Digital Painting With Real Brushes

Digital Painting with Camel Hair

Digital painting has always had less of the tactile feel that traditional media. What if you could grab the touch and feel of traditional brushes? Believe it or not there is a group working on this. I came across this info in the first part of November. It hit my google reader again today so I thought I would post about it.

Here is a video (with no sound) from you tube and the informational PDF is attached. The article in the PDF is fasinating, it does get into a little geek speek though. In some areas I was bored or got lost as I am an artist not an engineer, but….worth the read to see what is happening in the field. Additioanlly I have seen this referred to as “fluid paint” and “intu paint”. I am not sure which one is the current name.
