Shading Brushes by Okami-Rain Shading Brushes by Okami-Rain
WARNING: I apologize to those of you who do not use a tablet, these brushes are created specifically for tablet use! Sorry!

These are the kinds of brushes I have been absolutely RELYING on lately to shade my anime characters. (I dont use the hair brush in here, I shade my hair with the other brushes as well. Thats just an added bonus! <3)

There are two soft marker shading brushes and two hard marker shading brushes, a line art (pen) brush, and airbrush, and a hair detail brushes for that extra touch (thought I don't use this brush...just tell me if ya like it XD!)

I have been using brushes like these to shade the characters in these images:

They are also fun to sketch with :3

You know me by now! Ya don't have to give credit, but it would be nice if ya did! They're completely free for use, even commercial use! But please, if you use them to gain profit, give credit to me on that work. Anything else I really don't care.
And don't say you made them, if people ASK let them know please?

Try my other brushes!

Any idea why when I install these on my copy of CS5 they just look like basic round brushes? I must be doing something wrong here lol :3

I tried to use these but the fading effect isnt working ? 
SeriDreams Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
it may because your tablet doesn't have pressure sensitivity. My tablet doesn't have it, I may have to buy a new one. Since looking for drivers for my old wacom isn't found.

Photoshop really doesn't give you any good shading brushes...:nuu: Thanks for making these! :D
CelestialSheep Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I honestly don't know how to thank you for these brushes. I've never drawn before, and I decided to start with a tablet (I took the expensive starting route XD). Anyway not to bore you, but I had no idea how to shade. At all. Trying to get those 'seamless' transitions of colors has been a killer. Now I can!

Thank you thank you thank you! If anything, you've helped this newby progress forward.
JeroAid Featured By Owner May 31, 2012  Student Digital Artist
You can actually use these without a tablet OUO
"Simulate pressure" makes it work pretty nicely when using the pen tool~
(I have a trackpad so I always use that setting to make it look like I have
a tablet //weep)
ulquiorra3 Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Idownloaded these, they're really good. :3
But I'm using your water on the beach tutorial, and I was wondering which brush is soft marker 1....they aren't named on my computer.
kawos-hina Featured By Owner May 17, 2012  Student Digital Artist
These are great! I've been needing good shading and lineart brushes! Thank you!!
