Title】 Water Brush in Photoshop

So a lot of people, including myself, freakin' love the Water Brush in Paint Tool SAI.

There might be many reasons why you would want a similar brush in photoshop, I for one wanted it because it's easier and Paint Tool SAI still doesn't like my computer. :XD:

I know what you're thinking, SMUDGE TOOL!?

Yes. The forbidden Smudge Tool.

There are creative ways to use this tool and it's in there for a reason. I always avoided the tool for blending but I find that with this custom brush and the Smudge Tool, not only is it easier for me to see the difference between two tones when blending, it also makes it easier for me to judge a nice blending job when doing it the other way of layering and colour picking. (The most common way of painting in Photoshop. :)) Therefore I personally find it is helping me learn to blend in Photoshop via the aforementioned technique.

I would recommend not to use this all the time if you want to master blending in photoshop. It's an excellent skill to have but at the same time, the more ways you find you can do something, the more ways you can create different pieces of work.

Either way, I hope this is of use to you all. Happy Drawing~!

Note: It should be able to work on any version of Photoshop.



:star: I recommend you create this custom brush using the brush tool then save that as a new custom brush and then set your Smudge Tool to that brush preset.:star:



:heart::heart::heart::heart:OMG Thank you so much for the DD! It's my first one ever! :la: Thank you~! :heart::heart::heart::heart:

I was told about *nebezial's Blender Brush by =General-EbonRose after I had made this tutorial. So if anyone is wondering if maybe I got the idea from *nebezial then the answer is no. I only learned about it after I hade discovered this technique and made this tutorial. :peace:

There are differences between the brushes and their settings that make their results—albeit similar—noticeably different.

According to ~calisto-lynn, with her settings uploaded here, that in versions later than CS3, it will not work. If it does, it won't work as well as it should. You can see her exact response to a question regarding it working in CS6 here).

I know there's many similar tutorials and brushes out there but I still hope you find this useful. Perhaps my settings won't work whilst Nebezial's settings do and vice versa. It's not set in stone. :)

Happy Drawing!

Here's a FAQ
