I finally made enough to warrant packaging and sharing them. Most of the brushes were created to help me and my fellow colorists with making the backgrounds for the mlpmmo. These brushes were made with Photoshop CS3 Extended and should work with all newer versions of Photoshop. Might work with older versions, but I'm not sure.
This is package "1.0"... meaning that as I make and collect more brushes, I will update the "My Little Brushy" package. This first pack has some flowers, clouds, leaves, trees, ground details, and other random things.
Feel free to use them for whatever you like, except anything you plan on selling --the brush art is not mine or yours to sell. Private commissions are an exception. You don't need to credit me every time you use them, but if someone asks you about them, please point them in my direction. <3 And I would love to see any creations these are used in. :3
ALSO: If there is something that you want a brush of, let me know and I'll try and remember to include it in the next package.

it may be a nooby question which all ask... but acctually i am simply looking for a brush to draw a pony... and maybe its in the simple photoshop and i don't find, but is in this pack also this simple brush? I am sorry if this is stupid or if you don't know what i mean >.>
Yeah i test almost all of my brushes, they are standart ones. Argh i don't know how to describe... the lines dont have the same look in a pony, its getting sometimes smaller in a curve or just at the end of a line... i am german, maybe i could describe it better if my english would be better xD But thanks for your reply anyway, you do great work
Ah, I think you are talking about line variation...? A line that tapers at the end or changes in a curve?
That has to do with pressure sensitivity.
Like a real brush, the beginning and ending of the stroke will be thinner than the middle. The computer simulates this with the pressure sensors in your hardware/software.
In photoshop, you can change how the pressure sensitivity affects the brush in the brush panel. To see what I'm saying: [link] --note the "Pen pressure" setting under the "Control" option for "Minimum Diameter". The smaller the diameter, the more of a taper you'll have to your brush strokes. The larger the diameter? Thicker line (with less variation).
Or you can simulate pressure sensitivity with the pen tool when you trace/plot vector lines. The show is animated with vector images... ...but you can use any method to draw ponies (do whatever feels most comfortable for you).
I hope I guessed your question correctly... if not, I hope you learned something anyways? Either way, don't feel bad about your English, and don't hesitate to try and rephrase your question.
