How to Illustrate a Luxurious Emerald and Gold Monstera Graphic With 5 Photoshop Brushes

Follow along as I use photoshop brushes and layer styles to illustrate a luxurious monstera illustration in Photoshop.

In this Photoshop tutorial, I am using some of my favorite Photoshop brushes and layer styles to create a maximalist Monstera illustration. Once you create this Monstera motif, you can turn it into a card design, a pattern, a digital background for sale, or whatever you like.

I use five Photoshop brushes in this tutorial, including my favorite dimensional gold Photoshop brushes, to create a very luxurious effect with the Monstera leaf. I start out by using some of my emerald layer styles from the Celestial GoldMine collection, as well as some creative couture layer styles, to give a sparkling and sequined effect to the Monstera leaf. I also show you some of my process and workflow that I went through to experiment and find the right brushes for this project.

If you are a subscriber, you can download the demo Photoshop files for this tutorial as well as the loaded Photoshop brushes. I have received great feedback on the loaded Photoshop brushes because it saves you time from having to search your brush panel for the right brush to follow along with the tutorial. You just get to pick up the brush and start painting and creating.
