Photoshop Brush Basics by TehAngelsCry Photoshop Brush Basics by TehAngelsCry
A tutorial which was created from a suggestion on #Divine-Tutorials. It shows beginners how to use the brush tool, and the different options available.

I hope it's easy to understand, and if there's anything which you feel should be added, or something which doesn't quite make sense, do let me know.

After just downloading CS5 Extended, I've noticed that the symbols are different from CS3 Extended. If beginners are using CS5, just look for the brush tool ( the B shortcut still works ).

Comments and criticisms greatly appreciated :+fav: if you find this useful!

Very useful tutorial.
The explanations are very clear and easy to understand for everybody, which is nice since not all tutorials are meant for people without any knowledge about the topic.

The lay out is also very good and well arranged...The graphics are used in a very helpful way and illustrates the theory making the concepts easier to understand.

I think you did a great work with this tutorial and I thank you for it, since it helped me to understand some things I always wanted to know about but never found a good theoretical resource.

It is very nice when experts take their time to help other people, specially for free...thank you again :wave:

This is fantastic, I'm glad that you have considered this. Photoshop is very daunting in the beginning, I think that's why so many people turn to Paint Tool SAI because it was easier to learn. I'm also glad that people have suggested this for a DD because it will be useful to so many. :)

Thank you for the offer, but I'm fine. I have been using Photoshop for nearly seven years now, but I still remember how hard it was when I first started. There was plenty of help with more complicated things, assuming you knew the basics. But there were no tutorials on the basics when I started out, so to see one for others is fantastic.

Ahh! You're as ancient as me then :P I was lucky when I first started, my now fiance knew how to use it, and he taught me XD He took control of my PC to show me things (since I'm in the UK, and he was in NL) XD

meh, i found out that we have photoshop elements, and i dun wanna pirate cus i don't need it when i have photoshop elements. anyway, i tried it and i kinda hated it XDDDD the only cool thing was brushes and well <-< i guess they're ok, but textures made from scratch looks far better than the photoshop made ones. and SAI has some features that phothoshop don't have (and i really need those featuress XD)

rabray63 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You know people use photoshop and probably never think for a minute about the possibilities of the tool their using me included.. When I watched your tut, the Brush tool which I just used never thinking for a minute of the various options you can change. I now think of the brush and the adjustments I can do now rather than just pick a brush and use it (Thanks to you :)) if you know what I mean lol ;)

Thanks again,

Regards :0)
