In Auckland, New Zealand, October 17, 2014 — Ambient Design (www.artrage.com), the award-winning creator of realistic art software, announced today that it is launching ArtRage for Android, optimized for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Samsung has selected ArtRage for availability in a number of global markets for GALAXY Gift. This will provide Note 4 and Note Edge users the exclusive ability to download the software for free.

ArtRage for Android will launch at the same time on the Samsung GALAXY Apps for purchase by users of selected Samsung Galaxy mobile products.

ArtRage creates realistic artwork on-the-go without appearing computer generated

ArtRage provides detailed paint blending and texture, using a simulation of natural artistic tools that work seamlessly with the advanced features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen to enable users to create realistic artwork on-the-go. Artists can use ArtRage on the Samsung Galaxy mobile platform to share their artwork via popular artist communities and social media sites, like PEN.UP, deviantArt, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr, as well as send art by email or save to Dropbox.


For a limited time ArtRage for Android will be available exclusively from Samsung GALAXY Apps, free for Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge users through Samsung GALAXY Gifts. For other Samsung Galaxy mobile device users, it will also be available at US$4.99. Check GALAXY Apps in your region for details. ArtRage support for additional Android devices is planned for early 2015.


Matt Fox-Wilson, creative director and co-founder of Ambient Design Ltd:

“With ArtRage and the S Pen, mobile art can be created without waiting for paint to dry and without carrying a lot of artist’s tools, paints, canvas and paper,”
“ArtRage provides the experience of actually ‘painting’ digitally on a computer canvas with oil paints that smear and blend, and watercolors that flow together to create soft, wet gradations, just as they would in a traditional art studio.”

Major Features


  • High quality rendered strokes show the amount of paint on the canvas, letting you play with texture as well as color.
  • Oil Brush with paint thickness and smearing.
  • Watercolor with fluid dynamics to simulate stroke blending and spreading.
  • Airbrush with soft color spray.
  • Palette Knife for spreading and blending pigment.
  • Paint Roller & Tube for laying down thick coats of paint.
  • Inking Pen with auto-smoothing and pressure simulation.
  • Pencil & Marker Pen, Chalk & Crayon and Eraser for drawing and sketching.
