Hello again, so glad you could find a
minute to spare to play with me a bit
and learn about graphics.
I am creating these new tut's for
"postwork" for poser renders, but
you do not have to use them just for that.
They are good basic techniques that could
be useful for any image.

That said....lets begin!

__________________________________________________

Here is my untouched photo, shrunk down a bit.
This one actually rendered well, and is a "usable" image with
little cleaning up, but of course... what fun is that?

Her clothes are a bit big, the left shoulder is sticking up and
her hair is growing into her arm. I fixed those things,
but they will not be in this one. Lets save that for another
learning tutorial to come!

Today I want to show you how to give your renders
"jazz" "spunk" "sparkle" and the "ooooohhhhhh" factor.
I was thinking of these things when I named this one.
"Color Me Brilliant".....lol....not that the title fits me!

First we are going to work on the "color" part.
So many characters we make or purchase have
so many wonderful makeup choices and eye shades.
But there will always be one or two that when it is all
said and done, you wish you could just change _________?

Thisis an amazing and very rewarding tutorial. Thank you very much. I have been using PSP for years and had no idea it could be used this way.

well I dont know why there are no comments, at least a thank you. I've had PSP9 for about six months now and thought I knew all the tools, but I never used the sharpen tool! That's magic, thanks for the tip! and thanks for the tutorial. Leonie ;-]
