hey you guys I wanted to show you how I make brushes in rh6 using a custom brush designer now today's brushes are gonna be made only using stuff that's in ArtRage already so anyone watching this video should be able to make these brushes exactly as well as I've made them or better so let's get started um what I did first was I just made a canvas let me show you if I go to resize the canvas you can see that the canvas is a thousand by a thousand pixels just
00:31
72 pixels per inch and that's just kind of a nice easy little square that's going to be easy to import into the brush palette when I when I'm setting up my stamps I'll tell you what stamp means in a second but just check this out before I started today's video I made a couple different brush surfaces that I think could be kind of fun to play with so here's five different brushes let's look at this one I usually go to view canvas setting and
01:02
because I'm an oil painter but at heart I'm painter by training I like to set my my canvas up to have this essential canvas that's that it's kind of bumpy looks like real canvas feel right and I like to make my brushes with that canvas because what it does is it gives their a little bit of chunky texture to the brush stamp and what we're making here is a stamp so this is going to act like the digital brush head that gets spread
01:31
across the virtual surface making the pigment spread using this particular texture to do that spread of the pigment so I like that to have some texture to it so that's why I set up my canvas to be an essential canvas now let's see what that looks like in practice so I'm gonna make a new layer so I have a different layer for every single one of these brushes now it doesn't really matter what brush you use or what tool you use to make this brush you just want to kind of
02:05
get in the end to an interesting outcome right an outcome that say wow that kind of looks like a real brush and so I know that if I use the oil brush it has a pretty realistic bristle effect and I can pull in both directions from that center of my stroke and I can get a really nice looking realistic mark right so this is pretty basic pretty nice and I'm going
02:37
to interrupt the middle of that with a palette knife stroke just to kind of make it a little more interesting then I'm gonna get my glue pen and let's see simple this darker color and just add even more of that kind of rough texture around the edges like that and I think that might be all I need to do I'm gonna create a little more chaos here with the
03:08
palette knife I like using this one that's kind of like a frost distortion pallet knife in it you don't just give me some kind of crazy edges there which is what I want when I have some variety explore stuff right so I like that and let's go ahead and move on but before we do what I need to do this is pretty important because do you see how any let me get a smaller tool so you can see areas over here you can see some of the three-dimensionality of the brush stroke
03:38
and even this grain of the other canvas all of those things are going to be interpreted by the software as part of the brush head so when I say all of those values that are not pure white are going to be interpreted as part of the brush head what that will look like is this part of the brush will be nice and dark but these areas become a very soft gray so you won't really get a crisp mark here your mark will kind of have a fog of value around it even though it's gonna be really light it's gonna kind of mess things up so what we want to do is
04:08
go back to view and we go to canvas settings which we already have opened up here something close it show you go you canvass settings and then you can change that back to maybe the let's go back to just basic paper and it takes away all of that kind of crazy cool texture that was going on I can even just take the lighting off which watch this so I can go back to canvas central canvas and can just turn campus lighting
04:41
off and what that does is that helps you see what the mark would look like without all of that interpretive stuff going on around it yeah it also gives me a good clue that I need to mask this out it's interesting to see that that essential canvas doesn't really use a pure white background but it uses is this kind of creamy tan I'm just out canvas texture so now there's that right now so I've cleaned that up I just use the oil paint here's one super cool I
05:12
can you turn the the lighting back on you can see all that three-dimensional brush stroking but turning canvas lighting off kind of gets you back to a place where the software looks a lot like almost every other digital painting software so here's kind of the magic of our age is seeing that three-dimensional canvas you can just pop that on and off pretty cool so that layer looks good that layer looks pretty good I just want to keep I want to make sure to keep any
05:43
of the brush stroke away from the edge because I want my stamp not to have any super artificial edges to it I want it to kind of look like a real brushstroke so by that I just don't want any of my brushstroke to touch the edge of my canvas then so that's about what's fine that one's really good let's get back up to that layer I'm just kind of cleaning up anything that's like like I said that fog of not pure white I need it to be
06:13
kind of pure white or it's gonna be part of my brush strokes clean that one up now it's fine back on the right layer here just clean that tiny bit up up there yeah that was fine and then this one this one's great so all right I think we're good to go let's go ahead and see how this works see if our theory is a good one I'm gonna
06:46
export this as a PNG and I'm just gonna call it brush test one to see it call this fine brush test to save and I like to do a bunch of these at one time because it saves time you should get a better idea of what works and what doesn't I definitely because I don't have a lot of free time in my life have to kind of work a little more haphazardly sometimes
07:18
but but I also wanted to you know I could have sat down and made just a perfectly easy wonderful little demo here without any surprise but what fun would that be I want to make sure that you guys are seeing this happen just in the same way it would be for you is you're just kind of saying hey let's see what works let's try some stuff and go from there well I kind of like the ones that have will come back if we need any more but so I'm gonna leave this I'm
07:51
just going to save it and I save this project file as my brush test file it's an art rage file so I can always come back to it add to it change it whatever and now I'm gonna go file new and we're just going to use the window size basically my screen size canvas now here we go if I go to the custom brush here and I turn the settings on you kind of have a pasady loading green etc if we got a brush designer what I
08:23
can do is load the brush head from the desktop and I'm gonna go pick one of these guys let's try that newest one we made and then if I demo that brush here it's not really doing much that's because I have white paint selected right to change it back and it looks nothing really like that it's what I need to do is invert that brush head and now it starts to look a little bit more
