Photoshop Brushes are an easy way to spice up your designs. Grab them, place them and you’re done. Ever since CS1 Photoshop allows you to use brushes up to 2500px large. This makes them perfect for webdesign as well as projects for print. This latest high resolution brush set includes 15 sticky tape brushes. They’re all between 2261px and 2500px large. For those of you stuck on older Photoshop versions I included the source files used to make the brushes as a texture pack. All textures are 2500px large and come in png format. This way no one has to miss out on this freebie release. + Continue Reading

I love making Hi-Res Photoshop Brushes and giving them away, free for personal and commercial use. In order to reach a bigger audience I have decided to release the Messy Watercolours Brushes in conjunction with Smashing Magazine. With over 100k subscribers it is the perfect blog. The set has been split into two parts. Part 1 is released on Smashing Magazine. There are 12 high resolution brushes between 2156px and 2294px.

Part 2 contains 18 brushes and is available from fudgegraphics. These brushes are between 2136px and 2500px. Please continue reading to get to the download links. + Continue Reading

Seasons: Free Christmas Print

Let me start of with wishing you all a very jolly Christmas. Today is the traditional Christmas present day. Though I don’t have a tree nor wrapping paper I still want to give you a present to celebrate the festive season. Rather than giving away another set of Photoshop brushes or textures I decided to make something more special: a “free” print design. I would have loved to send you all a finished print, but my financial means did not allow this. Instead you have the possibility to download the hi-res pdf (A3, 300dpi) of the print design entitled “Seasons”. Grab it and take it to your local print shop or simply use your home printer. You can choose between a blue or brown version (or both). I hope you like the present and don’t worry, I don’t expect anything in resturn. Happy Holidays!

Free Vectors: Ink Trees

I shall give you a free vector set containing 21 ink tree silhouettes. They were all hand drawn with india ink and a bamboo stick before being scanned in and traced. The biggest advantage of vectors is that they can be scaled to any size without loss of quality. That makes them ideal for large prints, t-shirt designs and any other project which needs high resolution resources. I am really happy with the outcome and I hope you like them aswell. As always with fudgegraphics freebies you may use them in personal and commercial artwork. + Continue Reading

I did it again. This is already the 3rd Watercolour Photoshop Brush Set to be released on fudgegraphics. But if you’re anything like me you can’t get enough of them. This time I restrained myself to only produce actual brush strokes (with the exception of one blop). All 14 brushes are a extremely hi-res, with resolutions ranging from 1597px up to 2500px.

For all those who are using Photoshop versions prior to CS1 I threw in the source files as well. All 14 images are available in png format and measure a stunning 2500px by 2500px. And all this for free. + Continue Reading

Free High Resolution Plain and Grunge Paper Textures

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love free stuff. Well I love it, and I enjoy sharing my free resources with you. Ever since I read BittBox’s tutorial on how to make awesome grungy paper textures I wanted to do it myself. Finally I found the time to play with it. Once I had started there was no holding me back. I was looking through all my old paper stocks to find some more special textures to scan and tweak in Photoshop. In order to achieve an even grungier look some of the paper sheets were “marinated” in tea, folded and dried before scanning them. To be honest these freebies are the ones that took the longest to complete, but it was good, although slighlty dirty, fun to make them. I hope you enjoy them. As always I encourage you to send me your designs as I am really curious as to what you used them for.

There are a total of 10 free high resolution textures divided into 2 sets. Almost all paper textures are a stunning 3000px wide (well 9 out of 10) and you have the chance to see previews (with the exact dimensions) of them all below. + Continue Reading
