Paint a Munch-style portrait in Photoshop CC

As part of its Hidden Treasures of Creativity (opens in new tab) project, Adobe transformed the centuries-old paintbrushes used by Edvard Munch into a set of free Photoshop brushes and is offering them to Creative Cloud (opens in new tab) users completely free: download your brushes here (opens in new tab).

To help you make the best use of these brushes and channel your inner master painter, Adobe has also put together a series of video tutorials. The first tutorial (watch here (opens in new tab)) explains how to get started with digital painting in Photoshop. 

In the second tutorial – which you can watch below – award-winning Photoshop brush maker Kyle T. Webster shows you how to create an expressive self-portrait using Munch's original brushes.
