New Gouache Brush Tutorial by DrewGreen New Gouache Brush Tutorial by DrewGreen
Okay, lemme see if this works.

I get a lot of people asking me about the textured brush that I use, so much so that I donít actually have time to point people in the direction of my old tutorial that only kinda describes how to make it. For my job right now, a fellow artist on the team said they needed the brush for some tasks so I made a tutorial.

And I figured I might as well make it available for others to use so youíll all STOP ASKING ME! (Iím kiddingÖsorta)

Iím hoping you can view the tutorial at 100% by at least opening it in a new tab or something, because it wonít work otherwise. Youíll need to make the brush and pattern from the tutorial and to do that, they need to be the right size so everything turns out correctly.

Let me know if you have any questions. Iím way behind, still using Photoshop CS, so some things have almost certainly moved around since then. I canít help you in those situations since I simply donít know what later versions look like, but Iíll do my best.

And remember, it doesnít hurt to play with the settings and see what other cool things you can get from this brush. :)

Good luck!

~Drew

You need to create the brush yourself, the picture shows you how to and the settings used

Yep, got that. I was confused on the images in the picture, how we copied and pasted them. Figured it out and made the brush, thanks!

If I remember correctly, I just downloaded and opened this file in photoshop, traced around the brush and made a new brush with it. Then I did the same with the pattern, tracing around it with the marquee tool in PS, and then made that a new pattern.

So now you have a new brush and a new pattern, and then you just combine the two with the settings he lists in PS to create your gouache brush! I really hope that helps, Im awful at explaining things!

Where can I find more of these brush and pattern icons? I'd rather use the brush preset and marquee tool than install the files. :) Thanks for this tutorial by the way! Extremely helpful!

Thank you so much! I never knew what the texture panel could do, you've just blown my mind. As I've been trying to teach myself digital painting I've felt like someone lost at sea, and it's like you just taught me how to read a compass

In the tutorial, I tell you to select the pattern (with the rectangular marquee tool" and go to "Edit > Define Pattern." That's how you make it into a pattern if you don't already have it. :)

sadly I don't have Photoshop CS, I use Photoshop Elements cause I suck (lol) and I can't find the brush settings window, am I looking in the wrong place or does it not exist in PS Elements = I can't create this brush? ;O;
