This program has been available for several years and has matured into a very powerful and unique program suitable for either fine art or industry-level production art. By the end of this ArtRage training, you'll have a firm foundation in the basic tools and skills you need to create your own digital masterpieces. Software required: ArtRage 4.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi, my name is Victor Osaka. I'm an artist, designer and educator. In this beginner's course, I'm going to introduce you to ArtRage 4. 5. 3 by a New Zealand company called Ambient Designs. ArtRage is an incredible 32 and 64 bit, natural-media painting program. By that, I mean it's forte is replicating a wide variety of traditional art medium, such as watercolor, oil paints, gouache, airbrush, pastels, and much more. The key takeaways from this course will include an overview of the interface and tools, becoming familiar with the many brushes and adjustment panels, learns the ins and outs of canvas-sizing and textures, using the Reference Image and Tracing Image functions, and finally, learn the ArtRage method, as I recreate a famous painting style from start to finish. By the end of the training, you'll have become familiar enough with ArtRage to begin your own master creations. I'm excited to work with Digital Tutors and to share this course with you. So, let's get started with the first lesson.
