Hey guys!! So far you’ve seeing me play around with smoke soooooo much and you already know how much I love it! Therefore, I thought it was about time to get back to shooting smoke and getting, not only the pics, but also some amazing brushes to use in Photoshop when needed for compositions. Can you believe it?
That’s why I have a big surprise and a big give away for you guys! I want to share with you five of my favourite smoke brushes for free! You just have to be subscribed to the newsletter, or subscribe if you’re not!
And you might be thinking… ‘why the hell do I want this?’ (apart from the fact it’s free!) ‘What can I do with it!?’ You can, PLAY!! Let’s give you some examples then, some small creations and inspiration to get the creative juices flowing! Remember you have a small tutorial on how I have created the following image, so you can also check that out here, and get some free stock smoke images too, that I gave you in a previous give away!
Ok, lets go and learn how to add the brushes once you download them, because it is SUPEREASY. You just have to go to your brushes, open the adjustments menu and click on the add brushes button. Then look for the folder where you have downloaded them (or stored) them and click on the .abr file and open it.
Once you’ve done this, they will be added to the brushes panel option. Then you just have to click on one of them and it will select it as a new brush, if you want to use it, just put it on the place you want it to be, and click! As if it was a stamp! You can change the size, the color, the opacity and the flow of the brush, which is also pretty awesome!
Another one of my first creations when playing around with photoshop and smoke, was recreating the flag of my region of Spain. It is quite simple and also beautiful, and I thought it matched the spirit of my motherland. It is pretty cool to know you can do small little simple things that are awesome and mean a lot to you and other people.
Ok, that’s everything for today, I hope you enjoy the brushes as much as possible, and that it’ll bring you joy and tons of happy editing and compositing hours. Please share the results with me here, on my Facebook page, or by using the hashtag #NuckyBrushes on Instagram!!
