Photoshop section illustration.
To make this illustration, we just took the lasso tool, and drew a random shape like this one! You can obviously do whatever you want. When on the layer of the selection, just start taking your brushes.
The selection helps you out with what you want the illustration to be. Make sure, that when you are selecting the brushes, play around with the opacity and size of them, this way you can add some depth and of course some volume to make it look real.
Speeding up the process a little bit, you will see that this illustration is made out of brushes only. Our pack has brushes of people, bushes, trees, even butterflies and doves. Ambient the illustration however you want.
At the end, you can add other elements if you like, depending on what you want to represent in your project. In this case, we just used a round brush to make the circle and erased everything left outside, and added a texture!
Have you done anything like this before with only brushes?
