Phrenology Photoshop Brushes by hogret Phrenology Photoshop Brushes by hogret
A couple of phrenology diagrams, and a palmistry chart.

Brushes made in Photoshop CS from vintage etchings and engravings.

I used one of them here: [link]

Now, we all are familiar with the standard conditions - please fav or comment, credit appropriately, link back, blah blah etc etc. And we also all know that this is like too much hassle, and we don't do it.

So - really - it would be so nice if you did all these things (and would, furthermore, demonstrate that your mother brought you up right), but actually you are free to use these in any way that inspires you. (You gonna do that anyway, right?)

I'd also really enjoy it if you note me or comment here when you use the stock in a published piece - I'd love to see your work.

Ok, this is by far the best titled set of PS brushes ever. I imagine you, sitting there at your computer, browsing DA and thinking...we need a brush pack. But what should it be?

Abstract swirly things? Grunge? Tribal tattoos?

Eager to begin, you scour your harddrive, looking for material. Nothing! Not a single curvy, splattered, or vaguely Celtic image to be found. But wait! What's this, hidden away under a sheaf unwanted mail and last year's taxes, pushed back into the far corner of C:\Documents and Settings\<You>\My Pictures\?

Ah, yes. A phrenology diagram. With gleaming eyes she launches photoshop, and begins to work. The night is young, and, ironically, so is Cognitive Science.

Love it love it - a fellow hyper-caffeinated, stream of consciousness, laterally creative commenter! Thanks for the comment - visit often, I like how you think.

Y'all welcome. Just dive in - I only started using Photoshop a month ago. The fundis like to surround it with an esoteric mystique, like ... dude ... this is sooo arcane and complicated. But there's a lot you can do as a rank amateur.

Thanks. I'll do that. I now have so many ideas that can't be done in the traditional manner.

Also, wanted to say that I have forgotten about 'dream aquarium' and in fact my wife has been asking me for a big piece, such as my 'Rocket Girl' or Red Cafe' and looking through the pieced I'd gathered for her I saw that they also fit your theme.

Pretty cool stuff indeed. Are you interested in phrenology ?

hogret Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
It's intriguing, don't you think? I've got a pretty bumpy skull (which is one of the reasons I've never shaved my head) and sometimes wonder what that means, other than that I fell out my cot onto my head as a baby.
But generally I just love old curiosities.
