Description: The Cartoonist Brushes Add-on
More than 200 professional brushes & tools for graphic artists, cartoonists, animators & everyone that loves to draw with black inks, water & experimental materials. The cartoonist brushes includes from classic clear lines to the emulation of vintage line styles (Searle, Provensen, Pratt, DePatie, Breccia, etc.), from the dirtiness of the Dry Point technique to the AMAZING & never more realistic “INK WASHING” effect! & more… crosshatching, fountain pens, sumi-e, splatters, texturing, etc.. You’ll find yourself enjoying & making your job more effective with these proven tools. With the purchase of this pack you will receive all future updates to this set for free.


Most of this brushes & presets were created in Photoshop Creative Cloud using a Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet & tested also in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Graphire 4. So, the RECOMMENDED SETUP is Photoshop Creative Cloud (any version) + Wacom Intuos or Cintiq & the MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS (not recommended at all): Photoshop CS5.5 + Wacom Graphire but do not expect -with that setup- to use the brushes in the same way I created them! The Wacom Graphire & Bamboo models has less pressure levels & the absence of some options (Eg.: there’s no TILT option for brushes). Also, you could load the presets in Photoshop CS5 but the response of some brushes will be far from ideal, even using a Wacom Cintiq. Anyway, this is a ‘work in constant progress’ so I’ll be improving this tools & giving the buyers some updates from time to time.

This pack was created with the idea of emulating some styles used primarily in black & white comic strips, using black ink & washes.

The presets (TPL files) are divided into sections, the title of each section is also the Eraser for that brush style. Eg.: If you select ##### INK WASH ##### you are activating the Eraser for that section

UPDATED TO V1.5 – April, 2018

Photoshop CC2018 (version 19.0) introduced an easier brush management & enhanced brush options so… it’s time to provide my tools also as ABR files! Before loading the AD brush sets I recommend to create a folder inside the Brushes Window (Photoshop Window Brushes) & place all my sets as sub-folders inside that ‘main’ folder. Then you could ‘import’ the brush sets & drag & drop brushes & folders as never before. Could we use the new ABR brushes in earlier versions of Photoshop? Yes, at least in CS6, but remember that in those versions there are settings which are not saved with the brushes (Flow, Opacity, Color, etc.) so it’s still recommended to use my Tool Presets instead.

Brush Stroke Smoothing

There is a new feature in PhotoShop CC 2018 that enables Smoothing (or Line stabilization) for the brush strokes & it’s enabled by default with a 10%, for my brush tools I prefer a 0% by default or in some cases I decided to turn it off completely. You could change that Smoothing percentage easily using the new PhotoShop keyboard shortcut: ALT + Numeric Keys (Eg.: ALT + 1 = 10%, ALT + 6 = 60%)

You can also turn off the magenta line that guides the stroke. Go to PS Edit Preferences Cursors & uncheck ‘Show Brush Leash While Smoothing’

Here’s a not so new video with the brushes from version 1.4 in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_1ykicQfFs
