    Borrowed Pencil


    A Soft 2B pencil with a relatively well-defined line and a wide dynamic range from light to dark making it a good pencil to take you from a tentative sketch to a finished drawing. I like it because I can start sketching lightly and then lay down a stronger ‘final’ stroke when I’m sure of my form, all without switching tools or brush sizes.

    Cheap Receipt


    A Soft, bold pencil with a rough texture. Good for bold confident strokes. The texture gives the appearance of a raised grainy paper also making it a good pencil for drawing over-scaled images that appear to be enlarged.

    Cobble Skate


    A Soft pencil with a sharp point. Something hard to find in ‘nature’. This pencil gives you a sharp, defined hint line when used with low pressure on the stylus, but widens out quickly into a more worn down tip with a softer line that still retains it’s soft graphite appearance and medium bond paper texture.

    Cuff Starch


    This medium pencil (HB) has a fair amount of texture at the lowest end of the pressure scale and starts out fairly bold. With more pressure, it produces a smoother, sharp edged dark line with minimal texture, like a pencil on smooth copier paper.

    Daily Fate


    A mid-ranged ‘default’ pencil with a fair amount of texture. This standard lead pencil has a rougher more speckled line than your softer Artist’s sketchers.

    Fax Pancake


    A soft Photoshop pencil with a smooth wax paper-like finish. This pencil lays down a lot of pigment and gives your lines soft powdery edges that feel eminently smudgeable.

    Go Cart


    A medium pencil with a fairly stubby line and a lot of texture. Like writing on soft paper with a concrete slab as your clipboard. Also suitable for simulating drawing on very rough paper or hand made card stock.

    Hen Range


    A Soft pencil with a flat minimally textured tone. The lead in this pencil has the occasional graphite flaw giving it the look of a common golf pencil.

    Humble Bug


    One of the more realistically responsive Photoshop pencils in that is has a very natural pressure response range and ramps up nicely from the lighter, but still fairly strong lines to a wider bold line and all the way up to a dark silky opaque blackness at the high end.

    Lead Steady


    A soft lead pencil that still has a sharp defined edge. This pencil tool has a soft, almost watery look to it’s lead-like pigment but the line definition is still sharp and clear. For when you want a soft look but don’t want soft fluffy line edges.

    Low Pony


    A Soft Photoshop pencil similar to a 3B that is great for soft organic artwork like figure drawing or still life sketching. While it gives a fairly bold line overall it is still capable of sketching in light hint lines at the lowest pressure.

    Marble Mill


    This hard Photoshop pencil has a sharply contrasted speckled texture which gives it a cut stone appearance when used as a shader.

    Maybe Sews


    A soft and fuzzy 4B Photoshop pencil that starts out woolly at the low end and has an almost charcoal-like appearance at the higher pressure. This pencil is soft enough that it doesn’t take much force on the stylus to reach the darker ranges.

    Mech Midi


    This mechanical pencil for Photoshop gives you a lead that sketches with a sharp defined line while still maintaining the texture of a lead pencil. Capable of fairly dark lines it remains fairly sharp tipped even at high pressure but is soft enough to give an ever so slightly tapered finish at the end of the line.

    Mech Mini


    A mechanical pencil that never wavers in its line width. This Photoshop brush will give you the sharpest line possible while still maintaining the appearance of a pencil.

    Mini Smiler


    A soft yet brittle Photoshop pencil with a flat nib and a waxy line. This brush has a stepped look with frequent cracks in its coverage. Use this for bold drawings when you want to give your sketch a distinct grease pencil appearance.

    Mud Muggy


    A Soft Photoshop pencil with a well defined edge. This pencil is crisp enough for tight well-defined detail sketching but soft enough to expand in width and darkness at higher pressure.

    Mud Slice


    This versatile digital sketching pencil has some qualities not quite found in the real world; you can get a well defined fairly dark thin line even at a relatively low pressure and with just a little more pressure you can also get a thicker line that usually comes only after wearing the tip down or switching to a different pencil/brush. Digital pencils stay sharp no matter how long you use them, so pencils like this one allow you to sketch with both sharp and duller lines without having to switch tools.

    Pug Lump


    A rough greasy pencil with some ‘give’ allowing it to taper slightly at the tips of it’s lines. Good for rough sketching, annotations and anywhere you might use a finely sharpened grease pencil.

    Re CC


    A sharp yet unpolished pencil that gives the finished drawing a very consistent clean architectural appearance. This pencil is also uniquely versatile due to it’s flexible width,  while always maintaining it’s crisp, fractured texture.

    Right One


    A very dull pencil with an inconsistent stroke and a generous amount of lead flaws. When you need the unpolished look of a child’s pencil doodle done with a pencil will do the

    Ring Chafer


    A medium hard pencil for Photoshop that has a noticeably sharp texture and a slightly erratic craggy line but maintains a pleasant and even overall tone. While it can have a fairly dynamic range when pushed, this pencil is a good one when you want to maintain a consistent value within a relatively controlled range.

