To celebrate the coming of a new season I am planning on releasing a couple of new brushes each week. Those brushes often will have a tutorial added to show you how you can use the brushes to create your dreams.
The first 2 sets are seamless lace borders. Highly detailed and taken from real life borders and in horizontal use fully seamless.
The oldest laces are from the Elizabethan period. Fragile bobbin lace made of the finest silk and linen threats. They appeared in England during the reign of Elizabeth I. The splendid robes worn by both men and women were trimmed richly with lace. On first view their fine pointy pattern sort of resembles the medieval towers. In this pack you will find 8 png texture files to use inworld. They come big and smaller. Of course you will get a download box and an instruction on how to install the brushes. In the download file you will find the abr file to import the brushes in Photoshop or Gimp + 4 black and white png files in case you need to make your own brushes (PaintShop Pro).
The second pack contains lace from another well-known English queen; Victoria. This delicate lace is made in the so called needle technique originally invented and produced by Venetian embroiderers. In this pack you will find 5 borders; 5 png files inworld, a downloadbox with the abr files and the black & white originals to make your own brushes.
In both packs you will find a link to a tutorial on how to use these brushes to make seamless borders. I made a full lace skirt and I will show you the technique in a 7 minutes video. For the video I used one of the Victorian laces, but I am sure your fantasy will guide you to make something alike using the Elizabethan lace. Please have a look at the promo video to see what you can expect from the tutorial.
