A whopping 173 MB for dots must be doing something right. Noticeable various amongst the brushes and randomization within each one makes for a compelling reason to buy these just like I did. An old JR High art buddy from decades showed me a stipple example last week of a fisherman’s gloved hand grabbing a tarpon by the mouth. He meticulously placed each dot to build up his beautiful shading, but what kept him back from finishing this peace was unadulterated time to allow him to concentrate and push through to completion. How about the same meticulous detail to build up shading in just a few minutes? That’s exactly what’s possible here, with the additional freedom to experiment non-destructively. I eagerly purchased Stipple Studio and am intrigued by the nuanced effects and also by the helpful tutorial that gave me strategies I would not have thought up on my own.
