SpeedyPainter v3.5.8 – smooth selection

SpeedyPainter v3.5.8 features an improved selection tool. Finally the tool produces smooth selections, this resolves a great limitation of the selection tool in previous version, in which selected area exhibited very jagged borders.

Here is another example:

SpeedyPainter v3.5.7 – improved rounded brush/ink preset rendering

round brush rendering comparison between versions v3.5.6 and v3.5.7

Finally solved some annoying artefacts that occurred using the round brush, especially with small brush size and with size that varies accordingly to pressure sensitivity, like in the “ink” preset. Linearts produced with SpeedyPainter are now more clean and display a smoother size transition according to pressure.

SpeedyPainter experiments – brushstroke elevation

Doing some experiments for simulating elevation of brushstrokes and the texture of the canvas.
This feature is still a work in progress, I hope to add it soon in next releases of SpeedyPainter.
In this demo I used some Amazing brushes from various popular brush sets, from various amazing artists, like:
. Maciej Kuciara (https://www.artstation.com/artist/maciej)
. Wang Li (http://wawa3761.deviantart.com/)
. Houston Sharp (http://houstonsharp.deviantart.com/)
. Jan Ditlev (https://www.artstation.com/artist/ditlev)
. Jamshed Jurabaev (http://jamajurabaev.com/)
To use those brushes in SpeedyPainter you can use an useful free tool called AbrMate (http://www.texturemate.com/abrMate). Just open the “.abr” brush set in AbrMate, export the brushes as “.png” images, and put them in the “SpeedyPainter/data/brushes” folder.

Work in progress: basic animations with SpeedyPainter

Simple test of a new ‘work in progress’ feature I’m planning to add on SpeedyPainter: the possibility to create simple frame-by-frame animations. The feature is still in its early stages, quite experimental for now, I hope to provide more updates soon 🙂
