Hello everyone,

this is a shorter news than last time. I want to explain to you my new system for supporters and brushsets:

The new supporter's brush set has been uploaded today. The price is exactly 1$ (100 points) whereas it was 80 points for the previous set. The reason is that, from now on, I want to have a steady price of 1$ but including bonus sets each time a new support's set will be released.

Per example: If you purchase the new set (which is the second supporter's set you can find right here… ) you will have the first set (named Dave's Camelhair Brush Set Eliteversion 2012) IN THE SAME package.
At the same time I offer the new brush set ONLY (without the previous supporter's set) for free so you can try them out first:…

From now on, each new supporter's set will have previous supporter's sets included. The Camelhair set will remain content for supporter's only, since it is the first set people paid for. Making it available for free would be wrong. So my thought is that those who already paid for the first set can now receive the second set as a free version (however everyone who still wants me to receive their support will have my highest respect), and those who didn't purchase any set, can give me their support on the new set and receive both at once.

However, to give you, the supporters, a special reward I will include never before released sets into further supporter's sets as well. These never before released sets will remain bonus content only for your help.

In any case, brushes that will be released for free will show up in the future as well. It is the supporters who make it possible, it is YOU who makes it possible.

So what am I doing with the points/ money I receive with your support? I will use it to support other artist's work, so that I can receive resources, references and material to improve my work as well as having enough time (time equals money) to improve my brush creations as well.

Photoshop has, at some point, very limited settings. A pencilbrush of mine will always use a pencil texture and certain settings, however, I spend most of the time at creating the brushforms when I create new sets. Each brushform is done traditionally on paper. With each time I try to create new forms that will have a unique brushstroke, even if it's a black outline. Each form is unique and each new brushset should have brushes made of new created forms.

There are lots of yet unused brushforms on my harddrive, since I hadn't enough time for new creations yet. But it will come and with your support it will be possible to find more time.

With this journal I want to thank the first supporter who received the new set, whoever it might be, if you read it or not - thanks a lot. :)

And now I wish you a great week and maybe you want to try out my new brushes as well. I know, they are again drawingbrushes, but there will be paintingbrushes as well, don't worry. :D

Many greetings,

- Dave

Brollonks has started a donation pool!
25 / 800,000
Support for my Brush-Creation.

If you like my brushes, you can support ANY amount of points to make sure I'll find enough time to upload many brushes for free. Keep in mind that 80 points are 1$, so the number might look incredibly high.

In any case:

The points goal doesn't have to be reached, there will be more brushes showing up no matter how much support I get.

-It only depends on the amount of donations how fast they will show up.

Upcoming Brushes:

- Graphitechalk (with blendingbrushes via smudgetool included) - free (in progress)

- New Chalkbrushes (at the planning stage

I appreciate your support and many thanks to all who supported me by purchasing the "Dave's Camelhair Brush Set Eliteversion 2012" Thanks! I am only able to find much more time for new brush-creations because of YOUR help.

You must be logged in to donate.

Keine Ursache, deine Referenzfotografie ist besonders hilfreich für zukünftige Arbeiten. Sofern ich etwas basierend auf deinen Referenzbildern erstellt habe, sage ich bescheid. :) Grüße aus Brandenburg.
