Fabric brush

Postby maninmachine » 10 Oct 2013, 04:30

Purpose:
Primary - various fabrics ranging from dense to threadbare, fine to coarse. Secondary - works as a shader and an 8-bit style block stacker.

Parameters and behavior schemes:
Does not require stylus.
Random color, value, scales.
The rotation parameter has something I saved as "Stacker". The shape initially turns to follow your stroke but very quickly becomes stuck. This is useful as an on-the-fly constant direction controller. Helps maintain the manufactured look of fabrics, and makes block stacking easier.

Comments on use:
For coarse fabrics use higher opacity, fine fabrics use lower opacity. Density is controlled by stroke concentration. Changing the magnitude of the negative and positive boundaries for the value slider will change the thread shade variation. Try turning on a gradient for weird effects (can pretty easily do those multi-color weaves). For a sharp variance (plaid, cyber) effect try changing the value behavior scheme to random -> multiply (x) -> floor, where X is some number greater than 1. The lower you go with X, the more the value will tend towards the lower boundary and vice versa.

Hope you like it. :eek:

To moderators: Would you prefer if I condensed my brush submissions into one thread? This is my first time on a forum, and I don't mean to clutter.

Here's an example of the stacker behavior scheme:

The left hand side is the start. Notice how it rotates at first then becomes stuck even as the stroke direction changes.

Here's an example of the cyber (high variance with green and black) effect:

Congratulation for your brushes and your explanations :yeah:

Please don't condense your submissions because there is the preview of your creation.
I think it is easier to see all brushes like that but later why not to open a MIM Workshop!

Just one little thing, could you forget the [ ] for your file name because each time I donwload your brushes to test it I need to change your name "Fabric %5BMIM%5D.bkbrush" ;)

Thank you

Thank you for the kind replies. I apologize for the naming issue; I'll leave off the brackets in all future submissions. I really don't want to discourage submissions of variations of a brush archetype, and I realized I wasn't being very creative with my naming conventions. Name tags are the easiest route for me. A workshop sounds fun! And I'll try to upload the presets of those samples at some point soon. :)

Edit: Here are the samples. I noticed a weird effect with the stacker that it will tend towards the rotation of a previous stroke at the start. Clicking and not drawing anything seems to clear that result. I guess that makes it easier to do gradually rotating stacks.
