Cave Critter

I am not really forgetting to post something. I just was sidetracked a bit with the last week of school and finals. I was also working on this painting the last week or so. Here is the link on youtube if you are interested. http://youtu.be/uqFyJVVmA1U

I don't really ever know what sketch will strike my fancy and eventually become a painting. This particular painting started with the sketch posted in my Halloween countdown. It might still be at the bottom of the page. If not, then here is the original sketch.



I am painting this using Corel Painter 12.2. I have about 15 hours work into the painting at the moment. Painter is still my main painting program though I often jump around between different programs depending on my mood and what I am trying to accomplish.

The original image dimensions are 5400 x 4100 pixels.

I will post an update of the final image when finished.

Bang! Bang!

Ever want to just shoot something up? Can't help you there. If however you have ever wanted to paint a bunch of bullet holes in an image, then this is just for you.

While cleaning out a bunch of files, I found an old Painter nozzle of some bullet holes. I made this back in 2007 for a project I was working on and had forgotten about it since then.



To use the file you will need one of the Image Hose brushes in Painter. Just load it as a nozzle and paint away. You will probably need to adjust the size settings ...... maybe some other settings too.

If you are not familiar with the image hose and need some instructions let me know and I can post some.
