Beautiful painting DJ.

I have Painter 7 but I don't know what to do with it.

Are you using a step by step instruction book to learn the program?

Thank you Sharon. No instruction book but I did find this site for some real good online tutorails. You get the first 3 chapters free to check out. Check out this thread page for more information. I took the full course and was totally impressed with all I learned. For the cost vs what you get I think it's well worth it. Plus when you consider how much you paid for Painter and don't use is because you can't find good tutorals on it.

DJ....WOW! That's a very impressive first attempt! You are quite the multi-talented lady. I love it all, the detailed sailboats, the soft clouds and of course the amazing grass. You have to love PS7's dynamic brushes! They just make you go wow...NEAT! Painter looks like a very fun program too. I have been enjoying viewing Greg's work and I hope your thread encourages more people to play.

Sharon,
You're welcome. Hope you can get some good pointers out of it.

Hydia,
Thank you so much for the nice comments. I am suprised it turned out that well considering the trouble I had learning to paint with digital brushes. It's so completly different than actual paint. But it was fun.

T,
Your comments are very incouraging. Thanks alot. I think next time I play around I will start on a larger canvas incase I end up liking it. It would be nice to incourage others to give some of these painting programs a whirl. What I like best is I don't have to clean the brushes and palettes when I'm done.
DJ

Not having to clean the brushes or having to wait until the paint dries to continue working on a piece makes the digital way the fun way to go!

My biggest problem with digital painting is unlearning the way real paint works. Alot of what occured in this picture I realize was accidental and I played on those accidents. What I'd like to achieve is intentional brush strokes not accidental ones. It's a whole lot better looking at a finished work of art saying "Yes, I've achieved my goal" as opposed to saying " Holy Cow, how'd that happen?" I'm at the Holy Cow stage.

Felt my ears burning, so I bopped on over. For those who really want to learn Painter well, there are books, called Wow Book, and they are great. I have th P6 wow.
They retail for about $50. I got mine thru Powells Books on line for $42, as a damaged item(a small wrinkle on the cover) These are very popular in the CG community.
They also have one's for PS. It's as good as any class you'll find.
Thanks for the nice talk behind my back, not used to it.

Another book?

Fugitive, thanks for the WOW book tip for Painter. But I haven't even made it through HALF of the manual that comes with the program...I still don't even know what it CAN do let alone learn advanced techniques. I feel overwhelmed by this program, and wish I knew enough to start learning, if you know what I mean. How long did it take you to get comfortable with Painter?
