Red face Thanks guys!

Thank you Neve...its all thanks to Axeluk i opened the painter program and it scared me...lol and then i did the tutorial of his and with a mouse its hard to do, dont have the sensitive pressure but it was fun to do.

Awww thank you Pam i have also answered your email...To him its easy, and he only had the wacom for like 2 weeks, after 2 weeks and produces a tutorial like that he should have commission from wacom lol!

All wet

Legacy, very well done. Was this with the WetOils10 cloner? If so, it turned into a nice watercolor with the Hue/Sat & texture. I can't wait to see how good your work will turn out with a tablet. It makes a LOT of difference.

Pam, looks like you've got the Impressionist bug and doing well with it. Keep 'em coming.

Here's my 1st successful try at a "real" watercolor: I started in Elements2 by cropping the image and enlarging what was left. Then I applied a masked layer with NeatImage to clean up the JPG artifacts here & there. The rest was done in Painter8 with various brushes from the DigitalWaterColor category. (Mostly FinerMop, PointedSimpleWater, FineTipWater, a bit of NewSimpleDiffuser, and a pinch of Salt - try it - a very cool effect.) I played around with the Diffusion & WetFringe settings with good results. Most of this was cloned, of course, but I did do a bit of hand painting to get the water to look more like water / less like sky, and to add a hint of detail to the children's faces. Here I overdid the boy's eye a bit, but the girl turned out great IMO. Finshed by adding texture in Painter. This was a great learning experience and very fun to do.

-Mark

Thank you Legacy & Mark

Mark - I have got both the Impressionist and the Painter bugs!! I'm like a kid in a sweet shop, I don't know which one to play with next

I really like how yours turned out. I'll have to play with the brushes you mentioned. I've been sticking to the wet oil cloner so far.

Hmmm...do I get a new dryer for the one that died today, or a wacom tablet? Very tough decision...but I think my husband will overrule me here.

This one is just the usual stuff I do. Nothing fancy.

Vp watercolor, impressionist pencil sketch, invert, color burn blend. Surprising result!!
______________
My 2nd image was done with image-calculations on duplicate with green channel, and a bit of jugglery after that.

Buzz about 50, VP watercolor, everything set to Subtle, VP Oil, set on Subtle for everything but material-Normal. Nothing unique. I use VP a lot, but if you use it on a layer, most of the results will increase or decrease the size of the image, and screw up you finished image if you go higher than Subtle. Thanks for the kind comments.

Amy
