Editors' Review

ArtRage 4 gives you intuitive and comprehensive control over your drawing tools, allowing your creativity to take the lead.

Pros

Outstanding tool customization interface: Two wheels at the bottom of your screen allow you to control everything, from the type of tool that you're using to the color and size of that tool. There are no menus or radial buttons to sort through, so you're quickly drawing with your preferred instrument.

Great element interaction: The program does an excellent job of making the different tools interact together. For instance, when you apply a paint roller over the top of a watercolor, the watercolor continues to bleed through, until you paint over it in multiple coats.

Extra features: A number of great extra features are also included, such as the Trace option. This lets you put an image behind your canvas that you can trace as you desire.

Cons

Some features need explaining: There are a few options and buttons within the program that could be explained more clearly.

Bottom Line

If you're the creative type and like to draw using the computer, ArtRage 4 is an exceptional tool. The level of control you find is unmatched by many other programs and is easy to implement.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of ArtRage 4.

  • Contains all the features of ArtRage 3 Studio Pro.
  • Paint Symmetry: Use configurable axes of symmetry to create automatically mirrored strokes across the canvas as you work.
  • Scraps and Views: Create scraps of canvas to do test strokes on or use as a mixing palette without damaging your main canvas. Views act as alternative windows in to the canvas, allowing you to view it at multiple locations and zoom levels at once.
  • Clone Tool: A new clone tool gives you flexible options for cloning portions of your canvas.
  • Workbench Mode: Collapse the entire interface in to a single toolbar and work with a clean screen. The Pinboard feature lets you pin important samples, layers, presets, and other items to the Workbench Toolbar for quick access.
  • Toolbox Panel: A single panel that you can fill with the presets, colors, stencils, layers, and other items that are important to the current painting you are working on. The Toolbox is a single composite location for the important features you need in your current project.
  • Gradient Fills: Create procedural gradient fills using a variety of application methods. Supports Photoshop gradient format files for import.
  • Non-Uniform Transformations: Perspective and flexible transformations let you deform layer content.
  • Additional Wacom Stylus Support: Supports the Wacom Airbrush Stylus thumb-wheel, 6D Art Pen barrel rotation, and other properties with configurable options. Also supports Stylus ID, allowing you to assign specific presets to specific styluses if you use more than one.
