    AR to Traditional -- my version

    Inspired by Eddie's excellent thread, here's a look at my conversion of an AR painting into a physical acrylic. (Painting size: 24" x 36" time: 4 hours)

    First the ArtRage version, followed by the acrylic, followed by the WIP shots:

    This is fantastic Al! I don't think I ever mentioned in my thread that is was your violin painting you posted a while ago that actually got me on the traditional kick! When I saw your version both in AR and in traditional... It got me thinking! So thank you!

    This turned out excellent! I like how you built up the color with the acrylic to give a nice under painting of color! The resemblance is incredible. AR is quite the tool for planning a traditional medium painting! I also enjoyed Jules thread where she then took the traditional, imported it back into AR and took it further. The two environments are turning out to be more compatible than I first thought they would be. You never know, the end result may end up being a hybrid of digital and traditional - Tradigital! Beautiful painting!

    Wonderful AL, this type of work represents a real breakthrough in the use of the program AR3. Simply wonderful, Al, your initiative is highly appreciated.

    From Artrage to acrylics, good to see another painter using this powerful tool in both mediums. They complement each other. Great palette on both!!

    Thanks to all for viewing and commenting, but particularly to Ed for getting me going. I've added a new thread in the Tips and Tricks section that takes things a bit further.

    Ed: "Tradigital" is perfect. Love it.

    TonyJazz: Thanks! Try as I might, I cannot escape from my pallet for good or bad.

    AT-TA: I look forward to seeing some examples!

    Jibes: There were a few brush strokes that I wished I could immediately discard, fortunately a wet paper towel comes in handy for those cases. I do find i can copy the digital up to a point and then I have to turn off the monitor and bring it together as a physical painting at the end.
