John Silva Smudge Pack 2.0 (Painterly Edition) by JohnSilva John Silva Smudge Pack 2.0 (Painterly Edition) by JohnSilva
PHOTOSHOP ONLY (sorry brah's). 

Edit: I've done a live demo on how I use this smudge set and how the smudge tool behaves, the video will be put up in a couple of days on my new YouTube channel here: , keep your eyes peeled!

By popular demand, you guys wanted more, so here's more 27 smudge brushes.
I created these brushes from scratch (Apart from 3 of them, sorry for not saying who, I just don't remember) due to the fact that I want to take my work have a more painterly feel..
Most of you know that I use smudge tool 90% of the time in my paintings, so this only made sense.

If you share these around, please make sure to put my DA link along with it, these took a lot of time to make and refine.

(I will make a youtube video on how I personally use them in my professional work, I'll edit this section out with a link to it when I'm done.)

Have fun!

Quick Tip's on how to use it:
- Put the smudge tool strength on 100%
- Apart from the top 3 brushes, for the most part if you want a nice texture, try to only tap with you tablet pen when using a smudge brush, the random setting will create a better mark of the texture.
- It works best in contrasty areas of your painting

How to load it:
- Right click on a canvas.
- Click on the cog wheel icon (or arrow depending on the PS ver.) .
- Select load brushes.
- Pick John Silva Smudge Pack Painter Edition.abr file.
- ???.
- Painterly profit!

Thank you so much! As someone who learned to work digitally using Painter, the transition to Photoshop has been difficult for me to say the least. These are an absolute lifesaver and I cannot wait to try them out.
