Chapter 2: Adding Brushes to CSP

In this chapter, you will learn how to create a brush and gain a basic understanding of how to create a brush in CSP, for decoration and general work. This is so that you can focus more on the fun stuff, such as drawing, thinking about composition or the color palette of your piece… or whatever part of the process it is that you like doing.

And as a bonus, as your benevolent/evil lord/teacher, I will give you a little homework for creating and understanding the options of a workhorse brush.

It's always a little bit daunting starting with new software, because you will find a lot of new, strange brushes that you're unfamiliar with. A workhorse brush is just a good, reliable brush that you can use for everything while you learn the basics of the software or drawing in general.

This chapter will cover the following topics:

  • Creating a brush
  • Decoration and texture brushes
  • Workhorse brush
