Brush ovelapping (build up)

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I was wondering if there was a way to turn off the function that when you do a brush stroke say at 40% opacity and if you stroke again after lifting the pen off the tablet it becomes darker. In other words, what can I do so that can do multiple strokes at an opacity less than 100% without being affected?

 

I hope that made sense. Thanks!

No, sorry mate, it doesn't work that way.

You literally should NEVER be using a brush opacity of 40%.  Show me what you're working on.

I do it on anything in general... mainly dodge and burn, but also Nik tools, cloning, etc. I know it is not the most effective way but I don't know any other way LOL

If you need a layer to be at exactly 40% opacity, you mask it at 100% then lower the layer opacity.

And then make another mask on top of it like this?

So, what would the proper procedure be?

You need to tell me exactly what you're aiming to achieve, and I'll tell you how to do it.

The best way to explain it I guess is to paint using any brush at a set opacity without getting affected when I let go from the mouse button or pen and continue...

 

Or visually, I don't wan brush strokes to look like in the photo... I'm sure you see the overlapping strokes, I don't want that.

Yes, I know, I already told you.  You do it at 100%, then lower the opacity  of the whole layer.  Or, in the Masks panel, lower the Density slider of the mask.

I need you to tell me exactly what you're trying to achieve with a specific photo.
