First time poster........... please go easy on me, as i've only had Artrage for about a week and still learning :)
It took me about twenty minutes to come up with this and I admit, it's not very good. I thought lots before posting, as some of the art work on here is absolutely fantastic and didn't particularly want to embarrass myself, but eventually took the plunge and thought, 'it's the only way I'm going to learn'.
So here goes..............

Hi hmfc,

If in doubt, post!

Having been around here for over a year I am amazed at the progess people make using ArtRage.

Well meaning criticism. :D

The Swan's head is perfect but it's neck would broaden as it reached the body. I suspect if you filled that lower curve in on the right hand side that would fix it.

Where the Swan touches the water on the left hand side is great, but the right hand side has got a bit squared off. Just curve it slightly to match the left hand side.

You understand reflections well, the reflected neck may need a bit of change if you alter the real neck.

This was not just a nag, I think you're going to be good at this.

If you can't see what I mean I can tweak the painting and re-post it. But I really hate people doing that to my stuff without asking. :)

Hi Phil
Thanks for your advice mate, much appreciated.
I think I get what you're telling me, but just to make sure, I'd be delighted if you could tweak the painting for me when you get a minute, so I can double check.

Hello everyone.

I'm a Graphic Designer and amateur illustrator from Brazil, just starting to discover the fun of the tablet.

When i subscribed to the forums, i've been here for a while, just looking at the folk's works and learning with them. So i had problems with my PC and stopped for a time... Now that i'm back, resolved start putting some stuff here so everyone can see...

This is my first post ever, and this is one of the first drawings i did with my tablet using artrage. Took a little less than 20 minutes. Nowadays, i'm using it as base for another studies on other techniques in artrage... this means the reptile maybe appears over here another time

Great dogfight, I feel the action.

and I like Pai's blending fantasy.

Advanced (Aged) P, nothing like role playing against the Danes to inspire such images, wot?

When I was playing, I was very active in drawing elements from the imagination. RPGing online was one of the most visual non-visual experiences.

Delightful stuff. And all the better since it was painted so quickly. Keeps it all pure fun.

He's right Pai, it's beautiful. Just because it's spontaneous doesn't mean it's not art. Beleve in yourself, you're a natural artist. Everyone here believes that except you.

How did I miss this reply. Sorry. I went to bed I think. I think you are talented at whatever you touch Pai.

D Akey
06-20-2007, 06:19 AM
Hi Pai,

"Natural artist" is a real compliment. It means you are born with an artistic sense in you. It means that you would display quality even without training.

It means that you have a head start, whether it's a good eye, or a good sense of color, or design etc. Any or all of these qualities are implied by that broad statement.

-------------

As to the paintings, I really love the one that reminds me of a conception in RS085. 'Conception' has several meanings. It's that moment when life begins -- whether the life of a biological organism, or an idea, or painting.

And all those notions are what I get from your painting.

I particularly like the paintings you do that bring together all your artistic skills, where it shows more polish and a little more geometry as a design feature. Those pictures feel more finished to me. There are still many good things about all your work, but I think some look more tentative and experimental and less finished.

That's appropriate, considering many are exactly that -- experimental. But perhaps you have also some successfully finished pieces in there as well.

Those might suggest a finished look -- something to keep in mind when you begin hooking together what you are learning into your dominant, very personal, carved out, unique method that sets you apart. It's personal because all of it comes from your trial and error (and successes).

Hanging on to the stuff that works won't lock you in necessarily. But it will allow you to anchor one very solid approach that could serve you when and if you decide you want to paint specific things like people. You would be able to envision human form (for example) though the style you've been putting together.

On the other hand, you may want to lean toward total abstraction when you're dealing with concepts and feelings. That's cool too. But your continuity would lie in your approach. That's where Pai the artist would show herself in each of her paintings.

Excellent work.

You now have manifested good methods for doing the beginnings, the middles and the ends. This will likely evolve over time, but right now there seems to be plenty for you to work with.


:D :D :D

I really appreciate your comments and the insight of my paintings. That's a lot for me to digest every word you wrote. :) It's true that I've already felt getting more and more thinking in my head but need time to process them. Sometimes I felt sorry I couldn't write more to respond to you. Maybe I'll do that in my paintings. :)

Cool!

