    Hi guys,i have a bit of a weird question..
    i downloaded a bunch of .wpe files from here, and then watched them of course. i clearly remember a fascinating one. i watched it once,and thought it was Davi's spooged.wpe... when i went back to watch it again,i saw that it wasn't that file... now,please, i feel like i'm going insane,because i can't find that file nor on my computer nor in this thread,just can't find it anywhere.it jdissapeared..
    i would be most gratefull if you tried to help by reading the description below,and told me which file it was if you recognise it.

    It was a drawing of a guy being nailed to something resembling a tree, with a large sword in his chest.The tree was filled with what looked like spirits,skulls mostly.
    on the side was little girl throwing something like magic at him. the image was in perspective from below,and there was a bright moon i think. The whole piece was in tones of blue and cyan,but quite dark,and with most light coming from the magic and the lightning allover the pic.

    Thanks to anyone who tries,i'd really love to see the event again,and prove i'm not going insane

    Unhappy Lurk lurk... sigh

    I haven't been keeping up with the DSG so I'll post something in here to make up, and to show what I have been doing instead. I have only been painting since this christmas when I got my first wacom, and so of course I have a million things to learn. I don't really have any money so I have been using OC for all my work. So far I have created a few things decent enough to post, and have learned a few things about the program.

    The first thing is that if you save an image in OC's native format (.wpb) all the event data is also saved. This means that even if you work on a peice several times before you finish the exported WPE will still show everything from start to finish.
    The undo feature in OC is annoying sometimes. even though the program records your every action you only get five levels of undo per layer. Also undos are recorded in your wpe so people can see your mistakes.
    The brush dialog in OC is odd, but very usefull once you figure it out.


    You can save a custom brush in each of the five tabs. Just adjust your brush how you want it and hit the little disk in the upper right. Below the disk is another neat feature of the brushes, if you click the gradient your brush will have a fuzzy border. This is good for blending colors. The two boxes next to the gradient control how wacom pressure sensitivity effects your stroke. Turning the "three dots" on means opacity increases with pressure. The other box toggles wheather pressure effects the size of your brush (harder =larger). Once you have your five brushes saved you can change to them either by picking on their tab, or you can scroll through them with the 'e' and 'r' keys. Of course your brushes arn't always going to be right for the size your working at, luckily though you can dynamicaly change brush-size by holding down 'alt'+'ctrl' and draging left/right until the brush is the size you want.

    Lastly you can change some of the programs text to english by selecting english under the help menu, and also hotkeys are listed under show-help in the help menu.

    Here are four WPE I've done that are ok...

    400KB
    I did this with one of Prometheus's critters as referance.

    685Kb
    I did this with referance from a photo. My colors are washed out compared to the real thing, All its colors were fully saturated... even in shadows.

    464Kb
    This started off as me following Fred's first head tutorial, but my skills were insuficient to match the tutorial so this is really just a paint with ref.

    171Kb
    This is off the side of a pack of crackers. Mmmmm complimentery colors...

    PS: Narya, I haven't seen that one around here, but I think there are a couple I havn't watched. Try checking some with funny names, The names are generaly uninformitave at best.

    Other thingies...

    I messed around with OC some more and have a little more information about the brush dialog.


    first the three colored sliders. These control the blending effects with the watercolor brushes and don't have a counter-part under the other brush types. I am not entirely clear on all their functions, but I have found that they can be useful in certain situations.
    The red slider controls 'effect'. As far as I can tell it modifies how the other two sliders act.
    The green slider controls 'enveffect'. That is it effects how much the brushes color is changed by the BG color. If you use a brush with only the green slider it acts like a smudge brush.
    The blue slider is for 'penetrate'. It controls how much the brushes color cuts through the BG color. Using an only blue brush means your paint will not mix with BG colors. This can be usefull when putting in details near edges, as it avoids dragging white into your subject.

    The best way to understand how these three act and interact is to play around with them and see. They arn't always convienent, but they let you do some things which are very difficult to achive otherwise.

    The last thing in the brush dialog box is the little white square in the bottom right. This controls stylus pressure sensitivity. Draging the diagonal line to the bottom-right means you must press harder to get full effect. This is useful for getting lighter lines when sketching.
    Pulling the diagonal to the top-left gives full pressure effect with little effort. Good if you have a very light touch.

    There, thats everything about the brushes. Using these controls OC is much more versitial then I thought it was when I first tried it. You can achive alot of effects like those in high dollar programs, and you get features like event recording and network mode. Its a great little tool.

    OMG OpenCanvas is one of the coolest things I've ever seen in my life! I love PS, but OpenCanvas(OC) is like when I first got excited about photoshop and my tablet. Plus you can record it and drag a few poor bastards through the process alongside you!!!! WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN THAT!?!??! Anyways ... my proxy shoots down most connections, so I cannot collaborate, really. Anyways this is what I came up after playing around with it a bit.

    Yikes, this is zipped up, its a big one... 1500k, a several hour session.. Don't worry it only takes a few minutes if you watch the event without weight. I think people will enjoy seeing this, I did it with an artist friend of mine and they asked me some of my figure drawing techniques and I demonstrate a lot of them here. Hopefully others will find it helpful, it helped me a lot too actually! Learn by Teaching they say...

    Please let me know if you like what you see.
    P.S. It takes a bit to get started, skip all the boring crap at the beginning, it starts getting good when I start the motorcycle guy.

    a single .wpe file for 4 actual pictures (you have to go through the mid-time erasing for the last 2 illus)
    My friend Khalil on the left, and I on the right:
    no reference used for any of 'em, should look like this when finished

    I just downloaded Open Canvas 1.1 and watched some of the .wpe's here. Being most impressed I gave it a go myself, but I find when using my tablet, the lines stutter and jump so much that it's pretty unusable. It works fine with my mouse though. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Maybe that version of OC isn't compatible with your wacom drivers? That would be my first guess... make sure the drivers are up to date? hmm?:confused:

    I don't have a wacom unfortunately... it's a cheaper tablet, but it seems to work fine with OC now when I'm connected to someone else.. for some reason.
    Did a quick doodle with it-

    Well, at least you know you can get it to work when you're connected to someone.

    Man we need to get this thread rolling again, its good experience to paint with someone, cause you learn lots of good techniques to improve. x:

    press "alt-gr"???? do you want to clarify that please.

    ok jens let me clear it up for anyone else who gets confused with your shortcut....

    to increase your brush size theres a 2 ways i know:

    1- in your brushinfo window where your tools from brush/pen to erase and changing of the size of your brush, there are 6 tabs that you can have to save your own set sized brushes. all you do is go to your tab change your size and other options and click on the small disk icon to save it. and once you have all your 6 tabs filled...you can press E and R to scroll through those tabs at anytime.

    2- the other way that Jens is trying to show people is by pressing, CTRL+ALT it then will show a cross and just by clicking and dragging from left to right will change the size of your brush. dont press ALT first ...press CTRL then ALT.

    ok thats it! have fun ppls
