"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.
