This weeks brush is the SKN MXR. It's a soft mixer brush wich produces a smooth pore texture at low pressures but is also able to blend smoothly at higher pressures. It is ideal for adding soft gradations to objects.
This one is another approach on texturing strokes. The PENCIL-WITH-A-PENCIL is not really exactly brush - its a versatile texture stamp. I've created a just tiny repeating pattern (lead on paper/scanning/post processing/create seamless) hence we use it as a stroke. The upside is that the outcome looks exactly like the desired texture with the applied brush dynamics. The downside is that -because you basically apply a texture- you are bound to the color of the texture. In this case it makes sense but I won't work with all media styles. Well, just try it out.
