John gives a general description of dynamic speckles and particle brush types from a fur tail brushes, to spring fireball, particles firestarter glow, the speckle gravity brush, to silk ribbon brushes. John goes over how each brush works and gives examples in which environments they could be used in corel painter.
- [Voiceover] Painter particle and dynamics speckles categories, represent new types of brushes that utilize phisycal constrains like gravity and acceleration, to control and fluency how how this mark making tools do their thing. With these brushes you can go all the way from traditional looks to out of this world. In this course, we're going to take the out of this world approach and create sci-fi style image that depict a satyr night, over a quite mountain valley town and air twist, an incoming fire ball that sure to ruin this town evenings.
Before we get started though let's take a quick look at this unique, mark making tools. So I'm just going to show you a small sample of these. And I'm gonna begin with the dynamic speckles. And let's just start right here. So this brush, pretty much, does a nice look at the way you can emulate a brush hair as here. And once again I'm gonna talk about right upfront is you can see this very complicated kind of a kasa that's going on, those are showing all of the particles and while it's interesting to look at them, I find that in actually using the brushes it makes this to turn that of.
So one thing I'm gonna ask you to do is to go to preferences, and if you go to interface here, we can switch from the enhance brush goes to simple brush goes that will just give us a simpler appearance on all of this. Now let's go next to Bristols soft cover I'll just select a different color here. And let's see what this one does. Ok so this is another one that does a pretty good simulation of different kind of brush appearances.
I'm not gonna say its the greatest but it does give you another look and yet another use of these speckles, in order to create all of the individual hairs that would appear on a brush. This one is very unusual. This one just kind of creates a really random ragged pattern and some of this you look at them you don't know how you would use them, but after you've seen them eventually sometimes something comes up later on and say owe that one brush does exactly what I want.
A lot of though this brushes are in that category. Now here's one that actually instead of applying a color it just picks up color and this is almost like working with the smeary finger paints. You know it doesn't paint any color it just picks up the color that it finds and does that really kind of a finger paint look to the way the strokes are created. So those are dynamic speckles brushes. Let's switch over to particles and look at a few of these.
Now here's one that, this is where you can really see the affects of things like acceleration and gravity all playing into what makes this brush do what it does, so you get that almost ribbon like character but it's all controlled both by things like barring as well as just how quickly you move the brush will respond to those movements, in kind. Now here's another one, that does some interesting stuff and let's just write my name here.
It's almost like smoke and in this case its colored smoke. But if we just make it white here you'll see how I can get this very, in a smoky appearance. And the fact that we can use it to do something like you know write a name, you can actually read, gives it some interesting possibilities beyond just making abstract marks. Flow Fat Tail two, this is one on those dialogs exactly how you'll always use it but it gives you a very interesting look at how these particles are gonna ejected out of the back of this, and In fact I use this brush, for one of the meteor brushes that you gonna see later on because it does create an interesting kale.
And then let's look at one more here, let's look at the spring fire ball, I actually use this one in the course, and this one provides a really cool way to create, something that appears to have motion to it by that strick behind it, or then we can use it to write our name. So hopefully you've seen in here that these brushes are definitely outside the standard box of brushes. There's really a lot of directions you can take this type of tool. For our course I've designed to set the brushes tuned to aid as in creating the illusion of a meteor heading towards a quite town.
Don't worry though the odds of this happening are well astronomically low.
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.
