Breaking from the paper sketchbook and playing around with Painter 10 this time.
There are things about Painter that you can't do very well in Photoshop but at the same time there's tons of things you can do in Photoshop that you just can't do in Painter.
This sketch was just me playing around with the Conte Crayon brush . There are so many tools/brushes in painter that you can spend hours just seeing what each one can do , And that's without making variations of each brush.
I thought it might be interesting to show a progression from initial scribble to full blown Painter doodle. My conclusion is that you break out painter when you want to show a lot of sketchy texture and stroke marks.
