Hello
I posted this at ImagineFX. Started off as a non specific doodle to test 2.5. I love this software :)

Hi Boxy,

This is professional work. Stunning!! . :D Is it all done with Artrage? How long does it take you to do one like this. Hope to see more of your works here.

Yowza, that's gorgeous! I love the detail you've put into it. The lighting is great, the mood, setting, surfaces - everything is awesome.

Great stuff!

Amazing and really professional work. I would like to know, too, if you did it all with artrage only. Which image size did you use for that?

I love the concept very much!

Hello
Thank you all for your kind comments. Yes it was all done in ArtRage except at one point quite early on I took it into photoshop to adjust a face with the liquify tool and a bit of hue saturation. Then again at the end I used the liquify tool to adjust an eye's perspective. I would say 99% ArtRage. It is A3 size, 5000 x 3508 pixels on 4 layers, and AR handled it well. Took about 36 -40 hours - need to work on getting that down, but then I didn't have an idea to begin with so that slowed me down. :)
I've subscribed to ImagineFX magazine and the quality of artwork in there every month is very inspiring. I told myself I need to strive to be better so I hope this is the first of many!
One thing I would say, working at A3 it would be handy if the brush size sliders went beyond 100% because double clicking to adjust does eat into the worflow somewhat. That aside though, very happy with AR.
Thanks again
Boxy

Duty free gift shop, if I ever saw one.

Brilliant image. Really well painted and very imaginative. Kind of designed on the shape of a devil's horn, was it? Cool.

Hi Boxy :)
I have just had a sudden change of mindset :!: :!:
Have to confess I have never been even remotely drawn towards paintings like this...........but..............THIS IS AWESOME
The details and colours are fantastic :!: :) :) :)

Thank you Marian. I am the same, its not the kind of thing I would normally do, but it came about as a direct consequence of being inspired by ImagineFX magazine. They say challenging yourself to do new things keeps the old grey matter alive :)

Hey. I was just revisiting this one and saw an unanswered question. You can take the brush sizes (and everything else) up to 500%. Just left click in the size area and type in a number.

Hi Robert - thanks for trying to help. I just answer this one for Boxy: I think he knows that he can change the brush size to more than 100% but he wants to avoid clicking on the size area because this is somewhat complicating the workflow. He mentions that...

(By the way - I didnīt even know that the brush size can be set to over 100%... :) )

Yes that's right, I wanted the size slider to go beyond 100% without having to call the extra dialog box, because I will always work at something around A3 size (standard stock image print). At that size 100% brush is just too tiny for the majority of brush work, its only the last stages for me that require finer stuff. I also don't much see the sense in a brush stopping at 100% since in reality it wouldn't matter if I went a little over or under.
Doh, I guess this all belongs in suggestions but while I'm at it, I would also like the brush size slider to appear in a right click contextual menu so you can adjust brush size at the cursor point without so much movement on the canvas or key shortcuts :)
Thanks both for the input though.
Cheers
Boxy

Great image, Boxy, but I didn't know about typing in brush sizes, so it was good for somebody.

Very, very nice, congratulations! I can't help but have to compliment you on your palette as well. Great color choices! My favorite aspect of the image is that it looks like it was fun to draw and paint!

Great stuff! :D
