A personal piece and my first work out in Art Rage. Polished it up in Painter and Photoshop, but very much enjoyed Art Rage for underpainting, and touching in some nice impasto here and there.

Wow, very well done...I especially love the way you made the architecture in the first plane, you put in so many realistic details and textures, combined with the dark window. It really draws me inside the painting. Wonderful athmosphere!

Great stuff, although the middle horse's head seems awfully tiny

yet another spectacular work on your behalf! Once again I marvell at the scenery at the beauty and both the grit in the townspeople looks cautiously to the newcomers of the town in awe and fear. Great work! an awesome scene that should be included in every adventure story!

Art Rage? Wow. I never really thought of trying that, but it came out great here. I might reconsider, seeing how you are one of my favorite digital artists. You always keep it so painterly.

I'm really loving ArtRage right now. This one looks a little dated to my eyes looking at it now, but I'll maybe drop you an email with some newer AR work, which I can't yet display to the public, so you can see what I've been doing with it. It takes a bit of practice to get it under enough control, but I think its well worth the $20. It would be worth ten times that I think.

I should get a royalty from the ArtRage people because I sell it to that many people. ;)

You know, their demo doesn't do much to sell the program to serious artists. They lock down so many features that I couldn't tell what all it could do the last time I played with it. Seeing your work and another concept artist that also uses it to great effect has changed my mind. Think I'm going to pick it up.