Without the eyes he looks like a shaggy sheep dog turned human.

"Where's the wolf? Wolf! Wolf!"

Would make a good animated character.


I'd mind the width of the folded over top of the boots. What would they look like from the side? If you're trying to maintain the width of the folded over bit, that is.

There was a style of boot that the leather was actually higher to the front, I assume for negotiating dense vegetated areas, or to serve as protection to the front of the legs.

But these look like they might be the evenly folded over kind.

Nice drawing though. Very nice.

Caesar, nice. Looks like something that we would expect to see in the American west. I'm sure they have this look in Italy since Italy reminded me so much of the US in the vegetation and terrain.

Nice colors and the blurry quality is as if this were a vision in my mind, or I'm looking at it in your head rather than on my monitor.

Cool.

Caesar
08-06-2007, 08:07 AM
Thank You D Akey! It was only a mental exercise using colours to suggest a landscape and I'm sincere saying it's not wothhile.
I'm glad it reminds You some place in US. I'm sur imilarities exist between US, that is almost a continent with a great variety of environments and Italy having latitudes not dissimilar. Italy, on its turn, notwithstanding the limited size, has also a great variety of landascapes, but everything has quite a different scale and is lmost everywhere densely populated for a country which is mostly made of hills and mountains and only a true big plain in the north. So here You rarely feel lonely in a savage and hostile environment also because the sea, rivers and winds adverse conditions never produce heavy disasters. We have a very long coastline and two big island with incredibly nice lanscapes (many Sardinia shores, beaches, coasts and sea are among the best in the mediterranean and might compete with many tropical places), other places like Portofino and the Cinque Terre (near Genoa) or Amalfi or Capri etc. are absolute natural sea looking wonders. Our parks and mountains from north to south are not rarely various expressions of paradise. The Italian Alps have (in common with France and Switzerland) the highest tops in Europe and the Dolomite Group of the Italian Alps have perhaps many of the most beautiful mountain landscapes with the incredible colour of their rocks, the grass, woods and alpine lakes.... As You said in the past, our country was really blessed by God! We probably realised this since long time and tried to be somehow grateful and we answered with man made masterpieces. A great deal of them (temples, churches, paintings, statues et..) were thus dedicated to Divinities before, then to Him and his Saints.

My first ArtRage image was under 30 min but I started with the rose image from the tutorial as a tracing. I decided liked it enough that I decided to put it in my blog and write about ArtRage. :)

Attached is my second ArtRage image, it is my first image from scratch.

I probably could've done a better job but I lost a little time trying to figure out why the colors were working so weirdly. LOL, then I realized that "Metallic" was turned way up (my boy had been painting with metallic yesterday). I do like the idea of trying to paint within 30 min, it's a good exercise.

I painted this late on Christmas Eve. I was up wondering what the soldiers were doing on Christmas and started surfing. I found this picture of cadets in working together in training and it made me think of Proverbs 27:17, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.". I used the tracing feature and did it in around 30 minutes. I put in my gallery but decided to wait until after Christmas to post it here as I was concerned that posting a painting of soldiers on Christmas might unintentionally convey the wrong impression and offend.
http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/gallery2.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=9455

I did it large in ArtRage, so before shrinking it down I ran a Smart Sharpen in Photoshop in order to preserve the crispness of the strokes that I could see before downsampling

You just keep getting better and better.

Fantastic. Nice broken mark style. Has a real rhythm. Interesting how the BG reflects the hair. Whether directly intentional or not, it has a unity around which all else pulses. But it does not interfere with the girl's appearance. It's almost like the whole thing is an ornament to and around her without being rigid or formal. The painting describes her very well, I think.

In my mind's eye, I think know her type based on what you have done -- the type who can make beauty out of anything in her environment -- very earthy. Perhaps even a Zen sensibility as the rows remind me a little of a Zen garden with the sand raked in rows, though not slavishly reflective of that. Yet I get a kind of "Ah, so" flavor to this portrait.

Nice work.

The less time it takes the less Your art fury and raptus suffer add-on technical structures and gets out pure! :D :D

juliediane, that's a pretty snazzy colored relief sculpture. Pleasing design.

I guess not thinking, or at least out speeding one's inner critic, sometimes works. Worked really well here -- not that you have such conflicted creativity.

