I think they are all great, and so colourful. I can now see why you think this Forum could do with re-decorating.

Please don't take "colourful" as some form of veiled criticism.
They are bright and beautiful, the girl is superb.

Please don't take "colourful" as some form of veiled criticism.

It's alright Aged P, I take it as a compliment.

Very rich pictures. The flowers in the vase are excellent.

04-20-2006, 11:00 AM
Ooooh.. that's a beautiful portrait (what striking eyes!) and those pink petals are just amazing.

Very expressive face on the girl, and the hibiscus flowers look soft, by the way did you know that you can make tea from the flowers if they have not been sprayed, they have a good Vitamin C content.

nice work :) i like how you did the rain, very smooth

04-25-2006, 09:19 AM
Heh. Is this 'memories of camping trips'?

05-10-2006, 02:33 PM
This seemed like a good thread to place my first post... what can I paint in an hour... well, I'm finished with this one... but I don't know know what it is... :?: so I guess I'll never really know what I can paint in an hour... :D :P

An edit to my post... my son suggests to me, that this is a flying meatball. :lol:

05-10-2006, 03:34 PM
Heh. That's got some really interesting effects in there. Quite striking.
Whether it's a Beholder, or a Flying Meatball, it seems very happy with itself.

Welcome to the forums, Celithralia.

05-10-2006, 05:24 PM
That is a cool image. It has snap and personality, not to mention it's a visual grabber. Welcome to the forum.

05-10-2006, 10:22 PM
About 40 mins. Framed in Photoshop. Artwork done in artrage. It's the second image I've done in artrage so far. Not sure if I like it though.

I haven't painted since high school (a long time ago) so I have no clue if I'm doing it right or not.

05-11-2006, 12:23 AM
Welcome to the forums, Celithralia and evaperrin. Celithralia, your painting reminds me of an "evil" version of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy cover (http://www.thealmightyguru.com/Reviews/HitchHiker/Images/HHGG-HHGG-Hard.jpg). It's full of personality, that's for sure! =] And Eva, looks good to me! It looks like you're working with a combination of media there. I like the colours you've chosen.

Thanks for posting!

Hi everyone and welcome evaperrin & Celithralia

Here's another I was able to make in an hour. It's a title page for one of my school assignments. Artrage really brightness dull school work.

05-13-2006, 08:42 AM
Wow. It's surprising the level of detail you managed to get into the people in that time.
I like the car too.

05-13-2006, 05:32 PM

Your painting is very nice... Very frenchy "1900" ..

the dark clouds above, the cold mountains and then a burst of new sun

there is hope

nice one as alays Fash mir :lol:

05-18-2006, 10:33 AM
Sanctuary, or false hope at the end of the trail?
Very cool. The roiling clouds with the touch of light on them are excellent.

05-18-2006, 10:51 AM
Wow Fasmir love your stormy mountains-have to go run to the top of one of the towers where its warm before the sun moves off them :)
Love the colours you've used too, so very evocative :!:

05-18-2006, 11:58 AM
Fashimir! That is stunning, very very stunning. Reminds me a little of Lord of the Rings for some reason. I love the way you did the mountains, has that beautifully sweeping feel to it and the whole artwork has so much atmosphere!

05-18-2006, 05:52 PM
Thanks for the comments. It's the first image I had time to do on my new Cintiq (at work) since I got it. I'm already loving that device.

06-22-2006, 06:55 PM
Hi Nelgred and welcome,

Truly wonderful picture, Rembrandt would have approved!
Wouldn't he have had a great time with ArtRage.

Where did you learn to paint so well?

06-23-2006, 02:27 AM
@AndyRage- Thanks for the compliment. You and your mates have created a fantastic program! I don't know where I was when the 1st one came out but man this second one is a blast. I actually read a review of it in ImagineFX. I figured I would give it a try so I downloaded the demo. When i first started to use the oil brush i was amazed at how well it worked. I thought to myself, finally a program that works sorta like the mixing pallet in painter 9. I loved it so much I bought 2 copies one for my PC at home and one for my Mac at work. I can't wait to see what you do next. I really hope everything stays as simple as it is right now. The only things I would like to have added would be a fan brush for blending better, some watercolors and a Crow Quill ink pen. Also support for larger images as well as better memory managment. Other than that, which I'm sure is quite a task in itself, this program is near perfect for me.

