Re-Invented for Today....An old Story on a plate,The Willow Pattern,
This is a picture I started in the Work in progress forum, and I wasnt going to show it until it was finished,but I made a cherry blossom sticker brushhead,and I was so pleased with it,that I thought you might like it, its BLUE so you get colours you dont expect,you will need to adjust the HUE setting or guess how far to shift the colour picker to get the colour you want,you will also have to change the 100% to about 300% on the size of brush you are using,but you can play around with this as you want....I am showing this picture before its finished because I have just done the cherryblossom bits, I think you will like this brush,the result speaks for itself,it was done with photomanipulation so its accurate and lifelike...see what you think, the brushead is in the Art Supplies forum if you would like to try it.....Jack.

Jack- This is such a clever thing to do. I love how this turned out. Your invention of the cherry blossom sticker brush is very pleasing indeed. Well done mate!

Brilliant idea and extremely well executed. Just one small suggestion would be to add the shine to the glaze itself. :):)

Fashmir.... Hello David,If I do any brusheads or stickers I think people might like to try,I always post them in Art Supplies,I try to make things look as natural as possible,sometimes works sometimes it doesn't,pleased you like this one...the stuff I post isnt meant to be replacement for the artists own work,its meant more as an aid to help anyone with a time limit,or a deadline to meet,there is no copyright on any of my stuff and the photograph I used is from an old one of the cherry blossom in my back garden,,I just use random rotation on it to make it non-uniform,I will post more if I think they are good enough, just hope they will be of some use, they can be changed and altered at will and your own or other flowers can be added to make each picture individual of course,thanks for the reply David, hope you may find something useful, even if it just saves you a bit of time....best regards ..Jack.
