Well, to start, I am verrry new at Painter. I am trying to paint some hair on a portrait, so I made a custom brush. Worked fine, just like using an airbrush, only with a bunch of hairlike lines instead of one stream. Of course, I didn't know how to save the brush, so the next time I load the program I need to make another brush. This time I have actually figured out how to save brushes, so I make a bunch of them and put them in a folder called "Hair." I did everything EXACTLY THE SAME as previously, and yet my new brushes don't have an airbrush look at all. They look more like felt pens, where if I apply a lot of pressure, the color is basically black, and if I apply light pressure, the color is lighter, brighter, translucent, but nothing like the color it's supposed to be.
The brush I'm using right now has these settings:
I've tried playing around with those settings, but it doesn't change much (except for opacity, of course). What am I doing wrong?
