Why Should You Uses Brushes to Distress Your Work?

Brushes are easily one of the best ways to give your work great textures.

In fact, when it's done right the effects can be totally mind blowing.

However, there seems to be a huge misconception about how to effectively use brushes. Honestly, when they're not used right they can make your work look REALLY BAD.

The Reason Most Designers Fail with Brushes

I've had a lot of people write me frustrated that they couldn't get the same textures other designers achieved.

But here's the real problem: Most brushes just aren't made well. Go check out your brush library and you'll probably find that most if not all of your brushes have hard edges. That means every time you use it you have to try to cover up that edge. That's not fun!

It's like you're putting blobs of texture on your work : ( No bueno

The Secret of Getting Great Textures with Brushes

What if brushes were easy to use? You could just pick a brush, click it on your canvas and the results were beautiful and seamless?

The secret is using well made brushes. So what makes a great brush? Here's the 3 things you should look for:

  1. Carefully made edges that transition well. This makes it easy to use without doing "clean up"
  2. Variations in sharpness of textures – these give you crisp realistic textures without being over the top
  3. Careful consideration for subtlety - brushes that are too intense are hard to use
