Reasons to Use Circle Brushes
Circle brushes can be as useful as any other brushes for graphic designers. Several reasons for this are stated below.
- They are easy to handle. It is easier to maintain symmetry and proper measurements of circular images when you use these circle brushes.
- They create uniformity. If you’re making a series of different or the sizes of circles, you’re sure that your next circular figure is similar and identical to the previous one.
- They make a perfect shape. Instead of drawing circles directly on your work space using the pen tool, a circle brush ensures that you’re not making a distorted shape.
- They enhance visual impact. Even if you do not use these brushes as a major design component, they surely add a little extra “oomph” and visual interest to your design.

Getting the Most Out of Your Brush Settings
For digital artists, the Photoshop brush is the most important tool that you need to master inside out in order to take the best out of this software. Here are some essential tips that you need for your brush settings that can be best applied to these circle brushes.
- Size and hardness. When using your circle brushes, make sure to use the appropriate settings for size and hardness. Size refers to the diameter of the brush, in this case, the size of your corner element; while hardness refers to the clarity and sharpness of the edges of your brush.
- Opacity and flow. The next settings that you should be familiar with are opacity and flow as well as the difference between them. These have to do with translucency and buildability of color, in case you want to layer a couple of different or the same type of brushes.
- Spacing. Spacing refers to the visibility of the space left by the brush tips when you color, forming a jittery-looking line. It can be great for decorative brushes, such as the corner brushes. For the circle brushes, however, you may need to adjust it to form a smooth-edged line.
- Pressure sensitivity. This is specially useful when you’re are using a pen instead of a mouse. Instead of drawing uniformly dense lines, adjusting the pressure sensitivity allows you to create various density on a line based on the pressure you’re drawing them in.
