Silvy by Georg Ireland

Utilizing primarily palette knives and flat brushes, this time Georg Ireland uses self-made structures for the first time, a feature introduced in Rebelle 7 Pro. His objective was to replicate the dynamic effect of maneuvering a loaded palette knife with fluctuating pressure across a textured surface. A job well done.

Radiance by Avinash Rajesh

The theme Avinash chose for this challenge is the "Radiance of a Peacock," a symbol of beauty and vibrancy. He aimed to capture the intricate details and vibrant colors of the peacock and we think this mission was accomplished beautifully.

Cpt.Nemo by Beren Davis 

This entry features Captain Nemo, a classic literary character. Beren began with a hand-drawn ink sketch using a worn nib and Japanese ink, then imported it into Rebelle. Using an expressive ink and wash technique, he added watercolors and various brushes for finishing touches. What a great way to combine traditional and digital art.
