Hey there,

Yang Xueguo presents a quick overview of the creation of super-heated furnace in 'Tower of Evil' for an end-of-week tutorial. I gave him a little time also to show his 'Good Brush' pack he devised for his Photoshop work too. You can download it and try his pack yourself. His piece attained Master status in EXPOSÉ 7. Click, scratch and sniff, comment.

It may be the best tutorial I've ever read.
It begins by a beautiful painting, contains advice on how the process, the objectives and many other simple things you never see in a tutorial and on top of that it provides you with a magnificent brushset with every details you need to use it.
That is why I, at last, stop lurking in the dark corners of this forum and write my first post. Thanks

NB : We appear not to be able to download the brushset :D

Awesome work... reminds me of a cross between Alex Grey and Dali.

Also, thanks for the brush set... one of the best I've seen.
(For anyone having trouble I was able to download it by using the click HERE (http://depositfiles.com/en/files/3cb5qqclm) link rather than clicking on the direct download link at the end of the article.)

Once again great work Yang!

Any chance CGTalk could host his Good Brush file??? Heck I'll even put it up if he wants. But his host is dead and I can't get it. Yay for free file sharing...

Great image and a really good brush set.

I really, really hope that they'd update Photoshop's brush system some day. It'd be really useful to be able to categorize and sort brushes and quickly create custom brush sets like in Painter. Now, every brush is in one big list and it's kind of a mess.

By the way, yangxueguo, reading that manual, did I understand correctly that these brushes are for non-commercial use only? Just want to clarify that.

Sorry ,maybe I didn't express clearly about the free of using brush,I mean is the brush can use to any work of commercial,but I don't want it for resale by anyone,I hope it always free for all!

For the brush set, all I can seem to download is the RAR file. If anyone can tell me how to get the ABR file from there that would be great thanks.

Double click that same .rar file, Jumblez.

It'll magically turn into the .abr and a manual.

I was hoping for some magic but it's not working. I think it might be because I made the default program of the file to Adobe Acrobat so now when I double click it just opens it in that and I can't figure out how to remove the default program.. if that is the problem??

you need to download a free app called winrar (http://www.rarlab.com/)
then right 'extract here'

This is just what I needed! I've started doing a bit more 2D work to get my concept and composition skills, colour and light skills a little more developed and refine. Your brush examples and more importantly quick suggestions on how they should be used is awesome.

Thanks! Is all I can say.

I have to thank you for the brushes as I find the default one's in PS to be a nuisance...beautiful painting and interesting tutorial as well. The painting reminds me of Wayne Barlowe's pilgrimage to hell series (which is a compliment) which is well worth checking out if you can.

Cool image and tutorial...i always struggle to find the right brush, so i stick with basic brushes, but you've inspired me to try something new, so thank you and good luck with your art.

Hey, I am a new member and for some reason I am having a hard time downloading the brushes. If I click on the RAR file it just wants to open in Quicktime or textedit.
I tried to download the WINRAR app but it seems it is for PC only and I am on a MAC.
If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.
Thanks
Michael

Hi Mike,

The brushes are definitely NOT PC only. On the Mac, as you click the link, press your ctrl button [next to option] to open a small drop-down menu. Dropping down to 'Save link as...' will open the dialog for where you want to save it. The same menu can be obtained with a right click of your mouse. Don't rename it. It will begin to download as you press 'return'

If you have any problems decompressing it from the .rar, you may have to update your Stuffit. (v.13 is free)

I am on a MacBook Pro.

This was a superb tutorial, and the brush set is a welcome bonus. Love the artwork as well, Yang! Thank you for offering the set.

One question for the forum at large: Users of this set, have you had Photoshop crash when using the blur set? All the others work well, and I am using them regularly, but my program crashes anytime I try the blur specific brushes. I am curious if it is a common issue, and if anyone has found a way to make them work well on a Mac.

Thanks!
