I've completed a lynda.com video training title covering Photoshop CS5's Mixer Brush last month in Ventura, CA. The title, Photoshop CS5: Painting with the Mixer Brush, will cover the mechanics of adjusting the Mixer Brush and its companion feature, Bristle Tips. These new additions to Photoshop CS5 enable natural-media style brushes that mimic traditional oils and acrylics. I've included a lot of tips and tricks for creating your own brushes, as well as provide sample starter brushes.
A release date has not been announced, but I heard from a little birdie that it will be out by summer's end.
