Just barely, but still, hope you like my efforts. I have some more pictures , the only thing is...where the did I put them ?:D

12-02-2009, 04:34 AM
Gooood Morning Hanzz! Amazing collection. I really like what the watercolour adds to your style too.

12-02-2009, 04:41 AM
These are some tries, to see if AR3 could do some basic Photoshopping...OK, let's call it RAGING ! I raged these together as proof that it could be done, mind you, not every picture is finished There are W.I.P.'s amongst them, still it is to show off the capabilities.

This program will knock your socks off !!

12-02-2009, 04:51 AM
Thanks for sharing these images. Really shows off the potential with the tools in the hands of a master.

12-02-2009, 04:52 AM
Hey there Hanzz - these are great great great. Go find all that other terrific stuff and post it. It's all too darn good to deprive all the eyes coming here to see it. You're top drawer all the way and these pieces are just the bees knees. :):):):):):)

12-02-2009, 04:55 AM
Fabulous work Hanzz, can wait to see all those tools in the everyone's hands, and you're showing them all that they can aspire to. YAY< Great stuff ^Up^

12-02-2009, 05:02 AM
Just amazing portraits. Great to see the program in your hands.

12-02-2009, 05:39 AM
more of the same....

12-02-2009, 06:50 AM
Your caricatures are absolutely masterful Hanzz, And then you go on to show us how you are a master of many other aspects of ArtRage too.

12-02-2009, 06:53 AM
That chocolate cake looks good enough to eat! Yum, yum

12-02-2009, 07:15 AM
Don't you bite my screen you !!!:mad:

Thanks everyone ! Dmerchen, you'll love the airbrush !

12-02-2009, 10:46 AM
Always amazing Caricatures Hanzz :)

Thanks for painting this one of my boys for me for Christmas :D

12-02-2009, 11:13 AM
wonderful artwork Hanzz!:)

12-02-2009, 11:26 AM
Hanz outstanding work. And as Nick said : "Your caricatures are absolutely masterful Hanzz, And then you go on to show us how you are a master of many other aspects of ArtRage too." Congratulations.

12-02-2009, 12:18 PM
Ha..ha. Like your title. It's great to see you again, Hanzz and finally see your awesome caricatures paintings from AR3. Wow, Morgan Freeman and The Pope look so realistic. Also interesting to see how you work on those photos, hope you can posted the finished versions later.

12-02-2009, 02:02 PM
Wonderful additions Hannz. Amazing artist. This is like a big celebration party. Pass the champagne. I think the guys will have to wait a bit more. :)

12-02-2009, 03:15 PM
Clap, clap, clap, clap! I love your caricatures Hanzz, especially the ones of Morgan Freeman and Alfred Hitchcock. :)

12-02-2009, 06:00 PM
Thanks ,everyone.
About the Photo-Raging pictures...it is my intention to make them step by step pictures. I only have to work out different themes,because some are built on existing pictures.

12-02-2009, 07:13 PM
Fabulous work as always Hanzz
Your style of character is always exceptional, but after viewing all of these i've come away with a craving for chocolate cake (it looks so good) :)

12-02-2009, 08:01 PM
Hanzz- I'm left grinning from ear to ear when I peruse your collection. Your caricature images are crazy good. I love how you went right into the new tools with them and expanded into your other experiments. There is so much more we can do now without having to leave AR Studio and you've shown that very nicely. AR3 in the hands of Hanzz!!! :D:D:D

12-03-2009, 07:04 AM
LOL, Thanks Fashmir.

to make you guys all amazed...
Like there are stickers to paste everywhere, one can also create stickers to PAINT !
Examples up to now are best known as the fashmir fur stickers.

The Morgan freeman picture in this thread is ENTIRELY done with stickers ! It is easily created, and lot's of fun !:cool:

Paint like you do in real life...here is the start of the painting...