08:55
like the brush that I created interesting pretty cool brush it looks a little bit like if you leave your you know an old brush and you didn't clean it properly Netcom looks like it's like a half brush half shovel that's what it looks like so let's see what some of our other ones did oops my load brush again let's grab brush test number two and actually I may be back interesting okay
09:25
so this one very very different so not bad let's try one more number five yeah so not bad so that's kind of how to make a brush head the grain you can select from the collection you can you can really put anything in as the grain like you can use canvas you can even use
10:10
brush heads as the grain and it changes things quite a bit notice how the grain has had a really dramatic effect on the brush head so kind of fun stuff I'm just gonna say okay for now just so we can try one of these out wow that's interesting [Music] I don't really know what that resembles in realistic you know in traditional painting but it is a pretty interesting brush I want to kind of go back and just
10:47
go to one of my normal canvas textures now this grain is literally just a download from one of those free to use texture sites and look how different the brush is now the grain is really different and even if I invert it it's really interesting
11:18
alright let's change the brush head one more time and go back to the desktop and this time I'm gonna try this newest brush we just made again and I want to see oh so this stuff I didn't teams I didn't invert it back so if I invert it so it looks like it should now it works like a real brush I really like that brush I think that looks pretty cool and has some interesting things going on with it if we go all the way over here you can see that the color variation is one and
11:49
the luminance variation is four and that's why I mean I don't know if you'll be able to see this but that's why there are these kind of rainbow effects in there then there's a bunch of settings in here which are all pretty self-explanatory and then a bunch of settings in here that are also pretty self-explanatory [Music] but I really like it I think that that was a good experiment and let's just try this one more time we go back to a little brush heads here's some more of the brushes that we created pretty good let's try that one whoops
12:40
we got to invert it again remember the black parts gonna be the mark-making parts you gotta make sure to invert it yeah good brush looks like a real brush really behaves like a real brush look at that wonderful brush and that is a tool made with with default tools in art rage and it performs as well if not better than a lot of the built-in ones so let's look at this in detail if I go into the
13:11
Settings tab spacing this is how far apart each stamp from the brush is gonna be right so if I separate it out the kind of a staccato mark I've put it at zero then there's one continuous stroke just like you would get the normal brush jitter is gonna vary the spacing so there's a little randomness there the follow stroke just means it's gonna follow it rotation jitter is interesting if I have rotation turned on it the
13:42
brush stamp spins like a bicycle wheel if I have it set to zero and it just is like a normal stroke and then there's no rotation it just follows the mark the other kind of direction of the mark grain size is like how large or small the screen is and how it influences the brush head and then you have taper and opacity opacity just means house how opaque it is you know if you have it down to zero somebody transparent and
14:13
then you know yours opaque and there's everything in the middle you can play with how pressure affects things or how much loading the brush has or the grain amount so we can jam the you know a bunch more grain into it and it's gonna looks kind of speckled so I kind of like leaving it down here I almost always keep smoothing off because I don't like how it disrupts the stroke so if I see the mark I'm making in the market that is left are very different smoothing is great if you need
14:45
to do something very designee and everything has to be very very very kind of perfect and in like there's no what wobbles in your stroke make already stroke my are mark making but I don't really prefer that so I usually keep that at zero and then you can play a thrust set if you want to color pick up means that if you have let's say didn't grab the right code let's say you have
15:16
this bright blue and every color pick up set to 100 and then I choose like red or something then it's gonna make purple right just by the interaction of these two paints they're just gonna kind of naturally blend with each other that's color pickup it effectively is like wet on wet painting color pickup set down here it's very different because it's gonna happen as the paint's getting interact but not to the same degree right so here's me pushing hard
15:46
you can still see some interaction even if the color pick up it's up to three percent but it's just not quite the same so color refresh color pick up luminance is going to vary the brightness but color variation is gonna give you a little variety in the color that you selected stuff those are both good I like to give them a little bounce there so let's say okay and let's play with our new brush and let's play with it on a different canvas we can see it a
16:17
little bit more clear so let's change this to sort of your default paper just let the brushwork really stand out yeah that's that's awesome I really like that brush so that's a brush made from scratch in ArtRage using just the basic tools in our trays to create it it has a really nice mark a really realistic market looks a lot like a filbert you know those are you guys that are oil painters or acrylic painters or watercolor so you guys know what a filbert is it's that brush that kind has
16:57
the end of the brush looks a little bit like your thumb would look really I would look it has a kind of a taper on the edges depending on pressure it can be more of a flat or a filbert so it's kind of this with brushes sort of in-between there but either way I really like it I can see myself doing a painting with this and that's sort of a quick and dirty breakdown of how to do brush making an art rage and I think you know I think we've got some good stuff this brush designer is getting more and more functional the performance is
17:28
getting better and better and you can see that this paint quality is unrivaled by any of the other software's out there right now on mobile or on desktop this is the most naturalistic painting you can get on a desk you know on a computer it feels like real paint guys give it a shot check out the comments check out the subscribe check out patreon check out all that stuff if you want me to make a brush pack and you're just like hey that's cool thanks for showing me but I don't want to build my own brushes
17:59
if you want me to release some brushes let me know in the comments and I'll be happy to do that if you want more detail than bring the regular tips on this let me know if you want to see me through a whole painting with this brush and or set of brushes I just made and kind of see you know how that goes let me know - thanks again and best wishes guys take care
