The Custom Brush Guide by Marta Dahlig

1x1.trans The Custom Brush Guide by Marta Dahlig The Custom Brush Guide is a Digital Painting tutorials series written by Marta Dahlig for ImagineFX Magazine.

This guide is divided in 4 Workshops:

- Skin & Hair [link]

- Fabric & Costume [link]

- Nature & Enviroment [link]

- Elements [link]

As you may see, this guide helps you to set up your own brushes (or Marta’s source brushes) in Painter or Photoshop to develop your artwork. Each article is dedicated to a different part of the artworks, so that the author can concentrate on all the aspects of that particolar subject. If you click on the links above, you will see that you can download also the source files of the articles, in this case Marta’s Brushes.

As a beginner in Digital Painting, I found these articles really useful, even because when I started working to this kind of art, I had not idea of how to set my brushes to do that particolar thing. Of course, there are many ways to paint fabric or eyelashes, but this guide can be a really good starting point for beginners, and a source of inspiration for intermediate Painters.

    Thank you so much for having this up. Not only did it give me new brushes to play with, but it showed me how to make brushes and why to make them certain ways. I’ve been looking for insight into brush making all over the internet, and all I’ve ever found was HOW to make them, not WHY. Thanks again!
