I haven't used Artrage since version 2 so I downloaded the demo and I figured I would try to replicate some of the work of Mark Behm. But I am having difficulty mimicking it digitally. Having the sharp edge to a blend feels and even simple things like the chaos of the background layer I have a hard to mimicking. The pictures below are my own attempts. I can't link to his videos (website limitation I guess) on youtube but if you search mark behm you can see the videos I am referring to that I am trying to replicate for practice.
