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

...or even better, put Painter aside! Artrage has grown pretty mature with version 3.

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.
