ArtRage BeginnersGuide + mouse

:bulletpurple: Beginners guide to ArtRage 2 :bulletpurple:

CC Attribution: Noncommercial, No Derivative Works 3.0 License

A guide for beginners who have never worked with any painting software before or are new to ArtRage, also for people who would like to try drawing with a mouse.

Note on image size vs printing - please read discussion on it at the official ArtRage forums, as I have never tried printing directly from ArtRage myself:
- What is the best DPI to save paintings in Artrage for printing off to sell? [link]
- DPI and commecial inkjet printing of ArtRage paintings [link]
- Question regarding DPI, images, etc... [link]

While drawing with a mouse:
:bulletpurple: use zoom in for details, some elements are easier to paint in closer/bigger view, some when image is zoomed out; useful while drawing with a tablet, too
:bulletpurple: adjust pressure a lot to get more transparency (opacity in other programs)
:bulletpurple: change brush size depending on how big elements you draw
:bulletpurple: experiment with brushes, that's fun :D

Done for folks from Hobbiton forums who paint with a mouse.
