I just had to have a go, thanks so much Peter for your tut and you were right, IT WAS FUN. Called this one Circus Act lol. :):):):)

Here is one that I made with the masking tool, and eraser on difference.

06-13-2011, 11:51 AM
I wanted to do more with this character of Anne Rice's book "The Mummy." I like this one much better using Peter's Rabbit Hole Secrets. Hope you enjoy it.

the abuse of ArtRage can scare you half to death sometimes:eek::eek:

06-24-2011, 12:17 AM
Wow, great work Peter, he is very scary indeed!:eek:

I am going to go through my folders Peter and Katie, I will try to find all of mine. I think it would fantastic if we could view all of them that we all have made. :D

A few from the past...........the first 2 used AR and Paint Shop the others were pure AR

Peter Pinckney
08-19-2011, 03:21 AM
here are 2 more quick ones just completed..both in AR3.5

08-19-2011, 10:38 AM
These are fantastic Peter.:eek::):):):):):):):):):)
Here are a few old ones of mine too.

08-22-2011, 08:54 AM
Thanks for looking!

08-25-2011, 11:34 PM
"Alien" (with the circles)
"Lothlorian Stainglass Window"
"The Living Bowl"

08-26-2011, 01:41 AM
Another thread I hadn't explored. I love it!!!!! I don't know about the rest of the Ragers, but every so often I go into a dry spell when I cannot come up with any ideas. I am not sure whether it is a mistake or not exploring all these other threads but it gets the mind whirring and the desire to get Art Rage fired up. Trouble is, I am not sure my bosses would be pleased if I sat here all day playing with Art Rage instead of doing what they pay me to do. :mad::(:rolleyes:

08-26-2011, 02:27 AM
What a cool thread....:):):)

08-26-2011, 03:40 AM
@Peter, love the new additions especially that delicate watercolour one
@Alexandra, wow you've been prolific, fantastic new additions

@Bobbi lol, maybe you'll get some time on the w'end to play
@kenmo, you should try it out, its quite addictive and fun

Here's another quick one (i always wanted to use those jellyfish stickers:D)

08-28-2011, 01:37 AM
Thanks Juz. I like yours too, and the jelly fish are cool. I hope you feel like more!
Here is another one. I've wanted to do this for a while. Next time...more eggs.
Ken, Bobbi, come on we're waiting.:D

11-14-2011, 10:34 AM
Watch out rabbits the tiger is coming lol. Had lots of fun with Peters Tut you never know whats going to happen:)

12-10-2011, 03:17 AM
A cool one Katie, and what is so cool about it all is that you can not recreate these pieces.
A definite tiger in the hole, and a great one!:eek:

02-09-2012, 12:08 PM
You even gave a blueprint how to construct a rabbit hole. Well done, Peter, with or without cotton tail. :D

02-15-2012, 04:19 AM
And where would we be without his cool rabbit hole? It has been so fun!

02-29-2012, 04:38 AM
A few more of mine....

02-29-2012, 10:15 PM
The most astounding collection of LSD Art! :eek::cool::D:):):):):):)
Great additions, dear Katie and Sandra!
I must be a pointing hound since I never entered (or rather fell) in the rabbit hole this far. :p

03-12-2012, 05:33 AM
I don't know why I chose that name.
Cesare....we are waiting.:cool:

03-12-2012, 11:04 PM
Wonderful! I like this one, a sort of cut out from Gary made 3-d ... :p
As for my entry, I've been a little involved with textures to appear on my experiments recently and I'm also attracted in learning from Carlo Saraceni and Norman Rockwell (one painting by each of the two), so I cannot assure any date, maybe all of sudden I'll throw myself into the hole and it may happen anytime, even in two minutes or two days, just when I catch on fire thereabout in my erratic inspirational jumps...:rolleyes:

03-13-2012, 01:26 AM
Ok. I did one with only a couple of tricks suggested by Pete and freely playing without any particular idea, meaning etc.
I also re-used some of my resources to help with the background scenarios and textures.
I hope You like it the same ...

03-13-2012, 04:07 AM
Fantastic dear Cesare! More pls!

03-16-2012, 10:38 AM
Peter, I had to make more marbles.....
because I lost mine.:rolleyes::D:p:D

03-16-2012, 11:59 AM
Wonderful! You have so many tricks in Your pockets, dear Sandra! :eek::cool:

03-17-2012, 12:49 PM
A fun trick really dear Cesare, and thank you.
Here are some examples. Duplicate once you've flipped and combined as much as you like, and duplicate the combined drawings and transform it to Difference. One need only apply different stamps or stickers...or even use a few of your great silhouettes.:)

03-18-2012, 05:34 AM
Thank You for Your explanation, dear Sandra. A brilliant idea indeed and what a result!

05-18-2012, 12:01 AM
Three more to add.
Come on ragers.....let's keep this rabbit hole open.:D

05-18-2012, 09:22 AM

05-22-2012, 04:04 PM
Haven't submitted a RHD for a while so here's a new one...

05-28-2012, 06:55 AM
Beautiful Juz! I too followed, and was never the same.;)

Here is one I made last night.

06-25-2012, 05:00 AM
I really didn't know what to name this one.:rolleyes:

You name it "Satin Ribbons", because that is exactly what it looks like. Very nice !

07-07-2012, 09:45 AM
Thank you JPod!:)

07-08-2012, 11:05 PM

07-17-2012, 06:18 AM

07-17-2012, 11:33 AM
Just having a little bit of fun and relaxation today, I used and old painting and blended it all with wet knife for the bk,( lazy way lol but just wanted to see how it ended up) then just finished the rest in RH technique, so thought I would post it anyway

08-02-2012, 01:27 AM
Maybe this one is an acceptable candidate to join the club ...

01-29-2013, 02:39 AM
Returned to it's governing body deep within the jungle and ruins....do you want to know everything???? :eek:

01-30-2013, 03:49 AM
Love all of these, they are so colourful and funky... I will have a go myself once I have read the instructions again :)

03-22-2013, 07:24 PM
Good lord. Somehow I have completely missed this thread. Many of the works in here are simply extraordinary. Killer thread.

03-23-2013, 01:57 AM
\woot/ ! treasures ! treasures ! i am going to make one soon ! awesome creative stuffs here. Beautiful works ! :D:D:D

03-23-2013, 10:55 AM
I agree! I've got a big day out today, but will have a play tonight. They all marvelous! :cool:

10-10-2013, 06:44 AM
Rabbit Hole Design.....think on good things.

10-18-2013, 01:40 AM
Sometimes it's Artrage driving You by a tool and You may only steer a little bit along blowing wind directions and through gusts. Here' an example of where I was taken by such currents and my wing feathers adjustments. A fascinating and slightly disquieting place. Maybe I just crashed hitting the ground at the end of the Rabbit Hole ...

01-23-2015, 09:44 PM
blast from the past! :)

01-23-2015, 11:52 PM

Thanks screenpainter for bringing this great thread back. :D

I remember seeing it two years ago, and finding it soooo very much intriguing. Two years later it's fun to see these paintings again and realize they still fascinate just as much.

Great results!

And thanks Peter for introducing the thread. I hope it lives on. :o
