Water brush in Photoshop

I download the water brush from
http://redheadstock.deviantart.com/a...ushes-37338369

The thing is I can't find the perfect background for the brush. I chose a dark background and white for the brush color. The brush impact seems to be fading with the background. If I chose any other color of the brush then it doesn't good. How Does other people use these brushes?
I also got Rons wings of water brush

And the attached seems like the brush is used nicely. But I can't figure out the brush color for it.

I would think that the lack of comments would be because there may be no suggestions on how to improve the image.... You did GOOD! Looks fine to me..

That wasn't my image...it came with brushes.
That's the affect I would like to have but don't know how.

Re: Water brush in Photoshop

It is sort of difficult to give definitive instructions on how to apply a brush to make it look realistic so generalities would be something like this... Brushes like these are generally used on a separate transparent layer (choosing a color that is good for you)..

Change the layer blend mode to suit (adjust opacity, blur, etc on the brush layer maybe even adding a gradient map using the colors of your choice)

The layer styles blending can also be used to apply drop shadows and bevel/emboss to give it depth plus a whole spectrum of other goodies to tweak your brush layer... Just keep working it till it looks right to you...

The free transform tool, the Liquify tool, history brush and applying masks... all come in handy when trying to apply specialty brushes

Like everything else in Photoshop... Practice cubed using all the disciplines available to you!

Re: Water brush in Photoshop

What do you mean with "fade"? Because it's normal some brushes have a transition of translucency while others arr just opaque.

Re: Water brush in Photoshop

I downloaded the same brush the other day but haven't used it yet.

Perhaps try using the brush on a separate layer which allows you duplicate that layer - use different blending modes - or and fade or rather adust the opacity or fill of brush layers. Play with it and experiment.

My god I haven't posted here in ages always to busy reading up on things -oh well
