How to install brushes in Photoshop

As a digital artist who uses Adobe Photoshop to paint, one of the program’s biggest assets is the ability to create and install custom brushes. I have a few available for (free) download, which you can find here. While I find it fairly easy to install, some of you might…

Wacom Cintiq 24HD: one year anniversary!

Exactly a year ago today, I came home from a holiday to find a Wacom Cintiq 24HD  (graphics tablet/monitor) standing on my desk. A present for my 25th birthday, and then some Christmases, future birthdays, etc etc. You get the point. I’d had a Cintiq before. A model from 2008, that…

Photoshop Brushes for Digital Painting – Skin

It’s been a while since I’ve messed around with Photoshop brushes, but today I took this photo on Instagram and found that the milk foam reminded me of freckles. So I decided to make a Freckle brush for Photoshop, since those are really hard to paint freehand. I also made…
