About this app

ArtRage for Android is a realistic painting and drawing app that gives you a toolkit filled with tools that work just like the real thing. Smear and blend thick oils on the screen, sketch with pencils and smudge the strokes to create gradients, work like you would on canvas or paper.

Each tool includes settings that mirror real world properties such as Paint Thinners, Pencil Softness, and other familiar properties. The app includes a range of default presets for every tool, and you can easily create your own specialized custom presets. It also supports pressure data from the Samsung S-Pen to add an element of natural expressiveness to your paint strokes.

Along with the full range of familiar tools like the oil brush, inking pen and pencil tools, ArtRage includes important digital features like Layers with Blend Modes, a Fill Tool, the ability to add Reference and Tracing images while you draw, and more.

ArtRage for Android comes with an intuitive interface that keeps all the important settings readily available but gets out of your way as you work so that you creative flow isn't interrupted.

ArtRage Paintings are fully compatible with desktop versions of ArtRage, and can also be exported as PNG and JPG images. You can import photos as paint layers, reference images or tracing images. Record your paintings as Script files for playback at larger resolutions in our desktop software

Tools:

Oil Brush, Watercolor, Airbrush, Palette Knife, Paint Roller, Paint Tube, Ink Pen, Pencil, Felt Pen, Wax/Chalk Pastel, Eraser, Flood Fill, Glitter Tube, Gloop Pen.

Each tool has a range of settings that reflect familiar properties such as paint thinners or pencil tip softness. Tools apply texture as well as color, and blend under the brush.

Add unlimited Layers to your painting, adjust visibility and opacity, rearrange and merge. ArtRage also supports a full range of Photoshop Layer Blend Modes.


Interface:

Designed for compact operation at different resolutions and screen orientations. The interface has been designed 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 for canvas manipulation, Undo/Redo, and Brush Size, important shortcuts are available without needing menus. Also supports Stylus-only mode to avoid accidental finger painting.


Help & Support:

Includes a built in manual. Free product support available via our Forums or by email to our support team. Please contact us if you encounter any issues.

I'm not an artist but I do enjoy drawing random stuff from time to time and this app seemed interesting. However I was extremely disappointed by the lack of tools options it is seriously for the amount it had really didn't seem worth the price. Especially since Sketchbook has way more options and it's FREE. I regret getting this app but don't want to brother with going through the whole refund thing...if I could even still get a refund. Hope you guys add more options and maybe I would enjoy it.

Awesome app! ArtRage on desktop is awesome, and the mobile version is equally impressive. It's got all the tools you'll need to paint in a variety of styles. It also allows for export to jpg or png for continued work/refinement on desktops. I've run this on a low-end tablet from 2016, and it runs great with no crashes or slowdown--even on large files with multiple layers (I don't know what it is about software developers from New Zealand--this, Mudbox, Mari, they all run well, assuming you have the minimum system requirements they ask for; great coding people!). The price is also great; I'm new to Android and the concept of complaining about software that hovers or breaks the $5.00 limit is a bit foreign to me, but at the currentprice for ArtRage pro, it's a bargain. Highly recommended.

I like this app. I really like the reference option. It does get really buggy from time to time and will crash on occasion, but over all, not too many complaints. My main frustration is that there aren't any ruler tools to improve circles and straight edges. I know they're available on the desktop version, but I use my tablet and phone as I don't have access to a desktop. I'll give it five stars if you can put ruler tools in.
