AD Aquarellist Brushes

AD Aquarellist Brushes for Photoshop

These are the fabulous Photoshop Watercolour Brushes I’ve created a bunch of years ago! Improved and expanded through time!
This pack actually includes more than 150 Brushes that realistically emulates Watercolours and Ink Washings without the need of weird and complicated tricks, just paint using the pen pressure and direction combining different brushes to obtain that natural wet effects!

The first impression, besides blowing your mind, could be overwhelming due to the quantity and variety of these high quality brushes (View the PDF Reference Sheet here), so… take your time to practice and find wich ones are your favorites, combine them, experiment, etc.
I’ll be publishing some tutorials, tips and tricks, so stay tuned!

Some examples using ONLY The Aquarellist Brushes:

First update – July, 2015 (version 1.1):

Some major changes with this update: the splatter brushes (38 brushes) have been separated into an individual set that is included inside the ZIP file, also the new 11 ‘extra’ brushes are contained in an individual set and there’s more!… I’ve included two new extra sets of watercolours brushes (the ‘Architect’ set with 19 brushes and the ‘Cul de sac’ set with 9 brushes), the idea behind those small extra packs is to have a few brushes that work pretty well together.
These new sets are the perfect starting point to use The Aquarellist Brushes.
Watch these new extra packs in action:

Most of this brushes & presets were created in Photoshop CC 2014 using a Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet.
Tested also in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Graphire 4 and a Cintiq Companion Hybrid.

RECOMMENDED SETUP: Photoshop Creative Cloud (CC to CC 2015.5) plus a Wacom tablet.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS: Photoshop CS5 + Wacom tablet, but… with this setup do not expect to use the brushes in the exactly same way I created them. Photoshop CS6 is fine for this brushes.

Take note that the Wacom Graphire and Bamboo models has less pressure levels and the absence of some options (Eg.: there’s no TILT option for brushes).

    Hola Alex! Quisiera comprar los pinceles pero Pay Pal no me puede comprar con tarjeta de credito??


    • Dukal says:

      Hola María José. Si tu Paypal es de Argentina no vas a poder utilizarlo ya que Paypal no acepta operaciones entre cuentas de Argentina. Si es Paypal de otro país tendría que dejarte pagar con crédito, hay instrucciones en el sitio de Paypal. Sino, si estás en Argentina, lo mas sencillo es utilizar MercadoPago, que es gratuito y te permite pagar en cualquier Rapipago o PagoFácil (hay instrucciones aquí en la sección FAQs).

    These brushes are absolutely amazing. I’ve spent most of the day just playing with them, and I could happily do the same again tomorrow, but I must get back to work–and lucky me, I’ll be using these brushes every chance I get. Thank you for sharing these with the world! I’ll definitely be buying more of your products.
