Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

I tried again, with more confidence than yesterday and very different results. Yes, I see...there's lots of room for play here.

This is Grayson, the cat of a friend. The original photo she sent me was really jumbled up, background very messy and I needed to clear up a lot of distraction.

Thanks again, Vitaly.

ps: unable to open your brushes. Is it necessary to download another application? I'd really rather not.

Just an idea, maybe if you want to post the original photo of the cat (or another photo), and we can all have a go using Vitaly's great tutorial.

It will be interesting to see how many variations we can all come up with using the same instructions and brushes.

Nice work Dan and Amica.
I'm having my first practise run on your building Amica with Vitalys tutorial, but i can't seem to get past step 9, when we go to use the art history brush for the first time after taking our snapshot, it just dosn't seem to paint?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I don't have the numbered steps in mind, but I simplyfied the dub, created a blank layer filled with white added another blank layer and made a snapshot then of the simplyfied dup. See if it works, if not..come back

Sponge03, Thank you!
I used the first 17 steps and then I have only a simplified sketch layer and texture, S/H, USM and H/S.
