    I have a question about brushes. I want to use a brush to make an element, but they seem to be so... fuzzy. if you go over them twice, they are better, but you can't get rid of the "shadow" effect.

    Is there something I need to do to it, besides erasing all the edges?

    I have seen lots of neat elements made using different brushes, but i just can't make mine stand out.

    Thanks :D

    Looks like a shape with a gradient overlay.

    It is a shape with a gradient overlay, then you add some shading in the 'curves', and layer it to make the bunch.

    I want to take a brush, make the black outline, and then 'fill it' with gradients and such. The pencil still is a bit fuzzy on the edges. Do you think making a work path would be better out of the brush?
