Vidcap on Youtube
ImagineFX have stomped ahead and the vidcp for that SKetchbook Pro workshop is already loaded on their Youtube channel.  I've included a link to it in this journal entry, and have stored a more permanent link in my vidcap link box on my profile page.  The box has also been updated with the Fancy a Dunk vidcap link and another to one about creating a swirling effect in ArtRage done at the same time.  More to follow soon for those among you who have trouble getting to sleep . . . . . 'The Thrusters Should Be Pointing Down' A Sketchbook Pro 6 workshop done for ImagineFX 'Fancy a Dunk?' An ArtRage painting done in support of an entry in the Q
Fancy a Dunk Vidcap?
April issue of ImagineFx magazine saw another me lucky enough to have another two entires in the Q&A section on show.  I had time to cobble a vidcap together for each of these - and I use the word cobble advisedly.  I'm not your slick movie maker and you need to be prepared for a god deal of extraneous waffle, which reflects the way I tend to work anyhow.  May issue is already out on the shelves and one of the vidcaps has been released (or maybe it just escaped . . . ?) onto the the IFX Youtube channel.  It relates to the image shown here and is using ArtRage 3.55, in case any of you are interested or have a thing for waffle.

Sketchbook Pro 6 Workshop in Issue 93 of ImagineFX
Lucky enough to have been asked to supply another little workshop for my favourite magazine around Christmas.  It's in issue 93 which hit the shelves February 1st in the UK, but should be available elsewhere in download format if you inhabit more interesting places and fancy a look.  It's just me playing about to create an image in SKetchbook Pro which stands as my equal favourite software with ArtRage.  They each have different things to offer and are both great. Sketchbook Pro really is worth a look if you haven't taken advantage of the free trial already.  Don't take my word - track down the Bobby Chiu vidcap where he shows how he created

You work is just overflowing with charm, and telling so many stories. You should totally do a visual novel app or art for a game!

Just watched the Imagine FX Artrage watercolor tutorial, really good tips there on workflow issues I've beeng struggling with lately, even for people using other software to paint like Photoshop. Thank you very much :)

Thanks for taking the time to let me know Hakepe.  Glad if it helped.  Love ArtRage software. 

Not for the watercolour so much as I'm using the the oil brush more, but there should be another couple of vidcaps for the Q&A section of the IFX mag coming in the month or so (issue 109 according to the commission).  Pretty waffley and not so instructional - talking more about the topic of the specific questions. Not allowed to say more at this stage until they're out unfortunately.

Thank you for the tip and for gathering the tutorial links to your DA site. Very helpfull :) Been trying to develop a solid illustration process from traditional scetching with a pencil to digital oil/watercolor. Still a work in progress but slowly moving forward.
