I want to note - the best result is when you use a tablet, but not the mouse. My instrument is tuned to pen pressure.
Thank you Vitaly, that is a great example of the step by step.
Do you want to post your finished example on its own?
Thanks again for all your inspiration and support

I see that Vitaly already posted a sample of his work with Amica's photo.
But you could also look at any of the images he has posted here at RTP, and practice with the original images to try to get similar results yourself.

Vitaly- thanks for the sample image, perfect to go along with your tutorial!

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

You are good students!!

And another pic tips.
1. contrasting edges must be balanced
2. few distort sketch (hand made illusion)
3. watercolor should be bright
3. add sharpen layer (compare 3 and 4 pictures)

You need to download winrar utility to open rar archives.
I was able to load the brushes on my work pc, but can't do it here at home?
I downloaded Winrar, extracted to and cann't bring anything up in PS3
Anyone else having trouble?
Thanks,
Deb

I managed to download the brushes etc, but I found the paper files (watercolor001.jpeg, etc) to be very small, something like only 25kb, did anyone else experience this?

Thank you Vitaly, Fantastic tutorial and nice work

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

I'm grateful, don't get me wrong, but that's of course what I did. It's not working. Like I said it worked just fine in other pc but not mine here at home?
I'll keep trying...
