I want to make a small contribution with a small painting I finally made with your amazing brushes. Thanks again!

The Magicpicker Photoshop panel finds daily use in my workflow. This panel provides a visually intuitive tool for selecting color in Photoshop. I find it particularly suited for "painting from scratch" painting. Magicpicker is available for Photoshop CS5/CS4/CS3/MAC/PC.

John's Artists' Brushes for Photoshop CS5 Now Available!

I'm pleased to announce that my Artists' Brushes for Adobe Photoshop CS5 are now available. Above is a short preview video of the tutorials included with the purchase of the brushes. Utilizing Photoshop CS5's new Mixer Brush and Bristle Tips, my goal with regard to the brushes was to create a set of expressive tools that can be immediately used without the need to tackle all of the available settings. The Artists' Brushes come with 48+ brushes, a set of 6 custom-built canvas textures, John's Cloning Layer Action, and over an hour of instructional tutorials.

John's Artists' Brushes are available at an introductory price of $19.95. For more information and purchase details, visit the Artists' Brushes webpage.

This is a close-up sample of painting with my new Artists' Brushes for Adobe® Photoshop® CS5. As can be seen in the sample, my goal is to have these brushes provide a high degree of natural-media realism. The selection of six custom canvas textures that ship with the Artists' Brushes supply an authentic paint character to the applied strokes.

The Artist's Brushes for Adobe Photoshop CS5 are $24.95 and will go on sale within the next 2 weeks. As an introductory offer, they will be available for $19.95. This special offer will be limited to a 30-day period starting the day the brushes go on sale.
