Hi Danny. Thank you so much for your appreciation. I think your renditions are absolutely FANTASTIC. Have been scouting around for your work - do you have a special tutorials page??
Re Painter, I have an older version of it - but then it used to be called Fractal Design Painter. Yes, I have been using it off and on.

Just a little bit of hand coloring with some impossible Irish Green background.
Extreme minimum PS palette knife
2 x Dave's Simplifier, Faded
High Pass Sharpening coupled with some USM.

Cheers

Your words humble me. Thank you very much. Most of my work (art and tutorials) are posted in threads here at RetouchPRO. I have posted some artwork at http://www.pbase.com/dannyraphael

Painter has bounced around quite a bit company-wise during its life: Fractal Design to MetaCreations to Procreate (a short-lived Corel subsidiary) and finally back to (mother ship) Corel. I like the Corel version 8 because it supports native Photoshop layered files and, as such, makes it easy to ship files to/from via Photoshop. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of Painter capabilities... It's like a huge candy store and I'm looking forward sampling more over time.

No worries. Lightbulbs still come on for me in various areas of Photoshop. It's like, "Why didn't I get that before?" but that's the way it is. So much to learn, so little time.

Glad to know you're seeing better these days. The light only gets brighter from here on out.
