    Well, my first question would be this-- How do you get this affect with natural media? Maybe lay down one layer of paint with your paint brush, then scratch it with another device or brush? I think understanding how you accomplish it with natural media might help us better understand how to do so with Artrage.

    Try laying down a heavy layer of paint with either the brush tool or the roller and then experiment with the knife tool. You might find the roller is the best for reacting with the knife. Also, sometimes you may find you get better effects if you have the grain and roughness at zero percent on your canvas when using the knife tool. I have gotten some interesting results when experimenting with the knife.

    Holy crud!! There's a face there! LOL. I didn't see that until I saw him paint it.

    Anyways, you're most interested in the sweeping strokes across it, as well as the "grungy" edge areas, right? Will explore....

    Re: the face-- I think the face should get done on a separate "line work" layer and integrated that way. I just think it'd work better.

    Are you more interested in the final results he attains, or that specific effect? Using a combination of the Oil Brush and the Crayon has pretty much always been my top choices for tools, when drawing/painting anything close to his style. I've attached some examples I've made to the bottom of my post, using techniques I've posted through the following threads:


    1. James Jean Style
    2. Oil Brush Tips
    3. Painting Chrome Using the Crayon
    4. Copic Style Coloring
    5. Charcoal Style
    6. Painting Glass (oil brush only, I believe), with .ARSCRIPT playback download
    7. Crayon on heavy textured canvas



    Made these specifically for testing the tool for his style:

    This one was made previously using the crayon and oil brush, just doing my own thing:

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.
