YO! The amazing :iconnebezial: released a SUPER AWESOME blending brush for the smudge tool awhiles back. The only problem is in the newer versions of photoshop it does not work as intended :'(... So Today i took unto myself to find a remedy for all us CS6 loving fools & i do believe i did! So naturally it's my present to the world (and to nebezial if he ever starts using a new photoshop ;D )

Above image is a showcase as to how both brushes work in CS6. This is in no way meant to bash on Nebezial! His brush is AMAZING but unfortunately does not work correctly in CS6. The new tip shape and slightly adjusted settings help to alleviate the artifacting present in newer versions of PS with the original brush and create a more seamless diffuse blending effect.

USAGE: I recommend this be used with the Smudge Tool & at about 20-50% opacity!

Please check out :iconnebezial:'s gallery his body of work is amazing and his techniques equally so!

DOWNLOAD ON THE RIGHT!

EDIT:: I've received complaints that the blending brush was far too laggy at higher resolutions. To combat this i've adjust a small setting or two and now the brush should work at much higher resolutions (Brush size works laglessly for me at over 2000px brush size...i did not test further than that) Thank you :iconthrillcube: for pointing out this flaw!

I'm gonna give this a shot. If I use it I'll credit them once to let them know that I'm using it for my upcoming works.

Hey there, if your in photoshop with your brush tool, simply 

Right click on canvas (with brush or smudge tool selected it will bring up a brush list)>find the options box (upper right corner) click on it
click on "Load Brushes"> find the file you downloaded (it should be a .ABR) and load it
the brush should appear at the bottom of your brush list. You can select your Smudge tool and then select the brush.
Once you have the brush you can change the smudge tool setting to somewhere between 30-60%
Simply stroke on the canvas over things that need to be blended (make sure your on the right layer) and wala.

Thanks so much!!! I didn't realize it was on the bottom of the brushes. So does this brush work AFTER you colored something?? 
Pardon me if the question seems totally dumb.

Zeth-09 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well really the point of the brush is to diffuse (blend) multiple colors together. So you would use it while coloring or shading. An example of this would be laying in your basic values (say really quickly scribbling in or blocking in your darks and lights) and then once their blocked in going over it with the blender. It should give you a fairly smooth transition and gradient. If you wanna see how to use a blender brush like this in action take a look at this video from Nebezial.

(At around 1:15 he'll use the blender, if you watch the whole thing he uses it constantly while he paints.)
Hope that helps clear up how to use it.

Fantastic! Thank you! How should I use this blender brush? (i'm kindaw new to photoshop, I work in SAI mostly), do I have to pick the darker colour between the two separated ones to make a better blending effect? Or perhaps it doesn't matter what colour should I pick between the two? Cheers
Btw, you have an amazing gallery! I've been checking it.

Zeth-09 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thank you! As for using the brush it's a fairly simple affair. Switch over to the smudge tool (should look like a little finger) pick the blender brush and adjust your smudge strength/opacity to around 30-50% and then brush and watch amazing diffuse color blending happen! Enjoy and i hope this helps you make wonderful art!

This brush should work right out of the box on CS5 as well (just tested) all i can recommend is that you use it with th smudge tool at around 40-50 percent strength.
