Two Face Dancing Guy

Painting fun in ArtRage and a little in Sketchbook Pro. I took a doodle I had made on storyboard paper, scanned it, made the white paper background disappear in Photoshop. Then imported to ArtRage for all the painting. Then colored the lines in Sketchbook Pro.

I was trying out all the tools and settings to get that scrumbly Golden Books kind of texture to my paint. Fun!

When I do work for the studios, it usually has to be clean and slick, so when I paint for myself, I'm not at ALL converned about "painting inside the lines." It feels quite liberating after so many years of being hung up on making things look "just right." :)

Heheh, really interesting, non the less! :D I like how one of the faces is happy and the other is not really, maybe not :D
Keep up good work! ;)

This definitely does have a Golden Book-esque look to it. Nice, and retro looking. :) I've been wondering how Golden Books made their cover arts look like that haha

Oh that's a cool design, I do agree with you. It's nice to have freedom in your own art at times. :)

Hello Sherm!!! I have a doubt! I recently got artrage too and saw it is fantastic to emulate "real painting" I was wondering, could it be used as professional software for illustrating, since PS doesn't do many effects like it? I immediately reminded of this picture once I tried it! All the best!

This is just awesome! :D

I see what you mean, it does
feel great to just go out of
the lines and go with the flow
after you've gone a while made
having to stay clean and perfect.

Great job on this little sketch! :heart:
