New brush with texture has a low quality

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I have create this brush in Pixel persona using a square brush and adding a texture that I have created using symbols in vector personal. I could not add an SVG as texture so I added an PNG. The problem is that is looks very pix-elated. Looks really bad. I tried to make the texture bigger, smaller, played with zoom but it still looks bad.

Do you have any idea what I should to to make it look batter?

Can you attach that image?


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Which symbol?

The brush icon in the layers panel.

If I do that it makes the bricks really big. If I resize the brush the bricks remain the same size, only the painting area is changing. If I scale it to get the bricks the size I want I get the same result.

Hi,

I believe that the issue is the size of the actual image that you are trying to make the 'pattern'/ brush from. When you open it each area (rectangle is incredibly small). To get this kind of pattern you just need to create a valid tessellation in a rectangle...

Create a rectangle inside a symbol and build a simpler pattern in the rectangle Then use that as the repeat.This is how you can test whether the pattern repeats correctly.

I have never created a brush with an image this size...Most of my pattern brushes are only 200x200px square rectangles. For higher resolution I have created some at 400 x 400px output with a 800x800 px build (300 dpi)...but you could use 400dpi for quality...

The rectangles in the pattern are very small!

Try creating something much simpler...:)

I don´t get it: Is it a brush (which category: Intensity/round/square/texture?) or a Symbol and why are the edges softened??

It's a square brush with the bricks pattern image used as the brush's base texture, and the base texture scaling has been changed to something other than the default 100%, which results in ugly resampling of the base texture.

When it´s a square brush size has no influence of the pattern just the amount of painted at the same time - no?

Yes, but there is a scaling slider in the controls for the base texture, that is independent of the brush scaling.

This is exactly what I did.

Even if I leave it at the default 100% it still doesn't look good.

OK!
What size is the output image for the png?

Looks to be 100% for Scaling of texture..is that correct....?

1024 px +size of the mesh=very small even at 100%..going to have a play!:)

With base texture scaling at 100%, your painted pattern now looks identical to the PNG used as the base texture.

If you want a less obviously pixelated result, you will need to work with a higher dpi document and base texture image for the brush.