But I can tell you that I do, and it's really good getting to where I can turn it off.

Good one!

D Akey
02-24-2008, 09:10 PM
Robert, that's a really good one. I like the look very much and I think you could develop it into a blend between a modern art experimentation combined with the edited simplicity of graphic art. Suggests some neat directions.

Keep at it.

With your reaction to another abstract where you said 'Hmmmmmmmmm', I thought you were judging it as not very interesting. Little did I know that the sound you made was the sound of digestion.

Excellent. It looks very fun and visually active.

juliediane

Naaaaaa........ I never judge anyone as non-interesting. Everyone is individual in their thinking and style. Hmmmmm.... is just that.. me thinking, and that usually gives me a headache. LOL I have somethings that I have painted. And they are so odd... they are all Hmmmmm......
sometimes we just gotta paint odd. Pssssst......digestion huh. LOL

I have been really enjoying these wonderful paintings and happened
to notice the latest well sketched entry by "odemilson" on rough paper
and thought the ornery, horned and well hoofed devil might need a friend
to cheer him up! :eek:

It also gave me an opportunity to practice sketching the human figure,
a skill that I am still working on.

Hope you like Roses, Mr. Devil!!! :)

Hey Mairzie...nice dreamlike (or nightmare-like perhaps) quality to this. Kind of a surreal and insubstantial look to the subject...except for the eyes, which are piercing. :eek:

jbyrjbyr1,
Am truly flattered that you are (shutter!) enjoying "Little Miss Blue Eyes",
thank you! :)
I give much of the inspirational credit to PWQuack's great new painting of
an intensely glowering monster with piercing, red eyes. Was on my way
to shutting down my p.c. but decided to view his latest entry and ........
PING! ... I was instantly inspired by PWQ's creative painting, was then
overcome with that painterly feeling of, as you mentioned, the "vampire
days of yore" nature and decided to see what I could do in about 30
minutes. My blue eyes WERE really tired so I attempted to reflect the
feeling. Had much fun with it. :)

Taron,
I know just how you feel because I also can slide into a "creature" mood
but haven't painterly congered any up like your cool 30 minute "speed
demons."
What fun with the paint brushes you've had! The main character's wrap
around wings are to die for and I just love those little, quizzical orb faces.
I want to squeeze them and love them, sooooooo adorable they are! :)

Earlier today I decided to pop into this thread and glance at a page or two; 40 pages later I caught my breath. I'm amazed at the quality of many of these quickies (I'm usually still clearing my throat and twiddling my thumbs at 30 minutes).

I was inspired, despite reservations, to try this challenge and actually set my cell phone alarm for 30 so I wouldn't get wrapped up and still be drawing as tomorrow made an appearance.

I have an interesting (if somewhat limited) reference book called DRAWING THE HEAD and have been going through it as time permits; while I personally feel it has a few flaws, I also believe it has some fascinating concepts (especially for a complete beginner such as I). Anyway, I'm trying some of the book's techniques for this 30 minute special. No doubt I'll eventually come back to this very rough picture and fool around with it when I DON'T have to watch my time! Used chalk (first time trying it) and a little knife.

jbyrjbyr1,
May I say .... WOW! This is such a beautifully painted eye .... soooooo
expressive! I doubt that you could add any additional embellishments that
would be beneficial because the soft simplicity and focused gaze of this
demanding to be recognized eye, alluringly stands on it's own. There is
an intensity that is noticable in this piece.
Just beautilly well done in just 30 minutes. 30 minutes??? I am gracefully
jealous!!! :)

Here's a go at a time limited painting. This one took about 40 minutes. My young son is enthralled with Iron Man at the moment, so painting/drawing Iron Man is the best way to ensure I can use my iPad when he's around.

Painted in ArtRage for iPad, reference used, resized and sharpened in PS.

