How these brushes are different Most pencil brushes use opacity and flow to determine the strength of their mark making and density. Texture is often an afterthought and feels tacked on. My real pencil brushes have locked opacity. They use a painstainkingly tweaked combinations of texture and flow settings to create the most realistic marks possible through a range of real pencil hardnesses.

Press hard and more tooth fills in for a more opaque stroke. Press light and the stroke shows more paper. Use a harder pencil lead and it will be, well, harder to fill in the paper’s virtual tooth. Use a softer lead and the tooth fills in more readily.

I use these brushes for almost all of my Photoshop sketching and have included new “real” style red and blue layout pencil variants as well as my more artificial, digital pencil brushes as a bonus. All of this for less than the cost of a real pack of sketching pencils!

I can’t wait to see what you make with them!

I need to check these out.

Japanese Pac-Man flyer, circa 1980.
The original Japanese title was Pakkuman (パックマン), inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeic slang phrase paku-paku taberu (パクパク食べる), where paku-paku describes (the sound of) the mouth movement when widely opened and then closed in succession. (…) The result was a game named Puck Man.
Later in 1980, the game was picked up for manufacture in the United States by Bally division Midway, which changed the game’s name from Puck Man to Pac-Man in an effort to avoid vandalism to the letter ‘P’. [info from Wikipedia]
