    wet on wet watercolor effect

    (artrage studio pro required)

    how I simulate a wet on wet watercolor effect:
    I lay some watercolor down with a watercolor brush.
    then use a wet blender palette knife.
    Then use a sticker brush by Juz called Triangular Chaos to simulate the bleeding effect.
    Lastly, I also have an air brush setting with which to add a little extra color in places if desired. here is a link to the presets in an arpack to automatically install them. also a watercolor paper setting.
    here.

    I did not include the sticker preset by Juz, because that isn't mine, but it is available in art supplies or made easy to reach in this post.


    or below are the three presets and the preset by Juz in her grunge set. If you already have Triangular Chaos in her grunge set you won't need that one.

    not perfect, but pretty close I think with a little playing around.

    Wow these look stunning GZ, very effective technique

    Realised that I hadn't put the grunge set up yet and that only the beta team had access to it so here it is for everyone else:

    Hehehe no worries Albert, it's actually my bad, I made all these packs in beta (which were intended to be shared) and then promptly forgot about them while waiting to see if Ambient would host them or whether we needed to host them ourselves.

    Thanks for the reminder

    Hey me too!!! I was floored when I saw your post GZ. I've been working along similar lines for the past month or so just trying to push the watercolor effect with both the watercolor brush and other tools to create deeper believability.

    Here is an example of what I've come up with.

I am totally impressed with what you have come up with there. some seriously beautiful watercolor effects! ah what a pleasure to see these possibilities in the hands of a pro. thanks for sharing. just scrumptious effects.

    Hey GZ, I'll be happy to share when I get a bit further in my R&D process. I'm still at a kind of sloppy stage with the organization of my tools and I have a few more nuts to crack before I'm ready to publish another ArtPack. Thanks for the delightful feedback my friend.

    Hey GZ, I just looked in on Steve B's gallery and he is doing some *very* nice stuff with the watercolor tools. If you haven't seen it you should check it out.