@AgedP- Thank you for the compliment. I agree, Rembrandt would have a great time with Artrage! The painting has a few issues but I think its a fair likeness. I don't really think I paint all that well, I was never exceptional at it when I was in Art college. It wasn't until I got into Digital did I really start to get into it. I think the mess and fuss with the brushes and oils, although it has its charms, wasn't really for me. But now that everything is so self contained and easy to use I love it. I don't think painter really achieves what this program does with it's use of oils. At least I haven't been able to get it to do what this little gem can do. Maybe it's me. Simple is better.

Sorry for the long winded posts, I'm just excited about this product.
I will be sure to post more art when I can.


06-23-2006, 06:03 PM
A quick sketch with roller and brush, I cheated a bit by using photoshop to tweak the heads position.

They look like they could be heads from some of the executives that usually appear behind a big desk, proclaiing something pompous, in the New Yorker cartoons.

Fantastic painting, Nelgred. Welcome to the forums! jiilin, your characters brought a smile to my face, thank you. A great welcome to the forums to you, as well. maror, I thought I had already commented on your study of light and shadow, but I guess I missed it somehow. I have always loved such studies, both in photography and painting/drawing. That piece is beauitful.

09-20-2006, 10:38 AM
This makes me think of sitting in my car watching a stormy sea by the inlet (I have one in my town). There is odd (in my opinion) calmness and satisfaction from sitting in a warm dry car watching the large waves roll in the inlet, washing over the rocks.

09-24-2006, 10:39 AM
Hi Guys,

Something to stretch your eyes.

I just love the Dry Brush!

I really, really, _really_ like this. Not sure why, but it grabs me far more than any of your other pieces. The colour is just... exquisite; the sterile blues, grays and whites of the city 'glow' contrast wonderfully with the feral, hellish reds of the looming sky. And the eyebrow-esque wisps of cloud are just begging for some omnipotent visage to be added in a spinoff image :P

Aged P
09-24-2006, 08:01 PM
Hi Dave,

I'd forgotten this one.

Many thanks for your kind words. I was thinking of going back to doing this, reference free, tracing free, just do it, sort of painting.

If you fancy adding an "omnipotent visage" then feel free. It would create a sort of book cover effect which would be cool.

quick questionAged P, how did you do the gridlines? One of the frustrating things I've found with Artrage is a lack of a ruler/straight line function, meaning I have to export the image over to gimp just to get straight lines drawn.

Aged P
10-30-2006, 11:48 PM
Hi Sididis,

The grid lines were done using the Grains feature.
You find a suitable grid and then use it behind the layer.
Changing size, roughness, negative/positive to suit your picture.

Use Chalk or Crayon to get a result, then tidy it up with the Eraser.

Not just Grids! Absolutely any picture.

Hi V & T,

I only just noticed the question!

My usual way of painting birds is as silhouettes about a mile away. :lol:

I used to paint almost nothing but cats and dogs and birds, because if you make them look a bit like people they sell well. Not for a lot of money, but they did sell. If a picture looks as if it needs some sort of indication of size I'll still bung in a bird. But I've got phobic about painting them.

I'm with Maror on that about color and all.

I like the way the sky and earth meet in a flowing image. Has to be on a high spot to have the clouds just beside the tree. Wind is moving them both. One slowly and one quicker.

At least that's my interpretation.

Nice juxtaposition in any case.

I was bored the other night, so I decided to paint something. I was watching a movie, so I know I fit it all within the time it took to watch it, but I was actually watching the movie at times so I know it didn't take the full hour and a half to do it, lol.

