ArtRage: Draw, Paint, Create Android APK & Reviews

Written by mujeer

ArtRage for Android is a realistic painting and drawing app that includes all the most useful tools from our desktop edition. Along with a full range of awesome, easy to use, drawing tools like the oil brush, inking pen and glitter, it includes a full range of the most important digital art features, like Layers, Fill Tool, Layer Blend Modes, the ability to add Reference and Tracing images while you draw, and of course, our incredibly fun color mixing. All the tools act like real paint, pencil or chalk, and interact in different ways with each other and the canvas texture.

You can also tweak a wide range of real-world settings, like thinners, pressure and loading, smooth out your sketches and inked lines with our auto-smoothing ink pen and pencil, go crazy with multicolored, metallic glitter, or mimic thick impasto effects with the paint tube and palette knife. The app includes a range of default presets for every tool, and you can easily create your own specialized custom presets.

Paintings are fully compatible with desktop versions of ArtRage, and can 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

ArtRage for Android comes with the intuitive, familiar ArtRage interface, reliable tech support, and full in-app support for pressure and tilt in the S Pen. Your ArtRage files can be easily transferred to the desktop to finish in any desktop edition of ArtRage. We’re proud of our painting programs and place a high priority on user feedback and stable, bug-free apps that let you create the art you want without having to fight with menus, complicated brush settings and obscure terminology to get there.

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.

Color picker on long press is horrible. It keeps switching on and unintentionally changes color when drawing dots or small, slow circles with s pen. That’s very annoying and unacceptable behaviour! Also undo does not always work leaving unwanted marks. UPDATE: I spent more time recently in artrage and I like it more then when I originally bought it. The brush strokes seems to be more fluid and less laggy what makes it more engaging to use. Long press for color picker however could be less sensitive! Update2: +1 for tilt support on Cintiq hybrid 🙂 this the only app on android that does it!!!
