    I was watching your second demo (probably you have moved forward, and have no interest in this), but I was thinking that it would be great if from that aerial view, you show, blurred, and behind the clouds, some ground. You know, houses and farm deliniations, of the ground far far away.
    Anyway, as I said you probably have moved forward.

    PS: It's great to see someone that make a real step-by-step, and I apriciated much.
    Probably I'll came again to make you some anoynng questions.

    mrgrumble: Thanks tim I've said it before but I'll say it again, so much fun.

    Lennon: Yeah, for sure; I can see that. Glad you liked the demos, more than happy to answer any and all annoying questions that I can

    supersalenco: No problem man, really pleased they can help some people a bit

    armaldon: Thanks man, glad you are enjoying them!

    Jamaludin: Great! Really happy people are getting some use out of these. I was worried at first. Tablet? If you have the money go for Intuos3 6x8, bigger is a matter of taste/opinion. If you are broke, buy a Graphire4 - I used a Graphire 2 4x5 for years and didn't have any problems. But I love my Intuos

    Liam.C: Hey man! You've really been kicking ass lately, cheers and thanks!



    Working on some more videos right now, trying to figure out optimal compression vs quality etc etc. Later then!

    Notes: You will need the capability to decompress .RAR files. Codecs are included in each .RAR. For this set there are 2 codecs, parts 1-2 use the CamStudio Codec; parts 2-4 use the msu-sc Codec. Both codecs are lossless however the msu has a smaller file size and better capture I believe. Installation is very simple. Videos are sped up, exact times I don't know. One or two of the files doesn't seek as well as I would like it to, but the issue is fixed in later videos.

    Working on the balance between quality, file size and duration. These three are lossless, 100% quality, working resolution and rather quick duration 5-10 minutes but the file size for each .RAR is between 40-55mb. Give me any feedback you may have, too short? too big? Bear with me, still figuring all this out.

    There is also a part 4, but it's perhaps not so interesting and adding a background made the file size go jumbo.

    Notes: You will need the capability to decompress .RAR files. Codec is included in .RAR file. This is unfortuneatly is only 1/4th or 2/5th's away from being the complete demo. Let's just say, technical error for the last part . Demo is of course sped up again (360%), hope it's not too fast for you; if it is I recommend a video player such as BSPlayer that can slow playback. Still working on the balance between size, resolution, duration and of course quality. So far the MSU codec is king. Cheers!

    Edit: Forgot to add, this isn't how I usually start things; rather using multiply as a sort of glaze is something brand new I tried out during this demo.

    MikeCorriero asked me a few questions I'll try and answer them as well as I can;
    The brush I used 99% of the time in this was a default round; size, opacity and flow set to pressure. I almost never use the manual opacity and for this particular style I found it best to use 100% flow as I didn't really have to 'blend' much. After the initial sketch I used an abstract brush with many hard edges to sort of lay down a base coat of the primary color I had envisioned for this painting. Directly afterward I used a soft light layer and the same brush to create even more variety in color, overtop of which I also use an overlay layer with the same method. Here I was establishing the general palette I used for the next several rendering steps. It can also be great to use the clone brush with these methods as it adds another layer of grit, grime and variance. Now, next came something I've really been enjoying lately something I saw Andrew Jones demonstrate at the recent San Franciso workshop. Duplicate your layers, or hit ctrl+alt+e. Flip this duplicate canvas, set it to either lighten or darken and experiment with it's position on the canvas, you may also want to enlarge your canvas by 200% in each direction. I think you'll find that some things work quite well symmetrically and others work best if you stretch and distort the canvas. Overall I really enjoy this technique - it's helped me see many possibilites that I would otherwise never see. I think it's also a great tool for conceptualizing. Moving on I used a 'dirt' brush, very low impact with essentially small bristles to add even more grit to the canvas. Afterwhich came one of the most drastic changes done with the editing modes; curves, color balance and selective color. If you have Adobe CS or above you will be able to click on these adjustment layers to view them in more detail. These are very handy tools if you've changed your mind about what colors/values you want as well as changing mood etc. Even if I haven't changed what I have in mind, I will still experiment with these and most often find something that I think works even better. The next steps are just more rendering and in the final just a unsharp mask to help visibility for web as well as tweak some edges.
    Thanks for listening to me ramble
