    My First Experience With Art Rage Vitae

    This has got to be the most challenging thing ever attempted using Art Rage.

    As I mentioned in the General Chat section of this Forum on someones' thread asking "Where Has Everyone Gone" this is the painting that my first experience with Art Rage Vitae involves.
    I decided from looking in a "History of Art Book" as a challenge to produce a digital painting of a work created by a historic Dutch master "Peter Paul Rubens" entitled "The 'Marrigage of Marie de' Medici to Henri IV of France'.
    This digital image painting will probably take some time to complete yet as a start I am showing a start up. Will update as I progress and welcome suggestions and comments. This is a crude start up and will involve some time to complete or at least a point where I get frustrated and call it quits or cut off point. There is a lot of intricate fine detail in this painting especially the attire (clothing).

    I have seen it mentioned here that someone should start a challenge and this might be an idea for such. A challenge might involve everyone attempting the same painting using a photo reference of some historical well known artist and see how close all that enter the challenge can recreate that natural media painting in an Art Rage digital format. Someone might find an interesting painting on line and place the link in the challenge thread here for everyone to use as a reference. This could lead to some really challenging experience and interesting results.

    Wow, I'm impressed. With that level of detail what resolution is the canvas you are working with?

    19 by 22 inch., started with 76 resolution, have since moved to 300dpi.
    In this progress image one of the editing features of Art Rage (Vitae and 6) came in handy. Needed to resize the hand held cross staff to a larger size, saved a lot of time painting the whole thing over, instead simply used the hard freehand option and increased the size. Did a lot of the same to get all the heads relatively equal and balanced in perspective. Still a long way from completion, lots more work needed.

    Here's an update after some progress made.
    Since last posting of an image ran into an obstacle. The size of the digital painting was accumulating too much memory, reached a level of 294mb at a size of 5700 X 6618, 300 dpi. The reason I stress too much memory is that the program was beginning to run very slowly and occasionally freeze. To alleviate the situation the image was reduced to 2842px X 3300px and 96 dpi, with an end result of a 82mb size file. If I had continued with the original size the problems of slowing and freezing would get worse. The larger size is better for exploding views to high levels for close attention and work on details. Still a long way to go.
