Net Picks - Online Resources

Today's net picks are a few sites I've found great resources and tools that I use in my work. 1- Kyle Webster's Brush packs for Photoshop - If you have a Wacom tablet and paint digitally, I would highly recommend you try out one of Kyle Webster's brush packs.  He's even generous to offer a couple free packs. I admit that I used to always try to find free resources online to use in my work. I understand not everyone can afford to spend money on digital tools, especially if making art is a hobby. I tried out a couple of Kyle's free packs and was sold. I ended up buying a few packs (which are very affordable!).  I have to admit my favorite go to brushes are in his free Pastel Palooza but I love the variety he offers in his Ultimate Megapack.

The piece below uses brushes from his Pastel Palooza pack, Runny inkers (another favorite) and Ultimate Megapack.

2- DesignCuts - I love DesignCuts because they offer great bundles of digital products at crazy insane prices!  I have to admit last year I went a little nuts for their font bundles. So far I've purchased four font bundles and two design resources bundles.  Their bundles usually cost between $29-$39 but considering one font could cost that much it's a super great deal. Their design bundles also have a wonderful variety of resources including Photoshop actions, vector elements, fonts, textures, and photography.  I check back on a regular basis to see what's currently being offered. These bundles are available for a  limited time only so it's important to check often.

3- Creative Market - Creative Market is a great resource for all types of digital resources. I must admit, this is where I get a lot of great resources for free! Every week they offer a few free resources. I've browsed around and the Creative Market has quality products. I looked into their submissions page and they ask to see samples of work before they allow a person to sell on their site which I think is a great way to establish quality control.
