    Sticker Fun

    Was recreating a picture that I am going to do with the Palette Knife.. This was from a reference photo.. but was done totally with the Sticker Spray tool (Except for the sky and river). Was getting an idea of placements and colors for the finished project. Done on the desktop with Artrage and my Mouse.

    That's a good idea to use the stickers to get an idea of placement of elements - I would never have thought of that.

    That IS a good idea. . . Stickers in fact could be wildly powerful elements used like that. In fact you could make some custom sticker sheets with various elements like mountains and other things from photos run through some Photoshop tricks to create a wide range of things to paint over and actually have them as elements you could move around and place in a variety of ways. . . I'd probably just import images and reduce their opacity and change their mode though and paint over that stuff with that kind of idea though. I feel like the sheets are powerful untapped potential though, thanks for sharing!

    Stencils are very useful too. As well as making a stencil from a downloaded image (checking copyright of course) you can use your own painting for future use as a stencil. I have just posted a painting with a rock I made from scratch - I like how it turned out so I will make a stencil of the rock and I can use it again - changing the size and shape with the transform tool and applying different paints.

    Neat! And great idea for composing a piece!

    There's a lot of merit in using stickers like that, clever. Well done!
