well, you could prolly get some great smudge effects using his toes and maybe some interesting brushstroke effects using his short hair, but .... i better leave it at that

painting with a marine ! ! ! ! ! !
Not only do we have different artistic temperements here but languages as well , Thought Craig had lost the plot when i read the post, where did he get marines from ? then the penny dropped U.S. Marine , over here they are Royal Marines

not a landscape

No not a landscape but more animals, just not fluffy ones, again there are two which i can't make my mind up about but i think it will be down to individual taste, still practicing though,
lots of it to do as well ! ! ! ! !

it's not quite the same effect as on the cat, is it. not as much impact here on the elephants. the grass looks good, but the effect on the elephants themselves seems less than on the cat.

Craig yep the effect isn't the same on the elephants i think it is because it is skin not fur , It's the same thing on people as well but will carry on trying different things see what occurs

palms,

is there a way to blend in more data from the surrounding area when you use the smudge stuff? that is, is there a way to sort of make the brush multicolored by what it picks up as you go? it would be like smudging with a lot of different colors at once.

also, besides it being skin, it may be that the elephants are all more uni-colored. the cat had varying colors in its fur. maybe you could paint the elephants with a rainbow first

Craig

I think the answer to your question is no
I can see where you are coming from though
Grass is like multi tonal and the sky isnt
the grass works yet the sky dosn't

Sorry if this sounds like mumbo jumbo but i cant think of another way of explaining (useless at the written word )

Different brushes help make different effects, but the choice is enormous

palms,

ok. i got it. so, the only way to get that effect would be to add some more tones to the elephant skin and then smudge? maybe a texture effect in a new layer and merge?
