Studio Artist: Paint Patches, Series 12

20 drip and splatter paint brushes and reveals By Dave Nagel
Not too long ago I wrote about a technique in Synthetik Studio Artist for creating write-on and paint-on effects for motion graphics. In that tutorial, I used some custom brushes to reveal underlying footage as if it were dripping down or splattering across the canvas, and I also showed you some methods of splattering paint around the canvas. Now I've expanded the brushes used in that tutorial and present them as this week's free download.

The brushes
Our collection of Studio Artist Paint Patches this week includes 20 brushes designed to splatter and drip, revealing a source image, scattering the contents of your canvas and otherwise applying liquid strokes to your artwork. The presets fall into three primary categories: blow pens, which scatter the paint on your canvas; reveals, which reveal your source footage (for creating transitions); and drip paints. (If you need some tips for using these brushes for creating your own motion graphics, you can find my previous tutorial on this topic here.)


Here are some examples from this week's collection (Nagel Series 12 Paint Patches).

Nagel Series 12-Drip 8

These brushes are designed to work only with Studio Artist 3.0. They won't function properly in previous versions. They can all be modified by path pressure and pen tilt, and many also include other interactive modifiers. Of course, all of these can be customized further in Studio Artist' Paint Synthesizer to suit your needs.

Now go on to the next page for download, installation and usage instructions. You can also view all of our previous downloads for applications like Studio Artist, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, Corel Painter, Creature House Expression and others in our Features Archive.
