Silky Scale Brushes by Imaliea Silky Scale Brushes by Imaliea
These are the scales brushes I used in the painting

I drew them first by hand and then played with the brush settings until it worked for me ^^

Just a few notes:

I put them on a new layer ontop of whatever I want to look scaly, and set the layer to 'Overlay'. Then I apply a layer style of "bevel and emboss" and fiddle around with the settlings until it looks good for my purpose. In the pic above, I set it to 'pillow emboss' with the shadow and highlights set to Overlay as well, and had a very high depth but low bevel size. Complex I know, but it's all just a matter of playing around and having fun.

Also, the scales change direction according to your brush stroke. Have a play before you start something to see how they work ^^;

Enjoy! And please I'd love it if you would show me what you do with these if you use them :) --- PLEASE NOTE: I probably won't be able to comment back to you anymore, I just haven't the time, but I still do drop by and check out the things you've done :) :) thanks everybody!

PS. These were created with Photoshop CS3. I don't know how well they work with Photoshop versions lower than CS.

FYI sadly the brush doesn't work with Photoshop 7.0 No, I disagree!  :( (Sad)  & I had got sooo excited about using them. Great work though, I wonder if I can use the same process you used in my version of Photoshop to create scale texture? :-? (Confused)

I am sorry to hear that! I would be nice if Adobe had enabled it so people could use brushes with any version... but who knows, yeah maybe you can use the same process to make your own :)
