Camouflage - Illustration Friday


"Can you see me?" said bunny, while floating away in the sky...


Loving Painter X. My trial expired tonight. Before I purchase the software, thought I'd install the Painter Essentials 3 which came free with my Cintiq (I feel like I should name my Cintiq...weird.) Anyway, it is seriously basic, more basic than I remember it being (I used Painter 3, back in the day, I remember many, many more brushes, textures, options in Painter 3 than this has) but it's still a lot of fun to fool around with, specially with my new best friend Cintiq. I can see Painter Essentials 3 as being a good starter kit/warm-up for Painter X, which, in the short time I've been using it on my trial period, seems like a pretty deep, heavy-duty program, so I definitely wll be seeking educational help with it. I think I will take Ginger's advice (thank you, Ginger!) and check out the Lynda.com tutorials when I'm ready.

I just recently got Painter X also and love using it for the textures and color variations in one stroke, but I am using a Wacom Graphire3 tablet (jealousyyy!) How is the Cintiq? I do wish that Painter X could be integrated with Photoshop because I still need all the control that Photoshop gives me. Here is my first painting with Painter X: http://tinavaziri.com/blog/?p=18
