You can paint with thick smeared oils or thinned oil glazes, sketch with pencils, sprinkle glitter, airbrush in soft features, and more. Decorate with gold leaf, silver foil, and other metallic colors.
You can even load in your photos as overlayed Tracing Images or pin them to your canvas as references to help you recreate them as paintings. The user-interface is easy and inspiring to use, and even gets out of your way while you're working.
You can rotate the canvas to how it's most comfortable to paint, zoom in to paint detail, zoom out to see your entire masterpiece.
For the professional user, ArtRage also offers multiple Layers with Photoshop Blend modes for painting, and layered PSD document import and export so you can easily use it alongside your existing tools. Custom color-sets and precise color-pickers are available. Graphics tablet pressure and tilt are supported, as well as multi-monitor systems.
Each of the tools in ArtRage is designed to work like its real world counterpart (minus the smell of paint thinners, and that piece of glitter you just cant get out of the carpet). Thick paint smears and blends, pencils and chalks smudge, and markers work just like they do in the real world. All of the tools can be adjusted to give different effects.
You can paint with thinned oils, use wet or dry markers, soften your pencil and control the hardness of the crayon, and much more. Now ArtRage 5 includes powerful masking and ruler tools, with layer transformations, layer goups, precise pencils and smooth blenders.
It has more file import / export formats, and more new features than you can shake a stick at.
ArtRage is designed to present the most powerful painting technology inside an environment that promotes creativity.
Version 5: ArtRage 5 includes all the features of ArtRage 4, as well as some significant improvements and new tools, such as realistic pencil, pastels, layer effects and custom brushes.
