Lesson 5, "Bonus 02 - Cityscapes (9:18 min)," finishes up the training in this DVD by creating a cityscape. Again you will use the techniques that you learned earlier, but now takes on the challenge of knowing what to leave in and what to remove. Here you will again learn subtle techniques that are appropriate for working with city scenes.
Painting For Photographers DVD: Volume 2 - Landscapes really gets to the heart of painting by using Corel Painter. While the work is done using Corel Painter version 12, time is spent addressing the differences in the use of 10, 11, and 12 so any of these version can be used to accomplish the paintings. Again, the photos that are used are included on the DVD as well as the custom brushes that the instructor uses so you can follow along.
There is a bit of a sound balance problem between the interlude music and the voice over so you have to find a balance to where they are not too loud or too soft, but other than that, the quality of the training is very good. One thing that I do like is that you really see the painting being completed in higher speed real time so you get a good feel for the strokes and techniques that the instructor uses.
Painting For Photographers DVD: Volume 2 - Landscapes is available for $199.95 from the Artistry website. If you are looking for a quality DVD training experience using Corel Painter to create works of art from photographs, then I highly recommend Painting For Photographers DVD: Volume 2 - Landscapes.
