For "T"

"T",

Nice work on both of your works.

Your work is what I'm striving to learn, can you recommend some tutorials to get me started?

Question Here's my first try.

Great image to work with! I kept it simple, just got rid of the distracting background and applied a sepia tone to the image, plus added some enhancements to the total image. Thanks for looking.

Welcome, Art_uro (clever login name):

You did just fine (upload-wise). What I can see of what you did, yours is a good one. We just have to work on the sizing.

File size must be less than 100 KB.

Keep resolution to around 72 - 80 ppi.

Height / width will depend on the image.

If you are using Photoshop, the File > Save for Web command is the easiest one to use and allows you to save larger images than just File > Save. You can use the Quality slider to adjust final file size. Approx 10" x 12" at 72-80 ppi and low Quality seems to work if you use Save for Web. (Low quality is OK for monitor viewing.)

If you are not using Photoshop (and that's perfectly OK), what program are you using? Perhaps one of the other members can give you specific assistance.

Not to worry... we'll get you going soon.

~Danny~

Thanks!

Thanks Danny,

From posting the thumbnail and just clicking on it, I was able to figure out how it works. I'm amazed at some of the work that is displayed in this thread, I'm glad I found this site and will participate.

Thanks again.

Why thanks! My technique is modified from a tutorial by Helen Yancy. Corel's Painter web site has a portion of the tutorial.

Painting Hair in Painter 8

Helen Yancy Studio (click on instructional material)

Some others you might want to check out:

a) Glad to help
b) Glad (too) you found us

If you ever want to replace an image, click the Edit button under your post, then click Manage Attachments. In the dialog you can delete/upload a replacement or even add images to what's already been uploaded.

I agree. Many exceptionally talented folks have contributed here and an even bigger bonus: They're very helpful and supportive.

Having been around a couple years I've seen rookies really blossom just by jumping in and trying again and again, as well as those with experience find new tools in their bags of tricks. It's almost like Christmas everyday!

Look forward to seeing more of your creativity.

~Danny~

More of Trimoon's history technique... with a small change. Try using a clean sketch over the first layer (bg), find your best mode. Then use any brush in the art history setting..now that's the snag, finding the right brush. Keep your brush very small and high opacity.
Work with the blending modes to find the best. then...

Throw in a layer made with Impressionist (Danny's oil) is great!!! Work with them, trying out different texture and modes.

Have only done this twice. Cindy was the first.. Was much happier with this one of Cindy

Will do it again and try to keep some intelligent notes.
To see a larger version of Jennifer.
