Dave's brushes v1 (PS) by DavesPineapple Dave's brushes v1 (PS) by DavesPineapple
People often asked me what brushes I use, how do I paint, etc, so I thought...why not giving you EXACTLY what you want? So there you go, these are all the brushes I currently use for everything I paint, all made by me, nothing more, nothing less. So yeah, if you wanted to paint exactly like me, now you can do
Always remember tho, that every artist has his personal preferences about brushes, you just have to find the ones you feel more comfortable painting with!
Also these are for Photoshop, not sure if you can use them in SAI.......sorry 'bout that....

About rules and stuff: Use them as much as you want, consider them a gift for you all wonderful people. If you want to credit me too, then go ahead, that would be lovely c:

So here are some infos about the brushes:
I divided them in 3 categories, to better explain how they should be used:

-Painting brushes (These are the 'big' ones, its what I use 90% of the times). Sometimes playing with the 'wet edges' option might make things better, depending on the situation. Default is on.

1. Splashy brush, I use this for merging and texturing at the same time. Also great for clouds!
2. My main painting brush. <3 I LOVE THIS THING SO MUCH OMG ;u;
3. My 2nd most used brush, I use it for texturing too. I love it at mid-low opacity

-Basic brushes These are just super simple circular brushes, not much to say about these (:

4. Circular soft brush. I do NOT use this for shading! I use this mostly for lights and gradients, nothing more!
5. Circular solid brush, nice for general lining or if you need a strong brush stroke without anything fancy

-Misc brushes Some experiments that ended up kinda cool XD

6. 7. 8. These are just fun brushes I made to sketch super basic structure in my sci-fi stuff. You dont really see them in my finished works, because they just give an idea of how things will look like once Im done with detailing.
9. Hexagons. Just hold shift and swipe horizontally and you'll have a nice and clean hexagons trail. Again, I use it for my sci-fi paintings (:

and...thats it! Now go and paint stuff, k?

Rabbit loves you.

Um, how exactly do I get these brushes? I've never done this before...

It's really easy, download the file, double click it and they will automatically get added to your brushes' list in photoshop (:

Oh! That splashy brush looks amazing!!! I am such a hoarder when it comes to photoshop brushes... I have... bazillions...and...gazillions... @_@ And then when I try to paint something, I get so overwhelmed I have no idea what to use.  I think I need a nice, simple, 5-8 brush set like this and not let myself get overwhelmed by the thousands of brushes in my set. xD

Haha glad you like them! And well these are pretty much all I use to paint, I rarely need anything else than these, so hopefully it'll work for you too q:

I just got photoshop CS2 a week or so ago and I'm desperate to learn!
I need a lot more brushes to do what I want though.

This will definitely be helpful for me.

Thank you kindly for sharing, and hopefully I'll be able to use them well. :)
