Beach Fun Watercolour

I was trying to follow this tutorial.

http://www.digitalartmasterworks.com...ic_H20_pg1.htm

but have ommitted one step (the watercolour stroke bg layer).

PAINTER
Open original image. Clone and minimize Clone.
Maximize Original image –Apply Woodcut 45/10/2/19/output black/
for this image. Save as Outline.BMP image and open in….

PS and apply Cutout – I used 8/2/2 for this image. Save as Outline.bmp. Close.

PAINTER

Maximize Cloned Image.
Impressionist Filter/Paint:Free Daubs
Settings for this image: 25/97/76 (Image)
(you need Impressionist Plugin installed in Painter)

New Layer
Blenders/Just Add Water
Used this on jetty and figures.
Blenders/Soft Blend Stump 20 – ocean
I altered opacity and sizes as required.
Low opacity on light areas, higher opacity on darker areas
Layers/Drop all

Open Outline.bmp image in Painter.Ctrl+A to select all. Edit, copy.Mnimize then Maximize Original WC image Paste/Appears as new Layer over Canvas.

Layer Mode/Magic Combo/30% Duplicate this layer Mode/Luminosity 20%

With the layers above you need to experiment as every Image is different.

Once you have a satisfactory outline over your canvas, Merge top two layers only. The outline must remain On its own layer. On the outline layer:-

Reduce the opacity to suit.

Blenders/Soft Blend Stump 20
Blend all the outlines
Layer Blend Mode -/Gel/20% for this image or whatever suits.Layers/Drop all

You can further enhance image in Painter by Duplicating final image.Ctrl+A select all. Edit/Copy. Open original Painting and Edit/Paste (appears as a new layer) Mode – Multiply 100% (for this image)

Thumbs down Thanks to Axle

He now has me hooked on painter ix not good as this is trial and i only have a pc mouse to use, so its frustrating...

But since i followed his tutorial on the little boy picture today, i am now hooked all my pictures are getting a hit on painter.

I think you should make Axleuk a moderator cos after such a short time that guy only had painter about a week and comes up with a tutorial that got me hooked and understanding it alittle more...That in itself needs a medal!

Ok i followed Axleuk tutorial on painter on this, and then i took it to photoshop did the hue thing to it and then added the texture.

Legacy~

If anyone got a wacom graphire 2 for sale please let me know as the wacom site do not have any at present!

Neve:

I've been surfing http://www.digitalartmasterworks.com...ic_H20_pg1.htm site for 20 minutes. *HOW* did you find the link to his mini-tutorial?

I found it interesting that in the section where he describes the software he uses he went out of the way to point he didn't use Photoshop. In this WC tutorial he described using Photoshop's Cutout filter to soften the BW sketch rendered by Painter. Hmmm... closet Photoshop guy, I guess.

Line drawing:
Photoshop users can get a similar line drawing effect by applying:
* Stylize > Find Edges
* Image > Adjustments > Levels (to get rid of some of the noise)
* Artistic > Cutout -or- Stylize > Diffuse > Anisotropic to soften the edges

-or-
* Blur > Smart Blur > Edges only
* Image > Invert (to get black lines on white)
* Artistic > Cutout -or- Stylize > Diffuse > Anisotropic to soften the edges

Background arty effect:
Regarding the effects rendered by the no longer available "Microsoft PhotoDraw II", this program had a "built-in" version of the Impressionist plugin. Aren't we lucky to have it as a standalone plugin?

Thanks for posting the tutorial link. You got very nice results using it.

~Danny~

Here's my effort for this one. I used the same technique as I did for the Down by the Jetty thread here, just altering some of the values and layer opacities.
