Oh well, I will just have to keep going with what I have already.

Judi:

I'm adding a technical note so others who might be reading this thread don't get confused:
* Corel Painter is not the the same thing as CorelDraw. They are two different programs.
* CorelDraw Suite (like Microsoft Office) consists of a number of programs, including CorelDraw, Photo-Paint and others. Photo-paint is conceptually similar to Photoshop. Draw is in the same ballpark as Adobe Illustrator. Painter is not part of the CorelDraw Suite.

Late to the party, but let me add my Two thumbs Up! on your interpretation. Very nicely done.

While you're waiting to apply 8.0, download the 8.1 upgrade from Corel.com. Apply the 8.0 and IMMEDIATELY (w/o opening 8.0) apply the upgrade. If you open Painter 8, you will need to uninstall it, reinstall it and then apply 8.1. It's silly, but that's how Corel did it.

Here is one more...

I took my first image back into PhotoShop and used the smudge brush and a regular brush to create the hair as well as add a few more highlights and shadows on the clothes.

Have fun with the download Judi! It's a great program and with version 8 they made the interface more like PhotoShop. You will most likely want to have a tablet to take full advantage of the program though.

Decided to try my hand at this one with Painter. Made a background in Photoshop, render clouds then several Impressionist filters. Opened in Painter, and used the original image as the clone source. Painted clothes first, then hair, then her face and hands, each time using different brushes. Then took the image back into Photoshop, tweaked a bit, and added texture.

This is only the third or fourth image I've done in Painter, any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks T Paul

I have now started looking at tablets. I have found many brands and have found another thread about tablet prices and have asked if there is any comparitable brand to Wacom. I do like the Wacom but wonder if there are any of the others just as good.

There are several threads on tablets on this site, so be sure to use the search engine and check them out.

Here are two to start with:

Here's my creation. Used an outline tutorial by Jay Arraich initially. Very interesting. Made a few changes like using the emboss filter at maxm, find edges, diffuse anisotropic.
