    Illustration, rendering

    Hello folks!

    I've started to use painter recently, i have alittle knowledge of the program itself yet.
    Now my question is which brushes you use for rendering and general cocncept designs etc. In photoshop it's very eas, but painter emulates alot from traditional media, thus makes it hard to go in with that small brush to finish things out. I've been using oil pastels abit as i seem to like the most for the way they behave, but overall they can turn your piece into a too much blended and soft.

    Like i did it here on that doggy's head:

    Altho i love painter for how great colors you can get with it's mixing method as i got here:

    Now please list any brushes that are great for this purpose or what to twaek with those currently located in painter, any tutorials are welcome also.

    work in higher resolutions - scaling down will give you a sharper look;
    also, try painting finer details with round camel hair brush (found in oils cat.) - it's similar to oil pastels, but needs practice to get used to.

    on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
    four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace

    it can look too blended if you only blend or smudge to make transition, but you can also make transitions by add an intermediate value between the light and the shadow instead of pulling them together which "losses" it edge. when you add this value all your edges can be hard but it gives the impression of blending while keeping the painting for getting fuzzy.

    You can make any brush (well most) harder... ie less smudgy/blended/soft by changing the Bleed setting and also the Resaturation setting.

    Choose your brush, go to Window/Brush Controls/Well and change the Bleed slider. The higher the percent the more bleed, so to make a brush sharper lower the amount.

    Resaturation affects how much the brush colour is blended. ie at 100% the colour is totally what you've selected in the colour wheel. At 1% the colour will initially blend a lot more with whatever colour is underneath it, and as you drag the brush the colour from the colour wheel comes through. Therefore if you want less blending make the Resaturation at a higher percent.

    You also may want a needle brush, grab the brush you like most, change spacing to minimal, and to change size to a 0% so the brush can do tiny details at the end, cause the scratchboard pen its really annoying and hard to control, i made a cover pencil this way and leave me soft tiny lines, that i use for tiny details.

    There are no such things as bad art, just tight deadlines.
