    brush question CS6

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a traditional calligraphy artist and since very recently i'm trying to do some digital calligraphy painting but i'm having a very hard time in simulating the cal. brush effect i'm after. Could you guys maybe help me out on witch brush to use and how to configure my brush settings in PS CS6.

    I have included an image of the brush effect i'm after (Link),

    i understand that its probably going to be impossible to emulate the exact same effect but i'd like to come close where you could see the effect of the brush hairs in the stroke. I have been honestly trying hours before asking for help but i'm not getting anywhere.

    All help would be greatly appreciated!

There are a few default brushes that you can use to emulate this effect. Also, to get that slight change of value within the brushstrokes make sure that color dynamics is enabled and set to foreground/background by pen pressure (or tilt?)

I suspect that the originals are done with the palette knife in painter, btw.

    Hi Ricardo, i had a chance to play around with the brush and had some good fun, like you said its not perfect but i'm sure the reason is that emulating a real brush has its limitations...Besides that my efforts don't even come close to the quality of your brush. I'll sure be using it and its also a good brush as a starter point and customize a bit. So you helped out a great deal here! Thnx again and hopefully i can return the favor one day!

    Have a good one!
