    [SOLVED] Working with the PAINT ROLLER tool

    Hi

    I would like to have a helping hand here to understand if I am missing something or it is just an issue related to the Paint Roller tool (AR 4.5.10 64 bits)

    As a picture is worth a thousand words, here it is:

    [* Slaithly = Slightly]

    So, let us start with image A: is this a normal behaviour? The paint stroke at the bottom behaves as slightly touching the canvas, so I firstly consider it to be an issue.

    Image C: the same idea of the image A, the bottom stroke image doesn't show the maximum pressure of the pen but a slightly touch of the canvas.
    The colours of A and C are different (I should have used the same colour strokes to all strokes) and comparing settings from A and C they are different as well, but the render strokes are similar!


    I haven't used ArtRage for a long time. I still think I am in need just a bit of information on how to handle with these "issues"

    Thank you in advance!

    Okay, that looks pretty normal to me, so I'll try and explain what's supposed to happen.

    1. Pressure: Your stylus pressure combines with the settings pressure. If you set it to 0% or 100%, there is very little room for variation. If you set it to 50%, it can vary widely around that point. So you'll find it hard to vary the stroke at 0% or 100%.

    2. Paint: the paint roller paint is very realistic, but a bit counter intuitive compared to other brushes. The harder your press with a roller, the more paint is squeezed out from under it, so the less thickly it is applied, the opposite of squeezing paint out of bristles or spreading a brush out for a larger stroke. Imagine having a thick gloop of paint on your thumb and pushing it against some paper - you'd want a light touch instead of a heavy one. Thinners change the paint properties so you can't get a thick buildup of paint on the roller, just a thin smear, so it ends up looking a lot like a high pressure stroke.

    Does that make sense and match what you're seeing?

    Thank you @HannahRage, you really got to the point.
    I will keep in mind those main words that I Quote from you which made a click here. It definitely makes sense to me right now, starting with the PaintRoller be a bit different compared to other brushes



    Thanks for the fast reply.
