View Full Version : Prehistoric Phish

06-28-2006, 06:31 PM
I ran into this Artrage program by accident the other day, and I'm loving it!! It's so afordable and does wonders for all it's worth. Much props the the creators of this wonderful painting program.

I've seen some great work from artists of many levels in this forum. I'm not online that much... just to check email and the likes... But I'll return and make comments on these forums lovely works.

I got so excited about painting w/ this new tool that my old childhood obsession w/ prehistoric life came out of me on this one. My instinctive interpretation of a prehistoric fish.


Hope you all enjoy! Cheers!

Wow, that's really just stunning. I'm trying to think of something useful to say in response, but I'm afraid that my brain is nearly shut off at the moment. Might come up with something in the morning, who knows.

Love it though -- anything that looks like it could rip limbs from a human easier than I can snap my fingers is cool in my book.

Welcome Digitalpops,

Would like to see more...

digitalpops, Yeah, this works really well.Nice loose style. The color palette is appropriate to the subject. Use of the black lines emphasise the action and movement. Great program for the price eh? Wonderful group of people here as well......

Have you studied Ictheology? (just wanted a chance to use that word, probably misspelled!)

I hope these don't show up at the Jersey Shore!

You definitely gave that guy a strong predator personality.

Hi digitalpops - Welcome to the forums.
I really like that painting - the dark muted colours suit the fish very well. I look forward to seeing more from you.

Heya, digitalpops, welcome to the forums! It's a good thing you found ArtRage and us, and decided to spend a little bit of your online time with us, else I wouldn't have gotten to see this really cool piece. Like Fashmir, I'm a big fan of what he has called Paleo-art, and this is great stuff. I really love that clear definition provided by the black lines, and hand-drawn border inside the edges of the canvas really fits the piece. Thanks for sharing your work, I look forward to seeing more of it.
