The pencil that’s there when you need it. A standard graphite pencil with a variable opacity and the texture of a medium underlying 100 lb printer paper. Sketch lightly until your drawing shows itself, then push harder for darker confident lines.

A broad, messy edged wash brush with a variable width. This wet, light wash has a light fill, with a medium texture and dark grain flaws giving it a rich and spontaneous organic feel. A natural brush that can work at low opacities. At a reduced width Pasteup can also be used as a line or sketching brush but it shines as a broad and loose wash or fill.

A natural media watercolour brush which responds to pressure in both opacity and to a lesser extent, size. Useful as a line brush at small sizes while also being versatile enough to serve as a fill in wash. The Frontier brush has enough edge and surface texture to provide an organic natural media feel while at the same time remains subtle enough to not overwhelm the artists subject matter. Suitable for drawing sketching as well as painting.
Painted entirely with the Frontier watercolour Photoshop brush tool
A wet, grungy, realistic watercolour Photoshop brush with a medium dark grainy edge as well as a richly textured fill. Opacity tops off at around 80% with one stroke at maximum pressure allowing the artist good strong coverage at full pressure while maintaining a visible organic grain. A light touch results in edges only, or with slightly more pressure, a light wash.
