    Red face Hello 😀

    Just saying hello,. I'm not sure how many people still use forums, but being sometimes a solitary artist I thought I'd make an effort to mingle. I tried to attach an example of something I did last year when I first bought Artrage. It's a lot of fun. I have so much to explore and learn, I love the journey ��Click image for larger version.

    Well, hello to you too MaryA and welcome to the ArtRage forums
    Yes, I know what you mean about forums! Since the rise of social media, participation from users in ArtRage’s forums has waned somewhat of late sadly
    But still, that’s a great first post from you, very striking!
    So, do you also use ArtRage or even traditional media to make preliminary design drawings for your body/face paintings? Or do you just dive strait in with those?

    Thank you for your message Mark and much appreciated comment on this. I usually just dive in yes, although I recently reworked an old pastel which I polished up and changed colours. It probably took longer than if could have since I'm still experimenting with all the tools, but I do prefer to just dive in, as it's much more fun. I've still got a lot utube videos to watch ���� I like the idea of the forum as sometimes engagement with Facebook is a job in itself. Have you been engaging with the forum for a long time? Oh and I just re-read your reply about my face and Body Art designs, I've always just created as I go with those, the I think I might have tried to plan designs before on a 2D surface in the past but the face paint medium has a mind of its own when presented with a human canvas. I do have hundreds of face and Body Art photos though which would be a great resource for digital transformation.

    I found these forums in 2011. I had ArtRage for a year or so before that, version 2 or 2.5 I think it was back then.
    Mostly here I hang around the Technical sections of the forums and try and help when people encounter issues with AR or just have questions about using the software.
    But I have also posted some of my animal paintings here in the Gallery area too.

    Thanks for hanging about the tech forums, it's great to know you're there to help. Let me know how I can find your uploaded art, I'm not used to using forums.

    Thank you for being curious about my animal paintings
    If you have not already found them they can all be found in this thread here: https://forums.artrage.com/showthrea...172#post534172
    Though not typical of things I generally paint, I also posted a nude study in the After 9 O’clock area of these forums a year or so back: https://forums.artrage.com/showthrea...393#post536393

    Thanks Mark, both images are really lovely. I see you have posted lots of great tips on how to use Artrage throughout the forum, they will be a great help to me as I explore using Artrage, I didn't know whether to buy Vitae or not, but didn't want to miss out on the sale offer, I know I would regret it if I hadn't bought it. I've never used any other digital art programme at least not for about 20 yrs, the drawing tablets and pens were just coming onto the market and I didn't get the chance to explore it back then. It is amazing technology, the possibilities are endless
