Spellbook Airbrush Texture Brush Set for Photoshop

7 ratings

Add some filth and analog character to your digital airbrush works, with a unique grain shader brush set based on scans of real airbrush, featuring a variety of grain sizes and baked-in textural effects.

I made these Photoshop brushes for my own use as a visdev artist for animation, and have refined them as I've worked with them on real world projects.

Paint used: Golden High Flow Acrylics
Airbrush used: Paasche Talon Gravity Feed Airbrush
Paper used: Strathmore 300 Bristol
Scanner used: Fujitsu fi-6670 Production Scanner

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Adobe Photoshop CC 2022 and above.
Not calibrated for use in Adobe Photoshop CS6 and below.

To mimic the effect of spraying through templates and frisket masks, use the lasso tool to draw a shape as a selection first, then switch to your brush of choice, and begin shading that selection from the edges inward.

If you enjoy using these brushes, please consider leaving a 5 star review!

v2.0 (2023-Oct-10)
- Added brush guide for v2.0

v2.0 (2023-Sept-29)

Release Highlights
- Name changed to Spellbook Airbrush to avoid confusion with a competing product.
- Major expansion! The set is now 30 total brushes across 7 categories (13 new brushes added to the collection -- count does not include Bonus brushes)
- Liners added by request (made from new scans of smaller paint dots -> grain is preserved [vs scaling down a larger brush])
- Subtle and Speckle categories expanded by request
- Brand new category added: Duotone brushes.*
*The Duotone brushes sample the foreground and background color, and mimic the effect of running two colors through a gravity feed airbrush cup at once. I've been painting with these a lot lately and am excited to share them.
- Bonus Experiments now known as Bonus Concept Brushes, adjusted to be more useful to concept artists. That said, they are still experiments!
- 5 total bonus brushes
- Shipped without v2.0 Brush Guide (coming soon)

v1.7 (2023-Sept-28)

Release Highlights:
Minor tweaks to a few brushes.

v1.6 (2023-Sept-27)

Release Highlights:
17 brushes in 6 categories (Subtle, Speckle, Radial, Splatter, Edge Shaders, and Stamps), plus a few Bonus Experiments (BEs were not included in the official brush count).
