Key Features:

Natural Paints

Natural Paints

ArtRage simulates real world properties of paint like wetness & thickness so that the tools work like the real thing. Smear paint, blend colors, and work with canvas textures to get natural looking results without complex digital processes.

ArtRage Easy Interface

Easy To Use Interface

ArtRage presents the important tools in a simple, clean interface that gets out of the way while you paint. This means you don’t get distracted by complex digital controls and can stay in the creative zone while you work.

Refs and Tracing

References & Tracing

Sometimes it can be handy to have other images open while you work. If you want a visual guide you can pin Reference Images to your canvas, or load a Tracing Image overlay that can apply colors for you automatically.

ArtRage Layers


ArtRage supports Layers – Transparent overlays that let you paint on your canvas without damaging the paint beneath. Each Layer can have its own blend mode so that you can easily generate shading and other effects.

ArtRage Workbench


The new ArtRage 4 Workbench module lets you collapse the entire interface down in to a single toolbar with a customisable pin-board where you can store the tools and presets you want to use for your current project.



ArtRage enhances its natural toolset with utilities tailored to give you the convenience of a computer paint package without getting in your way, like: Undo and Redo, paint symmetry, and automatic file backup.

ArtRage 4 Reviews:

‘The best thing about ArtRage in my opinion is its incredible capability to understand the sculptural qualities of real paint combined with the ability to customise the characteristics of the paint. Thick, textural, impasto highlights; wet paint dragged from thick to thin with a palette knife; glazes running into the furrows of brush strokes. When I’m in ArtRage I feel connected to the media more than I do in any other program.’
‘It is just one of the finest digital painting tools out there, and believe me, I looked at them all.’
‘If you’re a longtime painter, I think that the price is more than fair for an app that provides you with such an unbelievable amount of customization and control. If you seriously want to begin painting, this is a great way for you discover which medium is most attractive to you.’ 5 Stars
‘ArtRage is a fantastic and affordable drawing and painting program that is easy to use for beginners and has enough features that professionals will continue to enjoy it.’
‘ArtRage feels deep and capable, but remains accessible and easy to start with. The attractive price tag doesn’t hurt, either.’ 4 Stars
‘ArtRage is a tool easy enough for the hobbyist and advanced enough for a true artist. ’ 4.5 Stars
‘…the more I fiddle around with ArtRage 4, the more I realize I have literally zero complaints about the program. If you are in need of a painting program, you need to pick up ArtRage 4. Straight up, no excuses. It’s easily one of the best painting programs on the market.’ 5 Stars
