"Nicely done, Upcong. This reminds me of my visit to one of the four holy mountains of China in winter, Emeishan. To get to the top of the mountain, we had to walk through icy snow take a cable car above dark ominous clouds. As we cleared the clouds…"

"Cool series of sketches.  Are you working with raster paint or vector?  I'm guessing raster looking at it, but wanted to check."

"Cool. Did you use a movie layers to build up some of the animation? Or just dump frames by hand into an open movie stream? Or?"

Regarding your email. It seems like a big part of your problem is that you are painting in the black background with is muddying up everything. The example you wanted to learn is really just painting in the foreground. On a white background as well.

You can use the controls in the path start control panel to inhibit path starts. So, you could try inhibiting super low luminance values (which would be dark) from having path starts. However, you also have dark detail in your foregound image, so that might not work as well for your particular source.

You could select the background, then invert the selection so you get the foreground image selected. Then use the path start inhibit controls so that only selected areas of the canvas have path starts.

Or, you could turn on masking, and then mask the path. That way you get complete paint nibs drawn.

Here's a tip on masking and selection. Read about the paint masking options in the tip to understand what i was referring to (path vs paint mask).

If you still run into problems, try posting your question as a forum post and i'll try to answer there. helps if you attach the paint preset you are working with there.

Thank you very much. According to your help, I think I have made a little progress, which makes me very happy. I will continue to explore.
Here is my new experiment.

MicroSoft Surface Devices

I'm curious about people's opinions on the various MicroSoft Surface devices.  We have a Surface laptop and a Surface pro device here for testing.I really want to like the Surface laptop, but the trackpad is kind of driving me nuts. Similar issue with the Surface pro clone (accer).The trackpad acts like it's broken at times. Part of that is i think os software related, where it auto presses popups or dialog buttons without you really pressing it?I definitely have issues with apple's trackpad…See More
