Vector Freebies: Paint Brushes Set 2

Today, I am releasing yet another set of high quality Illustrator Paint brushes. There aren’t many brushes included in this set but what this set lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. Set 2 contains 7 high quality Illustrator paint brushes in varying widths. What I like about this set is how fat some of the brush strokes are. A lot of brushes I’ve seen are a little too scrawny to be used in large point sizes. The larger you make the stroke, the more the stroke distorts. Since these are a little fatter than normal you’ll be able to make them a little fatter than you can with some other brushes. Don’t get too crazy with them and use a 30 pt stroke. These brushes aren’t that big. You will, however have a little more room to work with.

Free Textures: Sand & Beach Outtakes

When I take my camera out to grab some shots of textures I usually come home with literally hundreds of images. The really amazing ones, I release in the Colorburned Shop. The good ones get released as freebies and the others get held over just in case. The other day I was looking through some of my old sand images and I realized that some of them, while not technically textures, were good enough to be released as freebies on my site. When I go through my images I try to distinguish between what’s a texture and what’s a photo. In my mind a texture is any kind of image that you can skin a 3D model with. A photo is just about everything else.

Included in this set are 21 high resolution textures of the sand and ocean from a trip I recently took to the beach.


Vector Freebies: Paint Brushes Set 4

I was working on a project not too long ago where I needed to replicate the look of a signature for a logo that I was working on. I spent a lot of time going through my collection of Illustrator brushes trying to find one that I liked but none of the brushes I had really excited me. So instead of using a brush I was only mildly satisfied with I decided to make my own. I ended up creating quite a few sets of brushes and I was pleased with how they all turned out; so pleased in fact that I decided to release them all to my readers for free.

Free Textures: Bark

I’ve been meaning to add some more free textures to the site for quite some time. Lately, I’ve been a little busy with other projects and just haven’t had much time to put a set of textures together. Today, I am releasing 8 high resolution images of bark.
