Been looking with amazement recently at some of the work on here; it was enough to make me get Painter IX which I'm slowly learning. Thought I'd have a go at working on a pencils ketch I did, which I'd previouslt 'tinted' in Photoshop. Here is the original sketch:

Here is an early attempt at tinting it with Paintshop Pro:

Then I got Painter IX and began adjust the composition and to colour it; I also added a sky rendered in Bryce:

I did a quick sketch in Painter after a rain storm, my first attempt with Painter:

I liked this sky so have dropped it in to the painting:

Early days yet, but I really like what can be done with 2D. Hopefully I can learn as I go!

Great stuff :thumbsup:
Everything looks great so far, and I like the composition. Looking forward to see more.

No worries man, whatever it takes, you've got it!

The hardest part is the sketching itself and that looks good, don't worry.
Keep having fun!

It looks great!
