Diversity of Species - Brushes by scumbugg Diversity of Species - Brushes by scumbugg
I recently needed some animal silhouettes for a screen printing project. When I searched for some photoshop brushes to do the job, I couldn't find anything that fit exactly what I wanted. Everything I could find was good, but seemed to lack the detail I was looking for. So, anyway, I wound up just scanning a bunch of old animal reference pictures I had and made my own brush set.

There's a whopping 56 brushes in this pack, and it was made to work with Photoshop CS2. The brush file is in abr format, but Ive included the original jpgs as well, for use with other applications. The animals you get are:

angler fish
ant
bactrian camel
bat
beaver
bison
bottle nose dolphin
cassowary
catfish
chameleon
crocodile
elephant
elk
emperor penguin
emperor scorpion
fox
frog
giraffe
gorilla
great white shark
grizzly bear
hammerhead shark
Hercules beetle
heron
hippopotamus
honeybee
hummingbird
jaguar
kangaroo
king cobra
Kodiak bear
lion
manatee
manta ray
monkey
moth
mountain goat
mouse
octopus
pelican
pileated woodpecker
rabbit
raccoon
rhinoceros
sea turtle
seahorse
snail
sperm whale
squirrel
swift
swordfish
tortoise
toucan
walrus
warthog
zebra

Have fun with these! Personal use is totally fine with me, but please let me see what you come up with! Thanks!

EDIT: Here's the finished screen printing project I was talking about. Diversity of Species - Shirt

Hi there, thank you for creating this brush set! I've used them in this piece here, which I've created in hopes of supporting relief efforts in Japan. If I figure out how to go about doing this, what are your feelings on this image being printed? All proceeds would be donated to aid in Japan.

Hey man awesome brushes, I also do shirt designs commercially and was wondering if I could use your sweet brushes for a design. I'll be putting the design up here on deviant art for everyone to see and I'll let you know when it was up. But I was wondering if I could use these commercially?

This is perfect. I'm going to use some of them for a my kids birthday invitations. The party is going to be at a zoo.

Also, thanks for thinking of those of us without CS or higher. I have PS7 and love when people include the jpg file.

Thanks!

Question: I used your brush to make a sortof "logo" for my work (you can see it on my main page), and I was just wondering if you mind me using it as an actual logo. Like, places other than dA, and possibly on things that I would sell.
Because, frankly, not enough people do foxes. They're difficult to find. So my only other option would be to do what you did and make my own.
Let me know.

scumbugg Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2008
yeah, its fine with me if you use it. to be honest, i really did put minimal effort into those brushes. all i did was scan each animal in from my encyclopedia of animals, use the trace/cut tool and fill it in with black. i dont really feel like i can take much credit for these, i just wanted them to be available for myself and others use.

And thanks for having a foxie. I love foxies. (And like I said, they're not that popular, for some reason)

Do you by chance have the .psd file for this so that PS7.0 users could benefit from this amazing brush set? It's exactly what I've been looking for, but it's not compatable with ps7. :(

Amazing work though. ^^

im not sure how to save it as a psd... would a zip of all the different animals as jpgs work?

scumbugg Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008
I've added the zip file with the original jpgs, so if you re-download it it should work out. Let me know if you have any trouble with it. Id like to see what you make with it!

Also, if you end up turning these into a psd brush file, I'd like a copy so I can upload it and other people can use it as well. I'd give you credit of course. Thanks!
