Re: Corel Painter Essentials 4 announced

Well done Steve...You are getting there...your pic looks like one....my aim is to get rid of the photo look and get a painted look...wether it be watercolor,oils or acrylics....Do you know that you can use any of the brushes to clone by clicking on the clone icon in your paint palette...took me ages before i got that!!!!

paint on!!!

Patricia..........

Yes, I was aware of that re. the brushes. Have been running through the different settings with the different brushes.

Working on closeups seems to make it easier to pull out the detail of the original yet give it a painted look. Mostly I am getting paint strokes that just blur or smear the original and leave no detail even when I use the soft or hard edge cloners for touchup.

Re: Corel Painter Essentials 4 announced

I tend to do a muck up of the whole pic with a big brush...then as i go along i change the brush size smaller...could be the same brush or a different one...the smaller the brush the more detail you will have....Its really scary when you first start with Painter and i still consider myself a beginer...cause there really is so much to learn...Well done Steve....Oh and another tip...when you have finished your painting...click on equalize...it really pops the colors......

Re: Corel Painter Essentials 4 announced

Hello Zekeode,

I use Painter IX and i am just trying to get Steve into painting....I did get Essentials 3 with some software and had a look at it...it hasnt as many functions as Painter but i think its good...it has all the basics....I havent upgraded my Painter as i feel i have much to learn so i am sticking with IX for the time being...Sorry i cant help with your decision....

Patricia............

I don't have Essentials, but found these which may help you decide:

Hope this helps a little.
