    Thank you Robyn, there are lots of features in the PC version that aren't available on the iPad so there is lots of adapting to do. You can't have a different canvas for each layer as in the pc version, or feather the tools you only have pressure and opacity to play with. If there was some sort of splatter tool then I would have a bit more control.
    I do keep each sections on different layers but if I have to many layers the program can crash. I have a seperate layer for the faces so can play with that layer only, the best I can come up with is using the oil brush then the palette knife on a wet frosted effect. I will keep trying as I also think the faces need a more leathery texture.

    I'm wondering whether you can keep your rough canvas all the way through and then use your fine ink pen for the hairs? Alternately, can you change your canvas settings backwards and forwards? Or, if that can't be done, can you do the face but not your hairs, export the finshed face and import it back in to work on?

    Not knowing iPads, I'm not sure what's possible.

    I have enclosed some close-up sections of a possum I did recently. They have a rich, dense coat, so leave a bit of leeway on how you build the hairs. But, remember, unless you are printing very large, a finished print will not show every tiny detail.

    Robyn the painting looks brilliant they have lots of depth to them, it's figuring how to achieve that on the iPad while still using the ink pen. I think you may have come up with a great idea though and that is to do the parts that need rough, save and then import onto a layer.
    The iPad version of Artrage does a fantastic job in mimicking all the tools of the pc version considering the lack of memory, I love being able to just sit back in an armchair painting rather then sitting at the main PC. I have taken two screen shots one with the canvas on which give the face a more rugged look but loses the fur and one with the canvas off.

    I think you are so clever to do what you do on your iPad. I had an Android tablet for a short time, but sold it when I couldn't get Art Rage on it and migrated to a 12.1 tablet PC. I know how difficult it is to use those stylus and your fingers. There's always a bit of a lag, and I get that with mine. All those fine hairs you do!

    I like the canvas on for his skin. Can you combine the two by exporting the face and importing it back in and combining it with the hair with canvas off? And, keep the eyes smooth?

    Just another nutty idea!

    I'll watch with interest for your next installment. :0)

    This one is done with the face added from a screen capture of the layer with rough canvas, i then erased all the unecessary areas. Tell me if you think t better.

    Thank you Geoff, there is a lot of strokes, lol! I have had to remove my screen protector it was so scratched everything was looking very frosty, I will put a new one on as soon as it comes. The adonit head is plastic so there is a bit of friction with the screen protecter on, plastic on plastic. I know it wont scratch the main screen because that is glass but don't feel secure using it naked.
    Robyn came up with a great idea in saving a jpg of just the faces with the rough canvas, it works a treat hopefully i don't need to edit them again because i would lose the rough look in the skin if I do.
