    Portrait of man in profile

    I've been lurking around this forum for a while. I recently bought the full version of ArtRage and a few days ago I loaded the update v.2.11.

    Attached is a portrait I drew of from a photo I shot. The ability to trace and pin up a reference photo is helping me improve my drawing skills rapidly, to the extent that I use the tracing image less and less with each new painting.

    I haven't worked on my drawing or painting skills much since I was in art school. I've used Painter V in the past (I have it loaded on a computer I don't fire up much) and more recently I played around with Painter IX. More comments on these apps another day. For now, I'm appreciating the fun and simplicity of ArtRage.

    I am a professional artist and I make computer graphics for video and video compositing, which is mostly technical work. I like to dabble with digital collage and digital paint every now and then.

    Hi Neda,

    AbsolutelyBrilliant!

    I have been playing around with a picture like that for months.

    I will have a close look at what you've done, and learn from it.

    Welcome to the forums, neda!
    That's an excellent profile. The blending, shading and skin tones are fantastic and you've given the skin a real 'rugged' look.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Wonderful! Thanks for sharing this one and another example of what I would like to aspire to. If I could achieve even half the quality of color, tone, texture, I'd be mighty pleased with myself.
