Brush textures

1. Open an image with a person(solo) in it. In my case i choose this.
Posted Image
2. Use any cutting tools and get the person out off the background.
Posted Image
3. Open your original image then put it under the layer which the background was removed.
Posted Image
4. Choose Brush Tool. Download this brush and load it.
- Create a new layer under the layer which the background was removed. Pick this brush.
Posted Image
- Brush it on your new layer like this.
Posted Image
5. Create a new layer over the layer which the background was removed.
- Download this brush(this is different from the other one) and load it.
- Set your foreground color to #c6eaf9.

Posted Image
- Duplicate the layer which the background was removed. Pick this brush. Rechoose the layer which the background was removed not the duplicate layer. Start smudging on the edge of your lady how to have something like this:
Posted Image
Change it's color mode to Color Dodge.
Posted Image
- Duplicate the duplicate layer. Smudge its edges. Change color mode to Soft Light.
Posted Image
7. Go to menu Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map.Pick any gradient you feel it suitable to your image. Change its color mode to Overlay, Opacity to 70%.

^Thank you po. Here's another.

Abstract Brushes(I've made something like this before. But haven't had a chance to remember how. :lol:)

Download Ultimate Brush Pack Here.

1. Create a new Document Image 400x300.
Posted Image
2. Set Foreground color to #752341. Select Soft Brush Tool, set it's size to 500px. Paint it in a New Layer.
Posted Image
3. Create a New Layer. Select some of the grundgy brushes, set Foreground color to #FF99B4 and use them in your New Layer. Set it's blending mode to Soft Light.
Posted Image
4. Set your Foreground color to #FED2DD and repeat the step above in a New Layer.
Posted Image
5. Create a New Layer layer again. Identify a center point on the document and find those brushes that stretch out in various directions. We will need to make these shapes look as they diverging out from the same point. Set you Foreground color to #000000 and use those brushes in different sizes as shown below.
Posted Image
6. Create a New Layer. Use the same gundgy brushes, paint a few spots of Blue around.
Posted Image
7. Create a New Layer. Repeat step 5 but this time with other brushes and Foreground color to #E25884 and leaving the blend mode to Normal.
Posted Image
8. Create a New Layer. Set Foreground color to #FFFFFF. Choose the brushes to wish to be glowing on your subject and paint them in the layer.
Posted Image
9. Right-click on the layer and select Blending Options. Activate Outer Glow and mode to Color Dodge with a color #FF0000 size 30px.
Posted Image
10. Try repeating step 9 for more nice results.
Posted Image
11. How can we use this for an image? For me I open a new Document Image ww400x300 with a transparent background. Find an standing human image. Of course, always SG(FTW). :p
12. Put your image between the layers not above all the layers to have nice results. Don't forget that you can still edit or move the layers so do it if needed. You can now delete your Background White Layer. Add something in your image for it to look good. I added a solid white shadow and a duplicate layer with a Blending Mode of Soft light in my image.
Posted Image
13. Remember step number 5? Change the Blending Mode of the layer in step 5 to Soft Light.
14. Finish it by merging your layers. Predefine your image using either Image>Adjustments>Color Balance or Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation. Add text. Save it as .PNG or .GIF file. Done.

Here are some of our results.
