LegacyArt, great work. How did you make one overlay the other in yellow and red. Nice Effect.
Palms1. Nice. Looks kinda dragonish.
Xaran and Pan and Kraelin, nice and not bad.
Steve and Alcar, nice sketching effects.

This is my attempt with Impasto in Painter, with Surface Texture overlay, had a tough time, and did not turn out so nice with the texture overlay. Probably need a good tute on Impasto, which is kinda hard to do on first attempt.

John Derry has a fine series of Painter tutorials.
This one explains Impasto.

Good reading!

Let me add my welcome, too, Chance... Glad you jumped in on this one.

re: Painter & Impasto
It has wonderful possibilities. So far, I struggle with it quite a bit myself, so hang in there and be patient.

I wasn't happy with my first version of Nathaniel. Here's another try, going for a watercolor & ink effect.

Thanks, Carole & Craig
I used Mike Finn's Sketcher action to get a quick outline, then erased and smudged most of it away. Everything else was done in Painter.
