Offset Sampling – Two videos from my Painter 12 Class.


Hello Everyone,

The first session of my class, Painter 12, A New Beginning, just ended and registration for the second session is now open at the Digital Art Academy. Click on Registration Page to register.  The second session begins August 27, 2011 and ends September 23, 2011.  I hope to see a you there.

As a teaser, I am adding two more videos from the class.  The subject is Offset Sampling, which has been added to the Clone Source Panel.  It offers some unique ways to clone, and also can mimic the way you cloned in Painter 11.  I created most of this image during the videos, but added later.

 “It’s not nice to tease,” Kevin comments.
 
“Viruses are not nice, either.  Remember, I found out what you really are!”
 
“A very good virus; not a bad virus.  I’m like Glenda from the Wizard of Oz.  She is a good witch; not a bad witch.  I told you that already,” he corrected.
 
“Whatever, I’m busy.  Go away and don’t bother me.”
 
Sorry for the interruption.  In the following two videos, you will see how to clone with offset sampling.  The above image wasn’t completed during the videos.  I didn’t do much more, but later I will explain the few things that I did to arrive at the final piece.  These videos come from week four of the class, so you may think I am going over stuff pretty quickly, but remember we have already covered a great deal up to this point and I can up the pace for the students.   I hope you enjoy the videos.  BTW, I had a little static in a couple of places.  I’m not sure where it is coming from; I probably bumped the microphone or something similar.
 
 
 
After finishing the videos, I decided to do a little more to the image, which consisted of duplicating the top layer 3 times and playing with the composite method of each layer.  The other layers that were made, also had composite method changes and I tweaked the opacity slider a bit more.  And that was it.  I do enjoy working with offset sampling; I think it is a power but underused tool for Painter.
 
Well, that’s it for this post.  If you have questions of comments, please do make them.
 
Enjoy,
