Weekly Download: Photoshop Brushes, Series 10

25 bristled and textured brushes By Dave Nagel
I've posted an awful lot of bristle-style brushes for just about every program out there, but never for Adobe Photoshop. The main reason for this is that Photoshop doesn't support stretch-style brushes, so it's difficult to give a bristly look to a brush whose texture is maintained with a heavy application of color. And so I set out to find a way around this. The result is this week's free download, a collection of 25 textured brushes that will hopefully satisfy your craving for natural media emulation.

Now, I should say that I was only partially successful in this endeavor. About half of the brushes in this week's collection actually resemble bristle brushes. The other half fall into the more general category of "textured brushes," which I've kept in the collection because I think they'll be useful for creating some unique, rich backgrounds for your artwork or even serve as the basis for generating your own texture patterns. All of them are designed to follow the direction of your stroke.

Here's a sampling of some of the brushes in the Nagel Series 10 collection. These range from creamy bristles to hard bristles to canvas textures. The can be applied in normal paint mode or in a variety of overlay styles for adding depth or distress to existing images.
