How to make custom brush in Photoshop. Learn to make Photoshop custom brush for digital Drawing and Painting. This is a basic video tutorial or lesson of how to make easy custom brush in photoshop. You have to have a pressure sensitive drawing tablet such as a Wacom Intous series. Without the pressure sensitive pen you are not going to get the same results. The particular brush I am going to make will mimic a pencil drawing and give a texture of pencil like when you draw. Though can customize it to your own preference. I usually use 60% opacity when I sketch in PS. Then when I paint I usually use 50%, 80% and 100% depending on the purpose and brushes I use.

Brushes making tip 1: Also, make sure you are on the new layer when making your brush because this is important later on. With any of the brushes you have already create a shape. Experimenting with the shapes can lead to great textures, so don’t be hesitant to try something new.
Brushes making tip 2: Try out a lot of different setting in Brush’s window like spacing, angle control, roundness, scattering, textures, shape dynamics, dual brushes, etc.
