Hey guys, need some help with a work project that I'm doing right now with Adobe Photoshop. I need to create brush strokes that look exactly like the ones in the pictures that I will link below. I can describe it as a stroke that goes from small to big and looks like a raindrop. I have downloaded a bunch of custom brushes from the adobe website but none of them seem to give me the look that I'm looking for. If anyone can point me in the right direction or link me to a set of brush presets that can help me achieve this look it will really save my ass at work! Please and thanks in advance!
You can achieve a similar look with a round, hard brush and turning on Shape Dynamics in the Brush palette. Then set it to Pen Pressure (with a pressure-sensitive tablet) or Fade (without). Although looking at your samples, I'd probably do it with custom vector shapes to better control the shape and varying thickness.
It is easier to destroy than to create.
More fun, too.
