Hi Alexandra,

I like fantasy art as well and I like your image very much. I made this image a while ago for a different thread, but I never got around to posting it. It's not really done yet, but it's close enough at this point to share it.

Hi, I wanted to drop in and show you one of my old drawings from art rage. I love fantasy art and this is a forbidden love between the Forest Elf and the Beetle King

Nice thread Alexandra. What fun to see others interested in this genre. I've been a fantasy geek for decades. :)

Here's a repost of an earlier work.

ChibiJ-Fantastic drawing, I too love Dungeons and Dragons.
Wenkat-Awesome color! I have sooo much to learn.

Alexandra

Julie-that is awesome. I love the planet and the tide.
Wenkat-how do you do this?! These are beautiful.
Mannafig-love unicorns-and the little guy!
Thanks so much you all for your pictures. This was the first time I posted something on my own. It is nice to read the posts and see the incredible art. Everyone here is so positive and friendly.:)
Much love all around, Sandy Alex

I posted this one in the gallery and I suppose it's a stretch to call it Fantasy ..............more like SciFi really but the distinction between the two genres has always been quite blurred to my mind ......anyway it's called the Portal

Alexandra
08-02-2009, 01:26 AM
Peter-that is beautiful! I want to learn more with the digital pen here. I would love to make si-fi pictures. I am always drawing aliens, since I was in grade school, and the teachers could not understand it. I was just having fun:D
Anything that would pop in that short circuited brain of mine would travel to that pencil.
That is just incredible. Thanks for sharing-and I am looking forward to listening to your music and checking out your links.

Alexandra
08-02-2009, 02:19 AM
Peter, your music is beautiful as well as your art! Thank you so much. I am a lover of so many types of music from Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Allison Krause, Big Head Todd, to some rap. I love to sing old Peter Paul and Mary lyrics to my kids.
Thanks so much.
All the best-
Sandy

Fantastic Peter- I love it! But now you have stirred my creative pot, and it has begun to bubble over with hues of blue, yellow, and green....and maybe black..... I will be back soon......
Take good care Peter-have a wonderful weekend and to all who view today!

Fantastic thread! Amazing art and artists! I know of more fantasy artists out there. Hope they join in also. Really a great idea to have this showcase of fantasy art... it has been missing for so long. Great idea! What a fun place to visit. John, I relate very much to that beetle king. poor guy... what a problem.

Alexandra
08-02-2009, 09:36 AM
Hi Gzair-hope to see your images soon. Having a ball here. Hope everyone does not mind my alien. I had teeth and fangs but it was too much-so I made the mouth like this.

I have a few I would like to work on, but I have to get them off of some of my old floppies-ha-that is how old they are.:D
Love to all!

you figure it out, you can have it......... started out in alchemy program/...brought it to artrage to make something of it......I don't recommend doing that..... it seems that using alchemy as a base pic makes the colors fade. Enjoy........

Not sure how I missed this thread but I'm glad I stumbled across it today. I'm a huge fan of fantasy, science fiction, horror, etc in art, literature, movies, TV and whatever...(in fact, those are my areas of specialization as a literary agent) and the works in this thread are a treat. :D

This may be cheating, but I'm posting a work I originally put in the general gallery some time ago (in my defense, I've tweaked it somewhat since then). I'd been working on a detailed landscape (which I eventually finished) when I went off on a tangent, adding four female figures (each, hopefully, suggesting the fantastic) who are busily calling a cloud dragon. Fun stuff...

glad to see there are lots of people in here who like scifi/fantasy! there are wonderful artists here, and i admire your works. i read a lot of stuff in the tips and tricks section of the forums here. :)

i don't want this to come off as spam, cause it ain't, but there is a an community for science fiction and fantasy artists, writers and fans of sci-fi/fantasy art. :) its called "Elftown". i've been a member there for years (name there is also hanhepi) a quick google search will give you the link, since i can't post it. also, there is "Elfwood", but i'm not a member there.

i need more artrage users there to show people what the program is capable of. (i kinda think the people there don't think the program is all that great, but with my stunning examples of art, i can't blame them.)

Alexandra
09-11-2009, 09:49 AM
hanhepi, I will be glad to check it out. Nice to meet you and thanks for posting on this thread.

