Hi guys & gals,
Now that we can also upload .cpr files (thanks AR team!), here is a my impression of a brick wall canvas which you can download and play with.
You can make some nice effects with the chalk tool (set the pressure real low). Play around with all the tools and settings and see what you can come up with.
Also attached is a pic of what you will be downloading with a few metallic airbrush strokes (and a few non-metallic ones). On the right side is what I did with the chalk tool. You get the idea?
1. Dowload the .cpr file and drop it in your the following directory:
C [or other HD where you installed AR]:\Documents and Settings\[your computer name]\Application Data\Ambient Design\ArtRage 2\Resources\Presets\Canvases
2. Download the little grayscale *jpg image (the black and white image next to the painted wall) and drop it in the following folder:
C [or other HD where you installed AR]:\Program Files\Ambient Design\ArtRage 2\Resources\Grains
Fire up AR and the new canvas should show up in your canvas presets as "yvan's brick wall".
I've redone the whole thing today (12 July 2008) as some of you could not get it to work before. I really hope the gremlins have no been sorted out.
I tested the files on a different PC and they seem to be OK now.
PLEASE take the time to download and try the files and let me know whether all is fine now (or not).
You can also try the workaround here: http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13391 if you have trouble making it work.
