If you’re anything like me you’ll be collecting high resolution brushes like crazy. That’s why I’ve put together a new set of Photoshop brushes for you. There are a total of 11 brushes in the collection and they are the largest possible: all of them are a stunning 2500 px. There’s no higher resolution possible than that. For once it wasn’t messy to produce the brushes. It was challenging at times though when I tried to scan a pillow triple the size of the machine. I really hope that you like the brush set. Download after the jump.

The amazing work of Daniele De Nigris has already been featured on fudgegraphics. DND was kind enough to give me permission to distribute one of his wallpapers for free. The wallpaper comes in 3 different resolutions which should cover most conventional screens. Make sure to visit his flickr stream which is filled with more gorgeous art.
BittBox has just undergone a complete re-design and it looks great. Since my coding skills are anything but good I am always looking at other blogs and what themes they used/modified. That’s how I discovered WP Themer Kit. All you need to know is CSS to create your own awesome theme. It comes with 6 templates with different widths and number of columns. I just downloaded the WP Themer Kit and it really looks easy to use, even for a noob like me. I will probably re-code fudgegraphics using it. Hopefully that will get rid of some bugs in my current theme.
After the huge success of my Watercolour Brush Sets I decided to throw in a new set of high resolution photoshop brushes. This set contains 26 brushes, every letter of the alphabet, with resolutions of 1850+. As for the procedure, I printed all the letters on single sheets and cut hem out. Then I used black spray paint to transfer it onto white paper. I used the Disco Deck font as stencil.
It’s not July just yet but I’ve still finished the calendar wallpaper for July 2008. This is partly due to the fact that I will be moving on Thursday and don’t know how much time it will take to get settled in. As always the wallpaper comes in 2 versions: with and without the calendar. This way, if you like it, you can still use it after the month has passed. You even have the choice between a bright and dark version.
There are 2 different resolutions available: 1920×1200, which is suitable for 1440×900, and 1600×1200. I hope these will suit your needs. Feel free to drop a comment if you need it in a different aspect ratio and I’ll do my best to provide it to you.
I’ve just updated my flickr account with 21 free textures for you to download. All photos were taken on Saturday in London. It wasn’t planned or anything. As a matter of fact I went to the Tate Modern Museum to take the “Street Art” tour. There are supposed to be about 15 artworks to be seen in the streets surrounding the gallery. Either I’m blind, can’t read a map or most of the artwork have already dissapeared, cause I only discovered like 3 or 4. I was really excited about this “exhibition” but ended up dissapointed. Anyways, it wasn’t all for nothing. Since I got my camera with me I used the time to shoot some grunge textures which I want to share with you. Rather than putting them in a zip file I organized them in a flickr set so that you can download the individual textures you like. Enjoy!
Today I picked up on a neat little trick on how to extract a colour palette from a photograph. Imagine you stumble upon a gorgeous photo (or piece of digital art) which has this special colour scheme. You could use the eyedropper tool to extract each colour individually but there’s a slicker way of doing it. This tutorial teaches you how to convert a photo into a fully functional colour swatch palette using photoshop and illustrator.
This is the second Vector Pattern Set. The patterns are composed of basic geometric shapes and come as an Illustrator swatch file. You need to copy the .ai file to the Presets/Swatches/Patterns location inside the AI folder. Colourise, rotate or scale the patterns as you wish. The possibilities are endless and there ideal as background or overlay to make your designs that bit more interesting.
