Health And Beauty Photoshop Brushes Set

Advertisement

In our previous releases we focused on icons and WordPress themes; however, there is a variety of further tools that graphic designers need on a regular basis; for instance, Photoshop brushes. You can find dozens of our other releases in our Freebies1 section.

Grunge Photoshop Brushes2

Today we are happy to release Health and Beauty Photoshop Brushes: a free set of 67 Photoshop brushes ranging in resolution from 69 to 2463 pixels. The set is compatible with Adobe Photoshop 7.0, CS, CS2 and CS3 (you can use it in Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, GIMP and Paint.NET, too). The brushes were designed by Silvia Bukovac Gasevic, the creative mind behind graphics-illustrations.com73, especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

Download the Set for Free!

You can use the set for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. However, it’s forbidden to sell them. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.

Motivation Behind the Design

As usual, here are some insights from the designer herself:

“It’s just another Photoshop brushes set, believe it or not. Some might say just that, and truly so. This may be just another Photoshop brushes set, but like anything else in our lives, it all depends on how you approach it and how you use it.

“As you will see, there are different shapes, subjects and topics covered in this set of 67 Photoshop brushes. The theme of this set is health and beauty. All of the brushes were created from scratch, and all of you, I hope, who do vector graphics from scratch will know and appreciate the work behind them. But what can we do? We all know what Smashing Magazine’s standards are and I wouldn’t dare to send Vitaly anything less than this.

My goal was not only to create a brush set that would help designers decorate or “fill in” their health and beauty-related artwork, but to create a collection of inspirational artwork; brushes that might be used as a starting point for times when the muse is not around and one just needs a bit of inspiration. What they are supposed to be is a little push, a starting point for those moments when there’s just a blank screen in front of you and a total lack of ideas. The idea was to enable designers to open the set in Photoshop, pick one of the brushes and start from there.

So, here it is. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you have to do some health and beauty-related design project (but not only that, of course), these will be really helpful. I hope I have achieved at least a little of what I aimed for with this set. It’s here for you to use, as always, with no restrictions at all. You can look for more on my site and I would be more than happy to hear from you. All of the sets are compatible with Photoshop 7.0 up to CS3, Mac and PC alike.

More of my work can be seen on my blog at graphics-illustrations.com73.”

    Hi gang thanks for the help. Yeah, I know about the stetings in the brush creator. For some reason, even if tilt or bearing or whatever is turned on in the Brush Creator, it still doesn’t work. Same for the 6D pen.I’m putting my money on reinstalling the Wacom driver. Hopefully our tech guys will agree. Yes, Art Rage is pretty cool. Especially for $20! :)I just used it on a painting for the first time the other day, and it was really fun. And you’re right, the oil brush behaves a lot like the one in Painter. My only complaint is I like to use flat brushes, and the only shape in Art Rage is a pointed round.Yeah…the poor man’s version of oil paint in PS is the smudge tool. What’s so cool in Painter (and Art Rage) is that you don’t have to change tools to get the effect. It’s all in one. Paint and smudge in the same stroke. In fact, you can set it up so high pen pressure applies color, but low pressure smears. Very cool!
