Ultimate Space Brush Pack - Part 1 by JeffrettaLyn Ultimate Space Brush Pack - Part 1 by JeffrettaLyn

EDIT: I had to split the file in half, since it was too large. This pack contains the stars, nebulae, and galaxies.

Part 2: Click here!

:star: Please click for full, clear veiw! :star:

To cope with the slight case of design block I've been experiencing, I've recently started dabbling in the ever fascinating Space Art, which is loads of fun. :D

What is not always fun, though, is trying to remember all the gazillions of brush sets you used, finding the correct links, posting them in each deviation, and trying to remember all those rules from all those brush makers that if you don't follow you'll get your head chewed off. :stare:

So, I have decided to remedy this situation by making my own Ultimate Space Brush Set! And I said 'Ultimate' for a reason! There are 154 brushes in this set, including stars, planets, galaxies, comets, nebulea, asteroids, and textures. For the beginning space artist, this is your go-to brush pack for making some awesome art! And that's not even the best part. :D

:eager: Wanna know the best part? :eager:

:squee: It's 100% free! :squee:

I mean it! No links, credits, faves, comments, nothing is required, except that you take these and have fun! :aww: (Comments and faves are always appreciated of course, and I'd love to see a link to any work you make. Space art never gets old.)


:new: PaintShop Pro X2+ :new:

*jaynedarcy converted these brushes to make them compatible for PaintShop Pro! :wow:

Download them: [link]
:bulletblack: Photoshop Elements 7.0 +

To install:
Copy (right-click or drag) the abr file into your Photoshop brushes folder (make sure Photoshop is closed when you do this). In Windows Vista, the Brushes folder path is:

Computer > C: drive > Prgram Files > Adobe > Photoshop Elements 8.0 (or whichever version you have) > Presets > Brushes
:bulletblack: GIMP 2.6 +

To install:
Copy (right-click or drag) the .abr into your GIMP brushes folder (make sure GIMP is closed while you do this). In Windows Vista, the Brushes folder path is:

Computer > C: drive > Users > Your Computer's Name > .gimp 2.6 (or whatever your version is) > Brushes
:bulletblack: Photoshop CS5 +

To install:
Copy (right-click or drag) the .abr file into your Brushes folder (make sure Photoshop is closed when you do this).
:bulletblack: All Other Art Programs

You will need to make the brushes yourself. I have uploaded the image pack to make it easier, but I cannot help you make brushes in any program but Photoshop. If you do make a brush set, feel free to upload it to DeviantART or elsewhere giving credit only to yourself and NASA, but please leave a link here so I can add your set to my description. :)

This is my first brush set, so I really don't have much experience making them. If you have trouble installing or using them, feel free to comment; however, there is a good chance I won't be able to help you.


Most of the images are free domain from NASA

Thanks to my sister, *FaerieBert, for her help throughout the brushmaking process.

Brushes made in Photoshop Elements 8

:wave: Thanks for looking! :wave:

Hello! Hi!
I used several of your brushes for the back of my picture:…

It was very helpful after I failed doing the flames and sparkles without brushes.
Thank you for sharing! :D (Big Grin)

are these and the part 2 ones free for commercial use? The website I wish to put my deviations on requires that all the brushes I use be commercial use-available, so I have to ask. :D

Ty for your time.

They are, for all intents and purposes, free to the public. If you upload them as they are, just give credit to NASA for the images. Enjoy!
