When I paint textures, I like to use my special custom brushes that have a certain amount of hue, saturation, and brightness variations built in. This gives a more natural look, especially to solid color objects. Without these variations, the objects tend to look flat, computer generated, or fake. The following steps create one of the brushes I use often.
You can make a custom brush from one of the existing presets.
Give some space to your stroke, so it’s not a solid line.
The size jitter, spacing, and scattering break up the stroke so it looks less uniform.
This ensures that the variations you add don’t look as mechanical, since the brushstroke’s size variation masks any color pattern.
This is what gives an organic effect to your brush
The goal is to have a setting that doesn’t create a calico bright and multicolored) effect, but subtly varies the color enough that it doesn’t seem flat.
You lose all your settings unless you make a point to save your brush as a new tool preset.
Now take a look at how this particular brush makes a difference in a finished render. Notice in how flat the solid colors look in the left image? See how much more natural the right image looks? The only differences between the two are the color maps.
The left has solid painted color maps. The right is the same but with color maps that were painted with your brush.
You’ll be amazed at the variety of uses you can find for this brush—and this is just the tip of the iceberg! You can scan a leaf and create a leaf brush or make a fish brush or produce a brush that paints cats’ paw prints over everything.
