hello ppl this thread is ment to explore one of the coolest weapons of ArtRage2 -The glitter gun (muhaha :))) )

the rules are simple :
1. the subject is "fantazy creatures"
2. pencil can be used for the initial sketch
but the final project must be "glitter gunned" only !
3. have fun!!!

i'm posting my "king of the forest" late late at night work :)

Holy guacamole!
That's really impressive. It looks so... deeply textured. Like an actual physical thing.
I love it. And it's a really cool idea for a thread too!

Here's why AndyRage never posts images....


The original picture is done at 1920 x 1600. I should have started smaller!
So here's my contribution - an angry evil snowman on a rampage. Done entirely in glitter (except for the initial sketch).

Andy... oh come on -- you can even tell what the picture is! Once this next patch is out, you draw us all an evil Easter Bunny!

Trust me! In Western Europe the title is meaningful.
Fun to do anyway.

I hope you can guess what this is supposed to be!

AndyRage

It looks sorta like sand-art.
Or like looking at a print on carpet. Or something.

bleepnik
04-20-2006, 10:58 AM
I agree, it looks like sand art to me too, and I think it works really well.

Enchanter, it's funny how the poor bunny rabbit lends itself so well to genetic mutation, eh? =]

Ha! The glitter dragon is great! NewCube, I love the eyes, and um... is it wearing lipstick? =]

Aged P... Wow. I mean, wow. You've created a gloriously beautiful scene, glitter tool or no glitter tool. The sky gradient, the reflection on the water, the trees, the colour palette, it's all just really well conceived and put together.

Thanks, everyone!

I couldn't resist. I saved myself some time by tracing a background I painted in Photoshop a few years back. The critter I did tonight. All that glitters is... Um.... glitter. :D

bleepnik
04-20-2006, 04:29 PM
This is gorgeous! I love the contrast between deep, rich colours in the background and the brighter palette of your critter. It appears almost luminescent! I could totally see this as a nice velvet tapestry hanging on my wall.

ENCHANTER
04-21-2006, 05:36 AM
those all were really cool,......Fashmir....i agree with Gita....., the dark background, with a hint of foliage and then the stark blue flying baby fairy dragon thing is brilliant,

Gita....Bunny Rabbits have hidden genes in them ..and oncce in a while....you get to see their true identities :lol:

This glitter thread is fun!

AndyRage
04-21-2006, 10:52 PM
Awesome, Sweedie. Very cool character. And I still love the texture of these glitter works.

Fashmir

Sweedie. That's great. Alot of personality there.

Wow! love the art work, it's awesome, I love this thread! I painted some flowers using the glitter gun then realized it had to be a creature! so I posted those in the gallery and drew some dragons of course. Her is the first one, after I was done I realized I'd forgotten wings!

beadie09
04-24-2006, 11:59 AM
OK, here is the second one and of course I had to try metallic! I like this one alot. of course I didn't do the backgrounds in glitter, sorry.

AndyRage
04-24-2006, 12:00 PM
Wow, beadie09 - those two dragons are fantastic!

They go really well on the metalic paper background too. So rich and lively!

Fashmir
04-24-2006, 12:09 PM
Those are cool dragons (I love dragons especially). I love that the Rage team has created a tool that is now out in the world and new artforms like this one are coming to light. I don't believe I have ever seen a collection such as that in this thread. Keep posting your glitter critters people. This thread is fun.

04-24-2006, 01:47 PM
I am so loving this glitter gun, you can do so much with it. at first I was thinking glitter gun, I'll never use that, but you can get some great textures with it! anyway, another dragon, I tried to do some background but it was too distracting. ok, after this I promise to draw something else!

sbug51
04-24-2006, 04:08 PM
so cool beadie09!

AndyRage
04-24-2006, 04:10 PM
Beadie09 those dragons are really cool. It looks like they're actually jewel-encrusted - rubies, emeralds, and various others. As well as being fantastic figures, the glitter has given them a really great texture.

Some of these glitter images reminds me a small colored stirefoam pieces that has been broken up and sprinkled into nice shapes over a flat surface........ :)

hey, thanks andyrage, fashmir,sbug51,sethren, I absolutely love dragons, can you tell? I work in glass now, but I can't get the glass to do the same things my pen can! and no way can I make a non metallic dragon now, I'll have to try in regular paint, not glitter, but the metallic really makes the dragon for me!
thanks for a great art tool!

Serena, the last dragon you posted is my favourite of the three. I think it really shows the evolution of your mastery of the tool. Great stuff!

Okay, I decided to give this a try.

I made two images back-to-back because I didn't like how the first one turned out.

At the end of it all, I'm still not sure how I feel about the tool. It's certainly a unique look, but odd to work with.

Anyhow, here they are in order:

This gallery is increadible. When I read the title "Glitter Art" I didn't expect to the kind of work I just witnessed. Very cool!

Collin, your second character looks a bit erm.. disgruntled. Is he not happy with the glitter tool? =)

Good stuff.

Originally, the glitter tool was put in as a 'shiny thing' for kids to use, and for me to test out the lighting blowout on metalics.
But it can also give a nice texture to painted images.

I was passing an art shop here in Auckland, and noticed they were selling images (landscapes and the like) made up of glitter and coloured sand and other textured media. It seriously looked like ArtRage glitter art!
