Hi guys

I'm a freelance illustrator by trade and long time Artrage user (most of my work is done in Artrage)
Just saying hi, I've been meaning to join the forums for a long time and am really looking forward to meeting fellow Artrage painters. Anyone else from SA?

Been carrying the torch for Artrage for years, good to see its getting more recognition as a serious digital art tool. Like most people, I love its fluid AI and its stability. My most popular pieces have almost always been the ones I've created in Artrage.

Welcome! Looking forward to seeing your offerings. Love the concept behind your avatar. I'll just bet your stuff will be very cool to see. I've heard that South Africa, once overlooked, musically is starting to get more and more notice worldwide, certainly in Europe. They may have done for some time, but I just recently backed into some stuff from down your way on YouTube and I rarely look at the date they were posted. So is there an upswing with notoriety for South African artists as well?

There was a fellow a couple years back who came on here from South Africa, if memory serves, who was using ArtRage for presentations at lecture talks, with someone else doing the talking and he was doing graphic "doodling" spontaneously that was projected on a screen as something of a visual aid for interest and to keep people on it. Sort of a newish use for the technology of iPad and so on. Can't recall his name though. Oh, and there's a lass who is from South Africa as well, though I can't recall her handle off the top of my head. Good stuff. So you may bump into them here. And there could be others from out your way. Would be curious to know that as well.

Anyway, cheers. :cool::):):):):)

South Africa is gaining notoriety in so many fields lately...;) I think out of the arts our musical scene has always been strongest at an international level. As far as contemporary fantasy art and such, we are still quite behind. Most of my client base is overseas. We have a lot of up and coming artists, but fields of sustainable employment locally are still -very- limited.

Thanks for the welcome. :)
