Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

I use a tablet. It took me a little while to get used to at first, but now I can't imagine painting without one. Good work can be done with a mouse, but I think it is much much harder. There are brush settings that only a tablet can take advantage of, that make digital art easier.
But this is just my 2cents worth.

Hi George

Yes i use a tablet as well, for me its definitely much easier.
For me its a bit like painting with a brush (tablet) compared to painting with a cake of soap (mouse).
Once you are used to a tablet you will never look back, i'm sure you will be able to do Pikers tutorial with a mouse, it may just take a bit longer

George, I use a tablet, going back to a mouse seems almost impossible.

George, I've been using a tablet for about 3 weeks and now wonder what I ever did without one.It's so easy to use and great for smudging and using the AHB.

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Boo-Hoo-hoo! Now I want a tablet !
I just can't justify the cost for only playing on RetouchPRO for the fun of it!

Maybe later.... still thinking on it...

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Vitaly, I have always enjoyed your watercolors, you choice of subjects and composition is as important as your technique. I allways learn something when I look at your work on FLICKR.... believe me I think I have seen every image you have posted and can recognize your work almost every time.

thank you for sharing your technique... and tools I have tried to recreate your method, big suprise for me was the sharpening you do, that was missing from what I was doing.

Peter

Thank you amica for the image.

I use a tablet for 3 years.
The work is much harder without tablet.

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

I added a few new steps (54-62) in the tutorial.
What do you think about this?
Is there another solution?

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Vitaly- thank you for the additions to your tutorial.
I was able to follow it, but I have a few questions.

On step 55, glowing edges, what settings do you use? Or what look are we trying to get? (lots of lines, just a few big lines?)
On step 56, I think you need to add Desaturate.
On step 62, after you add the layer mask, I think you click once with the brush?
Do you offset this as well?
When I got to step 62 I couldn't get it to look like yours.
I hope my questions make sense.
thanks!
