UNFOLD *IF

The mysterious land of digital painting is beginning to unfold. I’ve had a personal goal of recreating my mixed-media painting technique with Corel Painter X’s awesome digital tools. I think I’m getting pretty darn close. Can you tell which one is “fully digital”? I didn’t even use the clone tool, just tracingpaper. The biggest clue is the yellow light source in the upper corner image. For which I will reveal that sometimes yellow color pencil will scan more intensely than intended because of its translucent quality when light bounces around the scanner (hint). I could still use a little more contrast and warm light in the lower dominate image, but I plan go back and rework it more because I haven’t collapsed the layers yet (hint).
I just learned this THIS week. Cooooool…Icy cool . (happy dance)

The digital transition can be a lot of fun. Looks good.

Great texture. I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference without a hint. I wanted to tell you how much I liked last week's entry too. Her eyes, hands and especially her hair are perfect.

I happened to find your website a couple of years ago and have enjoyed your work since. It is a small world.
