    Rangitoto camel

    Tools:
    Paint tube (for background)
    Airbrush (for sun)
    Pallette knife (for blending background
    Eraser (for revealing black paper layer underneath)

    Paper: colour black
    Colour load: Rangitoto sunrise

    I added colours on the top of black paper, then I used the eraser tool to reveal the black paper underneath.

    Ah. heh. Haven't looked there since I make so many of my own palettes for AR. One of my quirks. Love the control over color in AR.

    Anyway, looks like you have coordinated features of AR into a very successful image. Very creative and scientific.

    Rangitoto is an island just off the coast of Auckland. It is volcanic, and has a very distinct cone shape. In geologic terms, it is only very recently extinct - last eruption was around 800 years ago.
    It takes about 90 minute to get to Rangitoto by Ferry, and it's a two hours hike to the summit. The view from the top back toward Auckland city is breath-taking.
    In the tracing images folder of the ArtRage application resources you'll find rangitoto sunrise.jpg - that picture is taken from one of the beaches on the waterfront of Auckland city. Rangitoto is the island at the left.

    Jules, that's a fantastic silhouette. Brilliantly done. The background sky and sun definitely conveys the idea of hot desert.
    AndyRage's mantra for graphics engine code:
    "Sure - how hard can it be?"

    This explains how I do it (from the tips and tricks forum):

    http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums...pic.php?t=1704

    http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums...pic.php?t=1779

    That's how I do it.

    Ever envy somebody's color sense from a painting? The sky's the limit (no pun intended about Rangitoto for your painting )

    Photo, animation still, painting, anything at all. If you can grab it, you can turn it into a palette.

    And the good part is that you can then learn the colors so that at some point, you'll forget about other people's palettes altogether because you will have developed an inherent color sense from this process.

    It elimintes the mechanical hurdle of learning color from mixing, etc. (cause you've picked what already works mood wise.)

    Thus you can focus on other bits of picture making like composition, forms and surfaces, and the juiciest of all -- the intent of the painting/subject matter.
