    Believe me... all I ever take out is the graffiti or my " stuff ". I never know if it's a " join in " or a " bug off !"

    mandie this specific problem has been going on for a couple days..i hope it is resolved now. I have written the person and we have an agreement. a once in a while mistake is normal..to have something undone over and over again is intentional.

    You really can't blend ... just find a color in between.I'm a dork at it !!! My first time I hit the erase and felt terrible.!! Did you know you can bring in the " dropper" and pick up the color you want on the screen ?? Any questions ask Smkie !!!

    i just use the big ball to work out my outline..then work dark to light, i have never used the dropper so i dunno..straight lines are the hardest:D i finally found the right hand motion to make a good straight line.. it took awhile to learn to draw with a mouse. ;) here is kinda an example of what i mean


    dang it this link wont work to transfer so if you want to see what i am talking about there is a link in this thread

    grammy i have had more then a running start..for 15 years i drew only with a pencil or pen and ink. It was all i could afford, i loved color but art supplies are so expensive, so i really learned to draw, if all you work in is pencil sigh

    then i worked in etched glass design where i had to think very graphic, two tone to make my images work.

    3 and a half years at the Kansas City ART Institute working on my illustration and design degree didn't hurt a bit either;)

    then photo retouching / portrait artist meant i learned to match my colors fast and what lightened and darkened what..(the hard part to learn) because i did it 12 hours a day for a year. 6 am to 6 pm

    after that began the bells, boxes, rocks that allowed me to work on my painting strengths..(still working on that...sigh...)

    finally i felt ready for canvas

    my favorite qoute is "the life so short the craft so long to learn"

    its sooooo true

    working like this is yahoooo fun hehe...you dont have to mix paint to get the right color, and thinking graphically makes working with as few of colors as possible (but using the very rightest ones :) ) a total blast for me. I can make an image in minutes that with paint would take me oh sooooo much longer, then all the blending:eek:

    what is hard is going back to the grindstone and not sitting here having fun:D
