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.

"ArtRage 4 is a must-have app for every artist"

July 23, 2015  |  By markpreston_1

 |  Version: ArtRage 4 4.5.2

Pros

ArtRage 4 is a very intuitive emulator of natural media, the simulation of ink and watercolours could have been better though.

Cons

Some tools are hard to work with

Summary

I love almost all ArtRage tools, it is a heaven on earth working with it on wacom tablet with pen pressure, I love the organic feel of the application as well as its simplicity of use. However some tools are hard to work with or at least it takes time to learn.

"Great program for recreational use by family."

April 30, 2013  |  By nonib17

 |  Version: ArtRage 2.6.0

Pros

It has enough tools and features to enable the novice user to express an incredible range of artistic ideas. Young children can learn the basics easily and grow their own ideas.

Cons

The learning curve for advanced features is a bit much. But if one has the time to devote to learning via tutorial videos available on the web, not an issue.

Summary

This program has enough advanced features in it to accommodate most home users aside from perhaps professionals. The basics are easy to learn, allowing the user to create stunning artwork.

"all in one painters toolkit"

September 11, 2011  |  By wolfschweizer

 |  Version: ArtRage 2.6.0

Pros

makes digital painting possible similar to real painting

Cons

Sometimes a little bit slow, especially on netbooks

Summary

This is a great program. For 59 Dollars at the moment you get a complete toolkit for painting. For this money you could not even buy the basic colors and pens you need for real painting, not to mention brushes and canvas. This program is the one that simulates real painting the best of all programs I know. Of course it doesn`t have all features of Corel painter, but that makes it easy to use on the other hand, and you get results very fast. After a few minutes trying around you are already able to start painting almost like in real life.The metallic paint function is great. This is a pure PAINTING program, not a picture manipulation program like Photoshop. But combined with the free GIMP you have a complete painting and picture manipulation kit for under 60 dollars. You probably will not even be able to use all the possibilities you have with these two programs.

I mentioned before artrage could be a little bit slow on netbooks. That was because of a bad software configuration on my netbook. After I disabled the automatic translation program "lingoes" which was running in the background (causing no problems with other programs), artrage was no more slow at all. Now it is the fastest painting program I know, and it runs fast on an acer netbook with 1 GB memory.

I have artrage 3.5 studio pro

"really fun and creative, but a bit of a learning curve"

June 07, 2010  |  By andkarena

 |  Version: ArtRage 2.5.2

Pros

many creative tools available and gives a nice drawing canvas

Cons

there is a bit of a learning curve and no obvious getting started help

Summary

This software is excellent bang for the buck. Most people can do everything with this they want to do. Few people need anything more fancy like corel or adobe. Even children can use this, but it takes a little time and experimentation to learn it.

"Just one word: Amazing!"

December 28, 2009  |  By V25K

 |  Version: ArtRage 2.5.2

Pros

It is clear from all other comments: ArtRage is amazing!

Cons

None and this 'minimum 10 characters' is killing me :D

Summary

It is clear from all other comments: ArtRage is amazing! it is fun and also professional, it has lots of great tools and I specially like the glitter brush, version 2.5 is affordable and useful but if you are a pro ArtRage 3 is also out now, it has lots of new tools and new interface, currently four versions are available: free demo version, ArtRage2, ArtRage3 and ArtRage3 Pro, if you want it for fun go for free demo version or ArtRage2, and pro users can choose between ArtRage3 or ArtRage3 Pro. I think it worth every penny you spend :)
