An update, yipyip.
Got inspired by a piece in a Painter discussion thread over at conceptart.org by Simon Dominic Brewer (http://www.painterly.co.uk) he's a really epic Painter artist, and decided to give art rage a spin, and pulled it off, so I booted up the dusty old art rage and painted this, no ref, about 15 minutes, just throwing strokes around, tried to be as abstract as possible :)
Have a good day :)
www.artrage.com, if anyones interested, its 30 bucks, for a real quality painting tool, the community at the website is great, and there are some really great tutorials and resources there, so go check it out!!
