Tablet Brush Rotation

Feb 9, 2013 12:02 PM

Hello, I'm using a Wacom tablet to draw using brushes I've created.

 

As a simple example, I have a triangle shape turned into a brush. However, I want the rotation of the triangle to follow my brush stroke, so when I move my pen across the tablet up and down, it follows fine. But when I move it left and right, the triangles are still standing up right and not turning with the direction of my brush.

 

I've messed around with the brush options quite a bit but haven't figured it out.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

    Try "Direction" for Angle Control as shown in screenshot.

    Sure. Just click the button at bottom-right of Brush panel, highlighted below.

    OK, I told you how to save a Brush preset. You want to save a Brush Tool preset so the controls in Options Bar are saved. When the Brush Tool is active and set as you want, click as indicated below.

    In future, you'll be able to load that preset from the list shown by click 1.

    No, a brush tip definition is monochrome. You can save a multicoloured image as a Pattern preset. However, the Clone Stamp Tool with appropriate blending mode is probably what you want.

    I'm not sure without seeing an example of what you want, but try applying the Spatter filter after painting. It only works with the contents of one targeted layer, so, if necessary, do a Shift+Opt+Cmd+E (Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E if Windows) to create a merged layer that can be spatter-filtered.

     

    Here's before and after screenshots.

    Ha! After quitting Photoshop last night, I thought of trying to find a Mixer Brush solution for you but it completely slipped my mind today.
