    These paintings are brilliant and each scene is naturally layed out and tells a story and asks questions to the viewer, keep on

    Thumbs up

    Nick, this is superb - you are such a great ambassador for Artrage and digital art.

    Fantastic one as always Nick!

    I love the moody lighting and how my mind is drawn in to start to tell the story of this meeting

    It's been a while . . . . . but IFX magazine is 100, WOOHOOOOOOOO !!!

    Sorry to have ben so quiet, chaps. Lots of juggling and family stuff going on. Life basically, like we all have to deal with.

    I'm always switching between AR and SKB for my drawing and painting, because for me they are both great software with different things to offer. Of necessity I've been using SKB for a book project that has been taking a lot of time, because it happened to suit the requirements better. That work isn't suitable fare for this Ambient forum then, but recently I've been getting a few more ImagineFX magazine projects to do again and those ArtRage is better suited for those.

    I'm very lucky that the team there seem to like me and offer me Q&A entries to do a few times a year. Below is a sheet showing some progress stages that won't appear with the article. I won't explain what the question is about, in the hope that you will support the excellent magazine by purchasing the physical or digital edition when it comes out in the next month or so. All I will say is that the hairy thing is supposed to be a bear.

    Something I'm even more excited about is that they very kindly asked me to come up with a splash image, heading up an article for their 100th issue celebratory edition. Feel realy honoured. It was fairly short notice a few weeks ago and a tight deadline, so I couldn't ponder and deliberate much. My subscription copy dropped on the doormat yesterday, so it will hit news stands in a couple of days.

    Did it all in ArtRage 4, but was worried that the file size might become a problem as the number of layers swelled. Thinking ahead I switched to Painter 12, the big and much vaunted Corel monster, to avoid that and guess what? It crashed losing precious work. Then it crashed again. I reverted to AR and had no problems whatsoever. Brilliant.
    Below are some stages that again wil not appear anywhere in the magazine.

    Thanks Copespeak. Best bit about it was that it was fun to do despite the pressure. And ArtRage performed great. Such a super bit of kit.
