Your work is so inspiring!! Truly amazing. I'll try this ArtRage because of you I didn't know it until now. Let's see what happens... but I'm sure all your technique on traditional media has a big influence on those great digital works. Well, thanks for your art and for bringing out this software for us!
Thank you very much. Yes, I think ArtRage is great, and it's getting better and better. It's worthwhile to follow ArtRage on Facebook, and here on dA (their official page), in case you have problems or just wondering. And of course to join the ArtRage forum on their site. (btw I'm not in any way connected with Ambient design, and I don't profit on promoting ArtRage )
And yes, you are correct, I do paint digitally pretty much the way I paint traditionally.
If you have questions about my methods, I'd be happy to answer. You can also check out my site www.tombjorklund.fi even if it's still in its cradle and things are a bit slow there. I'm trying to start blogging about different painting (or whatever media) techniques too, not least ArtRage related.
for sure. Here where I live owls make perfect security because the locals are scared shitless of them. Lots of myths and local legends about them. We have a few big ass eagle owls that hang around here at night!
