You know, I've decided that Painter 9 and I just aren't going to get along. I'm sure it could do everything I could ask of a digital paint program, but the interface and menus are too damn bloated and complex and badly-organised.
If I do any more of these, I might try doing them hard-copy with markers and pens. Try drawing a reasonably straight line free-hand with a tablet.
I got my copy of Dream Worlds the other day. Ooooooooh. Drool, baby, drool. If you get no other artbook this year, get this one. Hans has finally shown me the light on how to do frame layouts properly.
