Tiny tips: Blending in by Ranarh Tiny tips: Blending in by Ranarh
Blending has to be thoroughly learned, because realism will not work without. I often ruined my paintings with using giant blenders on minutiate detail, or smooth blenders on surfaces that should be textured. You can save lots of time if you use a brush that's easy to blend in the first place. Also, blending can be done in several passes - painting roughly, blending, painting details, blending again.

"Ranarh's tiny tips" is a collection of iddy-biddy tutorials, each containing small bites of advice anyone can chew, aimed at beginner's level artists. They are not software-dependent. If there's a problem you have, something you feel someone should finally explain, or are just curious what I have to say on a particular artistic issue, feel free to tell me.


You'll find the whole Tiny Tips Collection, plus some full-grown walkthroughs in my tutorial section. Check out my blog and website for exclusive tutorials, walkthroughs, and tips.

I had a (perhaps dumb) question that I noted you with. Definitely some useful stuff here, thanks for putting this up.

Thanks for that tip, I've been using standard blender brushes on heavily textured brush strokes without even thinking about it. Tried this tip and big difference.

I'm glad it helped. I found that blending can be quite difficult altogether.
