Digital watercolor

18 January, 2007

HI everyone, this is my first digital watercolor. It was started in photoshop then in Painter and last finished in photoshop. I figured out that in order to make look as real as possible you have to have real ellements of watercolor in it. I scaned watercolor brushstrokes and I used the colors I found in my real watercolor pallete. Tell me what you think. This image was printed on a watercolor paper 155 times and the dimensions were 14X18.33. I ll try to post my steps in my blog Have fun.

imitating watercolor in photoshop is really a hard task. Thwere's always something there to tell us "yes it looks like... but it is not". In this case I have to congratulate you ¡GREAT RESULT!

Alex, I really like this! The shapes are clear and well put together.The marks you made are loose yet structurally sound.the massive dark shape holds the water and the boats together.
