How to Customize Brushes in Deep Paint

Since I use Deep Paint in a lot of my art work, I decided that I needed to customize my brushes. I found that this was very easy to do.

Firstly, I created a category called "Paula's Cloning Tools" by left clicking on the top right arrow in the Command Panel. Then I began experimenting with brushes from the other categories. I changed the various settings as I experimented with them. Once I found that I had a setting that I liked, I left  clicked on the  bottom right arrow and executed a "save as" command and renamed the brush. I, also, could have just clicked on "save as" from the Command Panel. After creating the brush, I could move it to a new category in two ways. I could left click on the Command Panel's top right arrow, and choose, "rename category" or I could click on the right bottom arrow and choose "change category. "

When I renamed a brush, I chose a name that would give me an idea as to the purpose of the particular brush. Sometimes I just customized a brush and brought it into my new category keeping the old name; however, usually I changed the name. Since, as I stated previously, I use Deep Paint's cloner a lot, I wanted to create brushes for specific cloner functions. The key to creating a brush is to understand the various functions and options available. For example, the red circled arrow near the brush dimension shows brush shapes. The blue arrow shows three other functions: feather and canvas, jitter, and stroke behavior. Once these functions are understood, creating brushes will become easy. Another function that will change how a brush behaves is found at the bottom of the Command Panel. This function has to do with texture. See the large yellow circle. 

Another setting is used to continue refining the brush. I have circled a tiny "+" mark to the right of the name of the brush. Clicking on this "+" mark opens up a new set of options. In this case the "+" sign is next to the first brush listed in the screen shot of the Command Panel immediately below.

These do not comprise all of the settings, but are the ones that I have found to be the most useful in creating cloners. The last item I customize are the cloner functions themselves.
