Something I did for last month’s Magnet Magazine. It can be a little tricky to illustrate a somber subject like this, especially when it was coming from the writer’s own personal experience. I decided keeping the figure essentially nondescript was a good way to approach the problem.
I joined the masses with a freebie item pack for everyone to enjoy. I’m creating a lot of assets for wireframing projects that I decided to piece together a few for free. This pack holds 20 items …
I will be releasing the larger premium pack pretty soon and it will work with CS6+.
Win a free set of Photoshop Watercolor Brushes from Kylebrush.com ! Since the launch on Thursday, over 300 artists have already picked up these one-of-a-kind watercolor brushes.

Get my REAL PENCIL Photoshop CS5 and CS6 brushes at a special price! Reblog for a chance at a free set too!
How these brushes are different Most pencil brushes use opacity and flow to determine the strength of their mark making and density. Texture is often an afterthought and feels tacked on. My real pencil brushes have locked opacity. They use a painstainkingly tweaked combinations of texture and flow settings to create the most realistic marks possible through a range of real pencil hardnesses.
Press hard and more tooth fills in for a more opaque stroke. Press light and the stroke shows more paper. Use a harder pencil lead and it will be, well, harder to fill in the paper’s virtual tooth. Use a softer lead and the tooth fills in more readily.
I use these brushes for almost all of my Photoshop sketching and have included new “real” style red and blue layout pencil variants as well as my more artificial, digital pencil brushes as a bonus. All of this for less than the cost of a real pack of sketching pencils!
I can’t wait to see what you make with them!
