Step 3

Brushes that I used are here:

Save to your Photoshop, preset, brushes folder (see notes on how to load brushes below). The brushes are from deviantart, credit goes to Wild-wolf.

Loading the brushes (Natalie's interlude)

Click on Paul's links above and download the files to your Hard Drive.
You will end up with two files 'abstract.abr' and 'grunge.abr'.

  • Next click on the paintbrush tool (if there is only a pencil one there, the paintbrush one can be accessed on the pop out menu by holding down the pencil tool).
  • Click on the 'brushes' drop down menu on the top and then on the little arrow for the additional fly out menu on the far right hand side.

  • Select 'load brushes' and source the .abr files on your hard drive where you downloaded them to.
  • You will see a whole lot of new interesting brushes are added to your default brush selection as highlighed in the following image.

Select one of them by clicking on it and continue with the following steps. There is quite a variety there, so experiment until you have the effect that you desire.
