31 Sets of Free Photoshop Paint Brushes

Resources December 15, 2014

Paint brushes have evolved from the instrument that we use in traditional painting to the tool that we work with in creating digitally rendered artworks.

The only difference is that in the digital world, we now have control over painted brush strokes more than ever.

Are you looking for the perfect brush set that will kickstart your next painting-inspired digital masterpiece? Here in You The Designer, we compiled sets of free Photoshop paint brushes in various splatters, strokes, swipes, and colors to make the job done easier for you. Did I forgot to mention that these brushes are downloadable for free? Happy creating, and please do share us your work through the comments box below!
