Painting In ArtRage
What is different, and what I really like, is that the brushes look closer to the real thing. There is a slider in the presets that is called thinner. Depending on the amount of thinner you apply the color in the stroke is either opaque or transparent. The more opaque setting looks like a juicy brush stroke, loaded with paint and the transparent setting acts as a glaze allowing some of the color underneath to show through.
When you open up the program it is important to change the image presets for the document. The default has the image at 72 dpi. I would change that to no less than 300 and I would change it before you start painting. The painting above lost all of the juicy brush strokes because I decided to bump up the image after the painting was done. The image bellow it, while I don't think was as successful retained the kind of brush strokes I wish were still present in the first image.
Below is a YouTube demo of the first image.
