Cool Mixer Brush Technique in PS

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 27, 2013, 5:34 PM
I learned a cool technique for the mixer brush from Mathias Verhasselt, a senior cinematic artist at Blizzard. It's great for adding detail really quickly, or speeding up your workflow with certain tasks, so I made this  video to show you some ways you might be able to use it. Enjoy!

This is amazing! Thanks so much for this hint! I'm not sure how I can really put it into my style (maybe hair?), but it'll be fun to experiment!

What shortcut key did you use to sample the sphere? Im using Windows 7 but when I use the clonestamp tool it doesn't work with the mixer brush I tried using the S key but it doesn't work

You use ALT, just like with the normal brush, the clonestamp isn't a part of the process, it just behaves in a somewhat similar fashion.

Since I'm going to start to TRY my hand better at backgrounds, this is helpful. You said it's good for speeding up painting, but it seems also good to use when an artist isn't too great at maintaining shadows and lighting consistently through out a portion of their artwork. I can see how this would help give a general idea for helping me with that. Thanks for the tips! Added them to my handy-dandy helpful journal folder. :3

My gods that is a really cool and amazing technique - painting is not what it used to be anymore with these techniques!  If learned to use well this is gonna change things and save a whole lot of time for any kind of digital art, even web comic artists.  Thanks for sharing with us so soon after you just learned it!
