Weekly Download: Studio Artist Presets, Series 2

75 displacement effects and time particles By Dave Nagel
As with all things Studio Artist, I started off this collection of presets in one direction and found myself following another, winding up with a wide variety of somewhat indefinable brushes that can be roughly termed "displacement effects." The collection--Nagel Series 2 Paint Patches--includes a whopping 75 brushes, ranging from simple interactive pens to autodraw brushes to 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.
