I had to split it into 2, this one's less interesting but still quite useful, maybe.

What version of corell do you use? I have correl painter (esentials 4)... ? but i dont see a detail blender... ? I love the way your brush blends, so i was just curious :p

AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
I think it's Painter 7 or 8 (can't check cos it's not on this laptop!) Essentials I think has selected tools only, which probably explains having no detail blender :( Try one of the others maybe?

AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
Oh I meant try one of the other blenders :XD: if it has any??
Hmm I honestly don't know how much it would cost now D: try looking at a few online stores for price ideas? Been a long while since I got mine ;)

Nice tutorial, this is really going to help me! =D What type of brush did you use to do the mane and tail?
Reply
:iconamandadrage:
AmandaDrage Featured By Owner May 6, 2011
Just the regular digital airbrush. I use Corel Painter. The method should work pretty much the same with the Photoshop airbrush. I start with a large-ish size and work my way down to small sizes, opacity and flow mid-to-high depending on the effect I want. Usually when I'm done I find it helps to sweep a large low-opacity brush over the top of the mane/tail hairs to soften the liney effect.

sorry for the late reply! I hope it helps! :)

I'm glad I found your tutorial, I use Corel Painter too, but just so many people use Photoshop and I find it a bit hard to figure out how to get the same effect in Corel Painter. Thanks a lot, this is really going to help! =D

Oh awesome, I think Corel Painter is a bit nicer than Photoshop to paint in ;) I hope it helps!!

I'm not sure because I've never used GIMP, but I've seen some very nice work produced with it, and I'm sure it would have similar tools! :) Thank you v much ;)

So helpful, both parts! I try to find anything that makes it easier for me and my mouse, and I think this will help. I find grayscale way easier to work with!
Thank you so very much for both of these walkthroughs!

Does corel painter have any difference from corel painter essientials, cause I do have the trial for corel painter, but then again I have corel painter essientials which I OWN and does that make any difference?
Reply
:iconamandadrage:
AmandaDrage Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
sorry for my late reply... I think painter Essentials is basically a stripped-down version of the full program... it does not have as much range of tools. I'm pretty sure Essentials should have the standard digital airbrush and detail blender though, so it should not be a problem!

I've decided I struggle with digital art because I'm just so impatient with it. This is great seeing step by steps. They always remind me to slow down and as always I love your work.

I get impatient too especially towards the end! There is always something that I know I should go back and work on!
