ArtRage is fun. And it’s free. What more do you want?
Visit their web site, download, and install. It runs under Windows. Works ok with a mouse, but for best results you’ll really want a graphics tablet or a tablet PC.
So what is it?
It’s a painting program that acts like real painting tools – oil paints, pencils, crayons, and such like. If you’ve ever used Corel’s Painter Classic, it’s pretty similar. It’s quite splendidly easy to get started, and fun to use. There’s a Gallery on their site to give you an idea of what it can do, or you can see the work of Larry Larsen at GreenJem.
So you had a play?
