just a quick post,
here is the finished image i created during my last streaming presentation last week. i had a great time during the stream, there were some great questions that were asked and I really enjoyed sharing the information and raging the magic of painter 11 for 3 hours . i put some more time into it after the class to glamor it up a bit
i did not really have any idea of how this was going to come out but im satisfied enough with the results to share it, big thanks to everyone who made it to the stream, your participation in the chat is a big inspiration.
the proceeds from the stream will benefit the Hope campaign to help people in Africa, its a great cause and I'm more than happy to have the chance to support them.you can learn more or join the cause here http://www.hopecampaign.org/
I will let you know when this image becomes available as a print.
the stream will be available on demand for a limited time,
so check it out , its a good time for a good cause,
wow very clever ha nice one
Love the complementary light blues & bright red-oranges!
ah this funky style of yours...
I like the dark side of your image for its simlicity actually. You have more broad shapes there compared to the "usual" zillion of tiny psychotic elements.
And it works. Nice job.
So much Beauty.
Thank you for sharing.

What an inspiration... Brilliant!
I watched this on demand a few days ago. For anyone still wondering, this is INCREDIBLE value for money. I spent as much on this as I'd spend on a meal at McDonalds (I was paying in pounds, so the conversion rate works in my favour). For that price I got to watch Android paint for HOURS and hear his commentary. My only regret is that I didn't hear about it early enough to watch it live. If I had, I would've been able to engage in the live chat.
Anyway, why are you still reading this? Go and buy this stream immediately! Even if you don't give a shit about charity, you'd have to be mad to pass up a deal like this.

thanks guys , Im glad you like the image
Oblio, Miss You too Frate, cant wait to see the new video, internatinsal self portrait day is right around the corner.
Yowza, random shapes are interesting, i created several new painter pattern brushes for this demo, its a thrill for me to experiment live and discover new shapes, i think i thrive on unpredictability
e338 its was only a 3 hour painting so i dint have time for zillions of shapes just a few hundred thousand.
Hookswords , actually all of the colors already exist, keep in mind that our eyes and minds have only evolved to pick up a small bandwidth of the infinite possibilities of conscious perception, So i cant take credit of inventing or discovering colors, instead i see it as celebrating the colors, exploring abstract relationships between colors is a great pleasure, and with Painter 11 new color wheel there are more color options avaliable to the digital artist than any time in the history of the digital medium.
Mr. m- INDEED the opportunity to use the skills i have developed to benefit other people that desperately need help gives me a warm fuzzy feeling all over, i encourage everyone to try it sometime.
Craz - Im very gratefull for your authentic testimonial, Even i left the stream totaly inspired. its kind of tricky painting by myself taking into a mic and reading the delayed chat, especially when you have no idea what to paint/ The stream was also going live to an audiance in austin texas so that added another level of consideration.
painting in front of people sometimes feels like acting or performing, but in last 45 min i hit my stride and got into "the Zone". i could feel the energy of people in the chat room but instead of it being distracting it focused direction, the skull i added at the bottom was like surfing one long impulsive wave of creative current, im really excited that i was able to share a moment like that live across the stream,
stream,... current..... wave, im sensing a theme here.
and as always I'm stoked to show off the mystical digital chaos side of the corel painter 11 engine, based of the chat feedback i know i sold a few people on giving it a test drive.
so if you haven't had the chance please check out the demo, its only 10 bucks and i don't mind spamming because all the money goes to a great cause, and If you have not checked out one of the ca streams this is a great chance to get up to speed with the new wave of online art education.
It was definitely a pleasure to watch you paint, Android. [And also awesome to help out a good cause at the same time!] I always find watching others work fascinating because of all the little personal variations in everyone's work flow/process. Very inspiring and helpful! Thanks again for taking the time to do it!
It was sheer pleasure to watch you work. Its always a guessing game, and those moments to see what your creating coming into shape is always exciting.
I have a Friend who goes to Kenya every year doing fundraisers and what not. I definitely need to pass along the link to this Image.
Thanks for keeping it fresh.
I wonder is there is a Tattoo artist out there good enough to make that skull into a Tattoo for me. No joke.
