SaraD posted this to the OFDW 012 thread, and I wondered if anyone had any advice / suggestions?

My "masterpiece" is gone
A major crash in Painter and both the Master Copy and the childface I was working on is now "bad RIF" and cant be opened... I will not find the energy to start all over again, Im just happy I had the time to learn so much on painting backgrounds. Too bad I never got round to the main figures of the painting.
Painter is recoverd, but all customized brushes are gone, and Im mad as hell.

Does anyone have any idea how to recover the files? Is there some hope? Please?

A sad
Sara


Any useful advice appreciated!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

SaraD

this is from Jessica - (Mrs Spirit Dreamer)

Did you have to reinstall the Painter after the crash or did it recover on its own?

What message do you get when you try to open your RIF files?

If you go into windows explorer and into programs and then into painter and brushes, look in the folders for the type of brush (for examples acrylic, or oil, or watercolor) you had saved and see if there is a file with the name you used to save the brush. If "yes" then you can get your saved brushes back. You can also do a "search" and search for the name of the saved brush to find the file.

RIF files can be difficult because they are particular to Painter...that is why Glenn always saves his Painter stuff back into a BMP that can be opened with any old program if necessary (- he ends up with a million versions of each). Of course when you save to BMP the wet paint dries and the layers are gone....

Let us know how things are going

Jessica and Glenn

hi guys! i was just wondering how long the OFDW's usually take? i've been meaning to join in for some time now but i'm such a slow worker.

Lyneran,

Hey there, typically the OFDWs run for 2 weeks when we are working from photo reference.

The Master Copy OFDWs are longer, and so we're running those 3~4 weeks, and I really don't mind if people continue to post to them beyond that as they are finishing up their work.

Theoretically, no OFDW ever closes, however, I hugely encourage folks to move to the next OFDW once the 2 week period (for photo reference OFDWs) or 3~4 week period (for Master Copy OFDWs) is over. Having said that, I'll definitely look at work posted to older OFDWs ~ sometimes work has been posted weeks after that particular OFDW has 'closed', which is fine, so long as folks know that most people have moved on and so they will likely not receive as much feedback / critique. I wouldn't not look at someone's piece, but I'd rather focus energy on the current OFDW, if that makes sense.



Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Lyneran,

No problem! If you like, feel free to use the Reference from the OFDWs, and create untimed pieces on your Anatomy Thread, if that's what you prefer. You might actually get more comments that way...forum psychology is funny.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I really wanted to start a poll to see if people are painting with mouse or tablet.

So it should ask something like --
When you paint in 2D illustrations do you prefer to use the mouse or a tablet?

* I only use the tablet
* I use the tablet and sometimes the mouse
* I prefer to paint with the mouse

--

If you agree this is a good idea, will an admin please??
Or is this going to be a pointless 99% in favour of tablets?

( Maybe I'm a freak in that I don't use my old tablet lol )

Spin99,

Hey there! I don't think a poll is necessary ~ I would say that most people who can use a tablet do use one ~ it's certainly better for you ergonomically, and you don't run the risk as much of getting carpal tunnel syndrome, which you definitely want to avoid. Plus, painting with a mouse is always compared to painting with a brick ~ it's very difficult, and unnecessarily difficult.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks for telling Rebecca
LMAO @ brick comparison.
Ok you talked me into picking up the tablet again sometime.

Actually thing is I don't make a lot of sense of using a pen on a surface other than the one I'm writing on.
Pen is ok on paper or on the monitor itself(?), but on a mouse pad?
Maybe that's the whole thing.

But yes I needed someone to tell me that mouse is making things even more difficult.
I have fun sketching with it though. blah.
A brick it is then

Ciao.