    Run Canny


    A relatively soft, stubby Photoshop pencil for the simplest mid-range pencil sketching. This blunt pencil produces plain, clear even marks with texture that is subtle enough to let the lines be dominant over technique. Good for straight forward crude graphical design work where subtle shading and range of line widths would just be a distraction.

    Salient Bit


    A gritty pencil with a granular line that ranges from a fine sand to a crunchy dark furrow while always keeping an imperfect woolly boundary.

    Sips Winter


    A Soft bold pencil with a sharp powdery line. This dark brush has the occasional impurity giving it a few randomly spaced flaws that in the real world are caused by hard deposits in the graphite pencil ‘lead’

    Sleepy Keen


    A firm, hard rough 2H pencil for Photoshop. This brush has a crisp grain and a compressed value range making it a good choice for confident archival type sketches.

    Slo Glider


    A Soft and mushy pencil with a very light line. It starts soft and fuzzy and while it gets darker with added pressure the lines stay true to their soft roots no matter how hard you press.

    Sock Topper


    A sharp textured rough leaded pencil with a charcoal like start at the lowest pressure that ramps up to a thick sooty cover at peak pressure. A nice expressive pencil for quick gestural sketches.

    Standy Sit


    A stark, clumsy pencil with a crumbly texture. While best at broad strokes and defined form building, this pencil is also capable of light hint lines, all of them grainy.

    Stub Siding


    An ultra-soft light toned pencil with equally soft edges. While it does produce a very soft light line at lowest pressure, this brush will quickly ramp up to a dark almost opaque cover pretty quickly. This flexibility makes it suitable for both light shading as well as casual draft sketching.

    Tea Keel


    A hard grainy Photoshop pencil with a lot of tonal range and a ton of craggy texture. Even the lightest stroke feels full of purpose and intent as marks like these are not made by accident.

    Tin Softy


    This digital pencil brush has a very dark line at all pressures. Whether you’re lightly glancing the page or pushing firmly on the stylus to create a wider, bolder stroke you’ll get firm, rich lines.

    Tiny Thump


    A Soft (2B) pencil which has an intermittent, interrupted line at low pressure which gives it an initial hesitancy when lightly sketching. Bearing down a bit harder on the stylus brings out it’s full bold intentions.

    True Knot


    A very soft, dull pencil brush with a mid-range tone like those produced by very soft graphite pencils with a lower clay content. Suitable for sketching bold drafts.

    Tin Whittler


    Perhaps the harshest of all the Photoshop pencil brushes, this hard pencil has a highly textured tone almost approaching the look of a copy of a pencil sketch.

    Quick Tutorials, Tips and Tricks for using the Splatter Brushes in Photoshop

    (Tap/Hover images to see video)


    Pow (Splatter brush)

    • More Pressure results in a larger splatter
    • Keep the stylus pressed and glide to ‘grow’ the splatter spot you’re on
    • Use the “Zap” Photoshop splatter brush for sharper edged splashes

    Finger linger and Palm Linger (Mixer brushes)

    • Click on white and drag into the black for a white fingerprint
    • Start in the black and drag out of the ink spill for a dark fingerprint
    • Painting over the area back and forth will smudge and blur the fingerprint
    • Note: These are mixer brushes and the name begins with “MI” instead of “FX”

    Ink Drips that Splatter (Hi Splat, Splatex, Rinse Drip)

    • These three brushes simulate ink drops landing from high up
    • Hi Splatex has more texture than Hi Splat (which is opaque)
    • Rinse Drip is the most diluted and has most paper texture
    • Push harder for larger drops and wider droplet distribution

    Wet Splattery Ink Stains – “Romato”

    • This brush gives splattery wet stains like popped ink bubbles
    • Hold and move stylus to smudge or remove darker viscous ink bits
    • Use irregular patterns for more realistic stains
    • Press lightly for faint weblike ink stains

    Ink Spray Brush – “Sprinkler”

    • Good for adding spray to edges
    • Press down and drag in the direction you want to spray ink

    Wed Egded Ink Stain Painter – “Slop Stain” Photoshop Brush

    • Push Stylus harder for thicker stain
    • Stop and Release to leave wet edge
    • Keep stylus pressed (don’t lift) and paint over to remove wet edging
    • Push lightly for faded “wiped up” ink stain

    Drippy Ono (Drip Splatter brush)

    • Some brushes Like this one are ‘live’ and you can ‘sculpt’ the splatter until you lift your stylus
    • Press with medium pressure and move around to add or remove spray and splatter
    • Lift the stylus and the ink ‘dries’
    • Black stains will build up eventually, so undo and start again if you don’t like the pattern

    Trail and Spill in one Brush (Croco Nile brush)

    • Press lightly for an ink trail
    • Press the stylus harder to flood the area with a spill
    • Draw in circles on the spot to expand the splatter

    Quick Start Tutorial – How to use the Photoshop splatter brushes

    Requirements:

    To get the most out of these brushes you will want to use them with a graphics tablet (though they do work without one!)

