January 2008 Artistry Tips and Tricks

Topics Covered

The January 2008 issue of Artistry Tips and Tricks shows
how to paint movies in Corel Painter.

The information is from an assignment painting a movie
for producer Austin Formato as part of a contest he
was a finalist in for Coke.

The technical term for painting movies is rotoscoping,
and the process is especially interesting nowadays--
you can bring any video from any digital camera
into Painter as a Quicktime file and rotoscope it.

The steps in the January 2008 issue are also useful
for photographers. So you will find the steps interesting
whether you shoot videos or still images (photos).

Topics covered in this issue include:

*How to turn videos and photos into paintings in Corel Painter
*How to add backgrounds to photos or videos
*How to paint backgrounds
*How to paint in the style of Degas
*How to use Painter's brushes
*How to use Painter's layers
*How to use cloner brushes
*How to use Tracing Paper
*How to get texture in brush strokes
*How to use Painter's movie tools
*Start-to-finish workflow steps

All the interim images are provided alongside the written step-by-step
instructions within the Acrobat file.
