Draing of lily

There are plenty of ways of using Topaz Labs filters to enhance your artwork.
I started using Simplify to smooth out jpeg artifacts in my images.

In this sample, Simplify rescued a bad coloured pencil drawing I did years ago on a Crayola Doodle Pad.

I got hooked on a one month trial and decided to take the whole photography bundle. I just upgraded for the new options.

See what Topaz simplify can do for you:
One month or save 30% if you buy

Line Impressions

Veins created with line impressions

One of the best articles I’ve read about Painter is how it helps to know how to use the actual media. To fine-tune my drawing skills, I’m back to pencils and paper. I’ve already noticed a difference in my drawings with iPad apps.
Over the years, I’ve accumulated lots of material, which includes books. I learned the Line Impression Technique in Drawing and Painting with Colored Pencil by Kristy Ann Kutch . I used an embossing tool to impress the lines for the veins in my own drawing on Fabriano Sketch paper. Compared to my first few lame attempts this is a great improvement.
