For the inspiration project @ Simple-ism

Inspiration came from the banner I made for Paint-o-Rama for MTM issue #3, when I asked what to make for the featured group banner, Flyindreams said "rainbow + paintbrush".

Originally wanted to just have rainbow and paintbrush, but the paintbrush looked kinda weird floating in mid-air, so I drew a hand (from a photo of my hand).

I don't think I intended it to be so... realistic, but I started playing around with Gouche brush and the Blender, and this came to be the result.

Rainbow done in ArtRage, everything else done in Paint IX, with Wacom Graphire 4

    ArtRage + Tablet = So much fun. ^_^
    Nice painting on the hand, maybe some outlines would help cut back on the realistic feel of it?

    Lovely, it's very much like you :) I like it how softly the colours of the rainbow blend into each other. Classic <3

    Thanks for sharing!

    Haha, cute!
    I think the hand ould look better if the shadows where the fingers meet was darker. Not really a line so much, but a thinner, darker shadow. Skin tone is great though. Like on the left edge I think there should be some highlight too. It looks too flat. I'm perfectly aware you didn't mean the realism, btw....

    Artrage is fun. Still haven't tried it with a tablet... (openCanvas owns my soul)

    The hand needs some outlines, I guess. But I simply love the idea.
