26 custom Photoshop brushes that I made to support my digital painting workflow, which involves applying and blending a variety of flat, angular textures and patterns. Includes a bonus two-hour video demo (no audio) and layered PSD of me painting the cover image photostudy using these brushes.
MM Block Hard — I use this for blocking in shapes with just a bit of texture. Also useful to quickly push paint around as a Smudge tool (at 100% strength.)
MM Marker III (Azimuth) — a messy chunky marker. A go-to brush for blocking in shapes. Turns into a line if you paint lightly!
MM Smudger — my default brush for soft blending with the Smudge tool.
MM Rocky Block — I use this to paint shapes that I want to have some texture and rough edges.
MM Rocky II — applies an abstract, rectangular texture. One of my favorites, I love using this to create rocky visual interest. (Great for the Smudge tool too!)
MM Rocky II (Follow) — a version of Rocky II that follows the brush direction. Great for painting sides of rock formations where there’s a clear directional flow to the shapes.
MM Rocky II Round— a variant of Rocky II that puts down rounded shapes. (Useful for ground.)
MM Mounds — Mounds of dirt, hills, distant plateaus, etc. Pen-pressure determines how flat or tall the shapes are (harder = taller).
MM Cracks (Follow)— For shadow cracks in the hills, highlight ridges, and more.
MM Messy Rake (Azimuth) — A rocky rake brush, good for indicating more regular rock strata, or messy repeating line textures.
MM Scatter — apply chaotic shapes, or rough-up edges with the Smudge tool.
MM Tris — an abstract, triangular scatter brush. Great for energetic polygonal notes.
MM Speckle — great utility brush for a variety of speckle effects / highlights.
MM Thick Grass (Follow) — great for clumps of thick wild grass.
MM Tall Grass (Follow) — Tall Timothy grass blowing in the wind.
MM Foliage — A texture that can quickly indicate leaves and vegetation. Also useful to build up rough/rocky surface textures.
MM Scatter Leaves — Triangular leaves in a scatter pattern.
MM Shrub (Radial) — spin this around in a tight counter-clockwise circle to paint bushes.
MM Pines II — Scatter triangular pine-tree shapes. Pressure determines height (Harder = taller).
MM Tree Tops — For when you need to paint just the tops of bushes, or distant deciduous trees (for example light hitting the tops.) Pressure determines roundness (Harder = rounder.)
MM Circle Scatter — Scatter circles, good for distant bushes or deciduous trees.
MM Spikey (Radial) — this can be used in a tight circle for spiky shapes (like Yucca), or painted straight across for stark, triangular grass. Also creates interesting results as a smudge tool!
MM Flowers (Follow) — stylized triangle flowers. Sprinkle these on top of grass in a bright color for flower accents.
MM Chain Y Plant (Follow) — for dead plants and vine-y, crawler-y things.
MM Chain Leaves (Follow) — symmetric geometric leaves and stem that will follow your stroke.
MM Chain Leaves II (Follow) — same as above, but rounder & more compact leaves.
Minor fix for potential issues in the MM Mounds brush.
