MCP Collaboration – Free Brushes for Photoshop

I had a brainstorm today…  Guests have become a fun part of my blog, mainly because everyone has something valuable to give.  So I thought I would start a new concept here at MCP: MCP Collaborations.  These will be a FUN way to have all MCP readers help each other.

I hope all of you will participate! Here is how it will work. I will name a topic.  And I have a bunch of great ones planned.  And we will brainstorm a list together.  Then I will create a post from that brainstorm – in an easy to find place so you do not need to dig through all the comments. If you have any idea what you would like to collaborate on, send me an email directly or through my site.

This week’s collaboration is: FREE Photoshop Brushes


I have a list of links started to share with you but I want to make this list bigger and then share it in a post with everyone.

To make this the very best it can be, please comment below with a link to your favorite free brush sites .  I will compile a list and post it on the blog next week.  The more people that participate, the better this resource will be.  If you read this from Facebook or Twitter, please come to the blog to comment or your resource may be missed accidentally.

Please post like this example:

(site name) Brusheezy: (link) (write a description of what types of brushes they have) huge assortment of brushes

Look forward to this.  I have many more collaborations planned if this 1st one is a success.

    Jodi. Love the tutorials and information shared on your blog. When you do your post on brushes, can you include the why’s and what’s? For instance, what do these other brushes have to offer that the brushes in PS do not? And how would you use them, what do they accomplish or create? Can you post a before and after or a tutorial to showcase?

    Hi Jodi-
    Brushes have become my obession lately. I love adding clouds to a bland sky. I mostly use brushes for unique art pieces that can be printed on canvas. I added two little before and after pictures on my blog to give people an idea of what you can do with brushes and textures…Enjoy

    I’d love it too if you (and maybe your readers) would give us some samples of how you’ve used photoshop brushes with photography.

    You know I have never understood what brushes do….could you share your words of wisdom in what they do? I just use the soft airbrush and the hard edged brushes.

    Sorry Jodi, I thought that was the right link. Try this one instead
    I think when you become a free member you can get access to other links – this appears to be the blog history with links enabled. Please let me know if it doesn’t work if you’re not a member – sorry for the confusion 🙂

    Obsidian Dawn has a lot of great free brushes (with limited use) she also has lots of images, shapes, patterns, and vectors.

    This place is free – with some purchased stuff on the side. You have to sign up (for free) for their newsletter to have access but it is WELL worth it – I love there stuff and I use it often.
    They have tons of great brushes – have fun browsing!

      Meggan – is there a specific link to brushes? All links I put in my final post will be links directly to free brushes. I will do other topics other times so these need to be specific – not general sites with free stuff.

      Thank you for helping out!!!

    This is a great idea Jodi!!! One of the sites that I frequently go to is My Photoshop Brushes ~ This site has a large selection of brushes, shapes, patterns, styles and gradients. Check it out! 🙂
