View Full Version : Please critique these portraits!

03-27-2012, 12:11 PM
Hello! This is my first time posting on the Forums. For the most part, I'm a traditional artist, and most digital programs, though robust, never truly gave me the same feeling as actual painting. ArtRage changes all of that. Though not perfect (#letmehavemyphotoshopbrushes), it's simple, intuitive, and really gives the feeling of painting on canvas. These are a couple of portraits I've done recently, and I would love some feedback on these. Don't be gentle, I can take it if need be. Thanks in advance!

Hard to find anything deserving criticism, though constructive. They're so fresh, spontaneous and masterfully executed that I'm sure find a quite broad appreciation both by the subjects and by the observers.
Congratulations and welcome!

awesome. a very illustrative style. excellent stuff. I hope you will share more of your work because you're really talented. I especially love the first two. those are great portraits and love the style. I especially like the first one where there is that intense gaze and viewpoint. all are excellent. more please.

You can have your photoshop brushes, but they have to be the old style brushes not the CS5 ones:

Importing Photoshop Brushes into ArtRage Studio Pro - YouTube (http://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=import%20photoshop%20brushed%20into%20artrage&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CFYQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DizX HicUy5F8&ei=1yWsT5HeCsr4mAXotMDhBA&usg=AFQjCNHHQo5CA_6j-eXrWGtpG4Q8X1IsYA)

The portraits are great. I very much like their simplicity and yet still have a quite strong mood to them.
