More practicing with Painter... this whole thing was done with the Tapered Artist Chalk. I thought I'd try to do something using reference. I'm not sure what I think about how this turned out, but I finally had to make myself stop fussing with it.
A few things I'm learning about Painter - I LOVE the resize the brush on the fly deal. Hit cntl + alt (I don't know what it is for mac), and drag your cursor to resize your brush. Best thing ever. Also love the rotating canvas. Very cool.
Bad things about painter - I've tried and failed to like their method of transforming selections. Drives me crazy.
Overall, I'm really enjoying using Painter. I'm finally getting used to their brushes and not feeling quite so overwhelmed by all the options.
