in this tutorial, you'll learn a really spiffy brush effect

User posted image

theres a bunch of stuff you can do with it.

1. open up psp, and make a new image, whatever size, whatever background color. but choose your colors according to your background color. so if you choose a light background color, choose dark colors for your foreground and background colors.

2. press F11. you should see your brush variance pallette. where it says color, choose Oscillating Fade. leave the jitter alone.

scroll down to where it says size, and change that to oscillating fade. leave the jitter alone.

on the bottom, where it says Position Jitter (%), set that to 425.

and dont close it, or press the arrow. just, minimize it or leave it alone.

3. go nuts

some extra tips:

set the background color to a pattern. in the pic i used scanlines and a gradient.

use two colors, like red and black, and radial blur it to get a nice, simple background.

hope this helps!
