Pencil Brushes!

Here’s a set of pencil brushes I created for Photoshop (versions CS3 to CS6) that re-create a more traditional sketchy look. I’ve always wanted some decent pencil brushes for Photoshop, but I could never really find what I wanted, and there’s SO many brushes floating around these days, it made it even harder to find what I was after. The solution? Make my own, just like I did with the hard square brush I posted a while ago!

NOTE: These will NOT work in Photoshop CS2 or lower

You can buy the set at the link below, and if you’re willing to share them via the twitter or facebook buttons, you’ll get a 33% discount! (share it first, and then click the pay button and the discount will be applied)

Purchase Sketchyfun Pencil Set #1

How to load the brushes:

1. Extract sketchyfun pencils CS5.abr or sketchyfun pencils CS6.abr from the ZIP file you just downloaded. Extract it to your desktop or a folder you can get to easily.

1. Create or open a a new image

2. Select the brush tool then right click anywhere on the document window.

3. Click on the small arrow or cog button (depending on your version of PS) in the top right corner of the brush panel that appears, then choose Load brushes. (You can also choose Replace Brushes if you wish to replace your palette of brushes with the ones you're about to select)

4. Browse for the Photoshop brush file that you just extracted (CS5 or CS6 depending on your photoshop version) then click OK

Hope you enjoy using them!

Interesting! Do you work only in Photoshop or do you start with real graphite, too?

I rarely draw on paper these days, pretty much everything I do is done on computer now. When I use photoshop it's usually for painting, I don't do a lot of sketching in it as I have other programs for that, but I figured these brushes would be useful for people who do like drawing in Photoshop :)
