking about….

I spent some time yesterday working on the Red King. I wanted to paint it using watercolour, but I ended up using Photoshop instead. I get really nervous about painting works that I’m especially proud of. You can’t un-paint something, and I get anxious that I’ll screw up and ruin my original. Because of my anxiety, I rarely follow through with painting and that’s kinda sad. 😦

Like I said, however, I REALLY wanted to colour this image using watercolour. So I decided to be proactive and learn how to make watercolour effects using Photoshop. I found a great tutorial on how to set up textured paper/brushes, etc. Check it out if you’re interested.

I haven’t finished the colouring yet, but I’m pleased with the way it’s turning out. Enjoy the sneak peek!

 

Working On The Next Skinner Co.

I decided to photograph the various stages of creating today’s Skinner Co .

If you’d like to see the whole comic, head over to flashpulp.com

I work with five layers in adobe photoshop.

      • The bottom layer is a white background.
      • The second layer is the text box where I write the memo.
      • Layer three is the the line that separates the comic from the text box and the website/copyright info.
      • The fourth layer is the colour, but only work on this layer when the last layer is done.
      • The top layer is the rough sketch/ink layer. I draw the concept of the comic, then fix up the lines as I go.
