Axeuk... have to ask, is this the first version of Painter you've worked in..??
I have been working in Painter for approx 2 weeks now.....but did a lot of reading on it before hand.

I have used Photoshop for a number of years, so i guess that experience has ported across quite nicely, of course with a little work too.

There are many different things i want to accomplish using this software and when i do, i will sure to write a tutorial on it.

Another great interpretation, Jack, and a BIG A+ on the detail.

My take on this gentleman. PSP8 impasto I think, then PM Art Gallery, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, flatten.

Second one I like better. Impressionist on one layer, Paint Flourescent Palette knife at 208. Another layer buzzed at 500, xero linart, merged on average I think.

My dramatic view

Hi ... I essentially darkened the background, used Dry brush and in a quest to get a more natural look to the hair ... I selected the hair from the original amd moved it to the new version and blended it in ... MH

Jaykita - WOW!

Hi Judy. I'm struggling to find words to describe how much I like this rendition. It's a great example of digital manipulation as art. That is, this could only come from an ARTIST, regardless of the medium / tools used. Exceptional.

-Mark
