Photoshop Gouache Tutorial by DrewGreen Photoshop Gouache Tutorial by DrewGreen
Hey folks!

EDIT: I have updated this tutorial here: [link] So go there to see the settings that I actually use for this brush.

DOWNLOAD BEFORE USING THIS!!! You'll want to be able to grab the brush and texture at their native size!!!

Here's a simple tutorial on how to get my signature gouache brush in Photoshop. As always, feel free to play around with the settings to get something better/more comfortable for you and your style.

Now you guys can stop begging me for this. XD

Take care and lemme know if you have questions!

Adobe Photoshop CS.

Thanks so much. Since I can't download Kyule Webster's brushes due to only having CS4, this is a great alternative

i usually lower the opacity so i can get a kind of painted effect :] but for the rest exactly like you make it here!

That's awesome!  I've only recently been playing with opacity and flow with brushes, too.  It's weird that it took me so long to really experiment with them.  (I'm guilty of staying in my comfort zone for way too long, trying to fix that.)

yeah, i change brushes about once every year, hahah. opacity/flow are the only settings i mess with. so i know the feeling!

Smart.  I should make it a point to change things up every now and then.  It'd only do me good!

Sadly, I've heard of many similar complaints from Photoshop Elements users, so I'm not sure the brush can be achieved in that program. I don't have Elements myself, so I am afraid I can't help you. I'm sorry! :(

Ah, that's quite a shame... Looks like I'll have to start investing in getting myself some PS CS6! :dummy: Till then, I'll be stuck using my PS Elements. Oh well. *shrugs*

Can you please make this brush downloadable? No matter what I do, I cannot for the life of me, get this to work.

Are you using Photoshop or Elements?

:icontoothpastegringo:
ToothpasteGringo Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2012
Photoshop CS4. I believe it's because Photoshop has never recognized my tablet, no matter how many times I update my drivers and restart. It looks just like yours does in the brush presets up until I have to apply pen pressure.

I have Photoshop Elements 6.
I made the brush and I have the sand texture, but I don't understand the bottom and how I get the brush to work. :c
I need help with the presets part, I can't find that icon or anything.
I'm stupid.

:icondrewgreen:
DrewGreen Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2011
You're not stupid. I've gotten similar comments about issues with Photoshop Elements and making this brush and part of me assumes it's not completely possible, but I'm not sure. The truth is, I don't know Elements well because I've only barely used it years ago. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. :( I only recommend that you poke around google and around the program itself to see what you can find. Good luck!

Hey, great tutorial...
Do you know how I can do a brush like this in GIMP?
Thanks...

Heyheyhey, fellow GIMPie here. Just want to point out that GIMP 2.6+ is in fact compatible with Photoshop brushes! We just need a download of the brush itself, rather than putting it together from a tutorial like this.

As I just said, GIMP can use PS brushes. Could we mebbe have the brush itself, already put together? Would be greatly appreciated!
