Recently I attempted to do a Bob Ross style painting. For the most part I was able to figure out how to translate real world stuff to ArtRage, but one bit gave me some trouble. A technique he uses is 'pushing' the brush in...as in covering the top with paint, then just pushing the top of the brush into the painting. No strokes, no edging, just a push in.

I've been having some issues trying to recreate this, the closest I've pulled off has been a square Brush: Pressure 100%, thinners 25%, loading 13%, aspect 100%, rotation 90%, stiffness 100%. Then I just quickly touch the page as opposed to stroking.

Has anyone come up with a better solution? I've tried teh stickers and havne't found one yet that mimics the effect enough.

Thanks
H

Perhaps if you could attach an image that shows the effect you're after someone here could offer a possible technique?

That probably would be useful, wouldn't it:) Here's a GIF of the method he is using: https://gyazo.com/e5f18209bfc504d9c0435727d1085db4

If that doesn't make much sense, here's the link to the timestamp in the video of when he does it: https://youtu.be/oh5p5f5_-7A?t=6m24s

Thanks, hope that helps:)

There are brushes that would give this effect. Some that come to mind are Someonesane's Sponge Brushes which are great for foliage. Have a look in the Art Supplies section for other resources. You can make your own brushes - there are instructions on how to do that.

Also have a look at the Sticker Spray (Fun Brushes) - some of those work well for foliage.
