Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 40 By Dave Nagel I've had a surprising number of requests for a collection of watercolor-style brushes for Adobe Photoshop. But with the limitations of Photoshop's paint engine, that's a bit of a trick. Unlike programs like Corel Painter and Synthetik Studio Artist, Photoshop doesn't give you the ability to create anything that truly behaves like wet media with spreading, smearing and diffusing effects. Nevertheless, we can get part way there. ...Read More »

Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 38 By Dave Nagel The last several Photoshop brush collections we've offered have all been practical collections--either recreations of natural media tools or brushes with specific purposes, such as those designed to generate hair and skin effects. This time around I wanted to break out of that and serve up some brushes that are a bit more generalized--brushes with heavy textures for generating artwork that doesn't necessarily resemble traditional media. ...Read More »

Download: Studio Artist Paint Patches, Series 15 By Dave Nagel It's been four months since our last collection of paint patches for Synthetik Studio Artist. I thought I'd rectify this before the end of the year with a new set of these patches (also known as brushes) designed to produce highly textured strokes.

Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 35 By Dave Nagel I haven't yet found a filter for Adobe Photoshop that can create decent cloud effects.

As always, these brushes are free to download and use as you see fit. ...Read More »
Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 34 By Dave Nagel It's been more than two months since we published our last collection of brushes for Adobe Photoshop. Far too long.

As always, this latest collection (Nagel Series 34) is free to download and use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. ...Read More »
Download: Studio Artist Texture Patches, Series 1 By Dave Nagel Every download we've offered for Synthetik Studio Artist thusfar has been in the area of paint brushes. But this week, we take a bit of a detour and offer up a new series of tools for Studio Artist: Texture Synth patches. These differ from brushes in that they aren't used for painting, but for creating textures on your images--either as background textures that interact with other tools or as straightforward effects that can be applied over an existing image. ...Read More »
Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 33 By Dave Nagel Applying filters to create sketch effects is all right sometimes. But there are the occasions when you want to do the actual work yourself, rather than relying on the software to do it for you. Unfortunately, there aren't all that many great choices for getting the job done in Adobe Photoshop. So I've decided to put together a new collection for Photoshop designed specifically for simulating the process of sketching with dry media. ...Read More »
Download: Studio Artist Paint Patches, Series 14 By Dave Nagel It's easy enough to get carried away with any number of Studio Artist's 2,000 built-in painting tools, particularly with some of the more wild, splattering, weaving, scattering brushes that allow you to experiment in ways that are beyond "natural" media. Then again, there are times when you're drawing on your computer and want the familiar look and behavior of the media with which you may be more familiar. So I've decided to start a new series of brushes for emulating these types of "real world" tools, kicking things off with a new brush collection featuring dry media emulators. ...Read More »
Download: Custom Brushes for Corel Painter, Series 5 By Dave Nagel We return to Corel Painter IX this month with a collection of 15 all-new brushes. This particular collection comes in response to numerous requests for natural media emulators, in particular tools for creating sketch-like effects.
