ArtRage, A Terrific Painting Program

I was randomly browsing when I suddenly found this fantastic piece of digital art on the net. It led me to a digital painting program from Ambient Design Ltd. called ArtRage. It can simulate realistic brushstokes on canvas or paper, as if you were really working with oil or acrylics. And it even gives you tiny congealed globs of paint if you move the brush in a certain angle. The colours will mix realistically when different paints overlap.

Today, I tried my hand at it, using my trusty mouse in lieu of a graphics tablet, and here are the first two attempts at freehand painting, with no visual references. I'm really having fun with this and will have to practise more to refine my technique which currently sucks... the best I can with a mouse.

Those are great. I particularly like the landscape. It’s got a wonderful surreal quality.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

You should definately invest in a graphics tablet Hish. Check out the Painter too. The airbrush in that programme is pretty realistic and produces great results when used with a stylus.

ArtRage certainly looks promising though. Pretty impressive use of the mouse there too Hish :)
