    Paint and transperancy..?

    Hi Ragers,
    This was my first try to get the colors based on that Marta Dahlig tutorial Misterpaint had posted in the tips forum.

    This was done in GIMP.

    Unfortunately even after trying and trying very hard to do it in AR, I just could not manage this kind of subtle translucent skin feel. (even tho this is not very well executed, one can see the translucency, a bit, anyways)

    What I observed was that AR is excellent with opaque paint. I get amazing results in no time if I'm dealing with opaque paint, but as soon as I try to have very thin coats of paint in an additive manner (i.e. changing the hue in subtle blends) I get all kinds of streaks, thick paint etc.

    Has anyone else observed this?
    Does it make any sense?
    Or am I missing something?

    The more hair I lose, the more head I get.
