Introducing Paint Brushes

13 April 2020

One of the things I have always wanted Brush Ninja to be is fun. Software is often quite business like and boring, and so I thought I would try to introduce some interesting new brushes to create with.

Like the other shapes these brushes are vector based, which means you can scale and rotate them without losing any quality.

You can see a video of them in action below.

This change means the eraser tool has been retired. If you don’t like a brush stroke you can delete it and try again. Or you could rotate and scale it until it fits what you want.

As seen in the drawing tools demoed last week you can also change the colours of all the brushes after they have been drawn. It can all be adjusted.

This is all part of Brush Ninja version 2. I don’t know when it will be finished but if you would like to try the in development test version then subscribe to my Patreon for $1 a month and get regular updates so you can try the new version before anyone else.

Modifying Objects Properties
