    Macaw Tutorial

    This was mostly an excersize in learning how to get the desired brushstrokes I wanted, which will be an ongoing process for a while. This program is much more intuitive than Corel Painter, I love it. Tips, Crits, etc. will be appreciated. John

    That is a pretty outstanding first one. Like the painterly effects.

    Nice. I would suggest trying to smear some of those lines in the appropriate directions (following the form as you have done).

    The line work is a little repetitive, meaning the lines are about the same all over the bird. And they're taking on the quality of yarn or a pinata. And that's cool if that's what you want.

    Were you to sorta smooth it as if you were producing longer brush strokes as it gets away from the head to the longer feathers (I assume), it could make it a nicely designed image.

    And you could get movement that way like movement toward the eye -- longer strokes to shorter ones.

    If you want to play with it, save this copy of course and work on a duplicate just to play around with the smearing tools like the palette knife and so on.

    There's no right or wrong. Just kibitzing here.

    Have fun!
