    Red face My first creation....

    (also posted in the work in progress area but no one has responded....I hope it's ok if I posted here!)

    Helloo everyone

    I am new to the forums and VERY new to art in general. I have had little to no experience with art so this is a whole new experience for me. I did actually start about a year ago on pencil sketching and learning how to see objects in a totally new light. I got some much needed help and experience through the Drawspace website which taught me some fundamentals but I have a looong way to go on learning! I really enjoy digital art, especially since all of the little tools are right here already! lol I LOVE the layer feature. It sure takes out the question of what came first, the chicken or the egg in creating something. lol

    After a year of waiting to purchase one of the full Art Rage programs, I finally got a little birthday money together and purchased Art Rage Pro a few days ago. However, the first ideas of what to play with and what to create were......NOTHING! lol I drew a complete blank (no pun intended). I am so overwhelmed by the vast amounts of things I could create with the numerous tools that are available in Art Rage Pro. I began looking through numerous images you all have created here in the forums and I came across a couple that really caught my eye that I would like to take a stab at.


    So, with all of that said, here is my image so far. I feel like it's missing something or needs help but I'm just not sure what! I could use some assistance from some real artists out there. Constructive criticism is much appreciated! I'll explain a little more about some of this after you all have a chance to view it.

    UGH btw, I had to resize the image for it to fit. It was 600X800 saved as a .png and it came out perfectly clear. It wouldn't fit I guess so I made it 460X680 and .jpg. It looks terrible on here.

    Not sure what saves best but I know it can come out looking better than this.

    Also, I free handed the notes on this image and wanted there to be some shadow but it just looks.....I dunno....bad! LOL

    Any ideas on this? and the blank areas? should they remain blank? would it be too busy with more included?

    Dear Fire, Hello!!! nice meeting you, lots of time to find your own ideas, this is a good start! it does looks familiar, maybe best to say who the artist was next time, keep up the good work and don't forget to have fun here!

    Thank you very much Lee. I will for sure. I hope that whoever did create the original will understand that this is definitely one of those images that caught my eye in a wonderful way. I appreciate their work. For sure.

    Thank you also, Ken

    I'm working on something new right now. Trying to create something for my best friend for her birthday in March. We'll see how it goes.

    just trying this out to see if I can link y'all to my photobucket page. That has the .png image that is much brighter and clearer. There's 2 choices of links that I'm unsure of. HTML? Or Direct?

    here's HTML:

    <a href="http://s258.photobucket.com/albums/hh248/FireFytingNut/Ts%20Artwork/?action=view&current=MusicMagicWithnoteshadow.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh248/FireFytingNut/Ts%20Artwork/MusicMagicWithnoteshadow.png" border="0" alt="My first Art Rage project"></a>

    here's direct:

    ::EDIT:: ok looks like Direct is the correct one to link you all there. Sorry, this is all new to me.

    YESSS I found her! The original is from Sabena's gallery website. She has SUCH beautiful work!!

    Sabena, if you see this, my apologies to you on not recalling where I had seen your image. I really sifted through so much that day and only picked out a few images but could not remember where I found yours. I LOVE your works!!
