This is the personal brush set I use for all my personal and professional work.
I've been using, upgrading and sharing this Photoshop brush set for over 10+ years I've been working in the digital arts industry, which is why I still want to offer it for free for everyone. These will also work with Procreate, but I haven't tested them.
The Photoshop brush set includes:
- 15 General purpose brushes
- 27 Painting and pastel brushes
- 16 Custom brushes

This video demonstrates how and when I use some of the brushes available in the brush set.
It also gives a general glimpse of my working methods and painting process.
About the Brush set:
The style and feel of my work varies a lot as I work both in very rendered and highly polished images and also do a lot of very rough sketches. It's fair to say all of these brushes are general purpose brushes that can be used in variety of styles. I've also included a few custom brushes to the set, however, I rarely use these.
I started making my own Photoshop brushes around 2005 when I was introduced to digital painting. I felt the brushes coming with Photoshop back in the day didn't offer the organic and natural feel of pastels, oil paints, pencils and traditional media . Iexperimented how to create brushes that would create this organic feel and I ended up with quite a few satisfactory results. Over the years some of the brushes stayed with me and some didn't. Every now and then I create a new brush if I'm looking for a certain feel or style for my work and if I find myself using that brush quite a lot I've included in the set I've shared.
