Brush Texture?

Does anyone have suggestions, sample projects, or ideas for emulating the brush texture of an oil painting?

i'm not sure what kind of look you're going for, but that sounds extremely difficult to create.
what exactly is the situation? are you trying to do it to a costume, pen, the stage?
i feel like you'd need to figure out some shortcut for your specific situation or if it's a costume, do it in some image editing program.

Maybe stamping a costume with texture with a ghost effect to add some transparency ?

I don’t have an example, but I think it’s an interesting question; I’m looking forward to suggestions as well.

dk whats an oil painting
wouldn't it be smelly and catch fire?

Oil paintings are so called because the paint on them is a special paint called oil paint. This is not the kind of oil that is smelly and catches fire (at least it’s not the oil you’re thinking of.) It’s very long lasting (more so than acrylic). There are lots of very famous oil paintings.

oh ok



I think that it is likely that someone on the forum might identify ways to emulate the effect of paint on a canvas. (This sounds like the type of art project that Jagda might potentially create, for example.) Here's a neat project that @loucheman developed that resembles paint flowing down a canvas:

Developing a technique to emulate brush strokes would likely be useful in any number of art applications. However, we would also be interested in other techniques that might be used to emulate a physical painting.

This project floods stage with stamp of the single oil stroke image created in Paint or from search engine ("oil").

The effect of the "water*" costume looks more like water coloring or crayon over cardboard.

I found a few papers with formal, procedural approach

Also there are tutorials for the custom brush pattern for Photoshop or Gimp. The algorithm is driven by 10 or more attributes.

@dardoro The paint brush project that you shared is lovely, and just the sort of thing that I had been hoping for.

The Princeton paper that you shared, in particular, is interesting and accessible. Thanks for sharing!

i made some changes, a lighter effect and much less white/black streaking

quick project here

it's an idea...

Press the green flag and press the button on the mouse when the mouse is on the stage. You can also change the color...

Wow, it now looks like really thick paint or even strand of a wool/fabric.
Maybe with some tweaks this can work as a sort of relief sculpture.

For me it looks like felt-tip pen drawing. Even with the over-soaking .effect...

I added an eraser that you can switch to by pressing the space bar. I also changed the step size so that the eraser moves faster.

I added a little feature with a Change Color variable that when non-zero, changes the brush color to change continuously as the mouse is held down, the higher the value, the larger the color change.

I added a new texture to dardoro's paintbrush to help emulate works by Jackson Pollock. This could be expanded to help make a design for this weeks module in our class.

I tried to make an ombre background! I really like how easy it was to blend the colors out.

I made a small change from revised version, instead of having one color, I added in a color palette variable to create various color stamps.

This is the effect I was going for

Here is my modified code and I wanted to have a changing color brush
