Hello guys! How are you?
This "Go for it" Article is about Photoshop Brushes.
Many of us use brushes to enhance our works result. Whether they are drawings, vectors, paintings, manipulations, photographies, etc., the truth is that brushes are many times a life savior and, they help us achieve great effects in an great and easy way.

What are brushes?
Quoting my own Tutorial, "Brushes can be compared to stamps that we use in Photoshop (or in other program like Paint Shop Pro, Illustrator, Corel PhotoPaint, etc.). The main puropse is to add extra effect or details into your digital work".

I've created 2 Tutorials exlaining how to instal & apply Photoshop Brushes and, also how to create your own Photoshop Brushes. If you find them useful, please download them and have fun!

How to Instal + Apply Brushes by Lune-Tutorials Creating Brushes tutorial by Lune-Tutorials

Now here's a small selection of some brushes available to download for free on deviantArt.

Great job!
Leppardra Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2010
Is it possible for someone here at deviantART to create brushes for Photoshop Elements? I have the 8.0 version but there are absolutely no brushes in DA's Stock and Resources for any of the PE versions; I had to go to the Obsidian Dawn website for them. And not everyone has the regular Adobe Photoshop because it's such an expensive program. :nod:

Thank you so much!
I try to do a collection of the greatest articles for beginners (like me) on my site, so I'm featuring this one too, it's so great.
Of course not without the writers picture.

Please tell me if you don't like this!

dana-martinez Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2008
Nice - although I have one little suggestion/request. I actually have a difficult time getting my brain to loosen up and get creative, so photoshop brushes/stamps kind of elude/escape me... I would LOVE a news article or feature with examples of how artists utilize photoshop brushes in interesting ways - that would be most helpful to me in terms of inspiration or kick-starting my stubbornly literal brain...
