    Spring Robin WIP

    Spring robin. ArtRage 6. work in progress. It's been a while. I've been away for some time due to layoff and having to move and resettle and getting into a new graphics career. I've mostly been concentrating on traditional oil paintings and drawings, but I've missed using my favorite digital painting software, ArtRage. I just upgraded to ArtRage 6 and I'm really loving what I'm seeing. I've already transferred all my old art supplies that I've collected and installed them.

    Here, I'm working on a digital painting of a robin that we see each Spring in a small tree just outside my window. I'm very happy to get back into ArtRage.

    Enjoy!

    Good to see you back with us Dale
    That’s got a really nice “real paint” feel to it.
    A change in subject from your aircraft, but still flying related I suppose!

    Thank you! Actually, yes, I've shifted subjects for a bit of time, just so that I don't get stuck into a rut. In reality, in my professional work now, I am a research artist and deal with planes all the time, even creating 3D model mockups and concept art and video production (I wear many artistic hats).

    When I get home, often, I just like to look away from the aviation, often to other subjects such as flora and fauna, landscapes and seascapes. Recently, I just finished a traditional oil painting of my cat!! LOL! I know it's not digital, it's oil on canvas, but my point is, that I love the look of traditional mediums and I try to replicate that when I go digital.

    Even unfinished the bird is beautiful! Of course I just love the cat - lovely rich colours.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.
