Photoshop inkpen by engelszorn Photoshop inkpen by engelszorn
Better preview. All inked with the pen at size 10 px.

I always dislike to ink in Photoshop since the lines are always blurry and too soft. You have to draw the inks at absurd resolution or the lines will look ugly. Painter has soft, smooth an clean lines, but it's not as easy to use as Photoshop.

Let me know if this brush is useful to you. Free to use.

Photoshop CS 2 and above

What program did you use?
Kunnai Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
I'm using photoshop elements 5. Oh, nevermind it works, but it's acting like water color instead of being solid.

I don't think PS brushes work with PS Elements :/ I'm sorry.
Kunnai Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012

Just found this by chance, and I'm loving it. My only issue is with the opacity, but I'm trying to work around that now.

from the first stroke to the last i like that brush =D it's soft enough to get smooth lines but hard enough to get clean lineart. the only thing i have to adjust is the minimum-opacity because i'm a softy ;D

I haven't tested this yet, but if it's one of those mock-traditional brushes, you are my absolute hero.

I tried corell and just did not like the set up .. no navigation window and I just did not like it compared to PS. So I hope this brush will help now that I am drawing and painting with a tablet! I hate my fuzzy lines.

Thanks for sharing! Using it right now, and gotta say like yourself i'm not a big fan of inking in photoshop but i think this brush gives the lines the sharp egde it's been missing from the default brushes.

You can try to install ist, but I don't have Elements 5 so I don't know if it works or not.
