For this quick video, let's take a look at how to create your own Custom Texture Brush in Adobe Photoshop.
How to Create Custom Texture Brushes in Photoshop
We'll start out with this quick scan of a charcoal rubbing.
Next go to Edit > Define Brush Preset, we'll just call this Charcoal Brush.
Click OK, grab the Brush Tool, and in our Brush Presets, the new brush appears all the way at the bottom of the preset library.
To adjust the settings, open up the Brush Panel, increase the Spacing, engage the Shape Dynamics, add a significant amount of Angle Jitter, then the Flip X and Y Jitter. Create additional adjustments for more customization.