    The 7 Mixer brushes may not work with anything less than Photoshop CC (though I am not sure about this)

    If you want to use them with the GrutBrushes Plugin you will need Photoshop CC 2014 or 2015

    50 Cloud Brushes and Tools for Photoshop – GrutBrushes Cloud FX brushes

    GrutBrushes Cloud FX are not stencil stamp brushes. These cloud brushes are dynamic and responsive. No two brush strokes will ever be alike. The brushes respond to the individual pressure of each of your strokes of the stylus.

    Turn your stylus into a spray can full of fluffy clouds. Pick a crispy cloud brush, press lightly for a slight whisp or choose a blobby cummulus and push harder to blanket your photo in delicious thick realistic clouds. You can see I got carried away here but take my advice and rather take it easy, the secret to realistic clouds is subtlety.  I’m going all out a bit to show off these brushes but a light touch goes a long way in creating realistic skies.

    With a bit of practice, a subtler hand than I’ve shown here and a judicious use of the undo button you can get some pretty realistic photorealistic clouds.

    If you pre-ordered the Cloud Brushes you can download them now on your account page.

    Photoshop Cloud Brushes in the GrutBrushes Plugin Panel for Photoshop CC

    Photoshop Cloud Brushes in the GrutBrushes Plugin Panel for Photoshop CC.  You can also use them in the standard Photoshop Tool Presets Panel without the plugin.

    Use the different brushes to make up beautiful skies by combining all the elements that go into a realistic sky full of clouds just the way you want them. Use the “Cotton Cloud” brush for a fluffy cummulus cloud and add crispy whisps around the edges with the “Kelp Cloud” brush. Create jet streak contrails with the “Jets” brush or carve away at your clouds with any one of the 10 “Cloudless” eraser brushes that have the same natural textures as the cloud brushes themselves.

    The Cloud FX set includes:

    30 Dynamic cloud brushes which have no defined texture, meaning they will never repeat or even show a visible tile seem as they have no static texture. You can draw over the same spot multiple times with a dynamic brush and never get the same pattern.

    Also included are the 10 static ‘Gumbo’ Cloud brushes which do contain a texture but provide certain fill textures to enhance the structure of your clouds. Use these brushes to fill in subtler web-like textures where the dynamic brushes may be too overbearing or lack a defined structure.

    The remaining 10 brushes are the eraser brushes which you can use to carve away at your cloud layers to shape the clouds to exactly and precisely the way you want them to look.

    2 of the dynamic brushes Aerodust and Aerogig allow you to shape the cloud particles by moving your Stylus around. As long as you don’t lift your stylus, you can shift and push the particles around like sand on a chalkboard. Once you lift your hand from the tablet, the cloud particles are ‘set’ in place.

    How Do I Get The Plugin Panel with the Cloud Icons that I saw in the Video?

    If you use Photoshop CC2014 or 2015 you can use the Digital Artist’s Photoshop Panel plugin, an extension for Photoshop that gives you thumbnail previews of the cloud brushes (and any other GrutBrushes you have including the free sampler set) it is free but you will need to download it separately here.

    Cloud Painting tips and Tricks

    Always start on a new layer

    This way you can have complete control over what the clouds look like and reduce the layer opacity to blend them into the image more. Cloud eraser brushes will not work on a flattened background layer

    A light touch goes further than a heavy hand

    Using a light touch with your stylus will not only give you a ton of flexibility and control over your clouds, it will also produce much more realistic clouds. It’s much better to paint multiple layers of clouds on top of each other than to press hard and create thick overbearing clouds. Subtlety is key and remember what you’re creating after all: clouds are made of water vapour with air in between so give them a lot of air and space to breathe.

    Use Layering to Create Texture

    When you apply multiple layers of cloud on top of each other, where they overlap can create beautiful rich organic textures, the more layering the more natural it will look. Remember that when you look at clouds you are seeing through multiple layers of water droplets, they way they overlap is what makes the shape.

    Erase frequently

    Undo to redo. As the clouds are unpredictable, get into the habit of drawing with your fingers on the undo keys, this way you can stroke on a cloud quickly, undo and redo until you like the cloud you’ve put on your canvas

    Use your Brush as an eraser

    change brush mode from Normal to clear to turn pp brush into an eraser

    ‘clear’ turns brush into an eraser

     

    Change the mode from Normal to Clear to instantly and temporarily turn any cloud brush into an eraser.

    Pick from your on-screen palette

    Clouds are rarely white in the real world, they are made up of reflected light from their environment. Use option/alt to click and pick your colours from your image, especially when working on a photo. Pick new tones frequently to vary your hues while keeping it integrated with it’s environment.

    Impasto Painting Quick Start Tips

     

    Here are a few quick tips to get you going with the Photoshop Impasto brushes

    To summarise:
    – Vary your stylus pressure and use short strokes for a more organic look
    – Use a flatter Photoshop brush to block in large areas
    – Press softly on your stylus to blend or soften texture
    – Push harder when you want more texture
    – Use alt/option to pick colours from your painting
