Weekly Download: Studio Artist Presets, Series 275 displacement effects and time particles
Now, I created this set in an attempt to generate paint patches that could displace paint according to the direction of your stroke, and I used a variety of techniques to accomplish that. I'll be covering these techniques in my new series (launched today) on the Studio Artist Paint Synthesizer. I've also included in a separate directory a collection of time particle brushes, which are used for creating animated brush strokes. As no matter of coincidence, our first installation of the Studio Artist Paint Synthesizer series begins with an explanation of time particles and includes some of the brushes in this collection.
A link to the patches and instructions for using them appears on the next page. (Detailed instructions for working with Time Particles is also found in today's tutorial on Time Particles. You can access this by clicking on the Tutorials button in the left menu or at the top of this page.) First, a limited sampling of what you get.
The Paint Patches
The Paint Patches in this collection are fairly varied. What they all have in common is their directionality, meaning that they apply themselves inside or outside the angle of your stroke, depending on the direction of your stroke. They're all also alpha-enabled for use on transparent layers. And, of course, they're all fully customizable with hundreds of parameters, or useable as-is. Here are some samples.
