Step-by-step: Use a sten­cil to cre­ate pre­cise brush strokes

ImagineFX - - Imaginenation Artist Q & A -

1 Open the Ex­plore the Mask­ing, Snap­ping, and Sym­me­try op­tions (Friskets) lo­cated on the left side of the Sketch­able workspace. The icon looks like a tri­an­gle over­lap­ping a ruler. A panel opens with Sym­me­try, Mask, Sten­cil, and Grid op­tions. Choose Sten­cil.

2 An­other panel opens show­ing Sten­cil op­tions. Turn the Eye icon on so that the Sten­cil is vis­i­ble. It will be a blue colour. The de­fault Sten­cil is a line with con­trol points at the top, mid­dle and bot­tom. You can click the con­trol points to trans­form the sten­cil.

3 Click the Shape Se­lec­tion icon and se­lect a dif­fer­ent shape. The Sten­cil up­dates to the cho­sen shape. Click the Sten­cil Ges­tures (pad­lock icon), choose a brush, and now you’re able to paint a pre­cise stroke that’s con­strained to your cho­sen Sten­cil.
