Brush Help?

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 28, 2011, 2:54 AM

Stuff I Say

I really want to make a photoshop brush that gets a fine point when I press hard and a broad stroke with less pressure.  From what I've tried, you can only make a brush that has a fine point with less pressure and a fat stroke with more pressure.  Maybe I am completely missing something.  I'm running photoshopCS3, anyone have a possible solution?

You should check out Corel or so, I am pretty sure that function exist among all that brushes.

Oh man, if only there was a brush like this for Photoshop. If you find one, or if there's a plugin or something, be sure to update the journal with it. :)

Sometimes I just wish there was a Painter brush plugin/patch for Photoshop.

I did find a way to make brushes do that in Painter. But nothing for Photoshop yet. :/

If you find one do share. Right now I switch between 2 brush sizes when I do my lifedrawing studies and I'm so used to whirling the little wheel to shrink it up/down it doesn't stall my workflow too much. It's the best solution I've found so far.

Too bad there wasn't simply a checkmark for "invert behaviour" on brush options :/

You're looking for a reversed pressure system. Currently isn't implemented in Photoshop.

Though thinking of it... a brush like this [link] may be a good route for now. Not what you're really wanting but it's a start I think. You may need to fiddle around with the direction/angle.

Hm... I believe Painter has an option like that, but Photoshop? I don't think so.

i don't think you can make a brush like that, since PS brushes imitate real art tools, and i don't think anything real acts like that...

Conte crayon and all manner of charcoal acts similar to this if used properly. I only want a brush like this so i can replicate the experience of figure drawing with real tools.
