What did you use on this. I haven't found a good portrait brush, yet. THERE ARE SO MANY!!

Thanks

I have the real one. I rarely run accross anyone else that has it, which is a shame because it's a great program.

Dave, an SA question. Does the full program accept files other than jpg??
Also, can you build layers like PS, close that file and maintain the separate layers?

Thanks

It will not open images that are layered. It will open most common files such as PSD, TIFF, PICT. I usually flatten and change it to a JPeg. You can create and work in layers inside the program and save as 8 different file types. The big advantage of SA is that it is non distructive in that it doesn't and can not change the original image. It is also resolution independent. You can start with a 72 500x600 image and put out a very large file 300 5000x6000 image and lose non of the detail. Oh I almost forgot, It will not not export in layers it flattens before saving.

Dave, thanks for the info. Wish it would save in layers. Ah, well.

Here's a rather quick attempt in Painter IX. I'm not too sure about the colors, as I did this on my laptop and am never sure that I'm looking at it at the right angle. Anyway, here it is.

Thought I'd just drop in and say Hi

And then I thought I'd do some painting while I was here Done in Painter IX with Den's Messy Oil Brush and some Just Add Water to blend. Colour/contrast adjustments done in PSCS2.
