Not sure if this has been asked here before, so I'll throw it in the batch.
Does anyone have any brush that resembles the PS brush which Coro uses in his latest educational vid? The so-called perspective brush. I would love having something as simple as it to be able to use in speedies.
Somewhere, recently, another person mentioned a "perspective brush", and I've been wondering what the heck that could be.
It's hard to imagine why it would be named that, but if anyone can show us an example of what it does, it's possible one or more of us can help.
In the meantime, can you describe what it does?
Rather than use a perspective brush, I prefer to use shapes - they do exactly the same thing and look identical but they are easier to manipulate and have less memory overhead.
Here's one you can use in both Painter and Photoshop:
To bring it into Painter go to File --> Acquire --> Acquire Adobe Illustrator Shape. Once it's in a your document you can move it, resize it, distort it and lower its opacity.
~Jin : It's hard for me to explain, I can show you a shot of Coro's vid, perhaps it will help. He uses the brush (which basically is just a bunch of lines) as guidelines to get a good enough perspective grid, in a fast manor. he doesn't really draw with is, so the name perspective BRUSH is perhaps misinterpreted, instead he just transforms it so it will fit in the settings required. Hope that was somewhat understandable...
~frog from itchy : I'll check it out, thanks.
Saw that brush too, but seriously that brush (or something better) would takes about 10 mins to make in painter if you really need it. Or go grab the m@ brushes used
then go get the abr viewer software and import it into painter - easy.
I hope m@ (Mathias) doesn't mind - he did post them as free PS brushes so I guess it would not be an issue if you utilized them in Painter. BTW Depending on what you're trying to do, you could use painter's perspective grid to get things going as well.

Thanks for the tutorial. Knew it was possible, but haven't really looked much into it. But what I didn't know is that you can import PS files into Painter. Sound interesting, but perhaps there is a catch ?
Thanks anyway for the suggestions!
It's simply a one-point perspective grid.
Itchy's is very similar to one I made a few years ago, using Corel Painter's Pen tool.
It's true that it's very easy to do, only takes a few minutes.
The advantage of using the Pen tool (Shapes) is the grid can be scaled up or down, lines can be made any color, and changed over and over again to suit whatever you need at the moment.
Now... "perspective brush" ? Why on earth would this ever be called a brush?
Oh well, what I don't know won't hurt me.
Thanks Chris and Itchy.
haha, it's called brush because Coro (or m@) doesn't draw the perspective grid every time. He has drawn it once, and then created a brush of it for faster usage during painting
