DARKNESS II ENTRY by R-Tan DARKNESS II ENTRY by R-Tan
Took a lot longer because of issues with Corel Painter again( I really need to switch to Photoshop). First time doing any kind of sequencial art. Had a hard time with the composition of the entire page. Also did not realize how much space that the text bubbles would take up, and had to redo the compositions of panel 1 and 2 several times. Corel Painter 12 (12-2011)

Version with possible text placement

P.S. To any prospective employers viewing this page I'm looking for full time work. Been unemployed for too long. Please check out my gallery and send my a note or email. Currently located in the San Francisco Bay, if local talent is needed.

I too share the pain in the arse of corel painter I switched to Photoshop Cs5 the brushes are far more varied in this version and silky smooth peformance. Anyway this is a superb Darkness layout. How did you manage to squeeze it all in.

I just switched to using Photoshop completely. Painter had a new update which I thought might fix some of the issues. Instead it corrupted Painter which would then not even open. It then took me 8 times to re-install after which Painter then corrupted my saved workspaces. That was the final straw. I have been using cs5 exclusively now for a couple of days and I'm glad I finally switched. It took me a day to reconfigure all my devices for photoshop. As far as the Darkness entry, squeezing is the perfect word to use. I had a hard time fitting all of that into such a small space. Which is why I think that I didn't win. It didn't read well because it was so small. Most paintings I work on are 3 times larger than the whole page.
I have more faith that Adobe will perfect its brush engine well before Corel fixes theirs. I have been using Painter since version 8. I wanted to switch for a while but couldn't get a handle on the way the brushes work. It's a lot different, but I finally figured out what works best for me. Do you know if there's a way to adjust a layer(contrast/hue/brightness) without creating a new adjustment layer? In Painter it's possible but not sure if it is in photoshop.
