One thing to remember is that when you are creating your own custom brushes in Photoshop is that you want to make the original shape as large as possible. The reason is that you want to make sure that the brush isn’t fuzzy or pixelated. You can always resize a brush to make it smaller, but if you start small, you can’t resize it to make it large without losing quality.

What Photoshop Brushes Did You Create?

Since you can create a custom Photoshop brush from anything, the possibilities are endless. If you take that into account, and combine it with the fact that you can add any texture to your brushes via the Brushes Panel, the sky really is the limit. You can even mask your brush with another brush, altering its look even more. You can also decide how it applies color and whether it rotates, how dense the brush is, and its spacing.
