Evil Oil Look

This painting incorporates some recent ideas discussed on the Studio Artist user forum for generating an oil paint look. This is the evil version of the one i posted on the user forum a few minutes ago.

There is some use of path application repeat index modulation to generate color gradients in the paint strokes. I'm using the new Cycle- Colorful option for the gradient end color, so what it's doing to the color varies from paint stroke to paint stroke.

I'm also using Brush Load Lighting to generate an additional raised look to the paint. And i'm working with positive-negative space auto-selection to control the path start positioning a litle near the end of the paint action sequence that builds this effect up.
