    ArtRage - Bob Ross Edition! :)

    ArtRage has ability to simulate most of these techniques, but take a look at any of these Bob Ross videos on YouTube:

    http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...+ross+painting

    It would be cool to have some of these as more dedicated tools / effects:

    Liquid White Canvas Option
    Affects how paint is accepted on the canvas

    Dry Brush
    Proper behaviour for brushes with no paint loaded, for blending, fluffing up clouds etc.

    Different Brushes
    Fan brush, round brush, liner (rigger) etc. so you don't have to spend too much time constantly changing your brush pressure, loading and thinner etc.
    Maybe each brush type also remembers it's colour too, as if you had several virtual brushes by your side.

    Mixing Palette
    Maybe not quite a big as Bob's! But would be useful nonetheless!

    Loaded Palette Knife
    Ability to have a roll of paint loaded on the palette knife for scraping colour on top of the canvas

    I believe any of these tools would be in-keeping with ArtRage's philosophy - intuitive, natural painting, without being a bloated package like Painter!

    Cheers
    Matt

    I never herd of Bob Ross until I got to the ArtRage Forums.

    Thanks for the link. Now I know what so many are talking about.

    There was an old Swiss geezer on TV whose first name was Bill . . . (Can't remember his last name -- Andersen or something). White haired, always wore a smock, and I thik even occasionally wore a beret.

    He was heavier than Bob Ross, and where Bob Ross is soft spoken, Bill was friendly but a tad more dramatic. He had the 'Almighty Vhite' that he used to love saying in his German accented English as he broadly brushed in his paint.

    But the paintings could have been done by the same guy. Same technique, same look. Bill might have been a tad more impasto.

    Very fun. Thanks.

    I've been nagging the Rage team for a year now. Keep up the pressure.

    You've only been nagging us for five months. Stop exaggerating.

    Actually, Andy, since they're the nags and you're the nagee, there was another how-to tv art guy named John Nagy from the 1950s.

    He looked like a cross between the 1950's tatoo devil (right next to the tatoo of the dice) and a dark haired version of Gilligan from the island.

    His pitch was, "You can draw anything by using just a sphere, a cyllinder and a cube. . ."

    Hanzz would have loved him. Very graphically ripe for caricature. Too bad few would know who he was anymore.

    That's absolutely amazing AgedP! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I had tried multiple searches using various spellings. Started with a 'G'. :?

    I haven't seen that face in. . . well, since I was a kid.

    As to my decades old mind's eye picture, lose the Gilligan analogy, but keep the corny devil bit. How about that collar? And the hair tonic?

    You must admit, he's a caricature waiting to happen.

    Amazing that they are still producing those art kits. Can't be because of too much name recognition. :lol:
