I' m not sure if it's my computer or if it just suppose to be like that but when I use alpha with the paint brush it always turns out kind of blochy. it works quite well when I use alpha with the different shape and line drawers

please tell me if this is suppose to happen and if it's not, how to fix it. Thanks :D

Noooo! Never use Overwrite... ever! Unless the situation calls for. But in this case, it doesn't.

Follow these steps:

1. Create a new layer

2. Make your brush strokes in full opacity (no alpha)

3. Go to Layer Properties and adjust the layer's Opacity from there

It's the easiest (and almost the only) way to make perfect alpha valued brush strokes in Paint.NET.

thankyou usedHONDA ^^ but I can't use this method because I mainly draw on Paint and I want to use alpha for shading :)

What do you mean? You can do it that way, it would work just fine. Unless I'm misunderstanding...

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
