Lightbulb retouching brushes

hi everyone.
i only joined today but i hope to make a significant contribution to this website.
well my question is
i have been looking for brushes for retouching for quite some time.
i am interested in

eye catch light brushes
lip gloss reflection brushes
skin texture brushes (for the face)
and
false eyelash brushes

i have been looking for some free ones.
so anyone who can link me to some brushes to download, i will seriously kiss the ground at your feet. lol

by the way i have photoshop 7
and with the catchlight brushes, i have been looking for the softbox ones (square reflections) because i can already recreate the umbrella ones.

so...

anyone who can.
i love you

Re: retouching brushes

If you ever do any commercial work, be sure the free eyelash brushes license you to use them for payed work.

Re: retouching brushes

Mileeeeeeenaaaa,

I will be posting a professional grade set of hi-res eye catch-light brushes...the kind that you are looking for... and several other kinds of high-end retouching brush sets at a web site I am currently working on. You can PM me if you like. I expect to be up and running with the site around Feb 15th or so. I will also have various turorials and videos and a beta DVD for high end retouches. Here is a link to a video clip that shows the different kinds of brushes being used.(the eye light and eye lash brushes)

Cheers

Ray12

Looking for a large range of catchlight brushes, anyone have any access to these? I looked at the links above but didn't find anything.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for asking. The New York Retouch Site is not going to be my main retouching tutorial and retouching resource site. Thanks for asking though.

The new site... GlamourRetouching.Com should be live soon. I am working on it presently. Photoshop I understand... but Dreamweaver for website web creation has been a real challenge! LOL The GlamourRetouching.Com site will offer updates to the tutorial I have done here on Dior Retouching... (I would like to update the information here too) and will also offer many new kinds of brush sets and several new retouching technologies not seen widely in the marketplace before.

I will have 3 different kinds of skin pore texture technologies that will enable you to paint or replace skin pore textures after you have retouched or smoothed areas of the face. I also have eye lash brushes ready, lip gloss brushes, eye catch light brushes, and iris texture brushes.

I also have a new technology coming out for doing "electronic makeup" for Photoshop CS-CS4 that is totally vibrant, blends perfectly into the existing skin colors, uses actual NYC makeup artist color pallets, and is totally non destructive... so the colors never cover over important skin detail. All makeup will be totally adjustable in color, intensity and placement and will be remembered even after saving and recalling the image. Im totally excited about it. I wish I could get the Dreamweaver work doner faster.

Ray12
