Configuring a Textured Brush Tip


The Brush tool supports two types of brush tips: Solid and Textured. Solid brush tips are plain shapes that can be used to draw vector shapes filled with a solid color, whereas textured brush tips are bitmap images with various shapes and opacity levels that can be used to create natural-looking brush strokes.

Solid brush tips are not customizable. The selection is limited to either a circle, diamond or square-shaped brush tip, the proportions and angle of which can be adjusted. While Harmony also comes bundled with preset textured brush tips, it is also possible to create and use your own textured brush tips.

NOTE It is also possible to use textures when drawing with the Pencil tool. Those textures follow the angle of your pencil lines, which may create more interesting results depending on your desired drawing style. For more information, see About Pencil Line Textures.
