Realistic Charcoal Brush by WojtekFus Realistic Charcoal Brush by WojtekFus
Follow me on facebook! 

Lately I have been experimenting with brush editor in Photoshop aiming for resembling some traditional media tools. I really love traditional charcoal and I couldn't find any alternative for PS on the web. So I decided to create one. Gathered reference, tried to remind myself how it feels on the paper and by trial and error I achieved something that I'm sharing with you. I'm sharing it mainly as an encouragement to experiment and make your own little brush. Try it yourself, maybe improve. And if you like it, pass it on! Enjoy!

OOOPS! Clicking on the download button takes me to Deviant Art's "This Page doesn't Exist" error message. Is the link broken? Is it no longer active? That's such a shame. I was looking forward to downloading the brushes. :`/  Perhaps the brushes moved? If so, please let me know? Thank you!

I have already downloaded this RAR folder. But there is no .ABR file which I can find as my tool preset. How I can use .TPL file in the folder? Thank you for advice beforehand.

Charcoal is one of my favorite mediums for quick works- I love sketching with charcoal and was trying to make a charcoal brush this evening and failing miserably.  You've made my evening

Hey c:
I was just wondering if you could maybe explain to me how you downloaded this brush?
I would really love to use it but I don't know how to get it...

To download it, click the large download button the right side of the page. You need an archive opener such as Winzip or 7zip. 

Open your Photoshop installation folder. Go to presets, then brushes. Drag the .abr file into there. Launch Photoshop. Done.
