Needless to say, I loved artrage and have had nothing but heaps of joy and success in painting with artrage.
All it needs now is a watercolor tool. :D
Here are two paintings done with this lovely tool.

This is great work Twoheaded.
The first one is so real that at first glance, I took it for a picture.
And I like the style of your self portrait.

The chrome one is cool, looks almost like it was done with one of the KPT filters as featured by ArtRage on one of their pages showing AR's compatability.

Did you just work over a photo or do it some other way? The chrome seems particularly reflective and rich in color.

But my congratulations goes out to the painted portrait. That's mighty fine. I love your no frills paint application and use of color. It looks like a painting I would gladly hang on my wall.

Welcome indeed.

Thanks all for your compliments.
To answer D akey's question, I did the chrome painting with a reference image pinned on the side of work area, another great thing about artrage.
It was originally intended to be a material study but I went ahead and finished it.

More coming soon.
