    Texture and Blending Brush

    I haven't read completely through the forums, my apologies if I repost a previous idea.

    It has come to my attention, while painting in artrage, that at times I would love a soft blending brush, I know you can use the palette knife for some blending effects, but it pushes the colors around too much. I'm looking for a softer effect. It would also be lovely to have a brush simulating water or gel medium to push the color around with, without adding new color to the painting.

    Other times I've found myself wishing I could add texture, as if I had a sponge or cloth to dab and rub paint with, or perhaps the ability to import black and white images, which would act as a stencil layer, where the area is white the paint could go through, where it was black, not.

    I love artrage, the program is awsome, keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the suggestions! One thing which you might find useful, though I'm not sure it's exactly what you're looking for, is the dry brush. If you set the loaded of the paint brush to 0%, you will find that it can be used to smear and blend paint around without laying down any more pigment. I believe you may be looking for a softer effect but I figured it might be worth mentioning.

    Well, I found this by accident today, if you use glitter then blend it with the felt pen on 100% wetness, it does blend quite well.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the tips... I did know about the dry brush... but the marker as a blending tool I haven't tried.

    Thanks!
