Down the texture rabbit hole

So usually the main page of LJ has links to articles about celebrities I don't care about, or politics I feel impotent about, and maybe some kitty pictures that entertain me for an hour or two. But yesterday I spotted a link to a TEXTURES community, which led me to some small icon-sized textures, and then to someone who had large-sized textures I could actually use for download, which led me to someone else who had awesome Photoshop brushes for download, which led me to look up a Lynda.com tutorial about what's new in brushes in CS6....
Whew!
I still have a bit more video to go. But it's some exciting stuff.
brushes
And now I have like 100 new brushes to play with too. (The image above was me testing the built-ins.)

I actually learned most of my Photoshop from the icon making comms here on LJ. There are some great tips to be had on them. Thanks for the heads up on the textures.

DeviantArt has lots of free PS stuff. I could get lost there. I've downloaded so much there is no way I'll ever use it all, but I see it and must have it!

I don't think I've ever looked on LJ's main page since I signed up.
Brusheezy.com is my source for brushes and textures. I also started making my own--it's so easy.
CS6... I don't even have CS5 yet.

Brusheezy was where I ended up really losing myself.

I'm also finding that the brush behavior is more important than the tip, and when you're downloading a brush, what you're really getting is just the tip. (This is something I knew but it's helping me to articulate it.)
