How to achieve the same effect like "Art History Brush Tool" from photoshop

Recommended Posts

hello :)

I tried to achieve the same effect as in the given video, where use "Art history brush tool" in photoshop. I would like to get exactly the same effect in affinity photo. Is it possible ? I lost a lot of time trying on my own and failed to achieve such an effect. If anyone can do it I would appreciate your help.

Not yet possible with one tool only...

I'm not a big fan of these effects... But... I want to help in any case... 😜

You could try stacking multiple layers and using the Paint Mixer Brush with no colour


I suggest you to try with a Dust and Scratches effect and Unsharp Mask to simplify the picture and emphasise edges


Then stack up other layers (duplicating) and start messing around with a suitable brush (Shame on me... here I'm using one of my Blockers included in Pigmento Set... 😬)


And go on using smaller sizes... Maybe some Curves adjustment could help contrast


Not the same as PS we're almost there...
