A couple of months ago, I downloaded a trial version of ArtRage to play with it on my tablet pc. I liked the program so much that after less than an hour of using the trial version, I purchased the full copy. This has been the best $20 I have ever paid for a piece […](image)

A friend of mine pointed me out today to the Modo 201 event video for SIGGRAPH’05.

I found a portrait that my best friend Hassan Fedawy drew me before I left Egypt in 2001. While his website is under construction, it’s worth taking a look at his old artwork. Hassan used to be #1 portraist in Egypt and he has a very unique style!(image)
