Fun with Photoshop Brushes Tutorial

Lately, I've been creating some Photoshop brushes using sketches made by hand. I just wanted to take a minute to step you through the process:

1. Sketch your ideas.
2. Scan them and do a live trace in Illustrator
3. Once your settings are where you like them, save them out as an EPS file
4. Open the EPS file in Photoshop
5. Delete the white portions with the magic wand tool (if you want it to be transparent and outline
form only)
6. Select each portion of the image that you want to be an individual brush
7. Go to edit, define brush preset, and name your new brush (it's that easy)
8. Decorate your pictures or artwork with your handmade Photoshop brushes!!!!
