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.

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.

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.

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).

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?

Nelgred
06-23-2006, 03:27 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.

Best,
Glen

Hi Guys,

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, 09:01 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
10-31-2006, 12:48 AM
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 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

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.

Not entirely sure how long this one took, but it was more than 30 minutes and less than 60.

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.

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!

Hi Dani, that's very soft painting to me. Very soothing. :)

D Akey

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!

Think you captured it, the sky looks lovely.

D Akey
11-09-2008, 06:50 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, 06:59 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.

D Akey
11-09-2008, 07:04 AM
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.

pai
11-09-2008, 11:37 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. :)