Silentman
09-11-2009, 09:50 AM
Tell them they don't know what their missing and they ought to come and have a looksy at our gallery :)

hanhepi
09-12-2009, 02:06 AM
i'm glad i didn't get yelled at for mentioning the site. :) lol.

oh, i tell people all the time that even the free version of the program just rocks. it's so much like real painting without the mess. the only thing i don't like about the program is you can't rip the page off crumple it and fling it across the room when you realize you just made crap, not art. lol. i do sorta miss that. you can however scribble all over it, and that is some solace. (and i keep scrap paper by the desk so i can have the crumpling and throwing.)

cartuneman
09-12-2009, 04:00 AM
cool I'll have to check them out........ and you'll have to post your work here:D

Here are a few steps I took in creating this lil fantasy pic of a furrie....(is that how thats spelled ?) anyway I think I may have the finished pic on the site some where I'll have to hunt it down... This entire pic was drawn in art rage and then redesigned in art rage and painted in art rage. (The free sample download that is!) So even with the free sample download you can create some really cool stuff! Thanks Rage Bros!

Chibi J
09-12-2009, 11:26 AM
I think I can class this as fantasy it has fairies in it. My friend said her dog is finding plant pots and chewing them up so I replied it was causing mass fairy homelessness :) So I had to artrage that thought :D This was a speed paint just for my own amusement and a bit of stress release, sometimes an idea just speaks to you and you find they practically put them selves on the screen. :)

Alexandra
09-12-2009, 09:15 PM
Great skill and imagination you have Cartoonman. Fantastic! I love the lion, he makes me think of Aslan. The lady lioness-incredible.
Chibi, that is so sweet. It makes me think of my girls-2 labs and a sheep dog always poking about in the back yard. I haven't grown any flowers except tulips and a wild rose there because the labs are about two, and still big babies.

sandyg

Well done Cartuneman, love the lion and ms Furry, great work.

Stencils are the bomb--it was really easy to make this look like an actual airbrush painting. I'm finding ArtRage to be seriously exciting.

I like your picture. Thanks for posting and sharing your exciting story. There are so many sightings-and unfortunately we can not prove any thing at the moment. I believe that we just cannot be the only ones here in this huge universe-so you can say I am open to it all! :eek:

Wow, that looks like Deathwing, I think that's it's name.
From the new World of Warcraft expansion.
Is it?
(By the way, it's amazing!)

For all who don't know who Deathwing is, here he is: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/cataclysm/
He's the big dragon, obviously! :p

Gryphern
10-11-2009, 11:30 AM
He heeee! I'm getting better at this-- CHECK IT, google books has an old book with TONS of drawings of the veins of different butterfly wings. Search Google Books for "The butterfly book: a popular guide to a knowledge of the butterflies" almost all the sections on butterfly genuses have nueration (vein) diagrams. There's a guide to nueration illustrations in the contents.

I want to paste a direct link, but the forums don't allow me to. You can "snip out" and directly link to images from the text, I can keep a little library of image like this: books.google.com/books?id=w28pAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA242&img=1&zoom=3&hl=en&sig=ACfU3U2e5a9uKupsbzMpef5M8I-3AWEJIQ&ci=271%2C546%2C123%2C294&edge=0

Oh my gosh, I have forgotten to check on the fantasy thread and look!

Weeun: I will have to check into this character, I am drawing a blank. Maybe because of my age. Thanks for your compliment.:)

Gray: Great dragon! :) I guess these terrific effects were finished in the cool software package included with the bamboo, huh?:mad::D Nah, just teasing with you!!! Beautiful dragon! We should draw some JRR characters. I would love to have a go at a Hobbit some time. Uh oh, I think I shall start a new thread!:D

Gray
10-11-2009, 06:35 PM
Heh. Actually, no. That was all 100% artrage. I've just been making an effort to use every tool in every painting to force myself to learn things about the program. It may be working, I'll have to give it a while to really figure out which tools are really useful and which are not so much. I suspect they are all extremely useful, I just have yet to find the ways in which they are most useful.

The bamboo came with corel painter essentials 4, but I honestly don't like it as much as I like AR. I haven't bothered with Nix photo Efects yet, I doubt I will. The art markers in CPE4 are a mess that only produce super dark lines despite all my efforts, the brushes don't do what I want them to do at all, and the pencil only really has precise mode. The only thing CPE4 has that AR doesn't is a good inking tool for graphic cartooning (of which I do enough that I miss it as a feature. AR3 anyone? The layout in 2.5 is simple enough that an idiot could understand it, and there is plenty of room for new features without clogging the overall design. (Perhaps I'm underestimating the true ingenuity of the idiot, but I doubt it.) You can make it a little more complex Ambient people, We'll still love you!) I for one am really looking forwards to AR3, and intend to buy it ASAP.

