I really like your second one Legacy. The first one is good but the second one just really looks like a painting to me.

Unlurking

I suppose one of the reasons I've lurked so long without posting is because I don't take as good notes as everyone else does--ie, I don't always remember what I did. Anyway...

Wonderful Sidis. I LOVE your style. And now I have to have a good laugh. hahahahah....notes.....hahahahah. What are they? Notes? Who me? Not me. I'm way to involved in the creative process to take notes. That's why I almost always use screenshots.

Keep up the good work.

Janet

This thread deserves another trip to the top...

Here's a Painter8 digital watercolor. The background was hand painted with the finer mop brush. Caterina was cloned mostly with the fine tip brush (trying a bit of Jaykita's method). I didn't like the texture I got in her skin, so I smoothed it out with the 'just-add-water' blender. I did most of the fly-away hair by hand to keep the background in tact. This started with a 2B pencil sketch outline (traced by hand) toned way down in the final result. I like painting/cloning with the pencil outline as a reference. The tracing paper function makes it too hard to see what you're doing in many cases. This one turned out good enough to frame, so I did that too.

Mark:

You sure are making GREAT strides with Painter. This one is a standout.

I know what you mean about Painter's Tracing Paper function. I prefer the flexibility of a duplicated layer which I can turn on/off and tweak opacity.

Keep 'em coming. You're getting nothing but better.

I was looking for a good image to practice oil painting on and found this cute little girl. I love the work that has been done on her by everyone. I used Painter and the various oil cloners and brushes. I did quite a bit of editing and color adjustments in PS before I painted, and also the texture.

I especially like the texture work you did on this one, Cathy. Nicely done.

Thanks Danny. I have made some custom texture that are a combination of canvas and paint strokes. I also like the textures that you use. Do you make your own?

I haven't ventured into do-it-myself textures. I pretty much stick with ones included with Photoshop, Painter and ones Trimoon has graciously made available for download at his site, www.Trimoon.com.

I often use Painter's "Grainy Blender" brushes to which I apply a little Unsharp Mask to give the effect a little more personality. On occasion I apply the canvas effect via the Alian Skin "Splat" plugin, too.