Hi,
Have been slow in responding but just had to mention how much I
am enjoying the all of the paintings as well as the updated entries.

gigicharm ... your painting reminds me of a feminine, flower topped
cozy hat that I wish I had in anticipation of the fast approaching winter. :)

gzairborne ... what a gorgeous landscape ... you are a master of color,
form and expression. What talent! :)

JoshSouza ... A great Iguana sketch. I think he already ate the fly
that was buzzing overhead. :)

Briex ... Your landscape, Coal mine light house, White Roses and South
Limburg Landscape are all wonderful. "White Roses" is so beautiful. :)

JoePhoto ... Wow! Iron Man looks much like the original Iron Man movie
character but with emotive, personalized artistic flair. :)

timp ... Gira Sleeping, even though you mentioned incompletion, is
touching. A really charming painting. :)

WolFNinja ... Just love the whimsical Owl piece. It appears as if this
owl is as wise as the fables suggest. :)

and ...
to the point that your wishful, dream spun piece has inspired me to
create my impression of the other side of wishing on the moon so to
speak. It took the still learning, likes of me a little more than a half
hour to place my thoughts onto canvas but here it is and the title ...
"In His Shadow." :)

is so beautiful, just love the unique expressive moon, heavenly colors and

My turn! I wanted to mostly mess around with blend modes on the layers.

PAI and Peter: love your entries: Fun to resurrect this thread.
Here, exactly 30 minutes just throwing paint. No time to clean it up, but it was fun. :)
I much recommend to zoom full screen and view at a distance. It will be a very different painting.

I admit I tried this challenge once on a different image, and I thought it was cr*p, and so chucked it about 15 minutes in and labeled it a "warm up." ;) Given that, I started over and this took about 35 minutes. I have a presaved doc with canvas size, an imported Texture Overlay and Layer Textures all set up-- a la Roy Blumenthal's method. That saves some time too.

This was a great deal of fun, and the experimentation with various media as well as playing with Blend Modes, Duplicating Layers, changing transparency, and moving them around came right out of the thread "What makes digital art digital art?" That was a great conversation.

I don't know if I ever added this, but this was a one word prompt with a 30 minute timer from some time ago... I should probably do some fresh work, but I have a lot of unfinished works that need attention.

Woah, great quickie Steve and Magen. So happy more people join in 30 mins fun.

I am doing this one again to cheer up my friend who has been sick long time just now. Very quickie one as I was doing another painting but want to send my friend a happy one.

MagenSparks,
The solemn nature of this winter's scene of chilled beauty is both powerful yet somehow peaceful in
nature. Just love the predominate presence of the formidable tree that seems to have much to say in
it's impressive presence. :D

Can't believe that I am able to view and hopefully respond to your lovely painting. Have been plagued
with p.c. problems for 3 months now and have been unable to access/respond to any of the Art Rage
forum posts. (and not much of anything else) Here's hoping when I click the 'submit reply' tag, you will
receive this.

Copespeak, yours reminds me of the rain forest, with several levels of foliage linked with vertical vines. Dripping with moisture and colour. I love imagining!

Thank you Pai and Lin! Dribbles are hard to do in AR.

Here is another. The other morning was a real 'red in the morning' kinda start and I took lots of pics. Our hills and sky were alight with colour, and I loved the way the edges were picked out with red gold.

This was actually the first attempt for a self portrait ever. I made a single line sketch of my face from a reference picture. Then added some schading using a pencil with precision turned off so I could set the slope to 75% to mimic charcoal. Worked on the right with some black/blue watercolor to mimic ink. The background is on a separate layer, combination of colored chalk, 'inky' watercolor and used the knife to smudge parts of it.

Drawing on a tablet is still very new for me, and goodness I really have to get used to it still!! Its difficult!
I love it though.
I tried a portrait because I am horrible at portraits, and hope to learn (some day) to do it better. I decided that the tablet is a good tool for practice purposes.
I always shy away from portraits, they are so terribly difficult. But the time has come to step out of the comfort zone :) lol

So here is my first 30 minute tablet attempt. Constructive feedback is always very welcome.
I used a reference picture, but did not trace (as you can see :P)

I tried to color it a couple of times but then the time was up, coloring it right is hard I think.

Hey there again,
I know I am new and should not post too much but its a bit addicting.
I found a new tool that I liked, so I tried again until the 30 minutes where over (so its not finished yet).
I decided to stop using the reference picture, it makes me nervous :) lol, so this one is more fantasy.

Hi All.
Thanks to Yngve, Marilyn Anne and FantasyShades for their recent contribution.
Picking here and there in the 50 pages of the thread I find really amazing how people can be creative in 30 minutes !

Here is a small painting that I have done with AR in ... around 25 minutes.
