    Vector Assets:Camouflage II

    That's OK!...I added them to the forum for them to be used/edited....There will be some more leaves!...
  2. Just have to wait and see what Affinity have planned!...True vector would be nice!...
  3. I was surprised initially that they are not true vector...but I am sure it will be addressed at some point in the future... However. I find them really useful for sketching and outlining (inking)...especially when you can simply raster the result with a single key-press...
  4. OK! I added a tutorial some time ago on 'Creating Vector Brushes'..it should help you. There seemed to be a lot of brushes around set to >2000px but I didn't think it was necessary..The inkbrush Sets 'Render' | 'Linear' | 'Render Texture' are mostly 500px wide. I Set up a template to process both output sizes but the 500px width is certainly adequate. I am pleased it's not raster brushes..that is a big world for me!...I have another document similar to the one above for Raster Brushes but it needs updating (as of 1.7 update with sub-nozzles)...and picked up a couple of extra techniques!

    Thanks!..I hope you find them useful...but ....I am still working on this project!
  6. Hi, Good question! Really depends on what type of brush you are creating...'vector' or raster.. This is a bit subjective having completed a few of brushes.... If you are planning a number of brushes.. a. Put a template together that allows you to export slices at different sizes b. Build the nozzles as vector (then they can be used as vector textures for drawings!) and tends to give you a 'cleaner' output with greater flexibility. Vector [500 - 1000 px] x [n-height]* png + 300dpi + adjust output settings to reduce file size. *height being dependant on the type and function of the brush Raster I tend to ignore icon size convention and just initiate: 100 | 200 px | 400px* (nozzle and base textures) .png + setting adustments *400px can be used but I do not believe it is necessary for most brushes. Base textures at 400px are useful if you are going to re-import as a repeat fill pattern Most of the brushes I completed have nozzles of 200px. A 100px nozzle is useful when creating 'small' brushes i.e. fine liners or pencil brushes or nozzles that have limited patterning like a couple of 'dots/blobs' of 'ink' . They also react a bit faster with a tablet..but not so useful when scaling up. A 200px nozzle will give you more flexibility when scaling the brush (keys)..I do this all the time! Size can be scaled down for pencil like effects or upwards..even above 200px

    No problem it's good to see someone else developing brushes I put together some techniques for creating vector brushes in the tutorial section....you may have it..but here is the link anyway: Creating Vector Brushes

    That's a difficult one. The distribution of the pattern on the stroke/fill can be controlled using select: Fill/Stroke then Experimenting with the 'extend' options on the context bar. If you want something more consistent/repetitive... turn on the 'maintain fill aspect ratio'... and adjust the fill nodes...it does not give you complete control but worth looking at to see if the patterning gets closer to what you are looking for.. The stretched appearance is a result of the setting in the brush editing panel Body: Stretch | Repeat toggles + adjusting the head + tail offsets... With Stretch selected the area between the 2 red lines (offsets) gets stretched With Repeat selected the area between the 2 lines (offsets) repeats Can require a lot of experimentation...I tend let the brushes stretch...but really it's just down to preference....

    I think it needs more variation in the leaves!....

    Thank you for sharing. Looking good...The cross hatch one is my favourite!..Wish I had thought of that.... I have a couple of suggestions which would add a bit of additional functionality to the brushes.... A. If you activate the opacity slider (30-60%)[+Pressure] you can add to the 'variation' on the brush using the context menu and setting the controller to 'pressure'... B. When you build them test with blend modes and opacity...just to see what results you get

    Thanks for your comment!...I still have some work to do on this asset set yet!....its W.I.P. I added the colour versions to the original drawing here I just stripped out all the details...