12-03-2009, 07:47 AM
Hanzz, you are too fantastic. Great demo. :)

12-04-2009, 03:44 AM
Just found this one.... a combination of stencil with a stickerbrush containing the characters of the word "ARTRAGE"

12-04-2009, 06:00 AM
Wonderful Hanzz. Great example of the variety of possibilities. :):)

12-04-2009, 12:34 PM
Hanzz, thanks for showing the Morgan Freeman sketch and the happiest thing is you said was made with the new sticker tool. Those brush strokes, to me, look exactly like Painter strokes I saw in some members' paintings. I LOVE those brush strokes !!! :D

12-04-2009, 05:56 PM
Dear Pai, it was a 'brushtip' I designed out of multiple bitmaps, to make it as natural as possible , and it will be included in the new AR3.
Other testers made some too.
;)My guess is you'll love this from the first stroke.;)

12-04-2009, 06:48 PM
wow - your caracitues are amazing. impressinve work. what slkill, and a great sense of humor. ;):cool::)

12-05-2009, 03:02 AM
Convert your family to a painting with the sticker tool tracing possibilities.:D

12-05-2009, 03:12 AM
The face made with text is a stunner hanzz... the way it breaks up and becomes scaled up letters, magnificent :):cool::eek:
The sticker tool tracing idea is truely original and creative :)

12-05-2009, 06:41 AM
very cool Hanzz! I love playing with font characters as stickers. It is going to be a great feature in ar3 to use text as a brush.
Much fun. I like your man of letters. :)

12-05-2009, 08:40 AM
Wow, this is crazy stuff. Will you be doing a few small tutorials? Interesting one, this last post of yours and the sticker tracing. Hmm....isn't it close enough to Christmas. We want to play too...:rolleyes::rolleyes:

12-05-2009, 02:46 PM
;)My guess is you'll love this from the first stroke.;)

You don't have to guess..I already LOVE them..even feel my first stroke of it...ha..ha.

There is some really good work in here - professional - so self assured. Beautiful, and with wonderful humor. :)

12-05-2009, 04:18 PM
Can't you just hear the whimpering throughout Art Rage land. The possibilities seem endless and looking at your masterful paintings just makes the wait till the release of AR3 so looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong!!! :(:cool::D

12-05-2009, 06:18 PM
Juice: The sticker tool has possibilties we don't even know yet. We scratched the surface...

Irishrose: No need to drool, go for it ,and surprise yourself.

gzairborne: Thanks man, The letters and the background could heve been coloured too...that would have really been something....

Dmerchen: I am working on tutorials as we speak. You know yet what you'll ask santa to give you ? I haven't got a clue yet...Maybe nice warm socks?

Pai : Say goodbye to long nights, you'll be burning the midnight oil soon ! This ArtRage 3 is soo addictive. I cannot use Painter anymore. Just doesn't feels right. AR3 is soo easy and such fun to use.....

Ann Timmy: Feel free to loose the words so self-assured. I'm happy to find at least some people like my hasty scribbles ;):D

Bobby: The day is coming soon. When the wait is over, you will have a blast. Make sure to show me some of your afforts.

12-06-2009, 02:56 PM

LOL you are a riot! Your work is awesome Hanzz!

12-07-2009, 05:52 AM
Keith came up awesome :cool::):cool:... you could also do them based on theme stickers eg/ keith done from old cigger packs and booze labels (rumpled like he is of course) :D

12-07-2009, 06:08 AM
Evart: thanks a lot !
Juice: If I would do that, I would reveal the only thing that ArtRage cannot do... Smell,scent ! Though in this case I wouldn't miss it much....

12-07-2009, 06:12 AM
Lmaorof :D:D
It would certainly make you be more particular about who you painted up i'd imagine :D:)

12-07-2009, 08:07 AM
Yeah, sitting in front of some peeps I'm drawing could make me high.. or drunk..... or sick....

But I don't do much politicians lately...:eek:

12-07-2009, 08:21 AM
And to conclude the series of teasers, with a great line.... La Vita e Bella

I couldn't have said it better.....
Thanks to the ArtRage Team for a Super Fantastic piece of software.
I wouldn't dream of using something else anymore !

It's that most wonderful time of the year.... May the Christmas tree hold a special software package ;):p (for you !)

12-08-2009, 03:38 AM
I always knew there was something suspicious about that particular reindeer.

12-08-2009, 07:45 AM

I have loved your work since I started visiting this site. Your AR3 stuff is superb!

