Awesome stuff man. As always.
Its funny how ppl think that everything should be "free". Don't like it, don't buy it. Whats with the whining?...

I'd say the whining comes from the fact that very similar brushes already exist for free, that and the steambot crew have no doubt used brushes by Jaime/m@/Leventep/Tomscholes etc at some point, it just feels strange to charge for it.

That and the disingenuous way of selling anything art related with false comments like "Analog will make you an accomplished speedpainter" - no it wont, practicing everyday and understanding the fundamentals will, not some gimmicky brushset.

Who will buy this brushset? People who can use it well already have the know how to make their own... So in my eyes its only really preying on the naive, but hey... thats ok right?

Therealjackal,

I understand you're wondering why to pay for something you can have for free.
And the answer is, cause you can,t have this without paying. Simply.

Before starting this discussion, I assume you, at least, bought 1 or 2 others sets of brushes we made. If not, I do recommand you to staop this discussion and try them first. No offense, but I dislike to talk about things I don,t know.

About jaime, Tom and others artists, you have to know that we know them well, we are all friends, and sharing together, supporting each other is something crucial for all of us. And this should start right here, right now to be considered at a bigger scale.

I also recommand you to look at all the artworks made for Tron Legacy, Prometheus, Deus Ex or others projects we worked on, and if you don,t see any value or interest in the use of specific/well setup brushes behind, just doN,t buy it. We don,t force anyone :)

What you can have for free will be limited in possibilities. Believe me, others talented artists never give their best tricks for free on internet. And about free stuff, if you know me/us, I gave A LOT for the last 15 years...

Now we step up, up to you to follow us, if not, good luck and I wanna be the one buying your tools, seriously :)

Cheers man!

This isn't about how good or bad your brushes are its about the concept of applying false value to your brushes. You imply that by buying your brushes people will become an accomplished speedpainter and that what is available for free will be limited.

Now, im not conceited or stupid enough to think that by buying your brushes i will be as good as you because theres so much more to art than brushes (practicing being a huge part). You just have to look to amazing mangaka to see how limitless the ink or pencil is, so dont say that people will be limited if its free. Andrew Jones [link] Does so much with a hardround brush. Steve Burg who worked on Prometheus obviously uses shape primitives and the hard round brush with opacity. The tool isnt as important as how you use it.

Yes i realise that physical brushes cost money but thats missing the point. The ink is limitless.

Workflows that have done the rounds recently with excessive use of the shapetool or lasso are great, but people should be aspiring for their own thing and finding what they like, thats how people come up with their "best tricks", you say it yourself. Artists arent going to give their best tricks out for free on the internet, Craig mullins talks about how initially he regreted helping people so much on Sijun because it created immitators that started getting onto his territory and eventually he stopped caring.

If youre happy to make money from sheep that buy into the idea that they can be you by using a toolset then good for you, just look at how many people buy into the iphone hype.

It is amazing, that when a company created by hard working motivated people exists, low lifes like yours just want to spoil the fun, and it's weird to be insulted when you try to do the right thing for the art community.
One word: ENVY.

Create your own company, spend years creating tools, then share them for free if you want, no one stops you.

We never said buying our brushes will make you a better painter, but I can assure you that if you use the brushes, use your brain a little, understand how we developped these brushes, there are MANY chances you will become a better photoshop artist. YES, I truly believe so.
Now the brushes that are online posted by the artists you mention are great, but I defy you to find any, that is not ten years old, or AS GOOD, organized and developped as ours.

Good luck, and don't be jealous, I'd love to see how YOU have made the art community better:
We have 15 years of experience making DVDs, COUNTLESS workshops for FREE, and going to art school for FREE for all theses years and thousands of happy artists to prove it.
How about you?

Are we at the level where we start throwing out words like jealous? Please dont treat me like a plebian because i've decided to criticise you.

See, if you stopped taking it so personally to the point you have to list credentials you'd realise that i watch and have watched every one of you for years, i know what you do and have done since about 04 on conceptart/sijun but thats besides the point.

