Dragon Caricature with ArtRage 4 is another recent piece I have made using ArtRage 4. This is derived from my early drawings of dragons years ago when I was still in college. I remember doodling these dragons on pages of my notebooks, journals and even test papers. These were the days I was hoping I could come up with my version of a Snoopy trademark. These could have been on comics, animation, t-shirts and what-have-you! The only thing was that I never named them. Maybe, I should start rethinking this idea!
Anyway, I tried this dragon caricature on ArtRage using watercolor technique and I think it is still awesome. Art Rage does have a nice simulation of watercolor, down to the page surface! Anyone who says otherwise?
What is ArtRage 4?
ArtRage is a digital painting app that mimics real-life art techniques. It gives you “real life painting tools on your computer in a stylish, easy to use environment that lets you get down to the process of creating without digital distractions” as the app description says on the artrage website. It’s like a mini artsy Photoshop at a fraction of the cost.
The full software sells for $49 while the mobile apps range from $1.99 to $4.99. My laptop came pre-installed with ArtRage 3 and it offered to an upgrade to ArtRage 4 for 50% off the full software price so it was not a bad deal at all. If your computer came pre-installed with an earlier version, I highly recommend upgrading to the latest update because the updates alone are worth it.
Everybody who is interested in visual art, whether simply sketching, doodling stick figures or making a full digital Picasso, should try ArtRage! Whether just a dragon caricature or a Monalisa, who knows what kind of major masterpiece you can come up with in the near future!
