    first work

    Well I got my feet wet with Art Rage just trying to get the hang of it today. I've learned so far that I have alot to learn but it was a neat experience. I would have rather not had the original sketch showing ( crayon ) but I guess next time I'll have to put more effort into avoiding that for the next project.

    Hi Jodi, and welcome to the forum.
    The style is great. I think the sketch lines add character to the drawing. They make it look like a storybook illustration.
    It suits the characters and the setting well.

    Thank you both for your kind replies. Honestly I really don't have a particular style....it's always somethig different depending on mood and mind frame. Wacom pen leads the way and I follow closely behind

    By the way, speaking of Wacom...I'm using a Graphire 3 and I was wondering how much better is the Intuos version ? I find that the pressure sensitivity could be better when it comes to the oil brush.

    OK, I think I'm going to do a couple of tutorials today in hopes of learning some better approaches to using this interesting new program ! The Rage brothers have me intrigued

    Thanks again !

    This is wonderful Jodi. Somewhat Dr. Seuss-ish.

    Thanks Robert ! Well I've always been quite a fan of the Doctor simply because he never gave a rats behind of what other people thought of his creations. He just did his thing and it was just icing on the cake that we all loved to read his books ! Yup, simply amazing....me, no...just tagging along

    Has a bit of a Wind In The Willows meets Miasaki feel in the look of the art. Animated, personality, attitude -- not too heavy.

    Ah, life in suburbia.

    The busy bee sending him off to his humdrum office job -- quick like.

    There's lots to do. . . lots to do. . .

    Thank you both !

    truth is...he's jumping and bug is trying to convince him otherwise. Merely a metaphore that came through on my part... tossing the briefcase may have been more appropriate to suggest putting work to rest but I guess i really do need a vacation more than I thought !

    Killing your protagonist off right off the bat is daring. :lol:
