Tapping Into The Power of Custom Brushes | Tuesdays With Lauri

April 30th 2013 10:24 AM

As the title of this article states, in this week’s instalment of Tuesdays With Lauri we are going to be talking about custom brushes! In the video I will guide you through the process of creating a new brush, and will discuss about all the different brush options/settings that we can tweak when creating brushes. And as an added bonus, I’ve included a great free fog/smoke-brush that can be downloaded in the end of this article. Enjoy!

    Really enjoyed the tutorial, as I do all of your videos, but sad that the brush is not compatible with CS5.1
