Random Brushes Tip:

Oftentimes, you won’t want a brushes shape to be exactly how the brush was made to be. For example, these wings brushes were made to be used from “straight on” – but most times, that won’t be how you want to use them! So, in order to help them fit your model, you should follow these tips.

  1. Open up the file with the image where you want to use the brushes.
  2. On the left side, click on the brush tool. Up on top, just under the main menu, it will show you the shape of the brush that you have selected. Click on the arrow to the right of that.
  3. Slide the “Master Diameter” slider to the right or left so that the brush is the size that you want it to be
  4. Hit F7 to make sure that your layers palette is showing. If something disappears, hit F7 again. If it appears, great.
  5. Down at the bottom of that, you’ll see some little buttons. The one just to the left of the trash can is the “Create a New Layer” button. Click that.
  6. NOW click on the canvas with the brush you selected (making sure the color is what you want!).
  7. Over in that Layers Palette on the right, the new “Layer 1″ layer should still be highlighted. By putting this brush on its own layer, you can now manipulate the brush and not the rest of the painting/image.
    Edit > Transform > Distort
  8. In that little box that shows up, click on the various corners of the image to distort the brush shape so that it’s how you want it.

You can use this method to change the angles of things, the basic shape, as well as the perspective!

Say that you wanted to use one of our Arcane Circles brushes, and have it look like its lying on the floor. You would follow the same steps above, and when it comes time to drag the corners to distort the image, you would move the top two corners toward each other and down a bit. The bottom two corners, you would widen. This should make the circle look like it’s sitting on a floor! Fine tune it by moving the corners as you see fit, to make it fit your specific floor angle.

    I’m trying to install the fairy wing brushes on Adobe Photoshop 7 – but it keeps saying it’s not compatible? Help? :(

    • Stephanie says:

      And you’re following the instructions in my installation tutorial?

      If that’s not working, try downloading and putting the file on your desktop. Once it’s unzipped (it needs to be the ABR file that you’re trying to load, not the ZIP file), choose “Load Brushes” from within Photoshop, navigate to the file on your desktop, and click OK. That’s a last ditch way to open the file, but if that doesn’t work for you, then there was either a problem with the download or your extraction program did something odd to the file when it extracted it.

      Check out my tutorials on installing brushes and extracting files. They’ll help explain what you should be using. Sometimes those fancy extraction programs can do strange things to the file – you just want to use the one that came with your OS (and your browser may have automatically done it when it downloaded the file).

      Hope this helps!

    I am trying to download and when I open the zip file, it only has two files in the zip… SS-fairy-wings and the instructions. Would you please tell me how to get the multiple styles of wings (multiple sets)? :) Thank you so much for these beautiful wings and your hard work! Have a wonderful night!

    Hi, i absolutely love these brushes but I think I’ve changed the settings as when I go to add them to a layer nothing appears in the actual picture but I can see that the top layer has been deleted to show the background in the layers palette. Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this please?

    • Stephanie says:

      It sounds like perhaps you’re using them as an eraser rather than a brush? If it’s erasing the current layer and allowing the one beneath to show through, that would be my first inclination. Try making sure your brush tool is selected by hitting “B” and making sure that’s the one you’re using! Good luck!
