    New member. HI to all!

    I just received and installed my artrage deluxe 2 yesterday.
    So far I've been able to open it and play. (I had some experience with Painter and Photoshop (novice/beginner user) so I know a little.

    But I know I'll have lots of questions for the experts here.

    Thanks to you all. I've been lurking here for a short while while waiting for my ArtRage to be delivered.

    I use a Wacom art pad (old one) on a PC with Vista. So far, in my doodling, I haven't come across any problems, except my own novice-ness. <g>

    First, of many, questions: Is there a way to simulate watercolor? (I obviously haven't delved into the ways to alter each tool.)

    Would my questions be better put in a different forum?

    Welcome Lymie!
    Most attempts at watercolor are simulated by using oil brush with lots of thinner or by adjusting layer opacities to low. Also paper texture has a way of showing off some water color attributes.

    O.K.----I'll try some of these suggestions later today, after mundane things are taken care of. (Washing dishes UGH!)

    Thanks. <g>

    And let me add my welcome to you as well! For what seems a relatively simple program, there is a lot to be discovered as you "play" with all the variables. You will enjoy!!!!

    Look forward to seeing some of your work.
