    Is this possible?

    I've been using artrage for a few weeks now and really enjoy it. One area that makes it feel less natural for me is how the brush is automatically loaded with every stroke, instead of dipping it into paint and letting it naturally "run out". I see that you can set the amount of load so that it runs out on a single stroke, but is there any way to turn auto-clean off AND have an empty brush until touching paint on the palette? In other words, the brush is clean by default and only gets it's load from being "dirty" in the same manner real painting works?
    The way artrage works by default is like you are handed a new, preloaded brush with every stroke, which feels unnatural to me.
    If someone could help me with this, I would be incredibly grateful. Thank you!

    I just tried turning auto clean off and setting load to 0 to simulate it, but even when I put the paint down super thick, when I make a stroke, it barely has any on it - i.e. it doesn't "pick up" very much paint.

    Try it with a little bit more loading then 0 (try it with 10, and see what happens)

    Sorry for the wrong answer, because I see that you are asking something else.
    I canít give you an answer for that (I donít know if that is possible in ArtRage)

    You can't manually load up a paint brush in the way you describe, only adjust the amount of paint you want for each stroke, using loading. You CAN sort of load your brush by running it through a thick section of paint, which will then be picked up by the brush, but you can't then pick it up and put that paint down elsewhere on the canvas. High Thinners will make a very smooth stroke, low Thinners will make a dry bristly stroke, so if you do want to 'brush out' from existing paint, experiment with the settings a bit.

    You can use that method with autoclean off to get mixed colors, though
