Sometimes there’s just something to be said for old world, Medieval craftsmanship and the attention paid to detail. Cathedrals were massive stone creations, rimmed with beautiful hand-cut stain glass, and housed elaborate statues and intricate paintings. Sure, some people might associate the time period with a creepy feeling, but whether you love it for the spook or you love it for the artistic value, you have to admit that there is a charm of the Gothic era! This article features some great Gothic inspired Photoshop brushes, so you can give all your projects that old world flare!
