    new way of learning to paint...

    from a screensaver! Couldja believe that?

    This demonstration will show you from start to scratch, a complete painting of a portrait of spiderman. (very cool!)
    The demo is also really LONG, so get some coffee first! :eek:

    get it right here!

    This is just the tryout version, if you decide to buy it, there are tons more paintings that they'll show you. :hmm: but this is good enough, ha!

    I can't get it to draw spiderman or anything representational.

    The preview just shows a bunch of random paint strokes along the outside of the page and then it stops.

    hm, yeah, the dude paints in the background first, very roughly at first.

    I do not know why it just stopped. It shouldn't have!

    cool!

    btw, its not a simple "cartoony" version of spiderman. It's actually a realistic painterly painting, modelded after the version in the recent films. woo!

    Ok, I got it working. If I let go of the mouse as soon as it starts it keeps going.

    I guess my optical mouse is weird or something.

    it was TORTURE to watch this for as long as it did... only to tell me to register..... rrrrrrrgh good thing the artist didn't smudge with his finger or he'd be missing a metacarp by now.
    I wouldn't be suprised if he's been doing lots of oil painting.. Anyways.. Interesting but frustrating.

    kinda cool...but it seemed like he was working from a photo...which wasn't entirely my cup of tea. It's hard to translate his thought process into understanding that'll help me to improve when he doesn't do any underdrawing/construction lines or anything.
    Plus, he takes a few areas into finished detail while leaving other areas virtually untouched...
    I'm no expert, but as far as I know, it's more efficient to have the same level of detail over the entire piece before moving on? ...but don't take my word for it, heh....it's still better than the screensaver that I had previously.
