Despite having used Photoshop for almost 10 years now, I'm still not happy (or entirely confident) colouring my work using it.
I'm reluctant to put too much effort in either I have to say.
I achieve much nicer results with Painter. Posted by Picasa

This opens up so many questions about the dog. Your sketches always make me laugh so hard.

Really like that picture, dog really stands out from the background.

I should fully learn how to use Paint SHop Pro (PSP is a cheaper version of Photoshop and can use a lot of the same filters and tutorials).

you did a fine job with this! I have Painter Classic that came with my tablet; but have yet to use it to its full potential.

The only thing I use Photoshop for is to optimize the artwork that I made in Flash (which doesn't compress files). There's your tip for the day:)

Hi Elliot, can you post some of your Painter work? I'd love to see what you do with it.

Elliot said...

Everyone - thanks for all your thoughts.

Uli - with the exception of a few things at the start of my archives pretty much everything you're looking at here is done in Painter (an elderly version).
Some of the colour has been done in Photoshop.
As mentioned before, I really only ever use the thing called the Scratchboard tool, and the Simple Watercolour tool.
Nothing I post here really shows off the software, but it replicates linework I achieve in an "analogue" format so I use it often.
