Digital Painting Techniques Downloads

Thank-you for your purchase. Welcome to the Digital Painting Techniques-downloads for the Impressionistic DVD Series.

This page will be undergoing some changes in the next few weeks. I will make the videos available for streaming as well as download. This will happen between 7/4/2010 and 7/28/2010.

For now I wanted to make sure you had quick access to all of the resource files via download. Please do not share your password to this page. You all paid very good money to have access. The way the secure files work is that a log is created when that file is accessed. That log shows who is accessing the file so you can see if there is any theft, because the file is tagged it shows where it originated. So if passwords are shared it has it in the log.

I am not so much worried about the sharing of passwords. I trust those who have spent money to have access. The real thing that is protected is from the folks who steal content and make torrents available to any one.

Enjoy.

These videos will stream from a service I use called S3 Flow Shield. If you begin to watch a movie and then leave the page or let it set for more than 60 seconds you will have to “refresh” the page to get the video live again.

In this first video there is no sound for 31 seconds…I intended to edit that out and I forgot to do it so, it will be sans sound for 31 seconds, it works fine after that. If you should want to play the vid full screen simply clock on the grey and light grey square box by the speaker volume, that will take it full screen. To take it off full screen hit your esc key.

To play full screen click grey square on the video below

Photoshop Painting Easier With CS5

Photoshop Painting With Adobe’s CS5 will be much easier

By Julie Christy Encabo

There are selection of new features that are being developed by ‘Photoshop Labs’, including Painter-style brushes, a new warp tool and more.

The new brush tools aim to match what is found within the Corel Painter application. When you choose a brush, its prototype is displayed so you will get an idea about the type of brush you are about to use.   It has ‘wet’ paints (they have properties of drying out) that you can smudge, smear or blend. Also, there is a shortcut when we want to change the color of the paint on the brush, it is just a one-press command where the color picker will then be shown. Another improvement with the brushes is its shortcut command, when we want to resize the brush, we can use the same command like in the previous version (left and right parenthesis )  but when we drag our mouse horizontally, the size will change, and when we drag it vertically, the softness will change, how cool is that?

Potentially, the new technology could allow Photoshop users to drastically change someone’s appearance or position, as well as modify an environment with more ease.

With the new CS5, A similar tool to the  After Effects’ Puppet tool (Go to Edit -> Puppet Warp) has been added to Photoshop, enabling artists to warp the image by placing pins into areas to lock them down, then moving the areas around them. An overlaid grid or mesh will show up that tells you how the image is being warped, it can be turned on/off and the number of points can be adjusted. By locking down certain areas of an image using digital pins, you could change specific parts without altering the overall subject.

The new spot healing and fill tool will give you a great opportunity to give your picture a realistic view. When you want to use this, you will only need to color/select the area you want to disappear or adjust and the program will use the pattern of the picture and make multiple patches from the surrounding area in order to fill the hole that you just created, not like in the previous version where you need to define a point you want to patch your image from.

All in all a very cool upgrade and well worth the cash outlay.
