Following our collection of 2,000+ Patterns for Photoshop, we are bringing you a massive collection of Custom Shapes. Like patterns, shapes are a somewhat overlooked resource for Photoshop.
Patterns are a slightly overlooked resource when working with Photoshop, we have a tendency to look for a texture or background rather than searching .pat files. Repeating, tileable patterns are invaluable resources for all types of Photoshop projects and they take little room on your hard drive!
So today we bring you a huge collection of more than 2000 patterns contained within 75+ files so that you can add to your library and have a wealth of patterns, backgrounds and textures at your fingertips. All of the featured files include a .pat file, and many also include the individual images so they can be used in other design software.
Splatter and grunge made an impact in web design some years ago, and the trend has slowed a little, but is still being used with relative frequency. If you browse through the latest additions to any CSS Gallery website, you won’t have to look for long before seeing a new site design using grunge or splatters to one degree or another!
Whatever your Christmas design may be, you may well be looking for some brushes to either be the main feature of the design or to enhance the main design.
Here we have selected 20 sets of Christmas brushes for Photoshop, all of which are free for personal use.
Nature is always the first place to look for design ideas, and with the growth of ‘organic’ website design, this has never been more true than it is now. With a wealth of colors and surfaces, natural textures can lend themselves to almost any style of design.
So whether you are a web designer or a digital artist, there should be something in this list of 30 free packs of natural textures that will fit perfectly with one of your upcoming projects.
Hi guys, I’ve got a freebie for you!
I’ve made some random doodlings and converted them to vector format, for your viewing and designing pleasures! If you like the look of the preview image below, you should download the files and check ‘em out.
How to use them
Well, you can either download the .ai file or the .psd file, then you can open them up in either Photoshop or Illustrator, then get designing. A lot of these will probably work best blending them into the background.
How to make them
I made these using a permanent marker on paper. To make your own:
- Use a permanent marker, paints, etc on paper
- Scan it in, open the image(s)
- Use the ‘live trace’ feature in Adobe Illustrator
To download .rar files you have to right-click the link and click save target as or save link as.
Thanks for looking.
