TsaoShin Brushes by TsaoShin TsaoShin Brushes by TsaoShin
Here are 4 of my basic brushes for Adobe Photoshop.  These are the brushes that I use in almost every one of my drawings.

The first brush is a smooth inker that I use to draft my drawings and for fine details.  The second brush is a hard ink brush that I use for my lineart drawings. The third brush is a soft scratch brush that I use for color blending and it is the brush you see visible strokes of in my paintings. The fourth brush is a harsh scratch brush that I use when I need more of the "strands" to show like in hair or fur.  It also provides good texture for grass when used in short strokes.

Edit: Looks like the brushes work in versions back to at least Adobe Photoshop CS2!

If you're interested in creating your own Photoshop brushes or to see how I use mine, check out my workshop video (link starts at relevant point in timeline): youtu.be/fvu5mHCwvg8?t=28m56s

Created with Adobe Photoshop.

thanks for sharing your brushes :) 

btw I was checking your  drawings, and noticed your backgrounds look really good! even though they aren't the main obect of most of your paintings.

I'm currently making background studies because it's a skill which I lack a lot in my opinion, I find it very hard, 1st because I prefere drawing characters, and then because of the amount of details needed to do it, I often finish my process earlier than I would like to lol

do you have any tips on drawing backgrounds? like, do you use brushes for details like trees, or flowers? :/

I'm going to be doing some video tutorials soon about how to use the brushes for backgrounds.  I'll make a post about it!

Hey! I wanted to know how to get the brushes like that from default. I currently have the default brushes, and they work fine, but I wanted to try yours out! I'm a big fan btw, and I would be honored if I could use the same brushes as you do.

Thanks for your time,  c:

Heey tsaoshin! I solved my brush problem! The only thing I had to do was to click on transfer.

But I want to ask your permission for something.
I made already 2 drawings with your brushes! One fairy forest cat and one half wolf half wolf skull drawing. (They are on my profile, you can take a look if you want to know what I mean. I would feel honored!!!) But I want to make a tutorial on how to draw the fur but I used your brushes. Is that okay for you? If you agree to this I will feature your brushes in the tutorial! I hope you are okay with it!!!

Xxx

Chelsea!

hello,

A few days ago I downloaded all your brushes at school, for ps cc, and at home I have cs6, but the fading won't work... Can you help me?
Reply
:icontsaoshin:
TsaoShin Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
So if you're using a mouse, the fading (or opacity sensitivity) wont work since it is tied with pen pressure on a tablet.  If you do have a tablet and the opacity pressure option isn't working, make sure you check to see if the tablet pressure sensitivity option isn't too high/low and also make sure that the you have the feature enabled in Ps.

Every so often, I'll get a weird error where my brushes seem to be set on TURBO opacity/thickness.  Whenever that happens I click my left mouse button and the issue will resolve.  Hopefully some of these will help you!

My pen pressure is just as normal, but I don't get the last thing... What do you mean? But thank you for taking your time to respond

No problem! That last part was just an unusual error that I seem to get.  I think it has something to do with my tablet driver failing every so often so I have to click my mouse button in order to get the opacity back.  I'm not sure what's going on for you :/
