Daily Deviation

Given 2010-08-22
The portraits that `johnpaulthornton does with deviantART :devmuro: have an amazingly soft and dreamy quality about them. The backgrounds have a bokeh as if they were made with a high quality camera lens. The colors he uses are tasty - he works odd blues and greens into shadows that serve to accentuate the warmth of the light and bring a touching life to the portraits.

May I ask, can you up-loade line art and color them with Muro?

I do not know for sure. I think it is now possible... but i have never tried it. it certainly was not a possibility in the early trial days of muro, when I did this piece. This was don freehand, from life.
