Q&A: What type of brushes are normally used when drawing anime using photoshop?

Question by Anitta: What type of brushes are normally used when drawing anime using photoshop?
I was despairingly trying to figure out what type of brushes are used with all these fascinating drawings I find on DeviantART and such… I’ve tried downloading tons of brushes, but non seems to be what I’m searching for. I want those soft lines that doesn’t look pixalized or kind of wavy when used. I have adobe photoshop CS5, but it doesn’t matter if you have an older version, I just need the the type of brush. Any link is welcomed and appreciated.

You can use the “basic” brush shape, you don’t need fancy brushes.
The trick is in how hard or soft edged your brush is, and most importantly, setting the spacing down to 1% from the default 25%, which is what makes it look “wavy” when you paint. In your brushes palette, click on Brush Tip Shape at the top, and then adjust the bottom slider that says Spacing all the way to the left. You will now get a MUCH smoother stroke.

ALSO, work at a higher magnification, to make a cleaner mark, and set your image size when you start to 200ppi, rather than the standard 72. This will give you more pixels to work with. You can always resize it when you are done through Image>Image Size and then change the Resolution back to 72 pixels/inch, which is screen resolution for Macs (96 pixels/inch is PC).

Best of success to you!

I’m looking for brushes of the cartoonish expressions anime/manga characters make. Such as, the tear drop shape when they’re embarrassed, the symbol for when they’re angry, the blush lines for the cheeks, etc. I can’t find them anywhere =[

Q&A: What brush to use for anime drawing? (Photoshop)?

Question by guitarooman: What brush to use for anime drawing? (Photoshop)?
Hi, I have a tablet, and Photoshop CS3, however for my last drawing, I used one of photoshop’s default brushes, and the outlines came out to be very inconsistent, thick and overall not very nice. The lines were too flexible and hence were all scribbles. Does anyone know good brush settings, or a download that I can use for outlines? Thanks a lot!

Both of these problems are probably caused by you, not the brush’s. Most tablets are pressure sensitive; therefore, if you press harder at one point, it will become thickier (depending on settings in the brushes panel thingy). As for shakiness, that is almost definitely your causing. You most likely just have a shaky hand; you can fix this by going quicker over the lines or drawing the lineart on a really big image then decreasing to your ideal size. Does your tablet have a removable, thick, clear plastic cover on it? I found that removing mine helped a lot.
Personally, I have my sketch, make it a minimum of 10,000 x 10,000 pixels, and get my brush. I just use a default hard brush with opacity, flow, and size jitter set to pen pressure. Then when I color, I just make it so size jitter is on. For an eraser, I use a default one with 0% hardness.

Wow, that was like a mini tutorial :p
Hope I helped ;D
