Along the Way
I've been trying to get comfortable with Corel Painter Essentials 4 software. I'm not comfortable yet! This is a background sketch for the cartoon I'm working on. Some parts work better than others. I like the bush and the building just left of it. I just discovered that Academic Superstore has a fire sale price on the professional full feature set of Painter, Painter X. Instead of $400 plus it's $89! So I sprang for it. Too bad the sale wasn't running when I bought the junior version.
This image is an auto paint picture of the interior of a Fry's store. I brightened it in Photoshop.
It too makes a nice background, but the problem there is matching it for other angles. Also, I can't remember how the heck I got this expressionistic effect!
