In this short Unity tutorial I'll show you how to create custom brushes to be used within Unity for terrain. Unity has built in brushes for sculpting and painting terrain which can do most of what you'll need to create awesome environments but sometimes you want to customize things. This is where a custom brush will come into hand.

We'll be using Photoshop CC for this but feel free to use any image editing program you want. All you need is a PNG file with a transparent background for this to work. I'll be showcasing some brushes from Tim Von Rueden's brush pack.
