Thread: Real Color Blending

    Real Color Blending

    Hi, I downloaded AR 3 Studio Pro to try out for 15 days.
    I have ArtRage 2.5 for quite some time now.
    I was very interested in the Real Color Blending, because I am used to work with real paint on a palette.
    That would be close to my experience as an artist.
    I do not know if the try out version has this option locked, but it certainly is not activated.
    Does anyone know how this could happen?
    Thanks in advance,

    Click in the preview of current color in the color picker
    there's an option to set real color blending.

    Does not work

    Hi, Hans.
    I tried this, but it does not show Real color blending.
    It says it is active, but whatever I do HS/H Color Picker remains active. I am not sure if this color picker blocks real color blending, but the color picker looks just the same as before activating Real color blending.

    Rob, real color blending is something that affects the paint on your canvas. You can always use a separate layer as a palette and use the real color blending feature to mix your paints there.

    Thanks for your reply, Danny.
    I had wished to get a real kind of palette in the color picker area, but your idea of mixing in a separate layer could work indeed.
    Mix the color and then make the layer invisible.

    Rob, I've found the real value of real color blending is when I want an effect on the canvas of running two colors together for visual color texture in an area. If I just want a particular color to paint with it's easy enough to just select it from any of the various color pickers. But if I want to see colors beautifully blending together in the painting, that's where the beauty of real color blending has it's visual, painterly strength.

    Thanks, Byroncallas.
    That's an impressive example.
