Good to know. I made these about 10 years ago, so it's not something I'm going to rectify at this point. :)

How is it "wrong", though? Is it not a holiday menorah?

It IS a menorah, but it is not a Chanukkah menorah. 

Believe it or not, I had the same argument with another artist this past winter. So, I will give you the same answer I gave him:

The reason we have 9 candles now, though is because the holiday is also known as "The Miracle of Lights" because after the forces of Antiochus IV had been driven from the Temple (around 174 B.C.E.), the Maccabees discovered that almost all of the ritual olive oil had been profaned. They found only a single container that was still sealed by the High Priest, with enough oil to keep the menorah in the Temple lit for a single day. They used this, yet it burned for eight days (the time it took to have new oil pressed and made ready).

So, Channukkah menorah has 9 candles, 8 representing the eight days, and the Shamash candle (which is used to light the others). Each night, one additional candle is lit until the last night when all nine are aglow. (First night: Shamash +1, Second night: Shamash +2 etc.)


The 7 candled menorah came into play LONG before Channukkah. (The time of Moses.)


And, just so you know, there is no wrong way to spell Channukkah.

Awesome, good to know! I never realized there was a specific kind of Chanukkah menorah. Thanks for the heads up :)

Follow the link to my website, and click on the "Multiple Colors with Brushes" tutorial.

It's a lot more work than it's worth, in most cases. If you want these in color, I advise looking for some PNGs. It can be done, but it's like coloring in a coloring book, and there's some tricks to it. 

But Photoshop brushes can only be used in the currently selected color, so that's why your'e seeing them in black & white. If you selected red and used it, they'd be red & white. That's how Photoshop brushes were made to be used. 

These brushes work better if you're in a monochromatic palette. But check out that tutorial and you'll see what I mean. It's pretty helpful (as are all my other tutorials!) for Photoshop beginners.

I'll be using these brushes for my card designs on my Facebook Page OceanMoon Graphics. I design the cards for free, so there's no commercial use from them. =)
Thanks for sharing these.
