ah, taron is using a tablet, that's why it's blending, he's using pressure as he draws the strokes You can pick up a wacom tablet for pretty cheap, the bamboo start at 100USD and you can find used, refurbished and older tablets for less
in options you can adjust the global pressure input and each brush can be adjusted quickly with space the touch and drag up or down for size, and left or right of strength (only one at a time to prevent making changes to the other by mistake
PS: taron, all your threads are belong to us we hi-jacking this one, hope you don't mind
What the hell guys, can't you have that conversation in your own "How the hell does Taron do it" Thread?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... nah, man, no problem at all! ;D Well, the old version did behave a bit different, but the tablet really makes all the difference. It's virtually impossible to follow my videos with a mouse. And if you do and get something successful out of it, show me and I shall give you some sort of award for stunning excellence, hahahaha... really, mouse is just to click some buttons, not a drawing or sculpting tool, except low-poly stuff, that's where I also still use a mouse (in lightwave).
Intuos2 did it for me for over 10 years, it's fine. I have the intuos3 now and am very happy about it, but frankly, I couldn't tell the difference now, really.
Input for those interested in using a drawing tablet with Sculptris -
The Wacom Bamboo is wonderful. I've been using one for over a year now, costs about the same as a new videogame and you've got something professional and reliable. Only dedicated professional digital artists will gain a noticable benefit from using the higher end tablets by Wacom.
On the subject of tablet size, it's really down to the individual - but remember you need to fit this thing on your desk. Even a Bamboo drives me a little crazy with limited space, as I prefer to switch rapidly between a tablet mouse and keyboard for multitasking chat apps, web surfing and art. Some of the larger Intuos tablets won't even fit on the average desk alongside a monitor and any clutter. Don't assume bigger is better unless you're inclined to huge sweeping strokes when painting. I'm a scribbly artist so I only need a few square inches ^_^
