I purchased artrage2 a few months ago, but didn't have the chance or time to use it much since now. Then, a few days ago i saw this forum, looked at all the great work you people have done with artrage, and got inspired. I decided start painting daily whether it's for 15 minutes or 2 hours, so that i could actually improve. Anyway, i started painting yesterday, and this is the first painting i've been working on. I spent around 4 hours on it so far, it's still a work-in-progress.
To simulate an actual painting, i decided not to use any layers and do all the work on one, i guess i like making things difficult for myself. I'm using a photo as a reference, but my initial sketch was a bit off, so it's not totally alike.
Many thanks to AmbientDesign for this amazing software
