    Custom Painter Brushes

    Hello, I had seen a tut online somewhere (quite awhile ago) about how to best create Painter brushes (similar to the look of custom-created brushes in Photoshop). Is anyone familiar with how to best do this in Painter?

    In other words, I'm looking for a detailed tut on how to create custom Painter brushes that will act in similar fashion as the brush creation engine within Photoshop. (I realize I basically repeated myself. Sorry.)

    Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

    I appreciate the help.

    Well to be honest there isn't an exact way to replicate Photoshop's brush engine. That is because the opacity is dab based in Painter - a dab is the shape an individual brush stroke makes. While Photoshop uses a stroke based opacity - the opacity stays with the stroke.

    But Zhu Zhu made a nice round brush, http://zhuzhu.deviantart.com/art/My-...ushes-55223889

    Thanks for the reply. I probably didn't clarify as much as I should've. I'm referring more to how to paint my own custom shapes then turn them into brushes (like grunge-style, texture styles, or from image sections, etc.). Hopefully that helps clarify what I'm looking for. So far, I've not been able to find the info online again.

    one thing that i do is create vector strokes via illustrator, rasterize them, and then turn them into patterns to be used with the pattern chalk but in such a way it feels more like a pen brush or something.

    I had found this.
    I could do something similar with patterns but I couldn't delete the background. But seeing that star brushes, i think it must be a way..

    Okay...thanks for the link. The brushes look interesting though I'm more interested in how they're created rather than the brushes themselves. Dissecting this files may be helpful. Thank you.

    I know this might sould like a jerk question, but have you tried Help within the program yet? That's how I first learned to make dab oriented brushes (brush shapes I created). BTW that CGSociety link Arshes Nei posted should more than get you started. Take care friend

    Yes! I do the same, except I use Inkscape.

    Artmessiah, yes...already read the Help-info (and much, much more). I just like to read as much about something as I can, from many locations, because you don't learn from just one source. No offense taken, however. Thanks.
