    I only want one thing. Big, thick, gloopy, dense impasto paint that looks like it might fall off the canvas from the weight. I want brush strokes so heavy that the bristles leave trenches you could fall into. I want paint you could frost a cake with. I want light and shadows, and I want it to still look good on a big canvas. I want it to mix and spread like the real thing ( the paint, not the frosting - but maybe if you could make it taste like the frosting ...) Was that one thing ?

    Sounds good to me Jamison, but maybe only with real paints? Maybe there is a way to make the digital paint do all that but I don't know how. I have seen some digital art that did have a thick gloopy look to it, but would not know where that was at this late stage.

    Without advertising the competition, there are a couple programs that do a pretty good job with this. I always drag stuff out of TB to paint my heavier brush stroke stuff, and then bring it back in for finishing. I can get some nice effects and detail with TB brushes, but no thick paint that I've been able to find. I've got tons of software, but TB is my home base. If it had this one feature, I could see myself doing a lot more work start to finish in it.

    That would be great to see you do your work entirely in TB Jamison. Maybe Ken will one day come up with your dream come true. :) All the best for that.

    That looks like it has some potential. I'd like to give that one a try. Thanks for the help !

    Hi things to note it uses col 3 and 4 so be aware how you choose.those cols... two tones of the same col for true col .......although completely different cols mix well to give cool cols.
    the brush is based on basic wet and soft round.....but go through the options available and experiment with them and with brush shape...gel pen gives a dense paint for example
    oils /medium messy bristle on wet and brush shape large grain sparse is interesting shows more bristle shape
    it's a starting point at worst