What im trying to say, which you seem to misunderstand is that the way you are framing these is so false, perhaps ive missread - [link] - but i'd say that implies that buying your brushes makes you better.


Also, let me try to put this more positively so you dont get offended.


I respect what you do a lot and the way you are creating content amongst yourselves is great, infact... thats what you should promote because thats the ideal. Youre constantly coming up with new techniques and you all have defining styles which is what really stands out, so i find it almost contradictory that what you push for here is the opposite, you're marketing will only make lesser versions of you. For example, if you remember way back in the day to when Barontieri released his brushset you dont have to look far to see all the conceptart sketchbooks that applied it poorly.

Granted these might not be your true intentions and you probably do just want to release these for the greater good. Art is so pure in that its learning to see and the result of practice by the individual - Look at mindcandyman/algenpfleger - Theyre not products of brushes or schools as such, what they have is the result of hardwork like every other artist, so i find the idea of trying to profit from naive artists to be rather frustrating.

Perhaps what i really have issue is with the wording.

As for what i'd do, i've no interest in holding anyones hand when people have done it solo, you just have to look at artschools in the UK to see how the milk crazy amounts of money from students without really benefitting them. The sooner people realise that the responsability to improve is theirs alone the better.

But please dont take it the wrong way and get defensive to the point of name calling, its unbecoming.

Glad to read that you are modifying the angle of your message, so we can now talk properly and in an adult way.

When I did my gnomon DVD, it took me six months of hard work, on the side of work, and many redos. No one ever complained about the price of the DVD, are you saying that gnomon sells to naive artists too? Now that we have grown up, the SB guys have decided to become entrepreneurs too, something I advise ALL ARTISTS to do by the way. It was a life changing experience for all of us, on the ego and team side too.
Now that we fly with our own wings, and not necessarily only work for the "man", it takes more organisation, and a balanced system that allows us to live from our well deserved hard work.
Thanks to this, artists can have more affordable tools, as we develop, market, and sell it all OURSELVES. Trust me, it is not as easy as it sounds. And for that we are only asking 5$... It is not like we are cutting innocent's people's throats! If you ask me, I think it's a damn good deal, and seeing how very well known professional artists are also buying our brushes, and the constant thank yous we get, it seems that you are pretty much alone in thinking they are not useful.
Nowadays, everyone wants everything for free. Yes you will find free brushes online, but they will represent what you got: a cheap product. Yes you can pirate our products or gnomon's products, but then you are damaging your own future as an artist, great.

As opposed to you, I TRULY believe in learning from a mentor, a school, steambot or anyone talented for that matter, not necessarily only art, but also a "process" of thinking, on your own, you can only go so far. I have tried "doing it solo" as you advised, and very quickly discovered the limitations it brings, it plain sucks.
Now, not all schools are affordable, not all teachers are good, but then again, not all artists are as talented as the ones you mention. Not everyone is the same, and not everyone has the same learning curve, and not everyone is OK to work for free.

At SB we don't work for free, and no artist who has enough self-esteem should do so. We consider selling our brushes, gradients and other coming tools as work AND a passion, as much as sharing, and we also believe it deserves something back.
And if you do not agree with all this, why don't you share your brushes too?

I thought about explaining my stance on lectures/dvds but i ended up cutting it for the sake of not being too long winded.

Workflows and insight - like gnomon, which i had free access to at University including your own - are fantastic, but what i took away were more ways of thinking and concepts as a whole. Of all the gnomon dvd's i found ones that talked about ideas outside of the painting itself the most valuable, like Iain McCaigs, yours and Bob Katos dvd on painting faces.

