How to create a brush category and other notes

Postby willernest » Sat Jun 04, 2016 1:41 pm

The URL below points to a document (Paintstorm Notes V1.0.doc) recording some of my experiments with creating brushes and brush categories using different forms and textures and some additional experiments as I go along. There is a post in the Custom Brushes category that will point you to two collections created as an illustration.

I had asked if this was suitable (since invariably you get a bit of my ignorance and opinion included) and it was OK'd.

I plan to keep updating this now and then and will update here if others find it useful. Apparently already too large to attach.

Hi Willernest !

I wanted to thank you for the efforts you put on the very well done document and also on the brushes.
Very very kind to share !!
I will try to share brushes of mine but i still have to tweak them to be really useful...
Cheers Mate !!

If you find an .png file image can't you just save it as .pstbrushes???

No, you should capture this as a brush form

This is a great guide. Thank you for creating it. :-) I'm not at creating brushes yet, but it's great to understand more about them and know that this guide is here for later.

I had an idea ... would a Paintstorm Studio wiki be a good idea? Just wondered if someone more online and tech and connected than myself would think this might be a good thing to do ... not pushing you to at all; just had this idea reading your post, plus I had difficulties opening the file (needed to find something to open doc files in the windows store, as I just use wordpad on Windows 8.1; a bit zen about things), An online wiki would be directly readable and, with people pooling whatever they learn, could save those involved time too? It could also make composing a manual much easier later, or many more people could just easily access the wiki directly instead. Just an idea, and sorry I wouldn't be able to add much myself; learning the (wonderful in PSS) basics, but really not about technical programs like photoshop, so am using PSS very intuitively.

Really not sure what goes into doing a wiki, but I've just seen this, which says it's an easy way: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/34248/ho ... gle-sites/

I used to do wiki work. Funny you guys bring that up. I was just beginning to map out how I would format a manual for paintstorm. I wasnt sure how well it would go over, or if folks were even interested.

Let me know what you think.

PS: Please ignore the typing errors and duplicate entries, this is a sample draft of how I would like to present the material.

All the best,

Armor

Wow, that's excellent! Like willernest's, well written, easy to understand, and nice layout. :-) I've learnt new things already, reading it.
