Hot Rod – W.I.P.

Well, I’ve just recently upgraded to ArtRage 3…after an initial ranting, raving & complaining about what’s wrong in Artrage, I’ve found what’s good about ArtRage 3.0 and there’s plenty of good in ArtRage. I love the ink pen and pencil tools, especially the smoothing pencil & smooth ink pen. As well as the stencils ( circle, french curves) and ruler… Drawing a car has never been easier….I’m still not comfortable with the painting tools so I brought the base sketch into Corel Paint Shop Pro X2 where the car was painted… Looking forward to more “playing around in ArtRage 3.0″….

Initial sketches for this image…

I created the seperate parts for the dragon in individual images. They were then brought into PSP as separate layers where I put the parts together
to composite the dragon…

Head sketch – I usually draw one side of the head then using PSP’s mirror tool I create thr opposite side…

The Naughty Elf

A rough “pencil” sketch I created in Art Rage 2.5 was imported into Corel Painter IX.5, blocked in and refined…

I’m starting to love the “sketching pencil” in Art rage 2.5… I find it easier recreates the real world pencil experience….
