I’ve decided to make my ‘Oatley Essentials’ set available for download. This set consists mostly of brushes that I made. There are a few that came from other places (friends, free PS resource sites etc…).
I Would Like To Highlight A Few Of My Favorite Brushes In The Collection:
Daisuke_Brush_Wild_83: This one is named after one of my favorite artists Daisuke “Dice” Tsutsumi. You can check his work out here to 1.) be incredibly inspired and 2.) realize why my brush was named after him.
Hard_Mask_100: is the brush that I use for creating crisp masks when I am doing VisDev work for an art director and I know that there will be a need to make changes quickly and/ or present many different versions of a design.
Square Angle Brush: Is for use with the WACOM 6D Art Pen. These sharp, rectangular brushes change direction as you rotate the stylus. They are great for getting a cool, stylized look to your paintings. They will work with a standard stylus, but you will have to change one thing. If you do not have the 6D Art Pen, you can change the ‘Rotation’ setting to ‘Direction’ inside of the Brush Editor in Photoshop. This will make the angle of the brush change in relation to the direction of your brush stroke as opposed to having the angle of the brush change in relation to the rotation of the stylus tip.
AluKlecks: is a cool texture brush that came from Goro Fujita. I have mentioned him on this site a couple of times. He’s awesome. Check out his blog.
Octoprimus: is one of the first custom brushes I ever made and I still use it today. It is good for achieving a messy, brushy look. It is named after a character I created because I built this brush while I was designing him.
Lastly, there are some more texture brushes that I did not make (I can no longer remember who did) and one brush that is a customized version of one by the company WACOM Technologies. (I believe that they are giving more of these brushes away for free on their website.)
…and thanks for reading, watching, listening, looking and for all of your comments and encouragement.