12-08-2009, 08:00 AM
Thanks, Byroncallas and Peabody00

12-08-2009, 10:48 AM
dear Hanzz, I find it very interesting to use stickers like Photoshop brushes, just as you did on numerous caricatures lately. But I have to ask something I'm very curious of: can you set stickers to blend color like a painter tool? I would say no. But I hope I think wrong. :)

12-08-2009, 11:33 AM
LOL these are great Hanzz:):) I can't wait to get AR3 I WANT IT NOW!!!!!!:D:D

12-08-2009, 07:27 PM
can you set stickers to blend color like a painter tool? I would say no. But I hope I think wrong

In these examples I made a brushtip that is able to mimic this.You can paint very transparent for the colors to blend.
And there is always the blending-knife to do blending too, but I never used that tool in my paintings.

12-08-2009, 10:13 PM
Hanzz, you were STALKING me on WetCanvas today. Naughty boy!
Am I noddy or not héhéhéh...

I was looking at the digital part of the forum to see if it was any use to spread the word about ArtRage ....... Not..... I made a post with a painting of mine, few looked at it, few browse the forum. Looks like the real life type of art is the only art over there.....
Maybe I'll look for another one.....

12-08-2009, 11:01 PM
I know I said to stop it...But encountered a picture I couldn't resist having fun with.....(haven't I said this before ?)

I ask you, Is ArtRage Studio Fun or is it fun ?

12-08-2009, 11:40 PM
And to conclude the series of teasers, with a great line.... La Vita e Bella
These are great, Hanzz. I want a go!

12-09-2009, 03:32 AM
Thanks a ton to you... A single Idea initiated can get wonderful results. N yes u r the Initiative... Wonderful.. We are gonna walk at your path N of course ur sense of painting and creativity is gonna help us a lot ...


12-09-2009, 06:52 AM
Jeepers creepers Hanzz - your caricatures are masterful! :D

12-09-2009, 11:24 AM
Joe Paris: go for it ! You'll live ArtRage3 every stroke you lay down on a canvas..

Sweetpulp : Thanks a lot! too much honour...

IrishRose : Noddy's not bad !

Rowena : Thanks ! Jeepers creepers?

12-10-2009, 10:36 AM
These are Masterful Hanzz! This thread has given me a huge smile today!:D

12-10-2009, 10:37 AM
Rowena : Thanks ! Jeepers creepers?

jeepers creepers from the song - meaning eyes wide with amazement...something like this :eek: but without the shock ;)

12-11-2009, 01:43 AM
We, on the beta testing team, have a duty to find as many bugs as possible, to ensure you all get a decent program.
Here is the latest bug I found ! Bug are getting rare these days...especially the lady bugs.Should I say : "LADY RUGS"?

12-11-2009, 01:50 AM
Fabulous Hanzz. Now cook him and eat him.
Delicious. :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

12-11-2009, 01:20 PM
LOL..ha..ha. That "bug" made me laugh as well as Byron's response.:D

12-19-2009, 12:40 PM
OMG Hanzz, Betty Davis is awesome!! :cool::eek::cool: Now i'm humming that song '...she's got Betty Davis eyes...' lucky for you theres no sound on the forum :D
The wirey hair is fabulous, the new tools, applied to your work... showstopper :eek::):)

12-19-2009, 04:50 PM
Hanzz, that is just too darn fantastically wonderful and wild. GREAT piece of work. Funny as all get out - a marvelous execution, a great caricature if there ever was one - you nailed dead center. :):)

D Akey
12-19-2009, 06:01 PM
That is the most Baby Jane pick of her that I ever care to see. She has Betty Davis eyes. She scared the holy bejeezus out of me when I was about 10 yo in Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte. . . which I didn't know was a comedy until I saw it at 40 or so. The thought of the movie held me in terror all those years. Slept with the light on for 30 long years.

Hahaha. Brilliant Hanzz!!!!!!!

In fairness though, she was very pretty once. (My therapist told me to re-frame that experience. She was attractive. . . she was nice. . .she was sweet. . .she was attractive. . .she was nice. . .)

12-19-2009, 06:42 PM
Thanks everyone.
All the tools I used are at your hands, so go for it and give it a try.
The stickers I used for the hair, are in the 'hair and fur' section of the sticker tool. The airbrush was used for all other parts. The background layer blurred once.

This drawing,and a bunch of others, would be used (if all goes well) in a new restaurant in Portugal. :)

Oh, and Dakey: she's ugly as the night. period

12-19-2009, 09:53 PM
Wow. That is amazing Hanzz!

12-20-2009, 12:52 AM
Dear Master Hanzz, I humbly bow in awe and respect in front of Your top class talents!:eek::eek::eek::cool::cool::cool::):):)
Thanks a lot for sharing.

