Well, I finally finished the painting that I tried to work on in Painter 12. I tried and tried to work with it, but the lags and crashes were just too much for me to deal with. I ended up bringing everything in into Adobe Photoshop CS6 to finish this piece.
I think I finally have a system for working in this style in Photoshop. It took developing several custom brushes and working in multiple, multiple layers. But I did get it done. This one is titled “Sun, Moon, Stars.” It is really just a self-promotional piece. The original is 11 x 17 inches. I reduced it and used it as the header image on my website. www.amandascreativestudios.com if you want to check it out.
I intend to do the next one with Thanksgiving motif. I had a sketch all worked out for Halloween, but that Holiday sort of sneaked up on me in a hurry! 🙂 Maybe next year.
