Creating Realistic Animated Snow in Photoshop

So I stumbled on another happy accident this week. I wanted to figure out how to create really realistic animated snow in Photoshop. As I was experimenting I had a eureka moment. Watch how you can use 3D in Photoshop to create a seemingly random particle snow effect you can use in any number of ways!

So with all the Cyber Monday madness going around, I thought I would give away something that I hope you find useful. I made a chart of all the brushes and their default stroke characteristics for CS5 or 6... I can't remember which :D So I went in today and checked to see if they still matched up and only the default brushes section is missing a few for Photoshop CC. I also added Natural Brushes and Natural Brushes 2 to the chart. Either they weren't there before or I just misplaced them previously...but now they are there. A couple of things like Square Brushes got skipped due to the obviousness of those brushes and I should have killed Round Brushes for the same reason, but I had already made it so it survived. This chart it is for you to do whatever you would like, and hopefully find it useful in creating a quick reference guide to know which brushes you may want to load from the extra presets in the drop down settings. Enjoy!
