Natural painting tools and powerful utilities for everyone from beginners to professionals
ArtRage 4 – The Latest in Natural Art Software
A realistic painting program for Windows and Mac OSX that mimics traditional media
Whether you want to switch from real world painting to digital artwork while keeping that natural feel and artist freedom, perhaps do your own calligraphic inking, find a less frustrating way of learning watercolours, or have some carpet-friendly glitter for your kids, then ArtRage is for you!
- ArtRage 4 offers professional level features, and is incredibly easy to use, allowing everyone from children to professional artists to make the transition from traditional to digital art.
- ArtRage allows you to mix up your own paints, smearing realistically and mimicking real world art canvas textures and paint thickness.
- It has been refined by ongoing feedback from real artists to create the most realistic chalk, oil paints, watercolours, inking pens and more.
- It also offers highly customisable brushes, an intuitive interface that stays out of your way, and more fun and creativity than any other digital art program.
Also available as Android and iOS apps, ArtRage 4 is fully compatible with the mobile editions, allowing you to swap between field sketches to a powerful editing suite on your computer, and replay your recorded mobile works at larger resolutions.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
