Corel Painter 11: Mastering Brushes takes a deep look into the variety of mark-making tools found within Corel Painter, a software application that allows you to create painterly images that look like they were made with natural (non-computerized) painting media. Through a comprehensive demonstration of different brushes, Corel Painter guru John Derry shows how to adjust multiple variants to achieve desired results. Just like an artist who holds a paintbrush or piece of chalk at a particular angle to create a specific mark, John demonstrates with both live action and within the application how to modify brush variants for maximum expressive impact. From bristle media to ink media, watercolor to utility media, he explains how to get the most out of this drawing and painting application. Exercise files accompany this course.
So you have got two basic methods of brush control in Painter. Which one is better? You've got the Brush Creator, which we are looking at here. I would have to weight the Brush Creator towards new users, because it has this way of being able to whittle down what the actual relevant palettes are is a very good way for a new user to start to learn which palettes work with which kinds of brushes. The other thing that it does very well is it only allows you to open one palette at a time, which we've seen can be problematic, but for the most part it forces you to focus on specific aspects of a brush as you're working.
So as I said Brush Creator, I give the nod to beginner users. However, I would say after working with the Brush Creator for a while the similarity in the way that things are organized and with individual palettes themselves basically are all available and over in the Brush Control palette as well. The advantage here as we saw is being able to have multiple palettes open and being able to work within the same exact space that you are actually painting in.
So the nod for the Brush Control palette goes to the experienced user and for this title I am going to err on the side of using the advanced technique by using the Brush Control palette. The one thing that it lacks, however, is the ability to do a preview stroke and in the next video were going to take a look at how to simulate the same effect while we're working within Painter's primary creation space.
