Real-media paint app.


Rebelle is an award-winning watercolor and acrylic painting program created by Escape Motions. Its watercolor simulation is based on a real-world color mixing, blending, wet-diffusion, and drying. Rebelle convincingly mimics the way natural media interacts with the canvas and itself. Users can paint, smear, re-wet dried colors, blow wet washes across the paper, tilt the paper to create water drops and runs and create countless fantastic watercolor effects.

  • Rebelle 2 integrates groundbreaking improvements, watercolor and acrylic brushes got an unprecedented realistic look and together with watercolor masking fluid give an exceptional traditional feel to the digital painting.
  • Completely new brush engine allows users to create custom brushes - round, flat, bamboo, various wet splatters, sponges and many others. Moreover, Rebelle’s various wet tools - watercolors, acrylics or ink pen can be combined with pastels, pencils or any other dry media tools, in wonderfully intuitive ways.
  • New stencils and selection tools together with wet paint diffusion open new creative results yet not possible to achieve in digital art.

This application is absolutely stunning! I have been trying to find similar software to compare but I have not yet found anything comparable. The simplicity in UI design coupled with the brush technology is by far some of the best stuff I have worked with so far.

Really love where this program is headed and the watercolor simulation in particular is astounding. Aside from its standalone quality, for me this will eliminate endless hunting online for quality watercolor resources. Thanks for developing something extremely promising.

This software's a heaven for digital painters - affordable, easy to use and with some beautiful effects I have not yet seen in other software. The tilt effect almost made me cry... Finally a software that actually imitates the real world painting. Hoping for some additional features as salt, alcohol effects, etc.

Very unusual computer program at a relatively affordable price. Rebelle offers quite natural paint abilities. I really like the watercolor and I have just started experimenting. Can't wait to see what great graphics I can create with this software. Making my own stencils is so cool!

This is great, just what I wanted. Not overwhelmed by options, just a few essential media extremely well simulated. After trying Rebelle, I fell in love with the ability to mix paint on the canvas. The price is also a reason as well as how the interface doesn't look cheesy like in many other apps
