Weekly Download: Painter Brushes, Series 1

25 wet and gooey brushes for Corel Painter 8 By Dave Nagel
In our never-ending quest to cram you hard drives full of free software, we expand our efforts this week into the realm of addons for Corel Painter 8. Our first library in the series includes custom brushes for Painter, a collection of thick and creamy strokes designed to create impasto effects, as well as a few other types of brushes. There are 25 brushes total in our first collection. Read on for samples and download and installation instructions.

The brushes
Our series of brushes for this week represents my first experimental efforts at crafting custom brushes for Painter, and, as such, includes a fairly wide range of brush types that follow no particular theme. These include several impasto-style brushes that are thick and textured, usually offering some sort of bristle effect to create strokes that appear to have ridges. Most also include plow characteristics for interacting with other paint strokes on the canvas. There are also some brushes that use the buildup characteristic for creating a deep paint effect. All of the brushes use custom image-based nibs and, of course, can be altered to suit your needs. The nibs are in general fairly large, and you should be able to work with them at diameters greater than 100 pixels without experiencing aliasing problems.

This time around, rather than just giving you a sampling of the brushes, I've decided to show you all of them. Most of the examples below use one or two strokes, though not always at the default size.

Now go on to the next page for download and installation instructions. Or visit our archive to view all of our previous downloads from the previous year for applications like Studio Artist, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, Creature House Expression and others.
