I heard about ArtRage on a Blender forum when I mentioned I was gonna get a graphics tablet. I sure am grateful to the person who gave me the linkie! I downloaded the trial, and two days later got the full version, and I love it.
My graphics tablet was an inexpensive model, but since I am a beginner with one, I decided that I'd go with the mid-price model.
I love dabbling in computer graphics, especially 3D imaging programs. I've got Photoshop 7, the GIMP2, Maya PLE8.5, Blender2.45.15, Milkshape3D, Wings3D, and of course, ArtRage.
I've briefly perused the forum here and have already found a wealth of helpful information.
I am happy to make your acquaintance! Have a lovely evening, everyone!
