    you sure know how to draw sir. I love the sillhouette image with the pendant. Great atmosphere there. Is it just me or is that character getting older?

    Holy crud! Welcome back dude. Your sketches look awesome. Especially with the Paintstop workovers. Was cool to see you in the demo vid too

    Hey Etcher, just saw the thumbnail.
    You make it clear that PaintStop is very powerful.
    I love all your studies and sketches. GREAT WORK!
    Thanks for the warning -- it is very addictive indeed.
    In fact, I`m so PaintStop obsessed that I`ve had a dream about it. *LOL*

    CrazyMatt: thanks Matt, glad u like and thanks for dropping me a line! Regarding your question: I scanned a blank page of my sketchbook, I created a new Paintstop document of the same pixel dimensions and resolution as the scan, then I used the Tracing button to load the image into PaintStop (Tracing->Load Image), then, I did a Merge with Canvas (Tracing-> Merge with Canvas).Best would be to merge the image with the bottom layer and draw/paint on the top layer because, when you draw straight onto the merged image and then use the eraser, you’ll erase the image of the sketchbook page too. Let it sink in and give it a try – you’ll love it! Looking forward to your PaintStop experiments!

    Maxinkuk: Hey Max! Thanks for stopping by and the awesome comment man! Yeah, I love working with traditional charcoal and conté and I have to say, PaintStop gave me nearly the exact same feel. Take time to play some pore Max, you’ll see that PaintStop is a top product, describing it as a plug-in wouldn’t do it justice! You’ll understand that I’m anxious to see what you come up with in the next few days!

    Intervain: Magdalena, I cannot thank you enough for this awesome comment, you know what it means to me coming from an artist like you. Strange isn’t it: the silhouette image was one of the first images that came to mind when I first launched Paintstop; all those great brushes at my fingertips, and I’m coming up with this simple silhouette…. Regarding it’s meaning, well, it’s not Axl… it is The Omen… .Big thank you for commenting on these drawings, You are a great painter, so, needless to say that I’m looking forward to your PaintStop works!

    Mutte696: no worries Maarten, didn’t lose my Z-force! I worked out some new characters using PaintStop, and I will sculpt them in the next weeks to come! Hey, I saw your new updates in the turntable gallery, man that DeathTank is a classic! Thanks for stopping by man, I hope to see some PaintStop work of you soon!

    Captain Sensible: Hey Chris, thank you man! I’ve got some more PaintStop work comin’ up in the next few days-lemme’know what you think! Am so proud to be in the demo vid! PaintStop is great Chris, free up some time to give it a serious test spin, you won’t ever look back!

    Yona: Yes Cédric! The update! Yeez man, how many weeks has it been? So glad I could post! Thanks for the great comment!Regarding PaintStop: it is excellent, you have to free up time to work with it, it will be so rewarding, especially because you love to work with traditional media. If ZBrush felt comfortable to you, I’m sure that PaintStop will give you the same feeling right away: I’m looking forward to your TTM updates; throw in PaintStop to do some color testing, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Hey man, congratz on the contest outcome, lookin’forward to seeing some pics of the print. !

    SolidSnakexxx: Hey Yong, so glad you’re dropping me a line and the motivating comment! Yes, PaintStop is so cool! Yong, You made such a beautiful painting “Thai painting on ZBrush”, you absolutely have to try out PaintStop, you’ll love it, and I’m looking forward to see what you come up with! Hope to hear from you soon Yong! !

    Jbuck: thanks a bunch man, stay tuned for some more! Josh, looks the friendly people at Pixologic awaited your return to ZBC to release PaintStop… you know what this means…but then again, I’m just as curious as they are to see what you come up with… .

    Jonnyd’artiste: JONNY!!!! YOU GOTTA’ TRY PAINTSTOP!!!!! IT’S INSANE!!!!! And, I really want to see what weird stuff you dream up with it!!!!Thanks for the awesome comment buddy! Looking forward to your new stuff!

    Marsyas: thank you Geoff… I know… finally… I’m so glad! Thanks for your ongoing support Geoff !

    Skulll_monster: Many, many thanks Majid, glad u like! Say, a few posts back in your thread, you did a beautiful portrait of a young woman, with these skills, you gotta’ try PaintStop: you’ll be amazed at how well it performs, I would so love to see you work with it!

    Moni-poroni: thank you moni! PaintStop is total power! Thanks for the ongoing support and motivating comments girl! I’m so glad you didn’t stop pushing me! Haha! PaintStop dreams, that’s great, don’t forget to write them down in your Zdiary, might be useful for some crazy sculpt or painting.
    Hope you can find the time to post some Wip shots of the beautiful PaintStop images you made. So, Moni, where’s the update? .

    THANKS EVERYBODY! ENERGY LEVELS BOOSTED TO THE MAX!
    Next update: probably tomorrow… .

    Intervain: you're not as ignorant as you think you are, you'll see... .Say, Magdalena, you are not a great painter eh, would you mind telling me who painted those 2d works on your website, cause those are made by a great painter... ! Thanks for the support!

    sshark: hey Josh, thanks for taking the time to drop me a line and nice comment! Glad u like! Say Josh, me being a fan of those over the top series like CSI and Bones - I loved seeing your work on the mummy and the victim reconstructions on your website. Maybe PaintStop could be of great use there to for doing the overpaints etc. Would love to see that! !