12-20-2009, 12:58 AM
:eek::eek::eek::eek: I really like this last one. Amazing. :)

Everybody seemed to like my chocolate cake in the first post. So here is a whole pie !

04-26-2010, 07:08 AM
Something completely different now.

This is a bit hard for me.

My dad passed away ,and yesterday was the funeral. I had the honour of drawing the cover of the guide for the funeral myself in ArtRage 3. I could do something with what I'm best at...drawing with ArtRage.

My dad was a man of the nature, his garden with vegetables, flowers, fruits, walks in the forest......and we (my brother, 2 sisters,and mom) decided to let this be a red line throughout the funeral service. So I took a picture of the apple blossoms that start too bud now. I kept it small and drew up the rest of the drawing,which served in turn for the start of text on the small booklet.

My sisters are wizards with words, and together we we made it work. And it worked ! It touched everyone in the service.

I'm really not sure if I should even be posting this, so in the coming days, it's possible that I will remove the picture,and this post....

04-26-2010, 07:10 AM
So sorry for your loss! Our thoughts are with you and your family in this difficult time. All the best!

04-26-2010, 07:34 AM
My deepest sympathies for your loss hanzz -- the tribute is wonderful. I hope you will keep it up as a reminder to us all that art has many uses, memorials being one.

04-26-2010, 07:39 AM
I'm so sorry for your loss Hanzz.:( This tribute of love from you and your siblings is a beautiful way to honor a much loved father.

04-26-2010, 09:27 AM
My heart goes out to you Hanzz as I can so clearly remember that feeling of such loss.
The tribute is wonderfully painted.
My thoughts are with you and your family

04-26-2010, 10:11 AM
Hannz, my condolences. Oriane Lima.

04-26-2010, 10:49 AM
I had no idea that AR3 had those capabilities of "RAGING". Blew my mind...still a little stunned in a very good way :D

04-26-2010, 11:13 AM
Hi Hanzz, the thread is fantastic. Have to come back to take a look at the paintings again.

So sorry to read of you loss. My thoughts are with you.

04-27-2010, 06:28 PM
sorry to hear that. my thoughts are with you.

04-27-2010, 09:39 PM
Condolences, dear friend! I'm grateful for Your sharing Your sad event, Your thoughts and Your artful tribute as it used to happen since ancient times to express a love crossing the "boundaries".

04-27-2010, 11:36 PM
I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies as well Hanzz. Your painting is a beautiful and thoughtful tribute to your father.

04-28-2010, 04:16 AM
I wish you the best.

You have so many outstanding images to view.

05-03-2010, 11:19 PM
Thanks, thanks so much.

To chear myself up (no, because my Intuos 3 broke down) I bought myself a Cintic Tablet.

I hope I can share some new stuff with you all. I just love this community.

Thanks again, all of you.

A beautiful and touching tribute to your Dad

much love to you Hanzz.............. thinking of you here matey .........

05-04-2010, 06:50 AM
Thanks, Mates.

Had this one lying around my disk, gathering dust...I did most of it in the early Beta testing stages of AR3 .
I was browsing my references ,and this one was almost finished, so I finished it now.

No need to tell anyone I enjoy using my new Wacom tablet?:D:D:D

You mean this Isn't the Young Einstein?!

Yeah, as if Einstein was young once !.... huh !

Another person that was young once , long ago.... was this babe.....

Brigitte Bardot:eek:. Great Hanzz

05-22-2010, 08:34 PM
Thanks, I don't have much time these days to do things like this, but I'm trying to get used to working with a cintiq. After years watching the screen, you have to NOT look up, and look at your hands whilmst drawing....pfff !!
Stupid , I know, but it's different to use:D.

05-23-2010, 02:56 PM
Hanzz fantastic new portraits,yes I see the cintiq would take some time to adjust too and then your hand is in the way again?! lol;)
Looks like you are doing well with it.:)

05-24-2010, 11:40 PM
it's so happy to see your works again, hanzz. and i love steven spielberg's works. so alive in every caricature you painted. thos wrinkles and hairs are awesome details. excellent and pro work as usual. thanks for posting it. :)

05-28-2010, 09:21 AM
Thanks SCP and Pai , thanks very much.

