Random grain rotation
Nothing screams pixel automation like uniformity, and in a painting that is rarely a good thing. Painter 2018 offers improvements to its grain
technology that boosts both brush and paper randomization. The new Random Grain Rotation and Random Grain Position options vary the paper grain a wee tad with each stroke, making your brushstrokes look more random.
After choosing a grainy brush, just enable random grain rotation and/or grain position, and Painter will rotate the grain in each individual stroke to achieve a more natural look. The settings can be applied to any brush with a grain setting. No additional skill is needed to perform this operation, but this feature will boost the quality of any artwork more easily than artists could do in the past.
The Random Grain Rotation and Random Grain Position checkboxes provide an easy way to make your paintings look more natural
