iPad Video Tutorial – iColorama Settings: Continuous Brushing by Jerry Jobe

Share

The latest release of iColorama, in addition to adding some Bristle brushes that are amazing, added several new settings. I explained one new setting, Continuous Brushing, as best as I could on the iColorama Facebook group. Some people, however, are visual learners, so I put together this short seven-minute video to show the before-and-after effect of using the Continuous Brush setting.

The video also shows the box which pops up when the “Warning when leaving a brush” switch is on.

Here’s a screen shot of the new settings, found under iColorama in the Settings app.

One setting that I don’t illustrate in the video is “Variable color by stroke”. I recommend you turn it on. As shown in the image below, when it is off, and the Color Variation slider is increased on a brush, the color changes as you are making a single stroke. When you turn it on, the color remains the same during a single stroke, and only varies when you raise your finger/stylus and start another stroke. I think the new method is much more useful.

Here’s the final image from the video. Enjoy the Bristle brushes!

Never content with just scratching the surface of what an app can do, Jerry Jobe decided to pass on what he learned about imaging apps to others. He’s constantly trying to figure out just what tools other artists have used, and trying to incorporate them into his own work, in an attempt to find his style.
He’s written tutorials on over 145 apps so far, which you can find (along with his Song of the Day entries) at http://enthusiasmnoted.wordpress.com/
He lives near Atlanta, Georgia, where he also finds a creative outlet in acting and directing in community theater.

Great video, Jerry! iColorama is daunting in the learning curve; your segmenting and chunking of the steps helps tremendously!
