Like the previous illustration, I did the sketch, then scanned to photoshop and did all my color and texture in photoshop. I usually block in color in photoshop then go to painter. But I just got a bunch of new "Machine Wash" texture filters from Mister Retro and am totally diggin' the results. I didn't just hit filter and stop there. There are lots of layers and experimentation going on.
I do want to get an upgrade to Painter because the new oil paint tool looks hot. I was reading a tutorial on CreativePro.com featuring an artist who made it look so good. Be warned that his painting skill was high. It wasn't just pushing the oil paint button. I appreciate when someone brings all their skill into the work. Computers get a bad rap in that area with some. It's a tool. And I love it. My only regret is not having an original when I am done.
