Sumo Paint is a lot like a watered-down version of Photoshop and so we were exploring the possibilities. The two original photos I collected from morguefiles.com which allow you to use the images freely as they are Creative Commons - in the public domain.
I used selections and layers and "painted" this fun old Gel up. As you can see the quality is not perfect as I just chose the default size Sumo Paint offered me, which was not very large. I did not want to get lagged down with a large file.
Definately not near anything I'd offer a client but it does demonstrate the ability to give a painterly effect to a portrait.
And then I worked out this last one, loosely based on a sketch.
So if you like to dabble you might like to give Sumo Paint a whirl! There is a Pro Version for just a few dollars, might be worth it! There are many wonderful brushes and also filters as well, to choose from.
I think I'd still choose the free version of Art Rage if I were to want to actually just paint.
Have YOU painted anything online lately?
I'm also taking Microsoft Office at school too. So thats what I've been up to! There, posted - everyone happy now?