Alexandra
10-12-2009, 12:38 AM
Yes Gray, AR is fantastic. I ordered the disk, as my computer is old now, and I would like to have the option of loading it on more than one computer. We have our own in this house. Mostly junked one's, but hey they work.. I love to use corel and then import it to AR to use the special effects there, and I love the lay out the best. The textures, and the options of layers are fantastic. I commend the designers on that! If I don't need the masking tools, or paint bucket, I stay in AR all together.
I started out with Corel and adobe about ten years ago I think, and it took me a while to learn how to make adjustments to all of the tools. Once I learned, I loved it. The old corel that came with the original pens was much better Gray. There were so many more options. Why they took this away, I have no idea.
So happy of your contribution on this thread, and for joining AR. All the best to you!

Must be my imagination.
I love it, however. :)

i don't have artrage yet but i plan on getting it soon, i wanted to know if you need a drawing tablet to use it or if it just makes it easier and makes the pictures you draw more detailed.:confused: because if so then i'm gonna have to pay lots more and also i'd like to know if it really matters what kind of tablet i get cause i want to spend the least i can for the tablet thanks!!!! :D

I used the touch pad on my lap top the first month. The nite sky I posted here was done with my fingers. Granted it doesn't hold a candle to some of the work here but that is my failure not ArtRage. When I did get a pad I spent $100 (including tax) on a nice wacom Bamboo. Get the free ArtRage for now but I warn you, I did that and bought the software the same night. Also check out the technical forums. More answers than you will have questions at first and they are VERY good at answering the ones you end up having. Have fun with it! :)

Alexandra
11-02-2009, 04:05 AM
Peter, are you sure he is peaceful? No just kidding, another beauty there.:)
Really nice Teddy.:)

Awesome, I would talk to as many experienced artists here as you can, maybe make a post if you haven't already in the tech area relative to concerns you may have about software. I have enjoyed Artrage software because of the easily accessed and viewed tools, such as the beautiful various types and textures of the paper. The engineers are very helpful and friendly too.
The bamboo comes with the most fantastic software programs also, and I would play with all the tools and the controls to learn it if you don't know them yet. :)

Thank you so much Oriane. I have enjoyed it so much. All of the artists are fantastic! Peter is indeed one of the most fantastic artists. I really enjoy his paintings very much.

I bought Freelancer and haven't tried it myself either. I have not had the time in the last year to play any, and I really used to enjoy it. I am an old Tomb Raider collector and player. I think I have played just about all of them.

I just finished a piece, so I will post it. Process: I used five photos and merged them one at a time, painting behind and over them and applying blends in ArtRage Studio Pro. I was thinking of a crisis point in a story, if it were a fantasy book for kids. [The mother faerie rescues her baby chrysalis from potential night predators, such as the black crow below, just in the nick of tim.]

Caesar, your smushed faerie reminds me of Universal Studios Shrek 4D film, in which Tinkerbell buzzes around the room just when you think the film is over and then appears to fly out through one of the actual ventilation ducts and gets mashed (you can hear the sound, kind of like a Mr. Bill moment LOL). Eww but also kinda funny. :D

I proceeded to a quick sketch I coloured with mixed tools without any planning on one layer. Since it's a funny vignette I hope You would forgive the poor outcome especially considering I used the mouse. :(

Woo! Alexandra, I really like your floating tree! How did you do the leaves?

Landscapes are usually an afterthought for me... I need to practice doing them more. :(

Beautiful work Chuck! I tried to make a space painting, and I need more practice. My planets mostly.

BTCat, Hi there, and thank you. I used the Sticker spray, artbrushes-blooming down in the tool bar on the bottom. I particularly like to duplicate areas and play with the effects offered for the layers.:)

Selection tool > Circle, some imagination (which you have in bucket loads loads from what i've seen) and paint or an image for texture, Selection tool > Circle and paint for light and shadow:)

Okay Chuck, my hubby and kids liked it, but I think the bottom planet is more like a marble. I duplicated the space three times moving it around and expanding and changing the opacity in between the planets. I have to admit, this was a blast to do!:D

I think you were maybe pulling my leg when you stated you needed more practice Alexandra :D

This was the first try since I have learned to use layers Chuck, honest! My planets still look like marbles though.:rolleyes
