    How might one achieve this in painter?

    Alright, i have been trying, for some time, to get this in painter, most recently, painter x. In the examples, i have circled what i would like to get rid of with a custom brush, in red. There is then an example of what i am hoping to replicate with a custom brush in painter. How might one go about getting rid of the overlap darkening? Any help appreciated! Thank you. . The image with non-overlap darkening was done in Open Canvas. .

    Arshes Nei, I tried that, fiddled a bit. It doesn't seem to be helping. . Thank you, though! .

    hmmmm...i can reproduce the effect but not in one stroke. seems like open canvas works on value with pressure instead of opacity with pressure. wait for Jin to read your question. He'll know how to do it if its possible.

    the solution...

    Death: To solve this you have to open the brush controls window, and in General change the method from buildup to cover.

    This must solve the problem.


    Good luck!

    Nien. I'm fairly sure that in the example above, it's on cover, and just to test and fiddle, i tried it. It's on cover. . Thank you, though. .

    What brush are you currently using? The brush that is giving you the problem?

    It's a custom brush, modified from a pencil brush...
    If anyone might suggest another modification, though. . Thank you. .

    Yeah, I've been playing around in the settings and have not found a solution. I was hoping Jin had a response for you by now. Hrm.

    This is an old problem, especially for Photoshop users.

    The only way I can think of to avoid color buildup when overlapping strokes or when a single stroke overlaps itself is to use full Opacity color. To avoid the buildup of color that comes with brush variants that use Method: Buildup change the Method to Cover.

    Watercolor and Digital Watercolor are intended to have the look of transparent color so Watercolor Layers are automatically set to Composite Method Gel to achieve that result. Likewise with Digital Watercolor when it's painted on a Layer also automatically set to Composite Method Gel. Then you'll often get buildup of color when it passes over underlying color. With Digital Watercolor, painting on a white Canvas, you may not always get color buildup as long as the paint remains wet.

    Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!

    In the brush creator, ensure your method is cover. Try setting your opacity to 100% with expression set to none. Then go to the Color expression and set the controller to pressure and make sure the checkbox next to it is unchecked. You should (based on what I assume your other brush settings to be) get a brush that is low sat/value and small at light pressure and full value/sat and big at full pressure. I think that'll do what you want.

    Holy fudge monkies! That's it! Thank you BDFoster. Mucho thank youz. . *Glee!!!!*!

    Edit : After some fiddleage, this is almost it. When i go over dark with little pressure, it goes light over the dark. But this is still awesome. Thank you again. Everyone! .

    Edit ni! Again, the first image is Painter, the Second image is Open Canvas.
