Untitled painting done with software

Art By Me

I very rarely bother to make visual art, but, today, I made a painting using a demo of the software ArtRage Starter Edition 2.5, which is quite easy to use and fun.

No title. I guess it looks better in the thumbnail than full-size. I didn't put much effort into it, and it was done with a ball mouse, not any kind of fancy computer art equipment. It took less than 15-20 minutes. I didn't start with anything in mind that I was trying to depict, but, I guess it turned out like a landscape with a colorful sky overhead.

I keep my computer monitor tinted with extra red, and didn't bother to untint it while painting, so, apologies if the colors don't look so great on your screen.


My art tends to be pretty primitive, due to impatience, disinterest, laziness, and knowing I have better things to do, as well as things I'm better at doing.

But, maybe someday I'll go to the trouble of getting much better at visual art.


I've rarely tried to create nice visual art since I was a child. Back then, I never had much luck drawing anything at all nice until I read a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.

I highly recommend that book. It made an amazing difference in my ability to draw. (Sorry, I don't have any examples on hand to post.)

Amazon.com link to a newer edition I haven't read: The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence

Probably the edition I used: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain


Will I continue being inspired to update this website? Maybe. I have a lot to take my mind off of.

Capricorn, Apollia,
Sagittarius, Aquarius.

On Dec. 21, 2008 at 7:04 AM EST, sun in Sagittarius, the sign of the centaur archer, ended, and sun in Capricorn, the sign of the sea-goat, began.

So, here are a couple more screenshots I took last March in Second Life of various zodiac sculptures at a lovely exhibit of prim sculpture art by Madcow Cosmos.

By the way, here's a Capricorn compatibility tip. If you want to get along with a Capricorn, don't stand on their head. They hate that, as you can see from the picture at right.

You can visit the shop of the artist, Madcow Cosmos, at the Lie sim.

As of October 22, 2008, 9:09 PM EDT, the sun has begun its transit of Scorpio. So, here's another screenshot I took last March in Second Life at a fantastic exhibit of prim sculptures by Madcow Cosmos.

This is a prim sculpture of Scorpio, the sign of the scorpion (with part of Taurus, the bull, visible to the left of it).

Today, the transit of the sun through the sign of Libra ends, and sun in Scorpio will soon commence - at 9:09 PM EDT, to be exact. (I found this out by using the free astrology software Astrolog 5.40).

So, here are some screenshots I took last March in Second Life of a prim sculpture of Libra, the sign of the scales, at a wonderful exhibit of prim sculpture art by Madcow Cosmos.

There were many other sculptures at the exhibit besides this one, and of course I took other pictures besides these - but I'm going to share them gradually, when they seem timely, or when the mood strikes me, instead of all at once.
