Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a coloring brush and layers, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- There are some preparations to make…before we can start coloring our drawing…and the first thing is to create a brush…that we can use for coloring.…Now, I will open up the Brush window…and my coloring brush will be based…on my drawing brush.…I will just change some of the brush settings…until I come up with a brush…that is good for coloring.…
Now, for coloring I do not need…an elliptical brush,…a round brush feels better…in that case…so I will just round it up again,…make it 100% round…and I also don't need the Size Jitter…controlled by Pen Pressure.…I actually need no Size Jitter at all…and none of the other Shape Dynamics…so I can just un-check it here.…
And for coloring I need…full control of…the brush opacity…so I will take away the Pen Pressure…from the Flow…and choose it for the Opacity Jitter control instead.…Now we can make our brush bigger…and I will just create a new layer here…for a test run of our brush.…And that looks actually…exactly the way…I imagined it.…
Just create a new tool preset…and I can now use it anytime.…
