ArtRage overview

ArtRage gives you a range of artistic tools such as oil paints, pencils, and felt pens that look and feel like their real world counterparts so you can get right down to painting without having to learn how they work.

You can create your own artwork from scratch, import photos as tracing images to guide your art, and even pin images to your canvas for reference as you paint, as well as take advantage of many professional digital editing features and customizable tools.

ArtRage is also available as iOS and Android apps, as well as a Lite version for Windows and macOS. Desktop licences for Lite and ArtRage 5 cover both platforms. For more information visit the ArtRage homepage.

  • Docking and lights out interface modes
  • Customizable perspective (one- and two-point, transform paint to match perspective)
  • Guides
  • Layer effects (e.g., drop shadow, glow, emboss)
  • Warp (liquefy) filter

  • Improved color sampling options (select from an area, select by hue, luminance, saturation, metallic)
  • Improved fill tool (fill neatly to border, slow motion, ignore gaps)

  • Improved performance
  • Multiple documents

ArtRage is a wonderful tool for me as an academically trained artist, it's nothing less than a dream mobile atelier. There's the learning curve to digest, but once this is done it's the perfect digital painting studio I say, even if you don't ask! What needs to be known is this app is too powerful for the once in a while doodlers, so I would recommend mainly for serious artists or aspiring ones. It's the best in this app category by far with an unbeatable price!

Retina please.. I'm getting so used to the sharpness that when I open an app that's not, I feel like I need to see an ophthalmologist.. or that I jumped back in time to Mac Quadra or something ;0)

Without a doubt, one of the most convoluted, byzantine paths to an upgrade I've ever experienced! Developers: are you listening?

Wow what a nice app! It is a real pleasure to discover we can paint whit a computer. Like everybody I have been drawing since I was a child but I'm still drawing now on paper. Alongside with this I'm making photo of course and the best is that you can draw on photos and save it as jpg, tiff, PNG, BMP, very the coolest way for me to add effects on photos. Well, if you like to paint or drawing or just relax give it a try. Note: the actual version is 3.5.4. And on their website: Winter Sale: ArtRage Studio Pro for Windows and Mac OS X just $49.90 (normal price $80)!

GREAT SOFTWARE!! Very intuitive to use. The effects and structures of the brushes are amazing! The great thing of ArtRage is the easy usage. As a beginner you can achieve incredible results with only using the default settings. I'm used to the Adobe Creative Suite. But for illustrations I now use ArtRage! It integrates perfectly with Photoshop because you can export to PSD (with layers).

I'm amazed there are so few reviews on this... only two since I commented in 2006 ?! This app is sooo cool and pretty... yep that is the word... just upgraded to 3 Pro. This pretty much turns your screen into a canvas... Of course it is not so much fun without a Pen Table I guess.. but if you want to draw, paint, relax and make your computer into something a little more human... then get this :-) You might even get your kid off of GrandTheftAuto and avoid the child pyschiatrist ;-) Or show grandma the computer isn't so complicated after all... And if you are a designer (like me).. well.. put Photoshop aside for a little... Did I mention I love this app ?!? 50 stars

Artrage 3.0 is a must have in the digital artist toolbox. It will make you fall in love with art again and if you already are in love you will fall deeper and harder. It is a joy to play and paint with real world simulated tools like oil paint, the newly added watercolor, chalk, crayon, pencil, paint roller, artist airbrush, a newly added gloop tool, felt pens and the newly added illustrator's ink pen with auto smoothing and last, but not least, the amazing new stickers feature. Add shiny stickers to your artwork or load them in an object sprayer that sprays them out at an unbelievable rate and they can interact with other paint or mediums on your canvas. Add to this easier transform tools, a paint bucket type fill tool, selection tools, newly added text capability and now a real color blending mode. This is an amazing upgrade to 2.5 which was an amazing program to begin with. The cost to value ratio is definitely on the side of the digital artist. One of the best buys for the money out there. It can and is used by professional artists and illustrators but is also a great tool for the amateur artist who will find it an invaluable tool to improving their art.

I find that Painter has become very dry over time, especially since the Corel years... less and less fun and more and more "palettish" and here you have ArtRage and its great ergonomy, not as powerful of course but but sufficient realworld paint/draw tools to do plenty. As for comments I read about resolution... not sure if pixels were limited in an earlier version... but I tried to set my page at 3508px X 4961px and it works (not quite real time but close on my G4... sure it'd be a breeze on a Quad G5 ) and that equates to an A3 page at 300 dpi... I would think it might suffice for most professional print uses LOL And it seems one could make one's page even much bigger (depending on Hardware of course). Yep very sweet app !!!!! It should be bundled with the OS... iPAINT LOL

Beautiful, elegant, responsive. Teamed with a graphics tablet this is an app which reminds you of what it was like to paint with real paints on real canvas.

Great app for a bargain price. You can have lots of fun and do amazing stuff. Nice clean interface, unlike Painter. (Okay, the two don't really compare, but I hate Painter's bloated pallets interface.) The other sketch app, SketchBook Pro, costs 10 times as much. For sketching and painting on my Mac, ArtRage offers plenty of tools and really responsive developers. This app needs more Mac exposure. We really need more apps like these. Thanks for the continuing Mac support!

Pure fun. That's all that needs to be said. MS Paint has NOTHING on this. And the best part about it, you don't have to use a powerful image editor that takes up half your RAM. Five stars across the board!

Draw and paint apps have always been difficult to master. ArtRage has broken down this barrier. Old shool artists will definitely jump into this app by choice. The freedom just to sketch and paint without a learning curve is there. Just a plain thank you from a designer/artist such as myself.

This is REALLY a great app-it's just like drawing on a canvas, AND it's FREE (and shareware) it's a really nice looking app and it's HEAPS cooler than MS Paint.
