I've been looking at the possibilities of TBP, wondering whether it supports pressure pen, and whether it has lots of things like elements or what would normally be referred to as tubes incorporated in it too? Or is it strictly a painting program? (I downloaded the basic free version and that's all that is of course, but it looks as though it could be incredibly complicated to use, particularly the Pro version? Also I didn't find the pressure pen support very effective?)

By the way I love this painting; the only thing is I feel the outlines of the birds are just a little bit too smooth for the feathers to look truly realistic. (Hope you don't mind me saying that? :heart:)

Hi Anna!

Oh no....I understand what you are saying in regards to the smoothness of the bird's feathers. I was actually trying new brushes and techniques when painting this...(playing around :roll:). I've been using Twisted Brush since 2005 and I guess I grew "into" it. I use my tablet/pen with no problems. I would definitely try the full Pro version to demo though...because of the endless possible brushes, art tools, and clip art to use (no tubes). Incorporated one can also do small fractal work, use layers, masking and endless filters. I guess I can rattle on, because I simply enjoy using this program (Art Rage would be my no. 2)!

Here is the forum and gallery of Pixarra / Twisted Brush Pro Studio:

Simple blog using TB and AR (ArtRage): [link]

If you have visited the site, there are many members ready to come to your aid and tutorials. It's a matter of using and playing with the program....(it won't break!). Thank you so much for the interest and trying the program Anna!!

Kind regards,
Syl

Oh this is great - thanks so much for getting back to me! I've bookmarked all those links and looked at your gallery there - just wonderful, you're very good! The only thing is I can't read the print on the tutorials as it's so small on my screen.

Just one question, and that is, are there any brushes that will use two or more colours at the same time? (I hope you understand what I mean by that...) Just that when I used to do oil painting I often did this with very interesting effects. I looked further at the Open Studio last night and discovered much, much more that I hadn't seen before, but yes, I think the next step is to download the trial version of Pro.

Until now I have always used PaintShop Pro, but unfortunately Corel have destroyed the original Jasc version which finished with version 8 and was a proper painting program which I loved. It's only now any good for photo work, and I have the latest version of it (13), but it has become pretty useless for me in any artistic sense. Version 8 doesn't work on Vista! :( That's the program I grew up with since I went digital, so it's difficult to break away from what is familiar to me, but I just have to do it if I want to do any more actual digital art outside of fractal art.

How big do you have your working canvas (in pixels or inches) on the screen? And what resolution do you use (72 dpi, 96 dpi, 150, 300...) - for print size obviously 300 dpi is best, but uses such a lot of memory. Just wondering :)

You're welcome Anna....I'm also glad you will try the new version.
I know what you are asking about taking two colors on a brush. I have not seen such a brush yet in TB. I say "yet" because the administrator is always working to better his program.

A friend had given me PSP and I've even tried Painter, however as good as other artists are at using these programs, I think I'm too comfortable using TB and AR. Btw, have you ever tried the ArtRage Studio 3? It does a fantastic job of simulating using real oils, chalk and watercolor.

I use 300 dpi, but my canvas is small. When I first started digital painting, I never thought of selling and I use my art for personal gifts or self indulgence. I just enjoy and get "lost" in painting. :)

That's really the best way to do art, just for your own enjoyment, then there are no heartaches or disappointments if it isn't appreciated or bought.

I haven't got around to doing anything more about the program - have been too busy, but have every intention of doing so soon. I haven't tried ArtRage.

Hi Anna...forgot to mention that members use TB as a photomanipulation program also....it's got cloners, etc.

(Lol...guess I could "go on forever"!)

Have a great day!
