I'm hoping John and others will weigh in with some interesting methods for creating and applying textures globally as well as selectively to images in Studio Artist.I'd like to find a method or process for applying a believable canvas texture to a finished image. The requirements I have in mind are: 1_subtle application of the texture that mimics the real world effect of paint on canvas (some kind of luminence mapping?) 2_the ability to apply texture globally, or selectively by brush…See More
Nice to hear from you. Sorry it took so long to respond we spend a lot of time up at the lake in the summer. I never heard of Live Play but am always interested in new and old stuff. Love your abstracts.
Hand painted is nearly always better. One cool aspect of SA is that you can record the hand painted line as a bezier curve, then use the paint paths command to try different strokes. I posted an example of this using a drawing of an avocado a while back. link: http://studioartist.ning.com/forum/topics/bezier-curves-movie
well for something "simple" there is a lot of complexity there. I like how you have subtly shaded the colors, and the use of line is great. Not just the curve and placement of the line but the texture and width of the line too.
I do it in a similar way although, I do blend layers if I am not getting what I want otherwise ( or to see what I might be missing). I wind up saving lots of versions and then select the one(s) I like.
