Weekly Download: Photoshop Brushes, Series 1430 sky effect brushes
This week for our series of free brushes for Adobe Photoshop, I've moved away from brushes designed to emulate traditional media. Instead, I've decided to continue a series of brushes I started a while ago focusing on sky effects--in other words, brushes designed to reproduce sky elements that might be useful for you in your compositing efforts. Last time around it was clouds and jet trails. This time I've expanded the brushes to include lightning, the moon, aurora borealis and, of course, more clouds.
Our collection this week offers 30 individual brushes, including 10 puffy cloud brushes, designed to scatter and produce random formations; seven lightning brushes, including individual brushes to create forking effects; various lighting brushes to create light rays, light burst and aurora borealis effects; and several moon brushes, which generate images of the moon at various phases. Each of the brushes includes its own set of dynamics. For example, the moon brushes can be oriented according to the initial direction of your stroke; the forking brushes generate "frizzy" random branches; and the cloud brushes include random rotation, sizing and slight variations in color and brightness to retain the integrity of the basic nib.
Here are some examples from this week's collection.
These brushes will run on Macintosh and Windows systems and are compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS. Continue on to the next page for download and installation instructions. (And remember, you can find all of our previous downloads by visiting our Features archive.)
