OR IS IT?? No scans, just Painter.

100 Themes Challenge, #26 "Tears"

This is the moe (human form) of my new iPod (because Ethan needed the other one and several other circumstances I refuse to discuss) His name is Ark. Worlds are dying all around him, but he's a kid with unlimited powers. So he smiles.

Okay, I'm not upgrading to the new version of Painter. No effing way. It crashed on the second day I'm using it right after I took that screenshot, and now it won't open.

This serves to directly contrast the kinds of pen lines I get with X and the ones I get with IX. They just get too darn thick in X, and that makes details just bleed together into nonexistence.

The really dark lines, mainly his head, hair, and....left arm and hand were all in Painter X, nothing special about them, though. The rest was Painter 9, which is what I usually use. To get the notebook paper look, I used the rectangle shape tool and some old-fashioned elbow grease. :D

Oi. Painter X was the one I thinking of employing myself. Hm. I should look into that more....

I was only able to test the pen, which is the tool I personally use the most. The things that bothered me the most were the fact that the brushes were no longer in A-Z order (someone created a workspace fix for that later) and the fact that it crashed very soon after I started using the demo. Other than that, it had looked so promising....

Painter 9 I recommend whole-heartedly, though. Along with elbow grease.

I wonder if it's because it was just a demo...hm...I'm going to be trying out a new program here shortly; Art Rage 2. It's a pretty simplified program according to the looks of it, but it appears to have some of the applications of Adobe Photoshop. It allows for layers...

From what I remember of the last time I demo'd a version of Painter, it was the same as the full program, just with a time limit, but maybe. I've used Art Rage 2 before, I think... Is it any good? (i dun remember)

Great! I think I remember being sad that the glitter things weren't in the demo version.

I think it's a fang. Hee, I love his shirt. It's actually supposed to be black, but I felt like using a red crayon. In fact, I may have to get this back out and redraw his outfit to match his "story" one.
