Hi all... I'm playing around with the Painter 8 demo. I don't really need 90% of what it does, but the one thing I'd love to be able to do with it is emulate black & white sketching on a grainy medium-toned paper. I don't mean having the texture applied to my brush strokes (well, that too but...) I mean I want to start out on a blank canvas that looks like a medium-toned grainy paper and I just want to use something like the charcoal or pencil brushes on it in greyscale.
If you have ever seen any of KChen's gargoyle sketches you'll see what I'm shooting for. errr... rather, I'm not necessarily drawing gargoyles, heh... but you see what I mean. I'd like to emulate that particular media combination. Does that make sense?
