Personal Studies in Digital Painting Methods, Part 2

Exploring methods with Clone Stamp painting in Adobe Photoshop. These are personal works using mostly stock images (base image, texture, and stamp shapes), with no directed or obvious ethic other than the technique itself. In my previous work on this topic, there was an intent to mimic traditional media in a period style, but the methods are largely the same. Without trying to sound cynical, I really enjoy this technique because it gives me the illusion of being able to paint. It's kind of like a custom color-by-numbers approach, but with more flexibility. In future explorations, I'll use all of my own assets that will be purpose-built for the particular image or series, but for now I'm just using what I have available to develop the approach. If you're interested in this technique, follow me and send a note - I have no problem sharing :)
