More Brushing Effects for Photoshop Enthusiasts

By: Maricon Williams

Brushes creating smoke, fog and cloud effects add up elegance to an image. This is why Photoshop has added series of brushes to choose from. Some brushes are designed to create a wide range of vaporous textures, from enormously soft cotton ball styles to elements with well defined features. Photoshop has a library of 25 dynamic brushes by David Nagel which are designed to help you customize your own vapor effects with just a few strokes. 17 of these brushes are cloud brushes, which use large nibs for producing sky-scapes. The rest are vapor trail brushes which use smaller nibs and tighter scattering to produce thin jet or rocket trails, smoke columns or anything else you can turn up with.

In the collection, each of the brushes uses a unique brush nib, which you can customize to create variations.

Each brush has also its own set of dynamics. You can select it right away and start your stokes. These brushes will work best in combination with a pressure-sensitive tablet. This series of brushes is a more customizable way to fabricate not only cloud effects and other vaporous matter like jet trails and smoke plumes.

The effects you can get may differ extensively depending on the base color you use for your brushes. You can also use overlays, color dodges for more stark effects for sunsetsArticle Submission, light flashes or softer modes to produce fog and haze.

The brushes mentioned will run on Macintosh and Windows systems and are compatible with Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and up. You can manipulate these brushes as you see fit.
