Get real paint for your digital canvas! Ever wanted to try painting your masterpiece but were put off by the mess and expense? ArtRage gives you the feel of real paint at your fingertips with an artist's toolkit filled with realistic tools like smearing oil paint, blending watercolors, shading pencils, soft pastels and much more.

ArtRage tools aren't just about color: They know how much paint you've used so you can smear it around to spread it over the canvas. They know how wet your paint is so you can blend it with other paints. They know about the roughness of your paper so your pencils can be used for soft shading.

It's not just a special effect - It's a live simulation of the properties of real artistic media so you can get creative with colors and textures using tools you already know how to use!

Come join the ArtRage community!



Main Features:

Real world painting tools include Oils, Watercolors, Paint Rollers, Pencils, Crayons and more. Each tool has a range of settings that reflect familiar properties such as how much thinner is applied to the paint, or how soft a pencil tip is. Tools apply texture as well as color, and blend under the brush.

Add Layers to your painting and work on individual elements without damaging others. ArtRage supports a wide range of Layer Blend Modes, and layer contents can be scaled moved and rotated independently.

Import images, converting them to oil for smearing or as Reference Images pinned to the canvas as a visual guide. You can load photos as Tracing Images which are overlaid on the canvas, and have ArtRage select colors from them automatically as you paint.

The interface has been designed specifically for the iPad, compacted to maximize your creative space without hiding away critical functions such as tool and color selection. As you paint, it gets out of the way so that you don’t have to stop and manually adjust panels.

Record your paintings! The ArtRage Script system lets you record strokes while you paint for playback in desktop versions of the product at higher resolution.

Customer Reviews

Keeps deleting completed works 😡

Great App but lagging and glitchy :( With the most recent update it prompts me to save my work but then I do and when I come back to it there's only a blank canvas. This is really annoying, especially after completing a painting and then coming back to nothing😠😡 I want to use this app to do Pro work but the canvas sizes are too low, and the interface feels clunky and out dated. There's no support for Adonit Touch, the newest version. The floating reference image is brilliant! I love this feature! Paint realism is good, but "Art Set Pro" feels more realistic in action and in look i.e. end result is better with "Art Set Pro". Just compare the pastels in both apps and then it's obvious, but Art Set Pro seems lower resolution. Blending isn't as easy as I remember. I really dislike the dry brush blending. It's not realistic at all and introduces odd artifacts. Hope you update soon, either way, thanks.


Artset Pro is definitely better...

The update messed up everything

The most recent update had messed up quite a lot. Before, it was manageable and my favorite art program. With the new update, it causes my whole tablet to lag whenever it's open (even if I'm not in it), and I cannot find what I need 90% of the time due to different arrangements. It would be much better without this update, so I would suggest putting it back to its original form.

Watercolors need work

Lots of fun stuff to work with here. My only beef is with some of the watercolor effects. The wet on wet looks more like an airbrush; there is no real bleeding of the color as in watercolor painting. I would love to see the watercolor aspect of this thing improved a bit.
