As Swampy has said, i have not found any books that i think are worth while but there are loads and loads of tuts about on the net

here are two links for you to have a look at by Trimoon he got me hooked on using the ahb

smudge

ahb video
also look through the photo-art rescourses here there is lots to learn from the posts there and it is just practise and experiment

now that should keep you busy for the weekend

Re: Lil Curly Angel

Did a few things and then I took out Artrage (haven't took it out for a spin in a while mainly since I still only use a mouse).

You got me slightly wrong, I wasn't calling you a copycat, merely stating it's a copycat style, and you've proven you can do it now, so keep it up.

Lyle you'll have to get Art rage out more.

Re: Lil Curly Angel

But Peter; I'm lazy. lol

I do like the brush work capabilities of ArtRage more so then any other editors that I have (Deep Paint, PD Particles included; maybe I just need to play with these more but ArtRage is so much easier) especially white white brush work.
