My first tutorial :)
How to create your own natural-media brushes for Photoshop, from making the inksplats, brushstrokes, chalk and charcoal textures with messy stuff on paper, bringing them into photoshop and then turning them into a PS brush set.

Big, big thanks to my editor :iconkuschelirmel: for making sense of it along the way :giggle: :#1:

It sure makes things easier when you can download brushes someone else has made, but it's nothing like using your own work start to finish. Making Natural Brushes for PS by =Duffzilla gives many helpful tips on creating your own natural media brushes, and teaches you how to turn them into a brush set in Photoshop.
