:bulletred: THIS BRUSH PACK FILE SHOULD NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE BE COMBINED WITH OTHER BRUSH PACKS FOR REDISTRIBUTION ONLINE ( sorry for the big warning, apparently people like going around and stealing brushes from artists who made them and making their own packs out of other peoples work. If you see this happening please report immediately. Original artists should get credit for their work. ) This brush pack is intended for Educational purposes only.

Personal Comments
Figured I would share some of my custom grass brushes. You can never have enough grass brushes I think XD. I used a few in this image if you want to see how they look. => [link]

Free to use for what ever you want. All I ask is that you link back here if you do use them. For 2 reasons I ask this... so that others can find and download them and so I can see how you used them. I find it so interesting what people come up with. ^_^ Also please fav if you use, that way more people can find them. I'm all about sharing the love!

As seen on Charfade's Channel! Live broadcast on livestream that will show you how to effectively use these brushes. [link]

:+favlove: Creations from other artists who used these brushes.
| Post a link in the comment box and I'll add you here! * note there is a two image minimum, and must be an image posted from your DA gallery, not external site links! Thanks! |

Great brushes, I used the brushes for Gimp (with JustSilvia 's help) and used them to do the background on my first 'real' drawing. Thanks a lot!  :worshipKat: 

Here's the picture:…

Thanks a lot for sharing, I'm learning to do backgrounds and I'm sure it will be helpful; I have used it here to try it out:… :)
charfade Featured By Owner 13 hours ago
NP, glad you enjoyed them! 

Honestly if you want to learn how to do backgrounds, I suggest really studying some environment paintings and photographs. Do a few studies practicing with the colors and then do something from memory. :)
Wyverra Featured By Owner 11 hours ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's actually a good idea, I don't know how I didn't think of it ^^;
Thanks a lot for the suggestion I will keep it in mind when I will have some time to practice. It's kind of hard to be a self-thought artist, I want to be good at drawing, but I just try to learn different things randomly and I make some progress, but it's very slow and unsteady. So it's always good to hear advice from more experienced artists :)

I definitely recommend trying to join some kind of online study group.  There are several out there on the web.

^ just to name a few

Do challenges, study, practice, etc and most of those places you will met some really cool people to study along with and will help you improve. Sometimes you'll get one on one livestream lessons for crits or paint overs of your work to help you learn the most common mistakes. 

I do speed paint studies weekly here speedpaintstudies.deviantart.c… we always welcome new members! The most common thing I get is "well I'm not good enough to participate." Don't think that way, everyone starts out someplace, doesn't matter if you are 10 or 100 , everyone understands and want to be as helpful as they can. Artists don't have to study and paint alone anymore. Join a group, it will be the best thing you have ever done. :)
