I had the desire to realize an image like this for a long time. Now finally I decided to try.

My purpose was to use as much AR3 features as possible without falling into oddity. I used precise smooth pencil to draw the subject, then transparency locking to colorize strokes, water marker to fill subject color areas, overlay layers for hilights and red/blue lighting, multiply layers for shading. Then oil bristle and gloop pen for the "energy explosion" in the background, mixing colors with the new wet palette knife. Also used stencils to add grain to the explosion, mixing with some water colors touches. Some layer blurring to obtain AR logo glow and some other light points. Finally the new text tool. Everything in AR3, wow! This new release is cool! The original picture is 3500x2000 pixel... AR3 gone a bit slow when working on the layer palette, but I must say that it's really good!

Hope you enjoy the picture!

Thank you Caesar and Mannafig!

This was my first "serious" work in AR, I mean a work based on a project. I must admit that I really enjoyed working on it! :D

The energy that radiates from this is just incredible, uuderzo! This is a wonderful tribute to the power of AR3. It just amazes me with your technical layer approach and tools used to create this wonderful piece...bravo!!!

Alexandra, Eileen, Valerie, Albert, Scott, Flyashy, Coops... thank you so much for your feedback!

Too bad this drawing reveals my technical nature... I wish to master a more "paint and brush" style, but I'm only at the beginning of the road...

In the future, I must try to develop my technical style in a more lazy one, hope I'll be able to face it :)
