    First look at ArtRage 3

    Looks like they gave in and added more digital standard tools. The watercolor looks nifty.

    on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
    four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace

    Artrage has great tools, but I always find it incredibly difficult to get good results out of them. I just can't seem to wrap my head around it, it doesn't really feel like it's emulating real paint to me (which I think is a lot easier to work with).

    I can drool over the stuff Feerik does with artrage, but it completely eludes me how he does it.

    In the end it's only a simulation, that means: learn and adapt.

    Look at Borilius Gallery, he has made some wonderful pieces with Artrage 2

    Yeah likewise, AR2.5 is hard preset based, you can't make new brushes and you can't save new presets for the the available brushes, imagine painting an whole painting with just a single bristle brush, sure you can resize but it's so troublesome and unintuitive. Anyway glad they changed their approach, the more tools the better.

    ArtRage 3 looks like on a basic level what Painter Sketchpad should have been, but I have no doubts Artrage may be much more.

    However, it if meets the standards of what Sketchpad should have been and the fact AR is going to be under 100 dollars...they made even better progress than what I'm seeing of other companies of late.

    Question

    Maybe I've used Painter and Photoshop too long... Seems like Painter is rocking its boat, so I have some curiosity about Art Rage 3..
    (Or will I have to be shot if you tell me? )
    • Wand selection tool?
    • Rubber-band type of selection tool?
    • Layer transparency?
    • Lock/unlock layers?
    • Duplicate layers?
    • Create mask?
    • Scaleable image?
    • Can specific output size/dpi/picas/inches be set?
    • File formats (jpg/tif/png)?
    • Color modes (rgb/cmyk/web-safe)?
    • A maximum image size?

    I do a lot of print illustration ... kinda shopping around now, no definite decision/direction. I just don't want to believe that Painter/Photoshop are the only games in town for digital painting

    Thanks.

    I primarily use AR now, with some Painter, after years of using Painter only. The AR3 brush engine is way ahead of Painter's and is easily the best on the market. The big difference between AR and all the other apps is that it handles the canvas and paint information differently, holding not just colour but depth, wetness and texture information.

    And to answer the question above - most of them apart from proper colour management.

    any chance you'll do a tutorial on how you achieve your results after AR3 is released Baron Impossible?

    I have 2.5 and I've found it to be pretty unwieldy and frustrating at times, most likely because I'm just so used to the traditional ways of digital painting.

    Love the look of your artrage work, and hope you give us an idea of your workflow.

    I suspect his workflow is just "Being Good at Painting" and he'd be just as good with NeoPaint or something else equally shit ten years ago on the Atari ST .

    NeoPaint, yeah, all I can remember doing with my ST is playing Pinball and Gauntlet.

    B-nine, it's just a matter of practice with the tools really, you get used to them after a while. I paint digitally much the same as traditional painters paint, er, traditionally. Sketch it out, either pencil shade or underpaint for values, then paint over the top. I got a couple of AR2.5 tutorials out there in mags but again, though, nothing revelatory in terms of clever functionality, just the standard pencil and oil tools.
