Kyle T. Webster Summer Brush Set Giveaway and Tutorial
He’s back with more free brushes for Create readers! An educator and award-winning illustrator who has drawn for the New Yorker, the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Nike, IDEO, and many other clients, Kyle T. Webster is perhaps best known as the founder of KyleBrush.com, which offers popular industry-standard Photoshop brushes for digital artists. And for a limited time (through September 1, 2017), Kyle is offering a set of five tools (four brushes and one smudge tool), free, to Create readers. He also provides a demonstration of how to use them, with a focus on some key techniques—such as painting within shapes.
The four brushes can be used in Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Photoshop Sketch, and the smudge tool, or blender, can be used in Photoshop. These five tools are all you need to draw a complete, well-balanced illustration—as Kyle demonstrates in the video near the bottom of this page—but just know that there are hundreds more where these came from.
Here’s what you get in this set:
Dotty Liner: Kyle says this new brush was inspired by advertising illustrations from the 1950s and 1960s. The unpredictable “inking” gives illustrations character and charm.

Ready to get the brushes and the blender? They are in this folder (there are two .tpl files to download: one contains the brushes; the other, the blender). Before downloading the brushes, please read the “Loading Instructions” document and the licensing agreement, also in the folder. If you do not see the blender in your tool menu, make sure you have selected Show All Tool Presets and deselected the Current Tool Only option (check out the document called “Not Seeing Blender” for more help).
