Playin' with Painter

This is a caricature of Mike Huckabee I'm working on to sharpen up my Corel Painter skills (which are non-existent because this is the first time I've really used it).

I started out with a rough sketch, and imported it into the program.

When I started out, I thought it was a pretty good caricature, but as I've been adding color, I've noticed some things are out of whack. So, I don't really care now if it doesn't look like him, I'm just practicing.

Here's stage #2, with some color blocked in with a wet media oil color brush. This is actually pretty fun. More later as the image develops.
