The background on that giftpic was too warm.
So, even though I liked the watercolor effect, it 1. took too long and 2. was too hard to rework. So I scrapped it and went with my old Corel Painter standby, which is the Oil Paints > Wet Brush, and the Oil Pastels.
Ta da! Much prettier! Now I’m off to Photoshop to work on the character. And the rocks. Again.
