    The Cyclopean Squid.

    First, I'm a new user both to the forum and ArtRage... I love this little program; It bestows upon you a degree of freedom that more expensive programs take away just by being so complex... my wife had to "accidentally" kick the power cable off the plug yesterday to pry me away from the computer.

    Here is my first humble contribution to the Gallery, I like squids a lot... A LOT... it borders on unhealthy obsession sometimes. :



    I'm still blindly probing my way around the program... how comes we don't have a selection tool?

    I know the type of ship may be slightly out of place for such a tropical setting, but I hadn't had the chance to paint a longship before, and if I had done a galleon or something like that instead, it would have ended looking too much like THAT movie...

    Anyway, it's nice to see so many talented people here...

    Thanks for looking and have a nice day!

    Hi Loki,

    Welcome to the forum. That's an interesting giant squid and the color is sharp too. I like it. You did a very nice first one. I am also new to AR. Hope to see more of your work.

    Haha. . . Now there's something that Leif and the Argonauts forgot to mention in their adventures. Look for the heel. . . oh, they don't have heels. . .

    Well, Lief, old bean, who ya gonna call?

    Very fun image, with a perfect technique. Very clear, which makes the story you're depicting very accessible.

    Kids would love it. Bright and colorful.

    Nice one.

    Thank you all for your kind comments... Usually I'm kind of shunned because of both my style and selection of subjects... In general people prefer more realistic styles and traditional subjects like flowers, horses and ceramic pots... but I chose to walk a different path.

    Artrage is such a fun program!
