Who cares!?! bwa-ha-ha-ha-haaa! :evilgrin:

No, but seriously... I don't know, but it strikes me as highly improbable that Painter wouldn't have that feature, given how geared it is to traditional painting and how long that feature's been in Photoshop. You may just have to dig for it... but maybe it'll be easier now that you know vaguely what to look for.

And yeah, Sergey, why aren't you in this challenge?

Anyhow, keep it coming. Good luck with it!

Hi there, this is one of my favourites coloring styles. , i like the lighting. you know? the pose of the robot's head and nick looks a bit weird i don't know exactly what is it you can try to rotate or scale it (give it a try i think you will get some better looking robot.)

Coloring WIP: day for night

things are slowly coming together....

having moved the third character over to the right and got some sort of facial expression working (she will be pointing towards where they need to travel), I had the sudden idea to change this into a night scene, partly for atmosphere and partly to bring the characters together.

The background needs illuminating, but hey that's for another day....

The girl on the left needs to be better lit and also, she will be holding the map.

Still need to add a lantern to represent the light source in the trees (didn't want to lose this light source).

I'll post close ups of work in progress very soon.

Cool , I think this will work better! Especially with the girl that is to the left of the comp pointing, to the distance afar, Compo seems a little tight though , I think it may because of the branch above, I think u had that in the previous one, but I think the rock wasn't there and the girl to the right was in tighter, so u may have to make adjustments, don't know if ur going for the look, though. I like the changes though!

Cheers Bryce... great advice

I see what you mean about the composition - I've been fiddling with details and now they are working am just starting to look at the overall picture, so hopefully can sort these soon.

I've got a three week job starting on Tuesday, so need to get as much done as possible over the next day or so. Still there are plenty of evenings spare.

Thanks again
