A Short Demo of Emergence

This is a quick demo highlighting the utility of Emergence brushes to quickly sketch diverse textural content.

It’s All About the Grain

Emergence paper grains can exhibit a three dimensional photo-like quality depending on the current grain’s contrast settings.

The chart below provides a sample brushstroke for each of the 35 Emergence seed grains, highlighting the resulting dynamic grained stroke. 2 versions of the chart are provided: black-on-white and it’s inverse. A grain has very different quality depending on its polarity: whether it is positive or negative. This duality is expressed depending whether the artwork is painted on a light or dark background. Taking this duality into consideration, there are actually 70 seed grains!

The image below has been scaled down, resulting in a loss of quality. You can download the full resolution here.
