Silence by angrymikko Silence by angrymikko
Time for a new painting. I'm currently in love with cyan and it shows. :blush:

Painted partly with Artrage 2 that I'm only now beginning to understand. The program is very unforgiving to small mistakes and I've learned to appreciate it because of it.

By the way this is not a sketch or a speedpainting. I spent a lot of time planning the rhythm and texture of brush strokes. half of the time I was painting over the details with bigger brushes because they were unnecessary. I like details I'm just very picky where they are and in this style I have to count in the fact that the eye reads some contrasty brush strokes as details too.

I have to confess that I used to think that Art Rage is just a stupid toy that can't be used for anything. Just goes to show that I was wrong again.

The girl has very much likeness to my sister but I wasn't too concerned with the likeness as I see this as a more story driven painting than as a portrait.

I'm going to post a detail shot of the lower half so you can see my digital mess. =D

(ok I know some people couldn't care less but this kind of stuff is usually seen in big quality prints. I'm sorry for being overly excited about weird stuff1)

my goodness. You really seem to love scenery. It shows, and I really do enjoy the details, and I'm a little bit envious seeing as scenery just doesn't seem to work no matter how hard I try. Plus I don't have any means to digitally color my drawings so the coloring goes to my prima colored pencils.

Wow, amazing lighting! :)

I could never get my head around Artrage, but things like the detail on the tiles and mountains shows that you really have. Awesomeness.

I agree that ArtRage is a program in small errors ruthless and probably requires more work on details that other programs in painting, but it is one, if not the most fun to paint, light and handy that I have ever tasted.

The paint is very good, has some nice tones and good composition. on your line .)

Greetings.

I forgot to mention that the full version of AR2 costs almost nothing especially considering the full versions capabilities. The palette knife is my favourite so far because it gives such wonderful textures. Thanks for the comment.