05-28-2010, 10:09 AM
I love these Hanzz they really make me smile an outstanding display of talent and humour:):)

06-01-2010, 07:07 AM
It could be a while before I post another caricature. I'll stay on the forum, but I won't be posting much pics....
Here's one more...I could be editing this one shortly, as I'm not too happy with the contrasts. I intend to correct it one day, and print on a big canvas.:cool:

08-28-2010, 03:41 AM
Hanzz. No words. My jaw dropped. wonderful work.

08-28-2010, 05:20 AM
Thanks Ilustre, followed the link to your blog, really nice.

08-28-2010, 06:51 AM
sorry to hear of your loss Hanzz. The new portraits are brilliant. Spielberg, Bardot and Keith Richards. all excellent.

08-30-2010, 08:54 PM
Thanks GZairborne.
I still don't get much to painting digital...
Here's one I'm working on now...hope to finish him someday soon.
It is on and off working, when I find the time......IF I find the time...:cool::cool:

09-04-2010, 06:38 PM
Time for a little celebration today. We (my wife and I) are married for 25 years. We have a party later today with the whole family.....
Couldn't sleep anymore this morning, so at 06.00 in the morning I started finishing of this Danny Trejo caricature.
I am happy with how it turned out, though it's not one of my better works. stil...I hope you enjoy it. It is only posted here on this forum. Nowhere else.:cool::cool:

09-04-2010, 07:41 PM
Those are sweet!! The character is dead on!

09-04-2010, 09:12 PM
Ziet er weer goed uit Hans
en nog gefeliciteerd met jullie Zilveren huwelijksdag
Had zelf mijn bronzen(8) afgelopen week.


09-04-2010, 09:25 PM
Congratulations and have a wonderful day Hanzz, wonderful picture too.:)

09-05-2010, 04:13 AM
Thanks Guyjin, Haako, and Coops:)

09-06-2010, 12:41 PM
Hanzz your works are getting better and better:eek:. Your technique is perfect. A pleasure to watch. Congratulations.

09-06-2010, 09:48 PM
Trying some new things. Canvas and stickerbrush of MisterPaint. and blending with knife from Andrea. touched up with airbrush.

09-06-2010, 11:29 PM
I'm absolutely in awe once again in front of Your unlimited, perfect capture, morphing and finishing capabilities of any feature and character, dear Hanzz!

09-06-2010, 11:41 PM
Thanks ceasar

09-07-2010, 04:05 AM
found some extra time, and tried some stuff the "MisterPaint-way"... still got a lot to learn though....

need to read the step by step post again for the use of the flat knife. this is done without the knife, and immediately with the airbrush. hairs with the hair and grass stickerbrush from the Mr Paint set of brushes.Find them here (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29804) ,they are fabulous !!

09-07-2010, 09:40 AM
Gosh Hanzz the way you paint eyes is stunning. Love the last two paintings:)

09-07-2010, 12:05 PM
Have you ever done a hair tutorial? because your rendering of hair is just impeccable. well all are genial. I love the luminosity and shininess of that one of just the eyes and nose, but I do not know who it is, but it is brilliant as are all of these.

09-07-2010, 01:52 PM
Pure Awesomeness Mate :eek::cool::)
Nice to see how easily you adapted misterpaints method to your fabulous style.... Amazing
That Jack Black one really captures his personality... brilliant. :D

09-08-2010, 02:50 AM
Thanks Cooops, Juice and Gzairborne.
I won't be making any tutorials shortly, but there's some tuts on the way soon. None about hairdressing though... sorry...

09-08-2010, 03:27 AM
Well I'm not the 1st, nor will I be the last to say this Hanzz, but your work is awesome, such skill. Love the caricature of Morgan Freeman on the first page.

09-08-2010, 03:42 AM
Thanks shrunkendesigner.
Love to do some more, but time is not on my side in this...

09-08-2010, 03:48 AM
Really like the hair of the latest. Wonderful work!:)

09-08-2010, 04:04 AM
Jasminek, thank you

09-08-2010, 09:30 AM
Hanzz this last one is fabulous his grin is perfect:):)

09-08-2010, 04:36 PM
Your caricatures never failed to impress and have always been the apple of our eyes. Good Luck!:)

09-09-2010, 01:34 AM
Thanks so much, Mannafig and Wenkat

09-09-2010, 06:07 AM

09-09-2010, 06:31 AM
Great additions Hanzz, especially like Spielberg and Jack Black . :D:D:D:D

09-09-2010, 06:33 AM
Thanks Belvrog and Boxy.

