AlanTheRobot's Brushes (ALL Versions - Tested) by AlanTheRobot AlanTheRobot's Brushes (ALL Versions - Tested) by AlanTheRobot
I made a video to go with these here where I explain what I use each for, how I made them, etc, so I'm not going to explain that all over. Here's the video:

Brush Presets Panel and My Brushes - Photoshop for Digital Painters

As I explained in the video I made all of these myself or they're variations of Photoshop's basic brushes. The soft brushes are in white because I use those to erase. If the brushes have a light blue box around them that means those are different strokes made by the same brush. The rest is pretty self explanatory.

* These brushes only work and are only included for CS6 users. If you have CS5 and below or Elements install the corresponding brush pack which I have fixed and tested in CS2 with other people confirming they work with other CS versions AND Elements (all the way down to 5.0 is confirmed). I used abrMate, for anyone else who was as mystified by compatibility issues as I was.

I licensed them under CC, non-commercial, share-alike. CC licenses always require crediting/attribution, but I’m adding an exception:

You don’t need to credit me if you’re using them in a painting, whether you sell it or not (the non-commercial refers to repackaging them and selling them). You only need to credit me if you share the brushes, you modify the brushes and create your own pack, or you include them in a pack of your own. I’m talking about the complex brushes I made, the ones where the image tips was mine, you obviously don’t have to credit me for modifying the basic brushes or any made from stuff included with photoshop. I think it’s obvious which are which.

Updates:

- Will be re-uploading or uploading another without a set size to the brushes which is what I now prefer. Also I have made the watercolor brushes faster. If you want to do it real quickly yourself. Just fiddle with the size and spacing of the dual brush. You'll get rougher edges but almost 2-4 times the speed depending on how far you go.


And now I think I deserve some shameless self-promotion for this...

This was done mostly with basic brushes actually, just to show you, they're not that important. The music notes were a temporary brush and I textured the background, but otherwise all pretty basic:

Sherlock at the Window by AlanTheRobot

1st Below, Sherlock: I used the Real Media Wet to Dry and quite a few others as I wanted a rougher feel. If you saw the video you can see me use quite a variety especially for the floor. 2nd, Kidneys: Round brush for the face with a touch of the wet paintbrush. Some textures for the coat, toothpaste for the hair (not very satisfied with it though on this one). 3rd, Dr.Horrible: Wet to Dry for the face, toothpaste for the hair (seems to work better for hair like this), and all sorts to give some live to the background.

I have a question about the soft erodable pencil. It's a really cool concept, but how do I "sharpen" or reset the pencil to its pointed initial state after it's entirely eroded? Is there a quick way to do it, or do I have to reselect the brush from your brush list to resharpen the pencil?

If you go to Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > Tools, at the very end of the list you can set a letter shortcut for that and a few other tool related actions. Unfortunately you can only set one letter shortcuts since it's listed under tools.

Another thing you can do is if you find there's a tip shape you like you can set that as a custom tip, up the hardness, then save that brush as a new one.

Thanks, but I used my own categories and they're included in the file, not as images, but as text.
Good idea though, might adopt it if I have time as in stroke view the categories are next to invisible.

When I download this, it's a .zip file, which doesn't work on Elements...how do I make it so it does? Amazing set, btw c:

DA doesn't let us submit .ABR's (brush files). You have to unzip it. I think Windows (and most OS's) have a built in one. You right click the file and you should see "Extract All...". If you can't find it you might try googling for a visual guide. Otherwise get a program like ZipGenius or WinRar (they're free and tiny). They're nice to have anyways because you'll find a lot of files that are zipped as .rar and Windows can't handle those.

After you've unzipped it, there will be two files. Pick the one that says for CS5 and below. It should work with Elements. I've had a few people confirm it with several versions.

Thanks for all of these! I use Elements and the CS6 only brushes don't work. Shame <:L

AlanTheRobot Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013
But at least the CS5 and below brushes work in Elements, yes? Nobody had confirmed this for me yet. What version are you using, just so I know?

CS6 brushes only work in CS6 because they work completely differently than regular brushes and use a special brush engine only available in CS6 (and to a smaller extent in CS5).

Yep, all the CS5 and below brushes work, I think. I'm using PSE 9.

They're modified versions of the ones that comes with PS CS6, you might want to to have a look at those too just to have a larger set to choose from :)

I don't know if anyone has brought this up to you but I have CS 5.1 and neither file works so I guess for those mid-versions they don't download. I could just be doing something wrong without realizing it though if no one has mentioned anything like it.

I've fixed it. I've tested the brush pack in CS2 so they should work in CS5.

AlanTheRobot Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013
No, they have brought it up. If you read my description, you'll read I've been having problems making them CS5 and below compatible. I'm still working on it. I don't have a solution as of now. I thought packaging the brushes without CS6 specific brushes would work but it didn't.

Could I get this for Photoshop Elements 8.0?
Reply
:iconalantherobot:
AlanTheRobot Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
I've never used Elements but a quick Google search told me that CS brushes do load in Elements. But since I included CS6 only brushes in the pack, other versions were having problems so I have just fixed the brush package to include two files. One for CS6 users and another for users of versions other than CS6, so the second should work for you... do keep in mind any brushes marked * are not included as those are CS6 only and they were the ones causing problems for CS4-5 users.

If they work please tell me in case anybody else happens to ask :)

Thanks for informing me of this new update however when I go to load it an error message occurs saying that it will not load because its not formated to PSE 8.0 That's alright and thank you for informing me your brushes and video were extremely helpful. It is a shame I cannot use them but I tried, even with the preset manager it would not load after extracting it from the WinRar file. Thank you either way for such great brushes.
