I've got no watercolours to test the pencils with. But I did draw a page of lizards with the GrafCube pencils (3B, 6B, 9B)and Grafwood (6B, 9B).
A curious creator of visual stories. Making Art based on stories about people and creatures. Drawing from ancient tales, through to the here and now. A world full of truth, mystery and lies. I capture their perceptions and how they behave with sincere and satirical illustrations.
I create designs, through a process of photographs to digital or real ink drawings, to silk screen printing, spray cans and paint pens. Switching between stark monochrome or painterly colours that are bold and dramatic. I’m drawn mostly to painting onto wood and screen printing because it delivers a tactile hand finish and I do love the smell of freshly mixed paint.
@Coley Hey Coley, I'd advise using PHLearn as they're straight-forward instructions and if you have Adobe Creative Cloud there are loads of tutorials in the CC menu on there for Photoshop. PHLearn has lots of free stuff on YouTube and their website and PHLearn Pro on monthly subscription.
If you have specific questions I'm happy to give advice on what I know. Obviously its hard to know everything with Photoshop but I know a few things.
@Whitney-Simms Use SELECT colour Range then IMAGE - ADJUSTMENTS replace colour. Use the result box to set your base colour.
You can mask further with quickmask and use a brush or adjust the fuzziness. And select has commands like choose similar, expand smooth and feather.
QUICKMASK for using brushes is SHIFT and Q or SELECT - Edit in quickmask mode. Remember to set the brush to NORMAL in quickmask mode.
@davidhohn yes it's good to see the print. I remembered the story breaking years ago and it taking forever to go through court. One of the reasons I think copyright could do with an update is concluding cases quicker. Do you think making work that is limited editions or original art can have an effect on the outcome, if it goes to court?
These powerful people are blocking others from creating art from what they see and are influenced by in pop culture. To me drawing and taking pictures is the same expression as speaking words from my mouth. They are twisting the law to their ends. Laws are malleable and can be viewed from both sides. DISCLAIMER: I'm not a legal expert and not offering legal advice. Seek out a real lawyer if you get a nasty letter through the post or email box Just my opinion after being financially bullied into not taking action in the past.
This is an important statement for artists to remember:
Professor Diane Zimmerman, one of the nation’s (USA) experts on free expression and intellectual property law, pleased with the appellate court’s decision, said Woods’ suit is an example of recent efforts by celebrities to “expand the reach” of their rights to control and profit from their images. The brief she authored had argued that “overly protectionistic and unduly broad property claims can thwart the creation of new works and damage important First Amendment values.”
