First proper painting on Corel Painter Sketch pad. And the sucker failed me big time.
It was all done, saved it. Took a picture of it with my Blackberry as shown above. Returning to the file, somehow a layer of the woman just went missing on me. Funny, since I have not quite figured out how to use layer on Corel yet.
I was actually pretty pleased with the outcome (and how amazing the software was) and was going to take a rest straight after. That was until the lady suddenly gone missing. So I just started drawing and playing with the tools again. And downgraded my impression of the software down a notch.
Got it. Lesson learned. Never get happy too early. 🙂 I am very very bummed but have forced myself to take it easy lately.
Lost one? Create a hundred more!
Which then proves the point that when you get something relatively easy, it can disappears on you just as fast. Doing a proper physical painting that takes days to complete instead of the two hours I fiddled on Corel would ensure no lost lady in the process. Definitely.
