    Post Still unfamiliar

    Hi everybody, I just startet in ArtRage Community. Two weeks ago I bought ArtRageVitae after an odyssee trying several painter programs until I discovered ArtRage. I installed it on a Surface Book 3. And hope I will get sufficient results. I am still struggling and learning to figure out the possibilities an how to manage it. It is a knew kind of art for me
    Mutual I decided to join the community. But it all now is unfamiliar to me here into the forum.
    The forum seems to me more difficult than the ArtRageVitae ;-) It is so different form my only community I am joining. It doesn't matter. However I am excited what will happen.

    Hello LaFemmeDuLac, und willkommen, to the ArtRage forums
    Yes, I know what you meen, starting any new software can be a bit daunting! And doubly so if English is not your first language I imagin!
    But Iíll let you into a secret, there was a time when the rest of us here didnít know anything about using ArtRage too, but we learned!
    So donít worry, just ask any questions you may have about ArtRage, or using the forums, and someone around here will gladly help you if they can.
    Looking forward to seeing what you might create with ArtRage

    Red face You got it

    Thank you for encouraging me. Sure, I am not an English native speaker. But that is not at all my problem. If necessarily:
    I placed next to my Surface my smart on which I have bought apps for the English-Oxford-Dictionaries and for every language I know more or less. But I prefer to write fast and spontaneous.
    And yes, ist is not so easy to learn this new kind of art. I am just struggling with my first paint. Often I feel the temptation to take my brushes, paper and colors to finish the chosen and planned subject. Why did I also have to choose ArtRage Vitae and why did I buy it from Microsoft-store? Because my Surface Book 3's touchscreen can be used by every simple touch-screen pen or fingers, mouse, just like using several brushes.
    I can remove and turn the screen an place it in a convenient position for painting, the processor is behind the screen. It is like a pad or tablet, but the operating system is Windows 11.
    I tried even Coral Painter and nothing worked with it except the mouse. Not even with the very expensive slim pen 2 from Microsoft was anything moving on the surface of Coral Painter. But with the mouse it was edgy and unsatisfying. Out of that Coral Painter was to difficult for me, the possibilities are to numerous. I gave it back.
    Or I would have to buy another Surface or the special devices for Coral painter.
    It would have been to expensive for my opinion and my level. Out of the huge struggles with Coral painter.
    If difficulties with ArtRage Vitea in referring to Windows are appearing: I am registered and can get every support I need here at home.
    And I promised to myself: Be patiently you have any time! And I will try step by step to get involved into the forum.
    Until know I do not join any platform, social media etc, nor whatsapp.
    I am solely joining "Parfumo.de/Parfumo.net"(English). Parfums are wonderful, but after ten years I have learned almost everything about it have a lot of flasks, it is time to try something new.

    I'm a long time Corel Painter user and while I love that software, it is not good on recent Surface PCs (past Surface Book 2). I can only use it with my custom-built PC. I'm using a Surface Pro 8 with ArtRage Vitae and so far it seems to be very good.

    Hello spitfireix, so far was this my experience too with my Surface Book 3. And I admire you! Because you are capable to work with Coral Painter. Maybe it was an advantage it did not work with normal capacitive Pens, also not with Slim Pen 2 from Microsoft. Because Coral Painter would have demanded me too much in terms of my abilities and intensions. That means it is too expensive for my purpose.
    I love my Surface Book 3, have a 15 inch screen. And ArtRage has enough for me to find out: "Will I be able and like to create digital Art?" In every case I want to learn it. Because it is a new kind of art and as difficult to receive and create decent art-work as every kind of analog-painting I do since I am a primary-school girl. Out of that I can try crayon-art. I hate the haptic of crayons on my fingers doing analog. Summited: ArtRage is the fitting art-program for me.
    But now I will start to try my first work...Have a nice time. Success for your creations. And please, where can I have a look on your work? Greetings
