Ok It's finally done. I tried to print out the line drawing and mount it and watercolor ontop but that didn't work very well. I tried to use the watercolors in Painter but that was just too darn slow. My computer couldn't handle it. It took like 2 minutes just for a paint stroke to dry. Then I tried digital watercolor in Painter and that was a little better but the colors were reacting weird and the opacity for some reason wasn't really working right. So then I just sort of gave up and erased a lot of it and went back to good ol' trustworthy Photoshop to finish it up.

I fixed a lot of issues with the drawing too. I repositioned his legs and changed his face a little.

I spent way too much time on this. I still need to finish the other 5 illustrations for this assignment. O.O

      the other 5 are completely different from this one (they all have to look like they are by completely different artists). I should have the other 5 posted by either tomorrow or wednesday.
      Thanks for the comments Heidi Big Smile

    Nicely done! I love that sword! I can sympathize with the slow loading painter I get that problem alot too so I'm prone to stick to Photoshop (even though my brother wants me to practice painter) and plus it was the first program that I really learned how to use so I kinda put it up on a pedastal. But anyways as always I love all of your artwork! Grin

      oh yeah it's SOOOO slow. How fast is your computer? mine is 1.9 Ghz and I have 1 GB of RAM.
      • Feb 13, 2006
        It's the same and with no video card too.
        • Feb 13, 2006
          oh man. i really feel for you then! My computer feels ancient. I do have a video card but I don't know a whole lot about them or what impact they have on performance in graphics programs.
          • Feb 13, 2006
            Yeah it does run pretty slow with painter but it's not to bad. To tell you the truth I don't know a whole lot about video cards either I just know that it'll help your computer run a bit better than usual.
            • Feb 14, 2006
              yeah most of painter isn't too slow. But using the Watercolors (not digital watercolors) takes FOREVER. Try it with a big brush on a high resolution image.