I used CamStudio to take time lapse shots, which I made into a video that you can watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHsKKoXGXSo

07-16-2008, 10:56 AM
First attempt at drawing a face, so speedpainting probably wasn't the best starting point. But what the heck, it was worth a try. I'm way beyond not pleased with the result, but at least I know a few things I aught to improve at.
You can probably see that I've never studied anatomy. ;)

I originally intended painting in oil, but it turned into oil + airbrush.

07-25-2008, 09:06 AM
Not entirely sure how long this one took, but it was more than 30 minutes and less than 60.

07-25-2008, 10:32 AM
Beautiful Bumble and Pai. Someonesane...very beautiful pic and a great vid.

Gormash I really like these. If it were me I would like to paint more and more while still in that stage because it's hard to go back and do that style once you get more technical. Just enjoy it and save them at all cost. someday you may want what you lost, by getting technical. :)

I've had ArtRage for a few months but I've only recently started using it properly. I figure here was as good a place as any to have my first post.

This took me about 45mins. I don't really like it but I love how organic ArtRage feels :)

Pai, your so called "sketches" have an impressive directness and flair. Many regular plein aire artists would go to great lengths to get this kind of spontaneity in their larger paintings.

And they would make wonderful paintings large on a wall.

I was bored the other night, so I decided to paint something. I was watching a movie, so I know I fit it all within the time it took to watch it, but I was actually watching the movie at times so I know it didn't take the full hour and a half to do it, lol.

I used CamStudio to take time lapse shots, which I made into a video that you can watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHsKKoXGXSo

@ Someonesane:
Don't know how I missed this one. Very rich painting. I really like it. Hope you do more.

09-21-2008, 04:38 AM
Dear Someonesane, That is sooooo cool and pretty, what a beautiful painting!!! thanks for the video and i was going to ask how you did it but found you put in the info about CamStudio, what a neat site,,, thanks again!!!:)

09-22-2008, 11:14 AM

Nice one Jester! Very recognizable.

09-22-2008, 02:54 PM
Thank you Selby and D. :)

10-06-2008, 03:55 PM
Thanks D Akey, Selby and Jester.

Haven't painted for few weeks. Playing glitter, chalk and oil with a reference photo. Around hour and half to feel the tools again.

10-06-2008, 10:34 PM
WOW, Pai! New, fresh, gorgeous, stylish quick painting!

10-06-2008, 10:35 PM

10-09-2008, 06:16 PM

An old and dying tree in a haunted forest beside a magical pond. :)
Ah Pai, how is it that whatever you set your hand to do turns out so well?

10-09-2008, 06:52 PM
sad yet pretty one pai:)

10-11-2008, 02:53 AM
Thank you Bob and Selby. :)

10-11-2008, 05:09 PM
Dear Pai, hello again!!! well, this is very pretty! first impression was it is inside a cave but the cave splits off to the right or left, the right side looks more inviting but the left seems that it would lead to the outside,,, oh, fudge!;):), sure it is a a mossy tree!

10-12-2008, 02:40 AM
I couldn't paint too much this last days, just imaginary,quick paintings.

10-12-2008, 04:24 AM
Dear Dani, love your image-in-air landscape!!! so gosamer and fresh, lovely colors!!! beautiful!!!:)

10-12-2008, 02:54 PM
Thank you Lee. :)
Hi Dani, that's very soft painting to me. Very soothing. :)

...continue playing color...

D Akey
10-12-2008, 08:35 PM
Pai, this latest one reminds me of an abstraction of what I might see looking at an abalone shell. The movement is not unlike it at all. Beautiful and organic.

10-18-2008, 03:09 AM
A quick doodle.:)

10-18-2008, 03:14 AM
Also a quick illustration related to the grain I'v done.

D Akey
10-18-2008, 03:43 AM
Quick doodle is deep in feminine aspect. Lovely. Wow.

The one with the butterfly verse. . . what an interesting choice of fonts!

It's almost unreadable -- the capital letters portion, and yet it has a graphic design quality in abstraction that is perfect for your art statement. It has a decorative quality. And the line of it is not unlike the flight path of a butterfly as it flutters about.

