A few months back I released four sets of water color Illustrator brushes [ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 ]. Those sets quickly became some of the coolest and most popular freebies on this site. It actually took quite a bit of trial and error to get those sets to look the way I wanted, but in the process I created a few extra sets that I decided not to release at the time. After some thought however, I decided to revisit those brush sets and see if they were worth releasing. As it turns out, they were actually pretty cool because these brushes were created using a different technique than the others; they actually have a few advantages over the other sets. For instance, the other sets work really well on white backgrounds but not as well on darker ones. This set, in contrast, works really well on white backgrounds as well as darker ones.
