ZliDe's EASY DETAIL BRUSHES (v1.3) by ZliDe ZliDe's EASY DETAIL BRUSHES (v1.3) by ZliDe
You can use them for free! No need to credit me.

Current Version: 1.3

From top to bottom:
Fur - Best to use with a brighter tone on dark surface to set highlights
Armor Pattern - Best to use with a dark tone on long armor parts (like on legs) to give some easy depth
Bubbles (UPDATED 04.06.2015) - Use with white for some randomized basic bubbles
Lace Up - Use with black for corsage lacing etc
Braided - For a quick braid preview (Overpaint recommended)
Chainmail (UPDATED 21.07.14) - For decent chainmail styled lighting
Braids - Best to use with a brighter tone on dark surface to draw full braids
Scales - To add some scale texture
Skin Pattern - For some exotic skin pattern (on reptiles etc)
Rope - Best to use with a darker tone on bright surface to draw full ropes
Necklace - Plain necklace (Overpaint recommended)
Rain - Use with white to create some simple raineffect

Feedback highly appreciated! Questions too ;)

:bulletblack: Most brushes need a darker or brighter surface to use so i recommend to draw them on an extra layer and add the surface afterwards
:bulletblack: Of course they are heavily stylized and wont work for most realistic drawings. I find them most useful for a quick preview to overpaint or to add a small textured shimmer!

(I will update this file if i rework some of the brushes - so if you like the brushes, check for the latest version from time to time)

Apparently i'm having a lot of issues when it comes to the direction of the pattern when i draw using the brush... when she draws it on her examples the curved strokes allows the braids and pens to flow with the direction of where she is drawing... (i really hope this makes sense) i uploaded this on Photoshop Cs6, the brush isn't doing this effect... neither is any of my Brushes that are suppost to be doing this effect... i would LOVE if ANYONE... can tell me how to fix this issue!!! PLEASE AND THANK YOU!!!

Check out the brush settings - it should have the "Shape dynamics" checked. In there, there should be an option called "Angle Jitter" with a Dropdown that should say stomething like (Control:)Direction (dunno the proper english translation).
Thats the Option that enables the brush to move accourding to the direction you paint. If that's not the problem, you may want to upload some pics of your brush settings or maybe some footage tho i dont really know what else could be causing it :\

So if I'm understanding correctly, all you need to do is just dab the brush on an above layer to add the detailing?
I'm sorry, I've always been a little confused when it came to brushes like this ^^;

ZliDe Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Yes! I always draw on an extra layer with them so i can easily add something beneath them or use the layeroptions.
Let's for example take the braids i also used in the preview image: Here's a quick step by step on how i use that brush

Oh I see! In the last panel, did you just use a normal brush to fill it in?

And one last question lol Does this also apply with the fur brush?:)

ZliDe Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2015  Student Digital Artist
The last panel is just some detail work, i added some small light areas with a very small brush, darkened the edges a bit with a soft round brush and added a shadow, also with a soft round brush.

Most of those brushes work that way - and so does the fur brush. I'd recommend to use it only on small areas since it's heavy stylized and looks really repetative on bigger areas :)
