Fun with brushes...


Note: Added bottom pic later.

Here is an image I made this afternoon while playing with some new PS brushes I found on the net. As with everything on this blog (except for some of the models) this was a quick job - I promise I'll post more serious projects someday.

Also, sorry about the lack of posts for the last couple of months - thankfully I'm still working so that keeps me pretty busy. The game I'm working on might be ready for beta soon so hopefully that will let me show some work off.

Those are some nice brushes, man! They add some great texture to the pieces. The knight's shoulder looks cool and has some nice energy. How long did you spend on these?

s@#t this quick stuff is quite impressive! man i need to get back to workin in photoshop. i'm forgetin how to use it.

Thanks guys!

I probably spent ~3 hours on the knight and about 4 on the other (roughly).

I hope to make my own brushes someday, but it's good to use other peoples first to get a feel for what makes a good brush.

These are really nice, I can tell you used special brushes. Did you make them yourself or did you get them from Digi Paint class while still at Cogswell?

Thanks Jill - I actually found the brushes at conceptart.org recently. If you are interested in trying them out I'd be happy to email them over.

I really like the one with the knight! It's got a nice dark, foreboding feel to it. Are you going to work on it more later? :0

Cool! I'm glad you like it :D

I don't expect I'll go back to either of them at this point. I'm really most interested in the first stage of paintings right now, so I'll probably focus on refinement later on.
