What's New

Fixed a bug that caused rendering artefacts on the iPhone 6 Plus - Paintings were being created properly but displayed with white bands.

Updated for iOS 8 and larger phone screen resolutions.

App Description

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

ArtRage packs a powerful physical paint simulation into a creative experience that lets users of all skill levels explore natural painting on the iPhone.

ArtRage doesn't just place color on a canvas, it keeps track of how much paint there is and how wet it is, so you can blend colors under the brush as you paint without changing to a blending tool, or lay down thick lines of pigment for flattening and smearing with the Palette Knife.

Canvas grain affects the look of your strokes, and drier pigments break up on the surface to create textured effects. It's not just a special effect, it's a live simulation of the properties of real paint.

Add Layers to your painting to work on individual elements without damaging others. Import photos to smear around like oil paint, or 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 iPhone, compacted to maximize your creative space without hiding away critical functions such as tool and color selection. As you paint, controls get 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.

Tools:
- High quality strokes respect the volume of paint on the canvas, letting you play with texture as well as color.
