Painting Techniques  ON Line Now!!!!

With a powerful new paint engine PSP has V8 power to create!

Designed for both "painters" and "non-painters" this series allows folks to really begin to understand the new "V8" power of brushes and painting modes and encourages them to try some power user features they might otherwise overlook or be intmidated by. Try them and you'll find that you don't have to be a Rembrandt to get results with these techniques! 

Step by step, with lots of screen shots and explanations of the "why" as well as the "how" 

Marigolds and Daisies (Using presets shipped with PSP8)
Lilacs (Creating your own brushes, variances and presets)

PSP8 Has Balls....and Bubbles (coming soon)

When I first saw this new effect, I dismissed it as a parlor trick. I might still be ignoring it if Jasc's Kris Zaklika hadn't grabbed me by the virtual hand and dragged me over and dared me to play with it. Two days later, the potential of this powerful 3-D spherical object generator had finally "clicked" for me and I became obsessed with it for a couple of weeks. A number of the presets that shipped with the final version were inspired by things that I and the other private beta testers came up with in the early months of 2003. I'm sure there will be a 1000 tutorials and presets for this new toy out there rather quickly, so rather than do all the typical things (snowglobes, buttons and doorknobs) I've got 5 off-the-wall uses for this nifty new feature to teach you.
