Organic Brush Set (Special) and Greyscale/Monochrome StyleSheet
Been experimenting with creating a set of raster brushes based upon the variation of a single pattern ..just to see what can be achieved.
New grey-scale Style Sheet and 30 experimental Raster Brushes added to resources: 
1. Monochrome Styles
2. Raster Brushes

Appreciation for the huge amount of work that went into creating the brushes and patterns. I am sure many will find good use for them.

One observation perhaps; if in the vector stage (assuming vectors were drawn to create the brushes) the objects are grouped and a circular transparency gradient is applied for brushes that have the same length and width or a elliptical gradient transparency is applied to a long stroke, the brushes can be used to 'paint' almost as when using pixel brushes. Sometimes applying a Gaussian blur to the brush strokes, these can be used to fill in an area or shape, which is useful when creating pores and facial creases in portraits for instance. I may post examples of this technique in the near future.

Thanks!..much appreciated..it is a lot of work but fun...:)!

Totally agree with you blend to edge effect (Gaussian blur) for brush strokes. I read with interest your posting in resources recently. But for me it depended on what exactly is the purpose of the brushes. Most of the brush elements are vector including the seamless patterns. This has evolved over time as when I first started the library most of the brushes created were 'raster based'. To get the blended edge I 'erased'/ smoothed back with another texture brush set some some opacity value...This is still true for the 'Grunge Brush/splatter sets'

I have used a similar technique for 'vector' based brushes by grouping and applying transparency to grouped objects (Horizontally an vertically). You can see this with the Brush set for 'Poison' and those for 'Ammonite'. For the  Inkbrush set/s as the tools were built for inking (black and white) [raster and vector] I simplified the brush dynamics to exclude accumulation and flow jitter and applied high %age of hardness.(reduced blur)..For this set of pattern brushes and Camouflage I brushes it is not the case.

Currently experimenting with the greyscale equivalents for the 'coloured' style patterns/base textures which have been produced in conjunction with this...to amplify the organic texture...sort of getting better results by importing coloured versions with higher contrast/colour divergence

Look forward to you posting your techniques...always something to learn!:)
