    Unhappy Brush Stroke looks noisy/pixel

    Hey Guys, I recently bumped into a strange issue.

    When I ever I am digitally painting in the dark values, and start layering brush strokes for blending, the brush strokes start to come out noisy/dissolve looking making it difficult to blend and get smoothing tones.


    This only seems to happen in the dark value, as seen in the image below.

    As for my current settings.

    The layer I am painting is normal, opacity 100 percent, flow, 100 percent. its just a simple round brush. The mode for the brush is normal.

    Photoshop CS3
    Resolution is 300 pixels/inch
    Color Mode RGB 8 bit
    Background contents White

    Advance
    Color profile-Working RGB sRGB IEC61966-2.1
    Pixel Aspect ratio- Square pixels.

    I did a reset on Photoshop to start off clean with defaults, and the same thing happens.

    Any tips/advice would be appreciated thanks.

    Hi Vonzent,

    You just have to set the spacing of your brush all the way down, that will fix the problem It's under Brush Setting.

    Looks like the spacing on your brush is cranked too high. Set it down to 1-10%, if that causes too much lag on your machine move it up to 15-18%

    It's a brush spacing issue, in the left the brush is set to pressure on opacity or flow, 9% spacing, in the middle 2% spacing, the right no pressure.

    If I understand well what Vonzent is saying here, it's nothing related to brush spacing.

    It seems to be an "issue" which appears on screens with limited value ranges ( cheap screens ), or in some cases, with some operations and lack of values to work with.

    You can try to work in 16-bit per channel ( I have not tried myself but in theory, it should be better )

    Another thing to check is the quality of the screen. Low quality screens don't cover correctly the full range of colors and create banding ( generally, you can see that in the color chooser )
