20 Sets of Japanese-Themed Photoshop Brushes

For those of us who want to infuse some Japanese art in our designs, we are featuring today some of the best Japanese-themed Photoshop brushes that can be downloaded for free from around the web. Most of these Photoshop brushes are composed of the famous Sakura or cherry blossoms, which are a metaphor for life in the Japanese culture. Aside from cherry blossoms, we also included graphics about the rising sun, Japanese temples, paper folding fans, paper lanterns, bamboo, and other well known symbols or the Japanese culture and art.

To get the brush pack that you want, simply click on each preview image and it will take you to the download page. Terms and conditions on the use of these brushes are explained in the download/author’s page. I hope you enjoy this collection.

03- Sakura PS6 Brushes by Ninja-Ryo
This kit contains an .abr brush file (various brushes in different sizes), 1 preview image, a color chart (cherry blossom colors) and a ‘how to add this brush’ instruction sheet. For best results, start with the ‘branch’ brush on a separate layer – you can build up a unique branch image with overlaying the same branch at different angles. You can enlarge the branch by using CTRL-T. Try other blending options keeping everything on different layers as this is a multi piece kit (blossoms are in 3 parts for example).
