In Photoshop, one of the most creative tools is the brush tool. As you create in photoshop you will find the brush tool being used in all sorts of creative scenarios such as drawing, painting, erasing, refining, creating textures and masks.

In this tutorial, I will be introducing you to the brush tool, demonstrating how it works and giving you some tips on what to look out for when using it.

Enjoy.
