Frosty Reception by Nickillus Frosty Reception by Nickillus
An image painted recently in ArtRage to support a magazine editorial piece. Not as finished as I'd like because of time restraints.

Very very nice. Which tools in AR have you used for this?

Thanks Merlkir.
Tools? There is a lot of blocking in using the chalk and crayon tool. Line work fluctuates between pencil and inkline tool. Then there's a fair amount of shadow and colour variation laid down on layers of watercolour.
The textural elements (particularly on the frozen water) were either just painted or introduced using a stencil made from a picture of a stoney surface, transformed to be much wider than it was tall.

Ahha, I was mostly wondering about the ice texture. Thanks for the explanation! :)

Thanks Majeed-Q8.
A lot of the natural look has to do with ArtRage software - that and me being an old fuddy-duddy.

Nicely done, Nick. (It sounds better than the punnier, "Totally cool" line I came close to using.) I especially like the way you handled the frozen water.
