Hi all,

I will make A special ArtRageUS Magazine just for this.... Myan 2012

I found this photo and thought that you may want to test your skills for self improvement. Take your time, do the best that you can.

You can create a stencil or just trace it. The Myan is the subject..use any other image for reference/stencil as you wish instead. add your own background, ie: Temple or scene. ANY Wording can also be added (like on a poster).

All must be done in ArtRage....no other program or plugin. Lets see what you can do creatively in ArtRage. You have all the tools you need,,,, so sharpen up those skills guys.

PDF Format: H-2048 x W-1024 200PPI .PNG Makes a nice poster/book/magazine or print size and for quality.

All enrties must be emailed to me for use in the PDF..at. [email protected] ([email protected])

Include your AR Screenname RE: Myan


Take your time, be creative

YOU have until May 31 ..... that's 2 weeks from now.. (5/14/2012)

All entries will be included in the special Myan Issue of ArtRageUS Magazine "MYAN 2012" PDF version out June 4, 2012 and will be available on www.artrageus.net (http://www.artrageus.net)
(Yes, I kept the website going so all Ragers New and old can download any back Issues.....at my own expense).

Everyone is a winner here as it is not a competition but a practice for yourself, your skills and creativeness.

Take your best shot Ragers and enjoy sharpening those skills.... be sure to sign your painting and copyright mark..

Hi Bobby,
I'm not sure if I'm going to participate yet, I'd like to, but I had a quick question. Are we locked into that aspect ratio?

Intriguing idea, dear Bobby! I've got an idea I hope I'll be able to turn in time into a good enough piece, one style or the other (I've got many arrow types in my quiver, unfortunately none as good as I wish) ...:o

Jbeau....it is best if you can... I forgot ipad/iphone users may want to participate too...sorry...

Use whatever size is the largest that you can..... at 200ppi Verticle format so it fits better on the large A4 sized pdf page. Hope that you join in......

Caesar....hehe I thought you might have an idea and entry... looking forward to it....


Please do not post your entry images here in this post or your gallery.... We want all of the entries to be first seen in the PDF mag... Thanks all.

Hi guys,

Relax we have 2 weeks to have them finished and submitted....take your time and do the best that you can, that is what this is all about, not pushing the limit to get a painting done. Spend all the time you can on it....make it the best that you can do. All forms of ArtRage users are encouraged to submit one entry.

We all have busy schedules and lives... do what you can when you can to meet the deadline. MAY 31

Lets have some fun with this.....no stress or worries....we are all winners if this helps you to learn more.

So, kick in the Layers, stencils and your creative imagination.

I found many photos online to use parts of to trace/ layer and make stencils, then to paint them. Works great.

Have fun Guys and see ya in two weeks with all the ragers submissions in a PDF of ArtRageUS Magazine Special Issue Myan 2012

I understand why you don't want to show the work, but I kinda wish we could. For at least WIP. I could use some feedback in terms of what types of things would look better or if they are just hokey.

I have a question which is likely quite simple, but something I do not do," how does one save one's Artrage image in PDF format" ?
Thanks Geoff

Caesar

I didn't sent a PDF rather a PNG. Is it a problem and I have to change and send again it as PDF?

Hi Bobby, I send mine now. Hope is good enough.:o:o
I don't know if pdf format is ok, it's very heavy.
I have png format too, may send this if the other is not right.

Thank you;)

Geoff, if you have photoshop, you can change your painting there, just bring your painting into photoshop and click on save as then click on the format bar and save as a pdf file, it took me about an hour to explore and find out how to do it lol

Thanks for that Pat I sent it in as a png file as I thought he mentioned just using Artrage, but if it is not ok I can do one in photoshop.

Glad to know of Your participation dear Jbeau as well as that of Silvia, Pat and Geoff.
We're at least five up to now and it's only the 22th! I can't wait to see the exhibition and enjoy Your masterful surprises!:) I suspect that also our host Bobby Ray too prepared some sort of gorgeous cake out of his recipes for us ...;)

Hehe

Well I decided to add some vanilla ice cream as well. I have a special artwork to add to the show, yup. We have many entries and they are all awesome but to keep them unseen until the Special Issue is out is suspenseful, no? hehe That's what makes it interesting and new, yes? Never before seen, art.

Ok guys and girls....keep em coming.... 1 per artist. Remember, this is about taking your time and hopefully learning something new with the ArtRage tools. Experiment and as we say in outer space; may the force be with you..... deadline May 31........Published on June 4 That gives me some time to do my magic and put it all together.


Be the best that you can be, if you are an artist, pro or just for fun..... see you soon :cool:

Hi Pat,

Yes if you would be so kind...... I have had many pdf pages sent with their art on it and my Adobe Acrobat Pro X will not read them....even Adobe Photoshops pdf page...weird.

Ragers,

Well we have time till the May 31 deadline for more submissions.

The verticle shape fits the magazine page orientation....full page shot... for everyone.

Guys....this not a contest. This is to learn new tools and techniques in a new style perhaps. A challenge for and by yourself. There is no competition here and no matter what your level or ability, you can learn something new with ArtRage and improve your skills at the same time to become better. Wala, your also having fun and taking your time to do a better painting. If you learn something new , them you have succeeded. We are family, we are Ragers. We promote, encourage learning and teaching all Rager artists.

ArtRageUS Magazine Special Edition Myan 2012 coming June 4, 2012 Be a part of it, it is about you.

I thought the one that fits is:
