Penemuel's Artwork

Most of the artwork I had been doing at first was Smallville, but when I did a Secret Adventures of Jules Verne illo, and then a Stargate skin for my roomie's MP3 player and a wallpaper for one of her stories [which won't be up here yet because it gives things away...], I realized I need to make a page just for the artwork...

I don't know where I've been, but apparently user-defined Photoshop brushes are all the rage. I just discovered these (they must have been around for a while, because most of the ones I found on the net aren't compatible with my old version of PS...), and have been playing with them on some art.

Some of these pictures have been created using an assortment of brushes from the following sites:

I've made some screensavers using my collages and some music files. Since those are HUGE, there are also versions you can download without the music files, which are much smaller files. Just save the .exe file to your desktop and double click on it, and it should automatically install the screen saver. The software I bought to make these says it's simple to use -- if you have ANY problems, let me know, since I haven't had a chance to test one of these after downloading, because I made them. :)

I tried to do a zipped version of the files for quicker downloading, but it didn't make the download any smaller. Sorry!

Photoshop Brushes
Okay, I give up. I'm addicted to Photoshop brushes now. I've made some of my own, and have some sets available. The first three are all Smallville-themed, and can be downloaded from here or Club Zero's Downloads section. The fourth set is made up of lyrics from Evanescence songs -- I may be doing more of these when I have some spare time...

These brushes were all made in Adobe Photoshop 6.0, and therefore are usable in that version and higher. Sorry to anyone still using 5.5 -- I just had to upgrade, myself.

The images used to make the Smallville brushes are from the official WB Smallville website,, and various screengrabs. No copyright infringement is intended, and no profit will be made. These brushes are linkware; free to anyone who wants to use them as long as you put a link back to me on your site, and please don't claim them as your own work. Each set begins with a small square brush with my name on it, so a) you can remember where you got them :) and b) you can tell when one set ends and another begins. This was an excellent suggestion by Vrya on her (unbelievably useful and beautiful) website.

If you don't know how to use or load brushes, you should check out her tutorial on that site -- it's the best one I've seen anywhere!

I've seen a number of brush sites that claim it's a lot of work making brushes, and while it can be, it's not THAT hard. :) Use them, enjoy them, let me see what you do with them!! Click on the images to download; if that doesn't work, right click and 'save target as'.
