I’m taking a class about the new features of Painter 2017. Using several of the new features, I’ve turned a straight photograph of the Lion’s Head Maple in my backyard to this. Fun stuff.
I’ve been working on this technique for several months. It’s a combination of Lightroom for getting the photograph tuned, Corel Painter to fashion the image, and Photoshop to fine tune the final image. I’m really excited how well this turned out. All the planets must have been aligned just the right way. Click image for larger view.
