I felt like painting a portrait and experimenting more in Painter...although I should be using real paint instead of digital all the time. I'll get to it soon enough. I've always had problems when working in Painter that when I take it into Photoshop the contrast is a lot darker. I'm sure it is an easy fix but I'm just too lazy to go in and fix it. If anyone knows how to do this PLEASE e-mail me. I don't know if the settings in Photoshop are just too dark or if Painter is too light. It tends to make my darks really dark. I've noticed too that when posting anything on here it's always much lighter than my original. Hope everyone has a good new year!!

There is always a captivating effect that painter gives to a CG. *sigh* I wish painter would stop crashing every 2 mins. Beautiful CG btw, a very peaceful mood. I like it a lot!

Very beautiful piece. I especially love the textures in the hair. Why can't I have hair like that? Nice skin tones too. Why can't I have skin like that also? I guess thats why my mom won't let me out of my cage. Did I just say that? Oh god, I'm in trouble now.

Nice painting seriously.

I haven't used Painter too much to give any advice, but nice portrait though. I like the Christmas card too!

Turn off color management in photoshop! It's in the prefs somewhere, there's a "don't use color mngmnt" preset. Then when you save a jpg it'll look just like your image in ps. Otherwise PS will change the way your image appears so it's calibrated for some other output. Usually for print.

Nice piece, BTW! :]
