Nice one cym! Very well laid out and educational. I'm liking this tips & tricks forum alot. I hope it keeps growing into something of an online AR manual. Very nice contribution cym.

I hope it keeps growing into something of an online AR manual.

Now there's an idea, how about tool specific? Tool by tool some tips 'n Trix.
A thread par tool, and as it grows ,you'll get that massiveAR manual...
Pity I'm a bit low on time :(

cym, that was lovely, thank you. And to think you do this all with a trackball. Those of you who have "it" create masterpieces with whatever rudimentary tools you have at your disposal, while those of us who don't wait for the right tool to come along and turn us into artists. Har. =]

In awe,

Hanz, I know I could use several tool tips. Just wanted to say I enjoyed your site very much, you really know how to capture people!

Gita, I think I just fake having "it" now and then. The compliments still make me feel darn good though, thanks.

Hi Cym,
Just in case you look in here any time soon, I have just been through your 'basic tutorial' and absolutely loved it.

I have been using ArtRage for a couple of years but only today have I looked at the tutorials and tried out yours.

Thanks for going through it in such clear detail. I see you were using a mouse which makes it all the more amazing. I liked your method of laying down lots of paint first. It worked well.

I see you haven't posted since August. Possibly a busybee without too much time to play. So I hope you see this post! :D
