  1. Not sure if anyone had this issue – but I noticed when I went to use it nothing was showing up on the canvas. I couldn’t figure out what was going on and looked through each of the brush settings. In the TEXTURE panel, I checked “Invert” and after doing so was able to see the brush strokes. Thought I’d share that, just in case anyone else runs into that. =)

    1. Yvette – did not have the same problem but if you move the Brightness slider just a little to the right (-128) in the Texture section of the Brush Panel, you will lose the stroke. Strokes are pretty sensitive to what Nicholai set them to. The Contrast slider will also change the strength of the stroke. It is a really nice brush!

      1. Nice to hear people like you two are tweaking the brushes. That’s what got me started on this whole adventure. Brushes were never ‘quite’ how I wanted them. It’s also true what you say, I do usually set them ‘just so’ and as a result, changing any setting ever so slightly on certain GrutBrushes can have unintended consequences or sometimes even make your brush disappear completeyly, but maybe it will turn it into your new favourite. Hop into the lab at your own risk!

    2. Thanks for the tip Yvette, I haven’t experienced this with this brush nor heard of it happening. But I do sometimes hear some weird experiences that I can’t explain. I suspect that some of them are due to different tablet drivers. Some people who use Yinova tablets have told me that the brushes can behave quite differently. Anyone else have similar issues I’d love to hear about it. Though it’s so hard to troubleshoot this stuff without actually sitting down at the computer in question itself.
