    Great roundup of brushes here. Some of those texture and “Life” brushes are definitely going to find their way onto my PC =)

    Thanks for mentioning our tutorial on installing brushes. Not sure if it’s an exact fit, but I’ve written an article that teaches all about the Brush tool (and other painting tools) as well.
