Creating custom brushes is a simple task – only a couple minutes of work to create a brush that can serve a designer a full career.

The art of the brush is creating an image that works well for it. Looking to photos that would otherwise be considered unusable – the classic photo of your feet, accidental images and out of focus pieces can make excellent brushes.

The process of creating a brush is a little anticlimactic. Students were expecting a step-intensive process with hard work to show for their interesting results. Instead, they got an easy process that is more dependent on selecting and modifying the correct image. The brushes are already being used in their work.
