a small gift for you guys (brush textures)

I'm frequently asked about how I get certain textural effects in my paintings.

Well, here are some of my custom brush/paper textures. I use Corel Photopaint, but any app that lets you load a grayscale image as a paper or brush texture should be able to make use of them. Most are based on reference photos taken by myself and made (more or less) seamless, others are painted by hand. They are in GIF and TGA format, and come to about 2mb zipped. Click the preview image below to get the file:

Maybe somebody will find these useful.

If you have an questions or comments, fire away.

Hey man,

I've just started to try and learn colorpainting with corel painter, never did any colors before except in 3d. Even if I don't have the faintest clue what I'd be using them for, I at least am now aware of another great feature of painter. Thanks a bunch.

balistic, thanks a ton. Wish I had these when i started painting.
jmBoekestein, just go take a look at some of the later works in the speedpaint thread , more than enough examples of how the masters use these.

i think this thread should be a sticky because many of us newer artists r dying for brushes and something like this could really help out someone new to the forums(in other words...lets not let this get buried)

or you could make a new thread titled (upload brush sets) or something along those lines

its just an idea...

ps:ballistic i love these...GREAT brushes

Glad you guys are finding these things useful (or at least interesting). One of the reasons I got into Photopaint rather than Photoshop early on was that it had paper texture support long before Adobe added it to PS. However, from PS7 onward, the Adobe brush engine has been almost as capable as Photopaint's (and in a few ways stronger).

Can somebody help that guy get the textures into PS7? I'm afraid I don't have enough experience in it to tell him how to do it.

Load up the images on PS, and go to Edit>Define Brush. Name it the way you want and voila! it has been added to your brushes.

Thanks for the brushes
