Today’s post will describe an approach you can take to tighten up a paint preset. By tighten, we mean make it generate a more realistic representation of the source image, as opposed to generating a loose abstracted painting style.
Today’s post discusses how to work with the Path Angle control panel in the paint synthesizer to adjust paint stroke path orientation in relationship to the source image orientation. Depending on whether auto-painting tries to track the source orientation or draw perpendicular to it can dramatically change the visual appearance of the final painted output.
Today’s post continues our recent discussion of some different approaches to building wet paint effects. Today’s post takes a look at a paint preset that simulates painting on top of a wet paper towel. This produces a very soft diffuse wet colored paint backing effect.
Today’s post is more of an introduction into a specific approach to building a wet paint effect in the paint synthesizer, as opposed to a tutorial on building a specific finished visual effect. The image above just shows a few wet spreading paint strokes drawn using today’s paint preset. Today’s paint preset works best for…
Today’s post shows how to use a single vector paint preset to build up a simple but interesting paint style. We’ll show how the paint preset was built, and gain some insight into the underlying paint strategy defined by the paint synthesizer programing used to build up the final image.
