    Hi, Ken!

    SketchBook Pro gives me speed.. it is very simple program to use..
    there is basic layers but no blending modes like ArtRage or Photoshop.

    What I like most about SketchBook is Transformation tools, Symmetry tools,
    and Rulers which are very basic but effective and helps a lot when doing
    early concepts of compositions.

    SketchBook interface is also very clever and fast to use.. zooming, rotating
    canvas, or transforming Layers -> Scale, Rotate, Move, Scretch.
    These also works much faster than in ArtRage. Also canvas size is not a
    problem when working with SketchBook. ArtRage is very slow when you work
    with print size material and use a lot of Layers. This is big problem
    sometimes

    What I like about ArtRage is it's ability to make easily different kind of
    textures, thanks to it clever canvases. Each layer can have a different kind
    of canvas texture and you can adjust anytime these, this is great.

    Of course ArtRage offer very realistic Natural media tools which are
    interesting. I like a lot ArtRage watercolors. SketchBook Pro seems very cold
    and digital.

    "I am longtime Painter user(almost ten years), but now it's gathering dust."
    This sentence is not true anymore..
    .. because somehow I got installed Procreate Painter 7 for my Vista 64bit
    machine.

    Procreate Painter 7 gives me different kind watercolors = different textures.

    Procreate Painter 7 is only version which I have really liked.. It is
    somehow different how it handles watercolors, it reacts more fluidy
    than a current versions like 11 and overall it feels more speedier now when I
    have a new workstation. Same is true about Adobe Photoshop 7, which I
    prefer more than CS3-CS5 (even if CS5 offers quite interesting new brush engine).

    These are my tools, and I am using all of them.. =]

    Question

    Wow, what a marvellous bunch it is!
    Sorry to bother you, but how can I properly install all your presets from here in AR3?
    I am not very skilful at it yet...
    Big thanx in advance for valuable help.

    Hi!
    Hope that helps..

    There comes.. couple "old" ones..
    Big Graphite Shaders are really good for.. eh.. shading pencil variants..
    Big Watercolor Spray.. is somehow "experimental"
    It "blend" colors... a bit... very strange...

    I wish that Sticker sprays .. "could" Smudge and Blend colors.
    This would be very very nice Improvement for ArtRage.

    Thanks!

    Love the sketchbook pencil, very sparse sprayer and the sea wave brush best so far... I think they're gonna be fun and quite handy....

    When I get a breather from the ca shows and digital photography, I think I'm gonna have a blast with these neat stickers... Lately ArtRage has been sitting on the shelf due to not enough time in the summer...

    Much appreciated....

    Ken

    I got the bug after playing with Tone's stickers and put aside my photo editing... I used Tone's Sparse Spray Sticker in the my latest painting "Castle in the Distance" which I just posted to the AR Gallery forum....

    Thanks Tone... I really love your stickers...

    Thank you very much, kenmo!
    It is very nice to hear that you liked my brush set.

    btw. your painting is very nice "Castle in the Distance"
    I like a lot the right side of the painting .. where the sun and the hill is.