10-08-2010, 08:28 PM
Some of my tutorials are, together with those of Sweedie and Andrea, on the tutorials page of the ArtRage website.One of them is the making of Fashmir....boy was that a fun process.

10-31-2010, 12:24 AM
Thanks John.
Here's a Belgian musician, Arno. Famous in Belgium and France, mainly places with a heavy nightlife, and bars....lots of bars....:D:D

This is done to try my hand at oilbrushes. Brush and knife provided by forummember Andrea.

10-31-2010, 12:35 AM
Awesome work :O

10-31-2010, 01:18 PM
ah c'mon! could you make Juliette a bit more lovely? She is such a gorgeous woman. Seems a travesty to see her treated so unkindly. :)
The latest of Arno is fantastic!!!

11-04-2010, 12:50 AM
I'm with Albert considering that, notwithstanding the usual perfection of all Your caricatures (Arno is another absolute jewel here), Your treatment of Juliette Binoche maybe doesn't match the imaginary vision most of us generally have of her, a lady full of a considerable, though discrete, charm ... :D

11-04-2010, 01:08 AM
WOW Hanz I'm always impressed about the works you made
specialy love the painting you did of Arno! its a caricature and its not (my 0,02€)
One day I gone contact you, we don't live that far from eacht other (I live in Tiegem, Anzegem)
I want to see you live at work and shoot some questions at you :)

Greetings and Keep going!

11-06-2010, 06:25 AM
Tiegem is only bike-distance ! We can meet sometimes.... I'll contact you when I have a commission in the region.

About the Binoche -caricature, it was done for a forum of caricaturists-only, so the exaggerations wont be those I usually give you all...Just trying to push the envelope, and improving.
About the Arno, I don't like it one bit (though I was happy when just done...)But I learned a whole lot from this exercise !!!! that was the main goal. So I am happy after all...Just not on the likeness.

11-06-2010, 08:02 PM
the hair on Arno is just excellent again. and the skin is beautifully luminous and real looking. great! I love the background texture. any hints for me on the texture...is it a sticker used?

11-06-2010, 10:24 PM
The sticker is a grunge texture sticker (006_grunge) provided by Andrea, if I'm not mistaking, I will look it up.


11-07-2010, 01:31 AM
I keep forgetting to take notes... I even left myself a note to not forget to take notes. I must have lost it though... dang it... I keep forgetting. I have spent a bunch of time tracking down a sticker a couple of times. Mimosa was hard little bugger to find. :) And finding stickers can be a major headache. I must leave myself a note about reorganizing my stickers. I think I may have those grunge stickers by Andrea. Now where the heck did I put those. :)

11-13-2010, 01:24 AM
Just made a test picture with new Sticker brushes...A new one will be shown shortly...it's at the printers', and when given as present by the commissioners, I will show it here.

11-13-2010, 04:09 AM
Fantastic new work Hanzz! What an excellent thread this has become! I show it off to my friends all the time!

11-13-2010, 08:22 PM
Wow, thanks man !:cool::cool:
Glad to inspire at least some peeps on this lovely forum !

11-22-2010, 10:32 PM
A 'real try' with the new sticker brushes I made.
The late Ted Kennedy. Hope you like it..:D

11-23-2010, 10:00 AM

11-23-2010, 12:13 PM
Beyond the incredible likeness, the skin tones and textures are perfectly adherent to the subject. A real wonder! Could You pls explain how You made Your skin brushes and the speckled one? I prepared some sticker for textures but the problem is to use them like a brush of koin them seamlessly ...
Thank You!

11-23-2010, 10:57 PM
You posted the same question in the WIP part of this site. I answered you over there. and posted the brush images too.
Glad you like it.

11-23-2010, 11:24 PM
How not to like it .... it's stunning!
Thank You, dear mate, for Your answer in the WIP section.
I saw this finished here and I thought Your attention already switched to this main Forum.

11-24-2010, 10:23 PM
wow Teddy turned out fantastic! Amazing work. John looks great too.

11-24-2010, 11:04 PM

12-04-2010, 06:10 PM
Hanzz, just catching up with your marvelous thread after a long absence. There is so much great material here. Inspired stuff, with wit all right on the mark. I certainly enjoyed revisiting the earlier material, and was blown away by all the great new effort. Terrific stuff. :)

12-04-2010, 07:23 PM

12-04-2010, 08:51 PM
Nielson is a great illustration and a caricature he would have appreciated.

10-09-2011, 08:35 PM
WOW , long time ,no posts here !

I haven't been painting the last months.
Here is a new one, a speedpainted caricature ,, and the brush I made to do it.
I have a new computer (imac) and decided not to take any brushes from the old one to the new one. So I am re-inventig the wheel, and I love it!

10-10-2011, 03:40 AM
Excellent... rendition of Marty....

10-11-2011, 10:13 PM
Thanks Caesar. Here's a commission I just finished...I'm working on a new one already, but I cannot show anything just yet...;)

It was very much liked by both the family as the "victim".

10-13-2011, 08:47 PM
Another commission. The folks that ordered it were raving ! I won't repeat the superlatives here....I'm still blushing....I must admit I was really happy with the outcome myself...
Another happy customer. It made my day.:cool::cool::cool::p
I've had others.....:rolleyes:

10-13-2011, 09:07 PM
When I view your work I'm in awe.

10-13-2011, 09:09 PM
How magnificent these ones too, although I don't know the guys!
I'm very impressed, as always and I've gotta look again at Your tutorials (my attitude for a planned work is low anyway), even if I imagine You got also new tricks out of Your hat, dear mate.
Thank You also for Your last brush settings information! I've never been able to make a good one I could use by patches. The overlapping aways gives an unduly stronger tone ...

NOTE. Your new brush seems to be a bitmap that, when captured, presents a black background rather than a transparent one ...

10-13-2011, 09:09 PM
Thanks EB.

Very nice, like it, and waiting for more! :)

10-15-2011, 04:28 AM
Thanks Voldo.
I also wait unpatiently for the next one. I am working on one now..

No commision, but one to see if I can take my art a step up. we'll see....
It's a singer, a Belgian one.

Maybe you'll know him, maybe not...

Allow me to offer some of my superlatives as well! Brilliant Hanzz!!!!!!

Your stuff is subtle and broad all at once. Remarkable how you have nailed so many of the telling characteristics of the faces and filtered them through your own personal caricature sieve in a way that straight portrait painters ought to envy. BRAVO!!!

KEEP PAINTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


10-18-2011, 03:05 PM
Well done, I enjoyed it.

10-18-2011, 11:15 PM
All top class caricatures, amazing morphings, full of humour and with a perfect technique! Full marks as ever!

10-23-2011, 07:53 PM
Hanzz, it's great to revisit the older pieces, and the recent posts are wonderful. This is one of the great threads in the forum. All of your work is superb. I'm looking forward to trying your stick brush, wondering a lot what I will encounter. You sure manage to create some astounding work with it.

Edit: Great brush. And for sure, like any tool, it's greater in the hands of a master like you who can make use of it to create remarkable offerings. :)

10-23-2011, 08:24 PM
wonderful Hanzz as always.

11-21-2011, 08:13 PM
Thanks Mate !

Here's a new speedpainting. Just done to keep in shape.( I actually stopped doing celebs , and focus on the commissions,and the live drawing work.)
I will post more of these, when I make them..Hope you like...Done in an hour or so..
I just read a document about dinosaur skin, and needed to try something out..


11-21-2011, 08:21 PM
not sure who this is, but it's excellent work.

11-21-2011, 08:25 PM
You don't know this cutie ? try this

11-21-2011, 11:38 PM
well now that I see her... you did an amazing likeness as well. that would be a difficult portrait to make her look good. I do not know this woman, but I am guessing she has something to do with the designer named Versace. good one Hanzz. I will look up who she is. :)

11-21-2011, 11:55 PM
Another great one Hanzz, well done, these are so much fun to see:)

11-22-2011, 03:11 AM
Great how you can use to create drawings in such a short period of time.
Well done.

Such great caricatures! ... are the really only done using AR studio Pro???
The one of the Pope for example looks positively 3D!!!

Superb work all round :D

04-26-2012, 08:13 PM
sorry for the late reply..

Thanks everyone.
Everything from sketch to finish is indeed ArtRage 3Studio Pro.
I don't use another program for painting sketching or anything art related.
Mostly stickers I made, sometimes ink for cartoony things, and sometimes the much underrated airbrush, which is the best around.

04-27-2012, 02:57 AM
