Creating Texture Brushes

To create your own texture brush, you must prepare your tiled texture file in a third-party software, such as Adobe Photoshop. If your image has transparency in it, it will be supported. The texture file must be either a .PSD or .TGA file.

It is recommended that you maintain your texture resolution between 100 x 100 pixels and 400 x 400 pixels.

To create a texture brush:

1. In the Tools toolbar, select the Brush tool or press [Alt]+[B].
2. In the Texture section, select the Select Texture option.
3. Click the Folder button and browse for a bitmap texture file.

4. In the Tool Properties view, click the New Brush button to add a new brush to your list.
The colour of your texture will not be used. Instead, the dark and light areas will be used to determine the alpha in your texture. The current colour swatch will be used in conjunction with the pattern and alpha in your texture.
5. In the Camera or Drawing view, draw some lines and adjust the parameters to fit the style you are looking for.
