Hello, I have been using ArtRage since the beginning of January. I've actually had it on my computer for a long time, but hadn't given it a serious look until I saw the art of Waheed Nasir.
Previously, I used Painter IX.5 and Photoshop CS2. I am hooked on ArtRage. I is a program made for me. My art is changing as a result of it. It is a perfect fit and has freed up my creativity.
Another artist said that ArtRage is bringing out the best in me, because I'm not focused on the program, therefore I am free to use my time for greater creative exploration. I agree.
I have been doing digital art since the beginning of 2005, Many decades ago I did a little painting but gave it up because I could never see an end to an image. Plus, I ended up with so many layers that the paint cracked. :lol:
I've learned so much in the last two years, and am hoping to use ArtRage as a transition tool back to traditional painting. I also plan to continue using ArtRage to work out my ideas before painting on canvas. I have a way to go yet.
I want to say a personal thank you for creating this wonderful program.
I am going to submit some of my work to the Gallery so you can see the beginning of my ArtRage work, and in time I hope you will see growth.
