How to create a basic set of brushes for PS by LadyAway
How to create a basic set of brushes for PS

The Brush Tool is the most important tool for a digital artist, but it's also one of the trickiest ones. When you're just starting, you get this feeling that you need a separate brush for every effect you want. The default brushes in Photoshop don't seem too useful for this purpose, but professional artists often share their palettes, so you can always download something more powerful.

The problem is that the more complicated the brush, the harder it is to use it properly. And if you observed these professionals at work, you'd see they use a simple round or slightly textured brush most of the time. You could give them this default brush set and they'd still paint a beautiful artwork with it. Why can't you?

Using Photoshop is not really about "pressing buttons" and waiting for the program to do something for us. You can't just take a brush, try to paint something with it, and search for a new brush when you fail. This isn't about brushes, but about the person who's using them!

In this tutorial I'll show you how to create a basic set of brushes. It will be smaller than the default set, and definitely less confusing. I'll also show you how to use them in the process of creating a detailed artwork. This way you'll understand how to create freely, without trying new brushes all the time.

10 Drawing Myths That Block Your Progress by LadyAway
10 Drawing Myths That Block Your Progress

Drawing seems like a fun skill. It makes it possible to bring your ideas out, to show them to others in shape and color. And all this with a few simple tools! No wonder that so many people dream of learning how to draw. Unfortunately, this kind of skill sometimes seems impossible to attain. Why is it harder than, let's say, playing chess or cooking?

In this article I'd like to show you that even though drawing is hard, sometimes you make it harder with your own mind. These mental obstacles stop you from learning and bring needless frustration. If you understand them, they'll disappear and you'll finally be free to learn!

Paint Realistic Long Fur Without a Fur Brush in PS by LadyAway
Paint Realistic Long Fur Without a Fur Brush in PS

Although there are so many digital fur brushes available, it's very hard to get a satisfying result with them. It's because they're tricky—they won't paint fur for you if you don't know how fur works. In fact, they make it even harder! 

In this tutorial I'll show you how to draw natural-looking long fur with only one, quite universal brush. Once you get it, you'll be able to use other brushes to accelerate the process, too!

Dragon Coloring Template FREE by LadyAway
Dragon Coloring Template FREE
I was playing with different methods of separating color and shading, and this one looks promising. In this file you'll find a shaded dragon, all you need to do is to put flat colors of choice. Six clipping masks were used, so you can paint freely without crossing the edges. The only problem here is sometimes you'll need to use brighter colors than intended.

What do you need to do to use it?
  • For educational use (to see how it works and to play with it): nothing! Just download and enjoy
  • For commercial use (to create own designs with it, to create adoptables and sell them):
    • Add to favorites
    • In the comments section invite one friend here by mentioning them, e.g. "You may find it useful, LadyAway"

That's all! Just remember:

  • You're not allowed to re-upload the PSD template
  • You're allowed to create your own designs with it and upload the resulting image
  • You're obliged to give me credit when uploading a picture created with it, linking back to the original file
  • You're allowed to sell designs created with it
  • Feel free to modify the lighting and add your own features

And if you want to paint scales like those, see the amazing tutorial by arvalis
