I know. I think sooner or later I’d have to make changes to the host program to experiment and right now I’m focusing my free time in learning art on my own before I can even make some decent use of the program
Anyway, with my very limited skills in art I’m already having a great time with MyPaint, Krita and Gimp. Keep up the good work guys!
Thank you! I use an Intous Pro medium. More importantly though I think the new color selector thingy I’m working on, and Scott Burns’ subtractive blending mode made this a lot easier. You can read a bit more at http://briendieterle.com and hopefully we’ll get this stuff in MyPaint proper sorta soon :-D.
This page has a lot of information: http://scottburns.us/subtractive-color-mixture/
I jammed Scott Burns’ algorithm into a MyPaint patch that I’ve been working on here: https://github.com/mypaint/libmypaint/pull/109
The two main things is realistic “curved line” color blends, but almost more importantly it changes the way dark and light colors mix so that it is more “linear” and easier to get smooth gradations between colors without wild swings towards dark or light.
Thanks! I think I’ll go ahead and put my brush pack on the website even though a lot of the features I’m using are not available yet. I think they should be pretty functional if you are using an Alpha build of mypaint
Thanks @corumba! Do you have a tilting stylus? If not, you’ll want to erase the “custom” input on the “Angular Offset Side Asc” setting, and re-add the same input (custom) to the “Angular Offset Side” settings. I’m probably going to just maintain 2 versions of each brush, a basic version and a tilt version. The offset settings with “Asc” refers to the direction the stylus is tilting (like a compass), and offsets the dabs to the sides of that (default 90 degrees). Whereas without the “Asc” the offset happens in relation to the “direction” the cursor is moving.
Also, if you have performance issues, reduce the “dabs per xxx” settings slightly.
Yes, I’m using the tilt. I love the “8B pencil” for sketching (and how it ended up looking like a bic pen drawing in small sizes in the 2nd pic above ) and the halftone for some shading, they are great! I’m no artist but am looking forward to drawing something more elaborate with them.