I really do enjoy such integration of type into your work. You blend the lines between literary and graphic.

Great stuff Dany!

10-18-2008, 05:28 AM
Dear Dani, you know my favorites of yours are the ones with poetry,,, this butterfly one is again beautiful!!!:)

10-18-2008, 10:50 AM
Hi!, I drew this today in 28 min :p

10-18-2008, 11:21 AM
Hi Macbe, very nice your Keyring -fish:D

Thank you D Akey and thank you Lee,
I reworked the textures today and I will upload them now, I hope they are better and in good order.:):cool:

10-22-2008, 02:40 PM
Because don't exist "The Old Kids Korner", I publish in here a painting that I'v done in 10 or 15 minutes I think;
it can be coled :too many stars...,I used two stencils of mrpaint at different scales.

10-22-2008, 07:23 PM
That little gold fish is cute, Macbe. :)

Dany, beautiful stencil play in just 15 min. Love this universal stars. :)

....I'm taking a break...a dream land to go..

10-23-2008, 03:54 PM
Pai, I like this light who go down to the waves it is like an island covered with clouds in your dream; very nice.:)

10-23-2008, 05:02 PM
Thank you, Dany. :)

...some strange land :D

10-24-2008, 04:41 AM
Some great paintings, like some strange land Pai.
I did my cat Smartie asleep beside me about half hour.

10-24-2008, 04:58 AM
Thanks, Sandy:)

Is it your cat? lovely. :)

10-26-2008, 12:22 PM
Yes it's one of my four cats.

11-09-2008, 02:27 AM
I did this in about ten minutes with stencils for my daughter(roller + airbrush),
stencils by mr stencil, I tried to capture the northern lights feel

11-09-2008, 05:16 AM
Think you captured it, the sky looks lovely.

D Akey
11-09-2008, 05:50 AM
Pai, I love 'Some Strange Land'. It has a dreamlike quality. I remember seeing it many times but I thought I had commented. Sorry if I missed it. It's worthy of comment for sure.

It feels free and a space worth exploration. The painting is only a 'snapshot' of something far deeper.

Wonderful. :)

D Akey
11-09-2008, 05:59 AM
Hi Sandyg,

I LOVE that cat. I think it's really clever how you are telling the story by simply using flat shapes that imply dimension. My mind completes the depth so there is nothing lacking at all.

In fact this is a very good example of leading the mind with less visual detail. And yet my mind reads it as wholly inclusive. The whole idea of cat with those colors in that sleeping pose is very well rooted in my head.

And of course the editing cleverness of the artist (you) is very strong because you were able to achieve so much with so little. I'm impressed.

Great work! I love it.

Clay, that's awesome -- very much like a children's book illustration. I very mush like the look done with silhouette shapes with dots, as with the city/building area. And it all reads very well.

My eye does go to the Northern Lights area as a stand out feature, possibly because of the simplified prismatic quality. It adds a lot.

Your daughter should be quite pleased. Did you paint it with her watching? Seems that might be quite inspiring. Or perhaps she was inspiring dad, since he stole her stencils. hahah.

Nice one.

11-09-2008, 10:37 AM
Thanks D Akey. Glad you like this "strange land". Don't know what will come up next time. :p

Clay, that is so beautiful Christmas painting for children, I like it very much. So magical and a little bit like Northern light. It will also great on Christmas card. I already feel the spirit of this great day. Thanks. :)

11-09-2008, 05:42 PM

11-12-2008, 05:37 PM
Love that last one Pai it looks like a waterfall to me, great colours.

Thank you for your comments about my moggy D Akey, you always say the right words and encouraging words.
Have you done any Art D Akey I couldn't find a folder. Mind you you're so busy giving these, sometimes witty as well words in the forums you wouldn't have much time. You've sent a lot of posts.

11-13-2008, 06:32 AM
Dear Pai, they are like two imaginary landscapes, I can see in the second one a waterfall , beautiful colors.
evry budy need a break from time to time it depands it what purpose, I hope that is to find more strenght for the paintings.:)

11-20-2008, 03:23 PM
