Voodoo Doll


Some more playing around with Painter. I stuck with the oil brush, and I found a blender that I liked. We learned about surface textures, papers and patterns, so I tried to use those a little. I am immensley proud of myself for finding a place to use the Glow brush. Though sadly, did not manage to get in a bit of the super awesome Liquid Metal... lol.

Are you taking a computer class of some sort? I am looking for a university or college with type of class and have had a hard time finding one....

No, not taking any computer classes. I work in an office with several other artists, and we took two days out of work to have some lessons in Painter. Our Art Director - Don Seegmiller, does tutorials and classes for Corel, so we were pretty lucky to have him around to show us the software.

Hi Maryn. I'm liking your Painter work! I myself have just got hold of a copy at work which i'm trying to make sense of. I use the Opaque Oil brush for blocking in colour and then the Smeary Oil for blending. Only trouble is it seems to take ages (almost like real oil painting which kind of defeats the object). Can i ask which Blender you used on the two images you've posted? Thanks and Merry Christmas. Noel

Maryn, I appreciate how everything in your paintings has a purpose. Even the background seems to lend life to the image. This background is ominous, which totally lends itself to the girl who will one day be a lawyer or a gym teacher. You can tell by the look in her eye.

Thanks folks.

noelap - I think I used the Grainy Water blender, at least that's the one I have on my little brush palette. I haven't quite found a blender i really like, so i haven't used them as much.
