Gretchen, 1st of all you need to have Corel Painter. I don't know how much you know about Painter but you need to get to know it first and maybe try Lynda.com and they have few DVD you can try to learn about Painter. Fay Sirkis came out with a DVD but you need to know the basics first. You can paint in Photoshop also but I just don't where to look for this and I don't think it has the same effect. #6153828

Thanks Daiana!!! Have Corel on a trail period and am enjoying it. I'll check out Lynda.com resource!
Have a great week!!! #6154012
