HI and welcome cazzie, your images are a bit too small for us to see them properly so can you repost them ( if you need any help look here http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/ima...ed-images.html
)

from the little i can see it looks as if you are of to a flying start with painter

Re: First time go at Corel painter

I love the dog and the treatment you have him/her. Even the dog's expression says to me, "Hey, I'm just slightly frazzled today. And don't mention the hair. It's just a bad hair day."

Wonderful smudge job.

Welcome to RTP,

Janet

Hi Cazzie... Welcome aboard. Great job for first time with Painter.

For portrait-type pics (animal, people) you might consider replacing the background with a neutral pattern or isolate the subject somehow. Doing so results in less distraction.

Re: First time go at Corel painter

Oh you did a wonderful painting. Not way over the top, just right. Is this the Painter X version? It sounds as hard or harder than Photoshop, I'm told. I am looking for something far easier & mild. The program Corel 4 (?) I'm not sure, tutorials seem to do it all for you in like three steps or such without your own input or control and comes out looking all alike. Am I right on this? Are there any other programs out there for what I'm looking for?

Painter 11 was just released. There's a demo at Corel's website.
