Is there some way to make brushes smoother? Sai has a really fluid brush and I want to see if I can recreate it in Photoshop. Right now it looks all...bumpy. Any suggestions?
It looks like it could be a spacing issue. If it is just make the spacing really small (like 2%), if it isn't then make sure your smoothing option is checked off in the brush panel. If you're using a wacom tablet they should also have a pressure sensitivity "curve" feature or something. I don't own a wacom so I don't know for sure but I think I remember seeing around that there is a way to set the pen pressure to your personal preference. Sai also has a stabilizer built in which photoshop does not (which is probably the biggest reason) but I think there was a third party plugin that did the same thing. Link to the third party plugin. I haven't tried it so I don't know how well it works but apparently it's used in zbrush a bit?
I swear one day I'll be good. I swear one day I will be proud of my work. When that day comes, I'll need to kick my ass and try harder.
I agree with StressCavity, turn the spacing down in the brush settings, it's the major reason the standard round brushes in photoshop look bumpy. I personally have very smooth brushes in photoshop, never had a problem with bumpiness after some brush tweaking. If it still doesn't work it is indeed down to your tablet settings.
