    This is not a major update, but a good one I think. I can draw and paint most things with ArtRage. Don’t think I can say that about many other programs.

    This is part 4. Part 1, part 2, part 3.

  • Boy Room – Line Art and adding in details
  • Posted on December 18, 2012
  • Here I have added in new things and more detail using both the 1 point perspective grid and free hand drawing.

    Looks like this is my best perspective drawing yet. Starting with painting seams to be a good idea.

    This is part 3. For part 4 look here. Part 1, part 2.

  • Boy Room – Drawing in perspective over the painting
  • Posted on December 16, 2012
  • In this update I’m drawing over the painting in perspective so I can get it right. When that is done I can add things in to the room and make it all look better before I paint it over again.

    I’m using a perspective grid I made that is converted into a stencil in ArtRage. A stencil is good because it can be placed partly outside the canvas area and it can be hidden when not in use. A stencil can also act as a ruler and you can spin it around, which gives even more possibilities.

    At the beginning of this part I made sure that the lines in the perspective grid stencil was somewhat aligned with the lines of the painting before I painted it on to a new layer. It created a 1 point perspective in blue. Is important to get the right height on the perspective point which gives a horizontal line, so my thought was to see the room through a camera in the approximate height of a person’s eyes. The desk chair is not pointing directly at the desk, so I decided to put up a 2 point perspective outside the canvas surface and paint the lines of the grid in orange were the chair is on yet another layer. I had to change the perspective points a few times to get the lines of the stencil somewhat aligned with the chair before I found the final place of the grid.

    This is part 2. For part 3 look here. Part 1, part 4.

  • Boy Room – A early view of a digital painting project
  • Posted on December 15, 2012
  • I’m thinking about adding in a ghost, monster or possibly living toys. Not sure yet. This is so far painted without perspective points. I have problems drawing rooms and places with and without perspective so this time I’m trying to paint it out instead with the thought of repainting it into perspective with the use of a grid or ruler.

    This is painted in ArtRage Studio Pro which you can get a look at here if you are interested.
