Little Briar Rose by jasonjuta Little Briar Rose by jasonjuta
I've finally finished my late ArtOrder challenge entry, an illustration of the prince entering the thorns that surround the princess' castle, which part and turn to blossoms as the curse fades away. Photoshop, ArtRage.

gorgeous with its vivid red in contrast - the combination of red, white and a darker shade is always a stirling mix! you mentioned you used Artrage - i have heard of this but havent used it myself - how did you use it in this work, if i may ask?

Thank you. It's a natural media software, and very, very cheap and simple to use. I occasionally use it to paint directly, but not often. At the moment I lay down a strong underpainting in Photoshop, then I use a trick in ArtRage where you take advantage of their tracing paper system to blend the colours already laid down. It's not tracing, it just uses their tracing overlay system. You could view it as laying down an underpainting in photoshop, then blending the colours on the canvas in ArtRage. Effectively it allows you to paint normally, but only with the colours that are already on the canvas. After that it's back into photoshop for detailing.

The reds are very striking in this piece, with the rest of the color palette being so muted. Quite an eye-grabber!
