Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Natural tip brushes, part of Using Wacom Tablets with Photoshop.
- So the next item I want to look at…inside of Adobe Photoshop is my natural tip brushes.…Here we have the Portrait.psd file…from our Exercise Files.…What we're going to try and do is create a painting…based on this photograph, and you can see this…as the Portrait layer over in your Layers panel.…First, what we're going to do is…select the Background layer,…add a blank layer, and just leave it sit.…That's where we're going to put our painting.…I'm going to go back over to my Brush tool,…and I'm going to choose a natural tip brush…from my Presets or right-click to choose a brush from here.…
What you're looking for is a brush with a little icon.…These are your natural tip brushes.…Now, with a standard mouse, you'll notice…that this really isn't doing anything for me.…It's just going through, and it's just going up and down.…Instead, when I take my pen tool…and I put it over my tablet, you'll notice that it's…responding to my tilt and to my pen pressure.…If you don't happen to see this palette right here,…this brush preview, or it's in your way,…
