    Saint Lou...2D/3D Mixed Media

    This piece is a mix of 3D (The character made in Z-Brush) with the background curtains, the halo, the smoke and blue pencil outlines done in ArtRage2. He's called Saint Lou because he reminds me of Lou Reed...

    Art Rage rocks because it lets me use natural media in a more realistic fashion than Photoshop. I'll probably do a bunch more in this general style as I have a ton of character heads I made in Z-Brush and they need backgrounds.

    It's been like 15 years or so since I drew or painted in any real volume. The other paint packages I played with were always technical feeling. Art Rage feels like the tools they are emulating.

    I painted this on my Alienware tower with my Wacom 6x8 because its hot as hell here in L.A. and my tablet PC puts out the equivalent BTUs of a nuclear power plant. If it's cooler tomorrow, the tablet gets used...
    :lol:

    Anyway, feel free to ask questions or have any ideas or suggestions or crits...

    hmmm, I don't see any crap here. A little edgy and unique, but no crap.
    Enjoyed your work.

    That looks excellent - you've mixed the 2D and 3D together very well.
    Welcome to the forums - I look forward to seeing more of your work!

    Cym: Thanks for coming along for the ride...Glad you had fun...

    Andy: Thanks for your kind words, Boss. Without your numerical gifts, I would
    be adrift in a sea of potentially cool art brewing in my cranium, forever awaiting birth...

    As you helped in the delivery, wash up, please... :lol:

    Hi Dickie,

    Superb work!

    The ability to bring in stuff and make it better is one of the things I love about Artrage.

    It's still spooky to scan in a real oil painting done years ago and then improve it!
