These are awesome, thanks!!!

Thanks Justine. beautiful colors. great for pastel work. :) and now very handy to grab one...instead of trying to approximate a pastel paper when needed.
nicely organized and a beautiful package image. so timely because I am finally getting around to appreciating chalk. thanks again.

already tried one. wow. just perfect. such a dream to use. it feels like real pastel paper! and a little wet palette knife works so well as a blunt with the chalk. these are really really nice. :eek:

@ArtGeek, thanks hope they are useful to you

@ScreenPainter, thanks so much for your wonderful endorsement.:)
Great to know how people are using them. I find they're also really nice with Someone's soft sketching pencil (my favorite sketching pencil)

I didn't think many people were downloading them but checked my server stats and there's been 70 odd downloads of this file just today, so I guess someone has linked them on the magical internets. :)

it sort of amazes me sometimes. how many people download them. glad when they stop and say thank you as well. these are so nice.

Just downloaded these today ... very nice indeed! Can't wait to get home and start using them! Thanks!
(And I'm not just saying that to please 'screenpainter' ;))

@ScreenPainter, if they've been linked via a social network like twitter, people may not know where they're downloading them from in order to say thankyou.
It is always very nice to be thanked for effort though and always great to know if they're useful to people and how they're being used. ;):)

@Robyn, hehehe :) , thanks, hope you find them worthwhile

Juz, thanks for the wonderful papers just used one with the knife :D

Wonderful, saw your image Jean and you've definitely wow'd me with the application of the paper :):)

Thanks, Juz. Haven't tried them out yet, but it's wonderful having them available.
And of course, I only thanked you because the artist formerly know as GZ (by me) reminded me. :p:D:D:D

This looks like a great pack. I'll work out how to get them into AR. A learning curve but it sure is enjoyable. Thanks Justine! :)

Edit: all done, wow too easy! :D Lovely pack, really nice to draw on!

Thanks so much Juz, very kind of you to share with us:)

Juz , thanks so much for these, i love pastel painting these will be great, this place amazing, the people are so friendly and kind, i so love artrage, i hardly ever use painter now, thanks again for these wonderfull papers

@picturedev, as pointed out by Dave you don't need to place the .arpack file in a specific place, anywhere on your hard drive will do, double click to run and then hit the 'install' button. You will find the installed papers in the 'Canvas Settings' dialog in a newly created group called 'Drawing Papers' :)

@Pat, thank you :)

@Swansong, thanks and welcome to the Artrage Family :), I must admit I haven't really touched painter myself since discovering Artrage.

Wow Juz, you are a treasure chest of worthwhile supplies. This is a neat idea - many thanks!

PS; just been playing with them and they a superb addition imo, love the texture, love the colors. Its like having a whole stack of those expensive pastel papers you see in good art shops. Yay :D:D:D

Hey, thanks a lot. Just found these.
Looking forward to play more on new machine and try out your papers. They are beautiful. Also planning to sit down and learn sticker-lore with SomeoneSane (thru his tute, of course).

i would love to download the .arpack in the original post but the link is not working. In fact I have not been able to download any of Juz's great content from the forums. Is there an alternate location from which to download?
