Smudge Photos Into Paintings
While the brushes in our pack are a testament to the finest oil painting techniques, they've been meticulously crafted to excel as Smudge tool brushes. These brushes are exceptional for integrating photos into your artwork, commonly referred to as "photobashing". To infuse a painterly touch into your images, simply employ these brushes with the Smudge tool and watch as the magic unfolds.
Some tips for photo smudging:
- Begin Small: Start with a precise brush like the Fine Line Smudger. It allows you to simplify small areas of color/value while retaining vital details.
- Simplify, Don't Blur: Aim to streamline your image without resorting to blurring.
- Lift and Shift: Always lift your pen when transitioning to a new tone.
- Centralized Approach: Initiate your smudging from the core of the tones you're streamlining. For instance, to amplify a subtle white highlight, touch your pen to its center and delicately diffuse the pigment.
- Expressive Edges: For a painterly aura, grant your subjects dynamic edges using either the eraser tool or the smudge tool. The Double Line Rake and Quad Line Rake are exceptional for this, as well as the Broad Flat Painter.
- Break the Monotony: Facing vast flat areas of color? Utilize the Analog Paint Noise brush, sample a marginally lighter shade, and scumble in a painterly texture to introduce diversity.
- Liquify to Enhance: The liquify tool is a game-changer! In the Liquify tool, the "Edge" mode is perfect for reintroducing clarity to lines. Meanwhile, the Push and Twirl functions are excellent for imparting a fluidic aura.
Procreate 5 is here, and its amazing! You can now install a LOT of brushes at once using the new Files app in iOS 11. We recommend backing up your purchase using an iCloud account (its free), or syncing them to Files with iTunes.
First things first... USE SAFARI on iPad!
Also make sure you open the link in the full Safari app (it must be Safari, no other browser will work), as the side-loaded one that gmail/other email apps use won’t work.
Note: Brush files end in *.brushset
Once you click the file name/download button, a blue arrow in a circle should appear in the top right corner of Safari. This is the "downloads" area. Tap this icon and you should see your download appear in a list like so:
Simply tap the file and it should automatically open in Procreate. Depending on if you've performed this before, it may ask you what you want to do with the file after tapping it, in which case you would simply find the Procreate icon and send it there.
