Photoshop's Mixer Brush

Sun Jun 8, 2014, 6:32 AM
I've been trying for a long time to get Photoshop's Mixer Brush Tool into my workflow, but I end up fighting the tool more often than not. And when you keep fighting a tool, it's better to find something else, right? Don't get me wrong. You can do some pretty cool looking color blending with it. If you enjoy using a painterly style that imitates traditional paint, I would strongly suggest experimenting with it beyond the first few strokes that are all but guaranteed to look like wet turds. It's just the simple smooth color blending that the Mixer Brush isn't particularly good at, compared to, say, PaintTool SAI or Manga Studio. It's a shame, really, because it does have potential.

Fortunately, Adobe has got a forum for adding suggestions for features in Photoshop, so I decided to share my thoughts on how to improve the Mixer Brush there, in hopes that the developers get a better understanding of what digital painters want out of a digital color blending tool.

If you agree with me that the Mixer Brush could use some improvement to make color blending in Photoshop easier, maybe something more akin to PaintTool SAI's color blending, feel free to head on over to my thread on the Photoshop suggestions forum and help increase the visibility of it. It's a bit of a hassle, but If you have an Adobe ID, I hope you'll make use of it to share your thoughts and/or click the +1 button at the bottom of the post to show that you like the idea. And if I failed to mention something important, go ahead and elaborate on it in your reply.

You'll find the thread here: feedback.photoshop.com/photosh…

What are your thoughts on the Mixer Brush as it is now? Do you use it?
