Japanese Garden - Creative Intrepretations

Give this one a try using Photoshop and Painter IX or whatever package lets your creative juices flow. The photo, my technique, and finished painting are HERE

Painting and drawing tip for for using a Pen Tablet:

I'd like to share with you a tip that has improved my painting and drawing technique greatly. I always found the plastic surface of the pen tablet to be very slippery. This made it difficult to control my pen strokes precisely. My solution is very simple. I cut a piece of copy paper to size and taped it to the drawing surface of my Wacom tablet. The texture of the paper provides a more natural resistance and gives me much more control over my pen strokes and, it doesn't interfere with the operation of the tablet. You will have to replace the paper periodically but this is a small inconvenience.

Try it and see if it helps your technique as it did mine.

i dont know if this is going to come through right or not. had to compress to 48% of original.

this was done with cybia's colour works plugin and a very high contrast/brightness setting.
