Pixel Brush

emmyc:

Hey guys! A lot of you are asking about my recent textures and how to do them. I’m normally a cardboard-photo-texture-set-to-overlay-on-a-layer-above-your-drawing kinda gal, but lately I’ve been messing around with new grittier stuff.

so here’s my hard pixel airbrush made in photoshop. It’s super fun.

Load the image in photoshop. Select the whole canvas and go to Edit> Define Brush Preset. Select this brush from your brush menu.

Now go to brush settings and use these settings:

I would just upload the brush file itself but I don’t know how to do that. I ain’t a wizard. I don’t know how all the world works! Whatever! Learn how to make brushes yourself!! It’s very useful!

This brush is best used in high resolution (always work in high res!) It looks like soft grit when zoomed out, but when you get up close, you can see all the hard pixels.
