Hey! Such great artwork here. May I ask what settings you smudge on? I have some nice painterly brushes, but I can't get my settings right to achieve the kind of effect you seem to get with your smudging.. But I really like the results, so I'm determined to learn :)

I really loved watching your demos, Sean Parsons is one of my best friends and was nice enough to send me a link. Any chance you would consider doing a demo on creating custom brushes? From what I could see, you have quite the stash.

:+favlove: This is so cool. Seems like a fairly painless technique to use even with a mouse (this tablet I have isn't working for me). Thanks so much for making this!

whenever i use a 35% scattered smudge tool, it tends to bring in the white from around the selected area. Maybe I have the brush wrong. Any ideas?

You just have to be careful around the edges is all.

OK, that is super cool, John. I now have CS3.. custom smudge tool? Holy hell, I am trying that out!

And now I can download your fancy brushes!

Thanks for the video. Can't wait for one with narration.

I'd love to see one that explains how you do that neat grainy texture and such, I love your backgrounds :D

Thanks John I think I learned a few things watching this. I learn better from observation than anything else so watching you colour is better that 10 written tutorials for me. I'll have to try a few things and see if I can improve my skill any.

Just one question are you using the smudge tool to blend or another brush?

:iconjohnrauch:
JohnRauch Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
Thanks Mike! That was the smudge tool with a slightly customized brush.

I think I finally figured out why I couldn't get my stuff to look painted enough, my old computer was too slow to use the smudge effectively, I find I'm getting closer to the look I want now that My new computer can smudge without slowdown or crashing.

Cool! Though it is entirely possible to achieve a painted look without smudging. I don't smudge on every painterly looking book I do. It just depends on what I'm going for.

Very cool dude; it's always cool to see another person's processes. Some people get very secretive with their works, so it's nice to see someone be very open about it.

Now I know I must play with it and make it my friend :)
