HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE PAINTER X


I have some possible comic book work on the horizon and have been experimenting with painter cross platforming with photoshop and it's been fun. The way I'm working is starting projects in photoshop (which I'm familiar with), blocking out colors, and then opening psd files in Painter and hopping between the two. What I love about Painter isn't so much the brushes, although the brushes in Painter are many and fantastic, rather it's the extended possibilities of manipulation and the palette for mixing up paints (taking me back to mixing up paints on a tile at art college).

I used a little bit of Painter in Grimmwood, but only for the canopy. I hope to use more.

I just commented on your Grimmwood BGs elsewhere, and in light of your Painter post, you maybe interested in Artrage - really intuitive, stable and elegant. The pay version has layers. Highly recommended... www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html
Not that I'm on commission or anything.
