Added on: Sun May 28 2000
Page: 1 3 4 5 6 

Brush category

Painter Classic brushes are divided into categories. Each brush category have several variants of that particular brush.
The brush categories are as follows:

Brush categoryDescription"Good for" (usage tips)Example image
PencilsSimulates real pencils. Grain can be controled. Pencils can only make the color darker (I call this a multiplying tool). You can not use a white pencil on a darker backgroundGood for sketching and for adding dark, thin details (the multiplying makes this tool work almost like a Burn tool)
EraserEraser. Variants include different size and opacity and falloff settingsErasing your errors :-)N/A
Pen Different pens simulating real pens. Some are multiplying, some covering.Good for creating text, for sketching etc. The flat color pen can be used as an eraser. The Scratchboard Rake can be used to create hair.
AirbrushA covering tool with soft falloff. Variants include different size and opacity settings. Also a special Splatter AirbrushThe one and only tool! The Airbrush can be used for anything. Painter's airbrush feels different than in other paint programs. It's very soft and gradual. Creating gradients with it is easy.
ChalkNatural looking chalk simulation. The amount of grain can be controlled.Of course, if you want a 'chalk look' this tool is excelent. Can be used in places where the Airbrush is too smooth. Creates more grainy surfaces than the Airbrush.
