    My Hermes Watercolor page

    A couple of people were curious about whether or not I painted the picture of Hermes in this page:



    Well, not exactly. I used a program called ArtRage Studios that came free with my Wacom Intuos Tablet. I've had it for several months and thought I'd try it out. I can not paint, draw, sketch or do anything free flowing like that. This program lets you do it ALL and beginners like me can just paint right on top of a photo. Being as picky as I am with my pages, I can spot several things that I would like to change or do better, but for a first try I thought it was fun.

    BTW, I only painted Hermes on my page. The rest is all Katie.

    Very neat program, Kelly! You did a great job on the watercolor painting! I hear you about things you'd like to go back and change, however. I do that with almost every LO.

    BTW, how do you like your Intuos? I've been thinking of stepping up from the Bamboo Fun I have. Just not sensitive enough.

    Tracy, I got the Intuos Pen and Touch and I like it. I really don't see much of a difference yet from my Bamboo Fun (I think it was really a replacement in their line), but my Bamboo Fun was acting up on me so I replaced it. I feel like I can make smoother lines now for doodles and such, but they still aren't perfect. I think I just need to experiment with settings for that. I did get several programs for free with the Intuos though, one being ArtRage, which I think I'll really like. Another freebie was PSE11. I had PSE9 and so I went up 2 levels for free. :O)

    Thanks for the information, Kelly! I do get frustrated at times with the smoothness of the lines I can get with the Bamboo. I feel like a four-year-old because I can't draw a straight line ... or a circle or a square ... I would REALLY like a Cintiq, but just can't afford to spend that kind of money on what would essentially be a "toy" for me. Maybe I just need to keep practicing ...
