Thread: Fan Brush

  1. #1

    Fan Brush

    If someone familiar with brush creation could make a fan brush that is rotatable, that would be great.
    I have a program called "Project Dogwaffle" that contains a fan brush that I got to be able to set the angle.
    Problem is: there's very limited documentation, and there are a million settings and adjustments for everything, that it
    would take a lifetime to learn.
    It's fun to play with, but very hard to do any serious painting.
    Learning to manipulate the very sophisticated program gets in the way of creativity.
    I could download the fan brush in .tga format if anyone could adapt it into ArtRage.

    Is it a bitmap brush? Go ahead and post it, along with an example of what it's stroke would appear like in the other program. I'll try to replicate it.

    Apparently I spoke too soon. There are hundreds of brushes and I got the effect I was after only once and I forgot which brush it was. The one called "fan" isn't it.
    I'm showing a list of all the brushes available, but as I said there are too many and the documentation doesn't say how to import or load them.
    Most of the custom ones are in Particles and these are .opt files (they call them octopustics).
    Sorry I spoke too soon.
    As you can see on the left under Howler there are many brush sets beside the ones called brush sets.

    Okay, well if nothing else, we know they're bitmap brush tips. Do you have an example (either of your own, or from an online source) of what you'd like the brush stroke to look like when used?

    Well they're not all .bmp. If we save a custom brush, it gets the Targa suffix.
    Also some are .opt suffix and some are .lua suffix.
    I did, however find the brush I wanted. It's in a category called Bristles.
    If you look in the upper right of the inset panel, you will see a circle with a tiny circle inside.
    That adjusts the angle of the brush.
    The reason me (and I've noticed at least one other user) want the fan brush is that we
    learned to paint evergreens from Bob Ross using one.
    I am attaching a file that will make it more clear.
    BTW there is a free and also a very cheap Edition of Project Dogwaffle at:

    Okay, here's what I came up with. I set up presets that are set at 15 intervals, starting from 0 and ending at 165. There's also two "Freestyle" presets that have unique qualities to them. The .arpack containing what you'll need to use them with the Sticker Spray tool, can be downloaded here:

    Here's a screen shot of a few strokes, made by the different presets:

    When I click on the dropbox link I get "404 file not found"
    Typo maybe?
    BTW: the swatches in the inset box are for various amounts and loading of the brush

    It appears to work on my end. Try right clicking on it, and selecting "Save as" (or "Save Link as", depending on your browser).

    I'm afraid I won't be able to mimic loading. The brushes are set up to use brush pressure though, so the lighter you press, the more transparent the stroke will be.
