    Nice surprise from DigitalArtist Magazine

    Hi all,
    a few hours ago i got an email from the UK Magazine DigitalArtist.
    At first i thought it was spam But they
    asked me if they can include my ArtRage 3 brushes on the
    magazine's cover CD along with a description and a link back to my
    deviantArt page. For me that's a great opportunity for free advertising.
    I'll ask them if they include a link back to this forum too. (To my thread
    in Art Supplies containing my 100 brushes)
    But before i answer I want to ask you: What do think about that?
    Outside this forum i was never discovered by a commercial company, so
    I'm not sure...

    Thumbs up

    Stimpy,

    Thats very cool! Our very own celebrity! Do the brushes work with photoshop too or other graphics programs? I am guessing they do which is why they want to promote them on the cover of the magazine. They are obviously going to be very useful to many of the readers.

    I think it a great idea and opportunity for you as well. Are they paying you for this or just giving you credits? It is a professional magazine.

    A link to the downloads will bring in many many Non-Ragers to the forums here. That is a nice opportunity for them to see our forums and artrage, perhaps for the first time. They may have many questions as do all new to artrage.


    Good luck and Happy Brush Making gone Bigtime!

    How wonderful, Stimpy! Congratulations!!! Those brushes though are just great and it doesn't surprise me one bit that they have contacted you to include them on one of their CDs. I love those brushes and I have so much fun playing with them and AR. I am just delighted to hear that your brushes have been noticed from the outside! What a great opportunity for you...enjoy the limelight...you deserve it!!!

    Cool... feel honoured... I purchase their magazine monthly and I'll enjoy seeing your name in print...

    If you check out their home page... You're see I'm listed as one of their top forum posters...(I think I'm ranked 3rd)...

    Before it was cancelled, I had two of my images selected to appear in the reader's section of their sister Official Paint Shop Pro mag... I guess that was one of the reasons the magazine got cancelled after 8 issues, they were desperate for content... LOL...

    Cheers & keep us posted...

    Hi,
    thanks all for your kind words
    Now I'm sure what to do (in this case).
