‘Easy to use but capable of producing stunning results, ArtRage 5 is a must-have digital art package at a bargain price.’
‘Painting app upgrade fueled by an enhanced blend of interface, brushes, and artistic tools.’
ArtRage 5 is straightforward to use from the outset, with a gentle learning curve. It helps you to produce fantastic, realistic-looking results, gives you a lot of customisation if you need it, and is a bargain buy to boot.”

“ArtRage remains the leading traditional art painting program.”
ImagineFX, issue 148
“A great strength of Artrage is the simulation of three dimensional depth. This is particularly striking in the way its oil painting works, which is an absolute delight […] You can start simply with the tools you see the first time you open up the program, but then you can get into as much depth as you like tweaking and customizing your tools as you go along.”
“ArtRage 5 is a great little program where you forget you’re in an app and just enjoy painting/drawing. It’s a great (and more affordable) alternative to the natural media look of Corel Painter without Corel’s cumbersome, over-complicated layout. Artrage 5 got one step closer to the control of Photoshop as tool for illustrators.”
“… to be able to offer such a refined and feature rich package as this at the price they do is nothing less than exceptional. If you want a rock solid digital painting program that feels like you are painting with the real thing and you want all that at a bargain price, then look no further than ArtRage 5.”
“ArtRage Lite is a competent and polished application if you’re just getting started with digital painting. You’re free from confusing toolboxes and endless docks in ArtRage Lite and the learning curve is pretty easy to get over, particularly if you’re already accustomed to using a digitiser pen or already have a traditional media background.”

‘ArtRage gives the user, whether a budding amateur or more seasoned artist, a workable environment in which to develop their creativity…’
