"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…"

"So have you tried animating any of these sketches?
If not, i'd highly recommend checking it out. I've had really good results with this kind of sketch effect, using the various animation features in the Paint Action Sequence editor…"
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.
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
"'How Fast' is an interesting question.
It's something we've been thinking about in relation to DualMode Paint effects. Since they work as live effects, but then getting the timing right for it is an issue right now, since the…"
"So yeah, meta editing panels that sit above the lower level Editor for something like the paint synthesizer would be a V6 kind of thing.

"You've been able to drip paint vertically in Studio Artist forever. You just need to adjust the Path Angle controls accordingly. I use it all the time to drip water on things.
