What kind of artist are you? What kind of subjects do you draw?

Geleneksel sanattan aldığı ilhamı dijital ile birleştirerek çalışmalarına devam etmektedir. Genellikle seçtiğim figürler insan tasvirleri veya canlılar oluyor.

I combine digital art with traditional techniques. I usually do portraits for posters and editorial works. When I do special work, it is usually animal themed.

What artwork are you particularly proud of creating in ArtRage?

‘Mustapha Pasha’, painted with the palette knife and oil brush. This portrait was inspired by a historical figure.

Right: Mustapha Pasha

Why do you use ArtRage? What do you like about the program?

Artrage programının en sevdiğim yönü çalışırken sanki gerçek fırçalar ile çalışıyormuşsunuz gibi eserlerinizi oluşturuyor olmanız. Birçok yazılım denedikten sonra artrage’in bu iş için en uygun yazılım olduğu kanaatine vardım. Dijital boyama yaparken gerçekçi fırçalar ve dokular arayanların denemesi gereken bir uygulama.

ArtRage makes me feel free when painting and my works become more realistic. It allows me to work traditionally, and the quality of my work is increased thanks to the software. My favorite tools are the palette knife and oil paint brushes, they are very realistic, but I find all the tools useful.

My favourite aspect of ArtRage is that, when you work with the program, you are creating your pieces as if you were working with a real brush. After testing a lot of software, I was convinced that ArtRage was the best software for this job. I recommend this application to artists seeking to paint with realistic brushes and textures.
