Colored Cocker

I have played around with digital painting. But since I found this section, man this is fun!!
I haven't done a whole lot, just a few. I don't know about painting, so I don't know what type this would be called, but I really enjoyed it.

What do you all think? Am I doing this right?
It would be cool to see some idea's ya'll come up with too if you wish. I'll link the original for those who wish to play.

I left his eyes, and the right side of the picture non painted. I tried to kind of fade the painting to normal.

Re: Colored Cocker

Rohape! Welcome to RTP. You're off to a great start! Wonderful image to work on. Thank you!

I don't have much patience when it comes to smudging so I take the easy way and do it in Liquify. Added sharpening, some High Pass, Bas Relief and other stuff.

Here's my version.

Re: Colored Cocker

Oh wow Swampy! It looks like the kind of painting where the paint is real thick and you use like a little mortar tool to shape the paint. (told you I didn't know much about painting) How cool!
I know as much as the puffy clouds...that Bob guy who used to paint on TV.

Thank you for the welcome!
I look forward to all the fun!

I'm also working on some restoration work, which is how I found this site. I have the pleasure of restoring some old photos, one as old as 1912!!

Re: Colored Cocker

Thank you, Rohape.

I just can't get into restoration or retouching. I find it very tedious and at my age I can foregoe the tedium... LOL

Re: Colored Cocker

Amen to that, Rohape. There are so many neat things you can do in CS3. The only thing I miss is BUZZ. I run PS in Rosetta mode (Mac) just to have it handy.

Holy cow 0lBaldy!! That is awesome!

Swampy: Not too sure what your talking about. I made a huge leap from 5.0 and PSPP X2, to CS3.
