Snowdrop Alphabet Brush Set Freebie

Oct 26, 2008

I’ve been thinking about how to create the ultimate font for all things decorative.

I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for: a bold font with a combination of flowers and grunge. I painted the fonts individually to ensure that each letter is a composition within itself.

This brush set is named after the white flowers called “snowdrops” that once grew in my garden. I’m giving this high res brush set away absolutely FREE!

Painting using the Waxy Pencil Brush

Here’s a painting that I really like. I made it using a pencil-like brush to make a big scribble, and then colored flowers and leaves on the layer below.

Waxy Pencil Brush Set

Oct 24, 2008

Photoshop does have chalky brushes, but I wanted an effect that would be so realistic that it would be similar to the pen and ink illustrations in childrens’ books. I worked all night on this set of “pencil” brushes, making 15 variations, all of which are pressure-sensitive. This means that when I draw on my Wacom tablet, I am finally getting what I have wanted for a long time: a waxy quality that can vary in thickness, with the addition of a textured background effect.

Sugary (Illustration Friday)

Oct 6, 2008

This week’s subject for Illustration Friday is “Sugary”. My illustration has led me to sculpt with sugar: I designed these clowns for the end-of-year party at my husband’s nursery school. The party had a circus theme, and each of the 40 kids received a sugar clown. These three seem to be happiest and the sweetest, so I’ve chosen them to represent this week’s Sugary theme.

Sugar decoration can be a plain art of the kitchen, or a springboard to a creative and yummy art!
