Wowww my Photoshop brushes were featured today as a DD in the Stock & Resources category! Thank you so much to ^KasumiCR for suggesting and ^Elandria for featuring them!!!
In the time since I uploaded those brushes, I've been astonished and overwhelmed by the response on both tumblr and DA! I've never shared a resource before so it's been an interesting experience. At first, I expected everyone to behave themselves and credit me properly, but I've since discovered that that... doesn't happen very often. When I first started seeing my brushes used without any credit, it was pretty upsetting!! I've mellowed out a bit since then, but I still find myself squinting at the monitor whenever I see something on tumblr that looks like it might have possibly been made with my brushes. These days I just ask that if you use them regularly, you better have a note about it in your faq or something!
Anyway, I've made some new brushes since then, but nothing as good as these! I'm still using the spongy shading brush to color practically everything I do, and these days I use a smaller, more scattery version of scritchy line for sketching. Sometimes I'll just be sitting there painting and I'll be like "man, I love these brushes SO MUCH" so it's cool that others love them too!
I guess my conclusion is that I'm glad I uploaded that set, it's been fun and exciting, but it's also been weirdly stressful in ways I didn't expect at all, so I don't think I will most likely be doing it again.
Thanks again to everyone who has faved or commented today, and BIG thanks to everyone who has posted proper credit when they make something using them.
