ArtRage 1.0.2 iPad


Express your artistic side with easy to use painting and drawing tools that work just like the real thing!

ArtRage takes the award winning technology of the desktop version and packages it into a creative experience tailor-made for your iPad. Explore a powerful and intuitive painting simulation that lets users of all levels work with a wide range of natural painting and sketching tools.

ArtRage keeps track of how much paint is on your canvas, so you can blend colors under the brush as you paint, or lay down thick lines of pigment for flattening and smearing with the Palette Knife. Watercolors react to the wetness of the brush and paper beneath, creating hard edged wet strokes or blending to create soft gradients. Canvas grain affects the look of your strokes, and drier pigments break up on the surface to create textured effects.

By taking care of the complex properties of the tools for you, ArtRage lets you get right down to expressing yourself without needing to learn settings or image processing techniques.

Add Layers to your painting to work on individual elements without damaging others. ArtRage supports a wide range of industry standard Blend Modes and lets you manipulate objects on each layer, scaling moving and rotating them.

Import photos, converting them to oil for smearing, or as Reference Images pinned to the canvas as a guide while you work. You can load photos as Tracing Images that 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. With support for Multi-Touch gestures, important shortcuts are available without needing any interface.
