Looking for a specific type of brush...


Recommended Posts

I've been looking high and low, but coming up short, in looking for a specific brush option.

It's absent from the program, as far as I can tell, and I haven't been able to find a mod that meets what I'm looking for, even when carousing about the Plugin Index.

Is there a plugin out there, or even a tool in this program, that mimics the paint brush strokes seen in the Windows 7 version of MSPaint?

I'm talking about that effect where the brush fades out, like it ran out of paint. Any help would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately, there's isn't a tool to do that. One work around is to use transparent gradient and fade out where you want the fade to start and end.

Smudge can do that too. I think if you set the pressure really high or something like that, you can make it fade. Give both tips a try and let me know which works. I'm eating dinner and typing this at the same time.

It is actually too bad that there are not brushes like that in pdn, maybe someone can create some of those for the custom mini brushes, since I have no idea how to do that! It would also make my art a lot more easy to create. At the other hand, I got used to my technics.

Most likely it would not be a custom brush mini brush, since those brushes are just a trailed image option. Mostly it would be anothe plugin or tool of its own, seeing as how you would have to code it to have a fade out option.

I had a brain fart when I was writing this. I meant to say to increase the jitter in smudge, and it'll fade out pixels like a paint brush. Experimentation is key.
