This is a remake of my other abstract lighting brushset so that it is photoshop 7 compatible (as opposed to only CS2). These brushes can be used in photoshop 7 and any later versions, CS and CS2. Like last time, there is no real replacement for just time put into airbrushing, but these brushes can make some cool effects and speed up the process a lot. Included are 14 brushes for focal points, dust and spot effects, and just wavey light things. I used many of these brushes on my Elora deviation [link]
if you want a better example of their use.
These look good on just a normal brush mode with light colors, but a good trick for brushing over things is to, on a new layer, brush in a medium-dark grey color, and then set the blending mode of the layer to color dodge. You may then want to duplicate the layer a few times to get the desired brightness. Sometimes this can be a very effective way to create lighting.
If you download and find these brushes to be good/useful, a
would be very much appreciated. First, it lets me know that these were useful to someone, but more importantly, it can help spread them to others who may want/need them.
