There was a time when I only ever used the soft round brush in Photoshop to paint on a layer mask to define where I wanted a particular effect to appear.
But since I’ve been exploring digital art, I’ve discovered so many more ways to use brushes.
Not only can you put a paint stroke on your image, but you can use different colours, you can paint inside the stroke with multiple colours, or even clip a texture to the paint stroke for some really cool effects.
In this video, I demonstrate a bunch of different ways you can use Photoshop brushes with your images for interesting artistic effects using my Different Strokes Photoshop Stamp Brushes. And, if you don’t have Photoshop, you can use .png files, I’ll show you that too.
