New to the program. New to this site. Here is my first attempt.
It was fun. Still learning the program, but decided to play anyway. :D
Added the letters in Photoshop and adjusted the levels too to darken it.
Hope that is permitted.

Excellent start gzairborne, yes you are allowed to use other programmes to enhance your work. Althought ArtRage is a great piece of software, there are still a lot of things it cannot do.

Welcome to this site friend and lets see more of your work. Brian :D

Your painting made me smile, I love shoes!!! Especially ones like that! Actually, Artist signed & painted sneakers are quite a good idea! Probally the next Rave! Eagerly awaiting your next creation!

I just had to try a Pollock. I suppose it has been done before... but here is mine anyway. lol

Thank you both for the warm welcome! Well, I am exploring the program as you can see. Wish I had a style like Brian..He should teach! but it is kind of fun to just play, which I am doing for now. Or maybe always. lol

Well, Florida girl when you start that business up don't forget my royalty check. lol
Thank you for the welcome!

Still having some fun with ar2.
And experimenting…
This is really an awesome group of people here.
Thanks to all! I just noticed the apple in there.
Did I mention I am a mac fan. lol
Think different!

A fish actually started out as first attempt, but not finished.

04-24-2007, 05:26 PM
Love the fish. The metallic look works so well there.

04-24-2007, 05:37 PM
Thanks Dave,

Appreciate your comment.
And thanks for not mentioning the square bubbles.

Gz :D

Where's the wonderful little quick-sketch of the fields that you did with the felt pen technique, hmmmmm?


04-26-2007, 09:49 PM
Hey KD,

It is over in another thread called Lake and Land where D helped me with a critique on the fish, I couldn't delete it over there because the comments would then make no sense. But I guess I could add it here to get the gallery thing going. Here ya go.

04-27-2007, 05:00 AM
Thank you, GZ.

I just simply like this sketch.

I think it reminds me watching the countryside roll by for hours on end when I used to drive.


04-29-2007, 04:44 AM
Hi gzairborne, just had a look at your work, very impressive, I like the way your experimenting with AR. Keep up the good work.

04-29-2007, 11:46 AM
Thanks KD! Exactly, I was going for the truck driving crowd. :) But I know what you mean it looks like about 50% of America. Lots of scenes like that in WA. Particularly in the Palouse with its rolling wheat fields and rolling clouds. lol Thanks Brian. Thank you for stopping by. And for the encouragement.

Searched for koalas found a photo and then added a little humor. It was just going to be an avatar. Turned into a painting project.

04-29-2007, 02:12 PM
From the paint my cat thread.

05-02-2007, 08:08 AM
Just a bit of playing with the brush tool.

05-02-2007, 12:12 PM
Lots of very fun work. I love the koala and cat -cats rule and dogs drool! ;)

05-02-2007, 08:03 PM
