    This is not sci-fi, this is hi-fiction.
    I wish you good luck

    Thumbs up

    One of the artists Quotes:

    John Malcolm: I use Painter 11, Photoshop CS5 and Artrage Studio Pro. I use an Wacom Intuos4 Large tablet with my desktop PC, and have and older, smaller Intuos3 that sometimes gets used with a laptop.

    SciFi Art Now: Why?

    John: Artrage is great for starting things. It's just a very nice fast program for sketching. Being able to flip the canvas instantly by simply holding one key down (H or V) is a trick Adobe and Corel should learn from. It's also very affordable.

    Some people view sci-fiction and hi-"fantasy" fiction as two seperate entities. One would be more space ships and alien planets, laser guns and swords.

    Where the hi version would be more fantasy like elves and stuff more along the lines of orcs and goblins, things that have a bit of mythological nature to them.

    At least that has always been what I understood the differences to be. Libraries (least most of the ones I've been to, label them both as science fiction)

    The few pictures I did see could be either or, depending on the background. Hope that helps.

    Sounds like hi-fiction is similar to science fantasy....(Robert E Howard's Conan for example)...
