Creating Texture Brushes

To create your own texture brush, you must prepare your 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 your own texture brush:

1. In the Tools toolbar, select the Brush tool or press [Alt] + [B].
2. In the Tool Properties view, click the New Brush button to add a new brush to your list.

In the Texture section, select the Enable Texture option.

3. Click the Texture File button and browse for your bitmap texture file.
The image colour will not be used, only the pattern in it.

4. In the Camera view, draw some lines and adjust the parameters to fit the style you are looking for. Note: your pen list will be automatically saved.
