Haven't had hardly any time for personal work but I really wanted to finally give the new version of Art Rage a whirl. It's been out for awhile ,but I hadn't gotten around to the upgrade.

This image isn't entirely ArtRage- but a good deal of it was.  I jumped from ArtRage, to Corel Painter, and Photoshop just to see how they all interacted together. It's tough to determine how long this image took  - since I only dabbled a little here and there on work-breaks.

It doesn't  replace the big programs, but the price is good and I really love the oil brushes in the program. Definitely recommend to those oil painters who  miss a bit of that feeling when working digitally. I'll try to get a process gif going soon ,but it's pretty busy right now! I'll do my best though. Thanks for looking!-S.

Oooooo look at those marks ;) Really interesting experiment, man! I really dig the tones you managed to get in this piece. Those cool tones in the cheek are delicious.

Thanks for providing the close up - I can't believe its a digital image. Looks like you've mastered the new program already.
