    Painting of glass

    Hi all together,
    i painted a new intuitiv one and created
    some spirals of glass. Painting of glass
    is something very new for me and so
    i want to know if the lights and shadows
    looks alright. Or did i overdone this?

    Dear Stimpy, it's a great effect! really looks like swirled blobs of hot molten glass, or maybe sugar candy lollypops?, nice job!

    Very interesting effect like rubber and 3D feel too. I like it very much. A modern abstract like hanging in the gallery.

    you think i did it right?
    I enjoy that very much
    Thank you all

    Sugar candy lollypops are sometimes much more interesting than glass,
    good idea. :mrgreen:

    Maybe in summer this year i'll have an exhibition. Now it's
    sure for me that i'll print it out

    Oh year, painting those effects was fun for me.
    First i painted these swirls with the sharp edged knife.
    The swirls looked flat and boring. So i tryed to paint some
    lights with the airbrush on it. An "WoW", suddenly the swirls
    becomes to glass and popped out of the screen... :shock:
    It was a magical moment...

    I like this one a lot. It is like a still life painting of an abstract glass art piece. Very fun to look at.

    Hey Stimpy

    This is a soooo coool effect you have found there. That glass looks so real! It's a really fresh and new approach to using ArtRage. Never seen nothing quite like it.

    Would you mind posting some tricks as to how you acomplished such a great work?
    I don't understand how you can paint with the knife. You must have laid down some paint first, eh?

    It looks like there are distortions in the water, refractions - mirror effect. How did you get those effects?

    And the paintdrops. Esp. the lower left red/yellowgreen. Strong effect. How on earth did you do that?

    And how did you do that great leopard background? Looks allmost like some kind of fractal image.

    So many questions. Hopy you find some time to answer...

    As the earlier comments suggest, this is definitely not "overdone." Youve painted what looks like the effect of a photo filter. Thats not easily done. Its an excellent piece.

    Like DoodLS, Id like to read about how you created some of these effects--when you have the time or the inclination.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Ok no problem, i'll give some explanations.
    I didn't plan that. First i applied some red and green thick strokes
    with the brush. Then i used the knife with the sharp edge modus
    to make some swirls. No problem if there is enough color on the

    I scratched my head and decided to paint some background.
    A painting should start with the background, but no problem with
    artrage. So i created a new layer and drag it below the first one.
    The new layer was now the background and the first layer becomes
    the second one. Now it's important to set the opacity of the paper
    sheets correctly. The layer on top containing the swirls should have a
    transparent paper. The layer below need an opaque paper. In the paper
    settings of each layer there is an opaque knob to do this.
    Then i choosed a rough-textured paper grain for the background and
    set the roughness and scale values to 100%. Applying color is now
    easy with the chalk set to low pressure. The shading was done with
    a big airbrush (300 pix) set to very low pressure.

    That was the easy part. Now i become tired. But i promise tomorrow
    i'll describe how i painted these magic glass swirls without having
    glass spirals to look at...
    See you..
