Photoshop Tutorial: Digital Brushes for Flat Illustration

Illustrator and designer Willian Santiago teaches us how to use Photoshop brushes to simulate manual painting techniques, such as chalk, watercolor, pencil, and many others

Tools like Photoshop allow a wide variety of digital illustration processes, helping to simulate effects and textures that mimic traditional techniques. To do this, we use brushes that offer different ways to customize our strokes and painting effects in our designs.

Illustrator and designer Willian Santiago (@williansantiagodg) teaches us how to use his favorite brushes, which simulate techniques such as chalk, watercolor, pencil, and a variety of other textures. Discover his tips in the video below:
