    Read some of part one, and I'm very impressed. I'm just new to photoshop and this site (this being my first post ever).

    This is my first try of painting something from life in photoshop, all I've done before this is editing photos.

    You should note that I've used a crappy touchpad to do this (I really want a tablet, but I'm short on money):

    Digital Painting In PS #2

    1: My apple as I first made it; yesterday
    2: Today: Added highlights and smoothed it a bit
    3: Today: Added more shadows
    The bonus one: For fun, just played around with some settings. It's the no. 3 which is the 'finished one'

    My first real try.

    Ok this is my first post and my first real serious attempt at digital painting. I'm fairly experienced with traditional paints but i've always been frustrated with working with tablets and photoshop. After reading through some tutorials on here I realized my settings just really sucked. I worked on this for about an hour and a half and it was pure joy. Thanks for all the great info guys!!!

    here's my first: sorry for lack of intermediate steps: First is the base drawing, the next is the final. I've really had trouble trying to render sharp edges in the apple, and some of the midtone colors. I'll still try to make at least one of these daily, to see how it goes. TIME: about 30 minutes straight.

    One question for the master bumskee: how come does the third brush in your basic.abr have two darker holes in the middle of the lighter circle? wouldn't just the large circle work the same?

    Why a solid brush? Why not a 50% flaired brush?

    I drew a face in 45 minutes, but I didn't finish. I drew it out of proportion and used liquify to get everything in it right place, and I used the brush set on color to change the coloring. I always like drawing with a flaired brush so everything blends as I work. Every 30 to 45 seconds I did a save as, to have a picture for each of my steps. I stoped at 60 pictures, and made a movie.

    I don't know why people like to use the solid brush and then smuge or what ever. Maybe you can explain what makes that way better. I also like to use a laser mouse, and I have had a tablet, but I will stick with the mouse. In the meanwhile check out my movie http://archie-chipps.com/new/Faces.mov

    Brilliant video, AChipps! I dunno if you know or not, but you can embed youtube videos in forums, makes it quicke and easier to see vids.

    My only real crit of the face you produced in the vid (and is also true of the animal face in your profile pic) is that it is very flat. I think it might have somehting to do with the way that you work on the each component of the face seperately, with only a very vague impression of the rest of the face.

    For example, in the video you start off with a big fleshy-pink circle for the face, then go straight into placing the features which are all then paintined seperately ( and highly accurately). This results in a 'pie dish' face.

    Maybe you could try to paint a face ina three-quarters position and see how your liquify technique handles it.

    When painting with hard brushes you often work work from big shapes to small defining on the way with picking colors between and mix them in with low opacity hard brush. read what bumskee says in the first post and I think it will enlighten you on how you can get a good blend with hard brushes.
    Are you shure you got the right settings for the tablet? som people might find them wrong just because someone set them to mouse mode (I'm teaching digital painting-basics).

    It's hard to explain, but I'm the type of person that turns a watch into a magnet just by wearing it. That energy stores up in the pad, and makes a hole in the middle where the pen starts to jump across the gap. After the charge went away, I gave the pad to another artist that needed one.
