The other day I was wandering around the internet looking for images of extinct animals and I discovered this wonderful old book that had been scanned and was filled with 5000 woodcut (or perhaps lithographic) engraved images from the 1800s. I found a couple more books of the same type, but there was no means to search them all at once for the images I was looking for, so I compiled this page. Simply by hitting control/apple f you can browse the list of illustrations from a good number of vintage books and find what you’re looking for. Don’t know if this will be handy for you, but I am finding it quite useful.
I’ve seen a lot of photoshop brush sets based on similar engraving-style images, so if any of you are in the mood for that sort of thing, you can really have a blast.
[Search for sweet 1800s illustrations!]

This set is a bit different. I was helping clean out some old computer stuff and found an old manual with some nice diagrams in it. After scanning them I put together a brush set. I imagine these could be useful for any sci-fi designs. Have fun.

I have a thing for ink. It’s easy and radically awesome. Anyway, a while ago I made a brush set called Ink Blots, which were made with calligraphy ink within plastic bags. I let that fester in my closet for a while and rediscovered them a few hours ago. xD It was all fine; the ink had just spread out more and the shape of the blobs changed. So, why not, I made a new brush set called Ink Blotches with the new shapes.

Hello! I added a texture pack with images of copper plates. They have some really excellent grungey textures on them, so have a look. I can’t wait to use them myself.
In other news, I got Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 the other day, and it’s really quite a disappointment. I haven’t found any features that make it better than PsE 4.0. Rather, it just seems simplified (and stupified) so people who don’t know anything about image editing can make kitschy images. Feels really unprofessional, and definitely not worth what it costs.

I made a little teaser post about ink smears a while ago, but never got around to making any content until today. Anyhow, that aside I now have a wonderful brush set you can download on that theme. C: Click the image to go to the brush page.
