The Powerpuff Girls and Mojo Jojo, by Mike Mignola
So I decided to make my brushes available to download for a pay-what-you-want donation via Gumroad.
There are 5 brushes included with 3 variants:
- Braid Original - default, tight, and messy
- Braid Shine - default, tight and messy
- Braid Toon - default, tight, and messy
- Braid Solid
- Braid Blueprint (not pictured)
As someone who loves drawing detailed hair and is a perfectionist, I made these brushes to help expedite the process. These brushes do not replace being able to draw braids, and require a level of editing to look right. They are not meant to be slapped-down as is, unedited, into a final polished work - used alone they can render a drawing quite flat as they ignore light sources, and their level of detail my not match the illustration or your style. It is important to know how to touch them up and edit them. Another use for them is as sketches, guides and reference, which is what the Blueprint brush is explicitly for.
The blueprint brush in particular is meant to be used as a sketch or reference, not to replace drawing a braid.
Here are examples of the brushes being used with other brushes, as an example of how they can look with editing:
Below is a quick example used in conjunction with another natural hair brush set I’m working on as well. After putting the braids down with the brush, their details were simplified by drawing over them to match the level of detail of the rest of the drawing, and the start of the braid (where the hair is pulled in) was drawn in.
Holy hot damn, this is amazing. Thank you!

Man or Mantis Series
No other insect can take on, or be assumed to be showing, human mannerisms and expressions more exquisitely than the mantids. I challenge you to come up with captions for each image reflecting the expressions/emotions/mood/thoughts of this praying mantis in each case…..
