33 Remarkable Photoshop Brushes That You Must Bookmark

33 Remarkable Photoshop Brushes That You Must Bookmark

The paint brush is the medium that communicates the artist’s intention onto the canvas. An experienced artist once pointed out that,

Most of the materials involved in painting are expendable. Just about the only tools worth protecting are your paint brushes.”

I’d like to bring this concept into today’s commercial painting programs, where the Paint Brush in Photoshop is perhaps one of the most precious and useful tools invented. Given the countless advantages of the Paint Brush tool, it is clear that it is almost as capable as what a traditional paint brush can do.  It is a best friend of web designers, professional photographers and graphic designers. We all know that the brushes you have in the library is never enough, so we’d like to present you with 33 more brushes that you must book mark!

    thanks. i like the scattering snow brushes the best. while this could be done fairly easily with brush presets, it’s even easier to use a brush set ;-)
