Wooo, good progress, the only thing I notice in the charcoal brushes is a bit of blur, since the brushes lack more roughness, of course it is obtained depending on the paper that is used, it is normally used on very rough papers but it is something of taste, a good example of charcoal on light paper, it’s grea

Yeah - I thought the same thing. They’re looking great on the whole, but some areas look like they have motion blur - presumably due to the applied pattern.

@daroart37 Thanks mate, In this case i was trying to get a very soft feeling like Newsprint paper. Not good for archival quality but good for training in real life. I also want to create something similar to strathmore 400 series medium grain.

@Mythmaker thanks for comment here too. Yep we have to find a way to organize this better with color smudge blender, is complex to do it really well.

I do admire the lengths you go to in trying to emulate real media - I don’t think many would have the patience.

That said - I’m curious to see what people come up with for your challenge. :slightly_smiling_face:
