38697this is my first painting in artrage, i usually use painter 9 for my work but recently discovered artrage and am happy to say i prefer the oil paints in artrage as they are much more realistic.

painted in artrage studio pro using oil paint, pallette knife and paint roller using only default presets, in much the same way i paint with real oils. edit: another portrait added this one was done in painter 11 trying to get a similar effect to artrage, which aint so easy

Amazing and very inspirational. Fantastic portraits! I think the final 2 in your initial post are the most impressive, but they all look wonderful.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you capture the time lapse of you working?

11-22-2010, 10:23 AM
Very nice indeed...

If only I could paint like this :o ... the latest portrait is just wonderful.
Thick paint incorporated among deliberate but free flowing washes of
color, resulting in an exceptional work of art. :)

thanks for the comments guys.....
heres a still life done mostly from life in painter11 and artrage

HarlequiNQB (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/member.php?u=12763) I capture the painting using camstudio a free recording software, it is a pain to set up though and slows down the computer otherwise id record all my paintings

01-26-2011, 04:58 PM
this is really a masterpiece. what a beautiful painting! it's so beautiful! and I'm blown away at how much it looks like real medium painting.! I wish very much to get there some day. really stunning work. brilliant!

01-26-2011, 05:39 PM
I'm blown away at how much it looks like real medium painting.!

id say thats because i am a traditional painter and i just try to use the computer to copy the techniques i execute in oils. my traditional oil paintings look very similar.

01-26-2011, 06:04 PM
good work .

01-26-2011, 06:50 PM
I bet you are an amazing oil painter as well Ray. Great work.

02-01-2011, 10:03 AM
this one was done in painter 11, no art rage this time, but there is a video of my process. the video is a little messed up because of bugs in painter, but im sure some people will find it interesting.

video is HERE (http://www.facebook.com/rattsang#%21/video/video.php?v=496467347413&notif_t=video_processed)

Stunning:D work!

02-03-2011, 06:16 PM
very good work, esp the treatment. interesting thread to browse through..:).

02-03-2011, 11:17 PM
Very good one again!
I wonder how long (or rather short) it takes to You to paint this marvels with an evident sort of speedy painting process ...:rolleyes:

02-03-2011, 11:42 PM
Really nice work:):)

Your latest portrait is a perfect example of top notch artistry in
the ability to integrate not only talent but also poignant human
expression. There is a confident strength in her face as well as
a movement, a soft flow of paint application that hints of a
gentle dimension. Beautifully painted! :)

02-11-2011, 04:22 AM
Love the simplicity of the brushstrokes which are expertly applied to the canvas to create a stunning portrait. By the look on the girl's face she is pleased with the outcome as I am sure you are. Well done:)

02-11-2011, 06:31 AM
More terrific work. I liked your video.:)

11-02-2012, 02:29 PM
here is a painting of me done in art rage studio 3

there is a timleapse making of video here (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=406803069391572&set=vb.219899744748573&type=3&theater)
also in the same link are instructions to get the actual record file to play back the painting in real time within artrage

11-02-2012, 07:56 PM
brilliant work!

11-02-2012, 10:18 PM
It requires a real mastery to make such an expressive and effective self-portrait with an apparently simple and loose style! Bravissimo!

11-03-2012, 03:20 AM
Exceptional portraits, love the self portrait, wonderful brush strokes

11-03-2012, 04:20 AM
An excellent portrait.

11-04-2012, 06:10 AM
Outstanding work:D

12-14-2012, 04:40 AM
here is a new portrait... done using only the oil brushes in artrage

12-14-2012, 04:52 AM
Nicely done, it has an outdoors ruggedness about it.

12-14-2012, 05:00 AM

Latest one is great as well. Yeah, I would say you would be dyn-o-mite armed with an ipad.

12-18-2012, 01:06 AM
Love this latest painting. Makes me wonder what she is looking at and what she is thinking. Great work:)

09-28-2016, 08:44 AM

Wonderful portraits!

I quite like looking at your art here. I've not yet dived into oils of any type, and learning what one can do with them is important, especially in certain, more specialized areas like portraiture. I'll be referring back to this thread as I learn.

10-09-2016, 10:15 PM
I love these. Very nicely done.