I dont believe in the idea of talent, but this is a whole other ball game - i think that most of it is a mindset and a way of viewing the world which would be dictated in someway by upbringing. So i think that everyone is capable of becoming a fantastic artist given the hardwork. I'll agree that having a good mentor can guide exceptionally well however if you look at the quality of portfolios required to enter some artschools theyre already at a level where theyre able to work professionally so the tuition theyd be exposed to would be? (i've no insight, perhaps honing of fundamentals and highconcept ideas?) - As a side note i dont know if you were a part of eatpoo back in the day? Eitherway, the noob guide was a pretty well refered to thing in that it reinforced observational drawing and anatomy studies etc. It came into being because that advice was so commonly echoed (which is why i think a lot of people need to just work on fundamentals prior to getting into trappings like brushes etc).


So to clarify, i think theres a big difference between paying for a step-by-step tutorial, which some dvds are, and paying for a chance to listen to someones wisdom. By wisdom i guess a good example would be books like [link] and [link] - These are things that will change your point of view. Basically when it comes to teaching i like the whole Teach a man to fish concept rather than; [link]

To refer back to my paragraph where i mention eatpoo - It's not that i dont value the idea of tutorials or the quality of your brushes its more to do with how they get marketed. While eatpoo really hammered home the fundamentals (amongst other things), when i see how Conceptart and you (in this case on deviantart) are marketing these brushes / tutorials it frustrates me. There are SO MANY people that are starting out that buy into it like its a get rich quick scheme, i mean... you cant really deny that sales will come from people that, if you saw their paintings, would be better off practicing fundamentals.

On the flipside you have things like the Gnomon Masterclass, which is very appealing to me - while its expensive it was also targeting its demographic better i feel. Thinking about it in some ways i dont mind the idea of you selling brushes its just where youre doing it, youre NOT calculating so i dont think you want to "take advantage" of amateurs, but you will because art is "hard" (read; time consuming) and people want an easy out.

Also, i still dont like how you try to discredit some brushsets because theyre free, i don't know if you have used [link] or [link] But free and "cheap" are different things - And to assign intrinsic value to a brush when in the hands of a professional mundane tools create masterpieces.


In short, i value knowledge and wisdom and i dont really have a huge problem with the idea of selling specific brushes. I've very little interest in money or physical things but thats something thats been instilled in me. As for why i dont share my brushes too? Mine are an amalgamation of other peoples, to upload them as my own would be wrong. Although to defend my lazyness - People often create brushes to solve their own problems, i mean... youve obviously tried brushes by others and you have no idea of their application and you end up finding new uses for it, contrary to its original purpose. So regardless of a brushes function it evolves per user, so while i didnt make them i apply them in my own way.

Side note - TED is something i love.


Long winded and thanks for taking the time to respond.

Trying to make money from brushes that are available for free elsewhere is low. And, surely, nobody believes that by just owning your brushes they will become an "accomplished painter!"

I hope you don't make a penny from this.

What the hell are you talking about??
None of these brushes are available anywhere else.

It took us YEARS to develop these brushes, hard work was put in that, and you obviously are not knowing what you are talking about: it is kind of insulting and sad.

Dude, don't waste your breath on these helpless fools, they can't wrap their heads around the concept of breaking your ass for years to get somewhere in this business amongst all the competition and rightfully wanting to profit modestly off of it.

God forbid you actually make money from your labor.
Im so so sick of these fuckin leeches who expect everything for free off of the backs of the go getters and creators.
Thank you for bringing these brushes to market, man - you could have just kept them to yourself.

I would use them if I wasn't painting with Photoshop 7 hee hee.
Love your art, Boss.
God bless

Hey Brad, good to hear from you!
Absolutely right, side effect of internet or our modern society, where ACCESSIBILITY is the word on the mouth of everybody.
They want art like videogames: FREE TO PLAY. No way.
We just have to look at your work, or mine, to see that there is not only brush work or tricks. But they forget that despite the fact we love what we do, we have to live of it.
If not, what<s the fucking point? PS7, you wanna say PS6? Ahaha no worries for the brushes bro, actually it,s me who wanna know more from you.

I downloaded and tried them! Thanks for the link.
They are pretty cool, but they can't be used for business use apparently :( as mentioned in their pdf.

As opposed to our brushes: once bought you can use them on any production you want.
