Very, very nice Gold. The technique you describe sounds awfully close to the one I've been doing. Great minds???

Duv, Very nice! I love the smooth, lusterous skin tones you produced.

Axel, I'm running out of superlatives to describe your work. Did you change backgrounds in Painter or elsewhere? I made a real mess when I tried to mix cloning and (hand) painting in a new background in Painter. You did it beautifully what ever trick you used.

For Mark

Hello Mark.
I see you have a great wish to learn about Painter. I have painter 8.
I know you have addressed your question to Axle, hope you both dont mind my taking the liberty. (Besides, you did ask me in another thread "mountain man", i think). Also hope nobody minds my posting this image here.
The answer to your question on backgrounds lies in layers and layer blends. For this image, i started with 4 blank layers for my cloning, apart from the original image in another window which was my clone source. For the bottom layer i went to effects-fill, and put in a gradient fill with blue and black as my colors. (Full opacity in the fill window) And default blend in layers palette. The next layer was filled with pattern, layer palette opacity 84, multiply blend. The 3rd layer (again default blend) was blank on which i cloned with whatever brush took my fancy....as u can see from the various effects. Dont forget to depress the clone button on the color palette. That way you get to use MOST brushes for cloning. The 4th or uppermost was again filled with gradient fill with red and blue colors. (21 opacity for the other layers to show through - this is done in the fill palette) On this layer i used an eraser partly to reveal lower layers.
This creation is not very good, and didnt take me long to do. But i do hope it answers your question.

Thx Jaykita

I sure appreciate the help. I'm still having some issues cloning cleanly (keeping the background I DONT want from getting cloned in at the edges of the parts I DO want.) But I'm making progress in part thanks to your tip for building a good layer stack before starting to clone.

Whilst jaykita's technique is specific to Painter, i find it a lot easier to do any post image modification in Photoshop first, this give you more control and a lot more options to experiment with.

In Photoshop, depending on the picture, i use the Pen tool to outline my subject, normally zoomed up close at pixel level to give me more precise control over edge definition.

Dont worry too much about exact extraction, as the painting will hide any small abnormalities.

Dont give up, keep trying...
