Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Painter: Painting with Particle Brushes.
- [Voiceover] If you are a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. However, I've also provided a custom brush category file that anyone can download. The exercise files are broken down into chapters. Any content associated with the chapter, will be found in the appropriate chapter folder. If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. If you're viewing this course on a mobile device, a set-top device, or your membership doesn't provide access to the exercise files, that's OK.
You can still follow along by watching how I use the files or alternatively, using your own content. Now let's get started.
You will learn what particles look like and how they are generated, and how to use the brush controls, Opacity slider, Shape attributes, and Color Variability and blending palette to influence the appearance of your brushstrokes. John demonstrates all these concepts using a nondestructive, layer-based workflow and a sci-fi-inspired painting of the night sky, featuring the Milky Way.
