HEllo! Noobie here- love artrage1 I had used the previous free version for several months, but made the jump o full paid version..on a Ac. Exactly what I had been searching for and what I was longing for/frustrated with Photoshop about! I use the two programs together often...I just wanted that real painterly look and feel of ..well paint. Yay!

You are so professional. This is so great illustration and yes I love how it looks so painterly. That's why I love Artage so much :)

Wow! Thanks everyone for the compliments and welcome :) I used to use Corel Painter(which is really similar to the stamp adj properties of PS? only brush I really used a bunch was the wet oily brush) , so I have some experience with 'reactive' brushes/programs...but Artrage is much more friendly and easy to use! Only weird couple of things I am trying to figure out-
1. sometimes if I zoom in to paint details when I zoom back out- it has cropped in on the image! I cannot always reverse that or go back to a previously saved image either...not sure what i am doing wrong.
2. The colour changes pretty drastically when I import into PS for final details or formatting. I am not sure if this will happen in printing or ot, and have not had the guts to see yet! The Artrage colours will look amazing, and then look greyed and low contrasted, loss of a lot of detail in PS. Both programs are RGB...and thats the extent of my knowledge on it! Same monitor with calibration every 6 months. I'm mystified :) I suppose I will need to get prints made after saving the same image in both programs, its really hard to ignore the difference. I often need to go to PS or LR to add my logo or watermark etc, sometimes to add finishing details as I am not yet completely confident with the Artrage controls and brushes for detailing..I use a wacom if that makes sence..its a control on my part issue as to WHY I need to go to PS now.

Anjeanette, you must go trough technical section of the forum, try a search there.... but as i remember it is wrtitten in the manual that on export to psd canvas texture and lighting setting are lost... This may induce differences. But you better ask further, i did not use exports except jor jpg, so far.. I hope i remember things right

If you go to View > Canvas Settings > and uncheck canvas lighting, you'll see the colours truer, you will also lose the visual sense of paint depth (the shadows and highlights on each brushstroke). The tradeoff is synergy with other image editors, like photoshop, I suppose.

Your painting is lovely, I like the floating hair.
