Hi Damien,

is your birth name Balthasar, Casper, or Melchior?

Turning a lovely photo into a piece of art is fun and rewarding. I wish I had the photographic skills to capture a picture as lovely as Damien's.
Thank you very much, I also liked what you created with your painting style. The texture of the canvas appeared quite real and your blending of colors really enhanced the dreamy feel of the photo.

I'm curious, do you use primarily Photoshop or do you dance with Painter as well?

Damien

Damien, I did the painting entirely in Photoshop using Art History and History brushes. Basically I used the Art History brush to lay the ground colors then over that used the History Brush with a very low opacity to add back details. You'll find that the Art History brush just slings paint around which is wonderful for backgrounding.

I have a water color tutorial on my home page, It's a video (in two parts) that you might find interesting. Just click on the "Tutorial" link in my signature. :-). The tutorial doesn't demo the Art History Brush, but there are some good tutes on that in the RetouchPRO Tutorial Forum.

As far as Painter.. I have it (in fact just got my update Painter X today), but I find it soooooo convoluted. I use it for a few things, but I'm more comfortable in PS.

Damien was the spawn of the Devil in "The Omen." Not sure if the referenced names are various alter egos for "Old Scratch" himself, or demonic comrades.

Metaphysics lecture over.
