the loish brushset by loish the loish brushset by loish
I never uploaded my brushes before, because they are actually mostly standard photoshop brushes or some free brushes that I got from fellow artists here on Deviantart. However, people still keep asking what I use, so I went ahead and made this! As you can see, there is not a huge difference between the four busts above. I tend to use my brushes in the same way, so the only real difference I get is some effects from the texture and shape of the brush. Still, I hope you find them useful! 

for more information, PLEASE read my FAQ at… !!

hard round brush
warning: do not use this brush if you are stressed and have a habit of clenching your pen too tightly! in order to get strong lines you have to press down hard. using this brush during a time when i was already clenching too much contributed enormously to my injury!

I downloaded this brush set today and it makes me want to use Photoshop more often. Especially the gouache brush. =)

Amg I have Photoshop CS5. Yes
kelseylaliberty Featured By Owner May 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can't find any of these :( I have photoshop cs6, does this make a difference ? I really want to use these (for the record, I recently started digitally drawing, so I don't know too much about photoshop or anything).
loish Featured By Owner May 26, 2015
hm, i have photoshop cs5, it seems unlikely that it wouldn't work on cs6. have you tried restarting photoshop after loading the brushes? sometimes there is a bit of a delay before they show up in your brushes.

Fergato Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2015  Student General Artist
Oh my god, I just found you. You are amazing, I love your style.
larnacy Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is amazing! :clap: How long did it take you to learn draw so good, shadow, color and be so good at it? :D
loish Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015
i've been drawing digitally since i was 14 or so.. and been working on this style of art since around the age of 15 i guess? i'm 29 now :)
larnacy Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow... That's a lot of years! Guess I still have a long way ahead me then :D
Although do you think that the type of tablet someone uses plays a big role on while drawing it or it's only based on skill?
loish Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015
i think skill accounts for 99% of the end result! tablet type can help make things easier or make the process faster which is also quite important in the long run, although it doesn't fundamentally change your skills/abilities. i learned how to draw digitally with an optical mouse and later a tiny tablet originally intended just for putting signatures on digital documents :) but i have a cintiq how and that is very important for speeding up my process and allowing me to work more intuitively.

mitsuki-riu Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
do you use an stabilizer? 
loish Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
not sure what that is! so i'm guessing no!
parameciumkid Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I envy you your ability to draw the same thing over and over so consistently. I can never manage to do that.
loish Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
thanks! although with these, i just sort of painted over some of the details in the same image 4 times using a diff brush :)
DeviantDanny2000 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Thank you for this. However, I do have one question. For the soft brush, do you really use 1-5% flow? I've tried that and it seems to take a while to finish blending something...I use a wacom tablet, and I have Transfer and Shape Dynamics selected in the photoshop brush tool settings. that my issue? Or, is it supposed to take a long time to blend? 
loish Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015
i usually use 2% flow. i really just use it to smooth out towards the very end of the process, the effect is meant to be very subtle!
DeviantDanny2000 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hmm...Sounds good. Thank you for your help :)
