Now that I’ve had some time to play with ArtRage 5, I felt it was time to share with you some of the things I’ve learned.  And we’re gonna start with what I feel is probably one of the strongest additions to ArtRage this time around. In Photoshop I would often create my own brushes or download free brushes to create looks that I wanted on a particular piece. You could sort of do the same in ArtRage with the Sticker Spray, but it was a lot less intuitive and felt a whole lot different than the way that Photoshop worked.

The Brush Designer changes all that.

Now you have the ability to create brushes in a similar manner to Photoshop. And it feels every bit as powerful.

The first video takes you into the Brush Head settings. You have to imagine your brush with a tip and with texture. The tip – the shape – has a variety of settings that you control to get the exact feel that you want.  So let’s take a look at that now!


Hi there, Terry here. I love working on the Digital Painter site and making videos and art along with you. When I started this site back in 2014, I had no idea how far it would come, or how much it would change. I have loved every minute of it and wouldn’t trade it for the world. Over the years I have handled all the financial details involved with the website myself.

But now I need your help.

This is a passion and love of mine, so the website will continue to grow as long as I love art and the time to make it happen, but your support can help enhance it.  Stop over to our Patreon page and think about tossing a dollar or two our way.  The money we make goes back into the website, covering hosting fees, website fees, etc. along with allowing us to purchase prizes for the giveaways we do.

Leave Me a Question or Feedback

I’m always happy to hear from you about what I talk about on The Digital Painter Podcast.  So feel free to leave me a message through one of the following ways:
