Have Fun with Digital Painting

ArtRage

Set your imagination free and get your creative juices flowing. Let the painter in you find expression, and mix metaphors on a digital canvas. Here’s an application for digital art beginners as well as maestros (and of course, wannabes) who want to move on from Windows’ Paint and take their skills to the next level. Available for both Windows and Mac OS X, ArtRage is best used with a graphics tablet or a Tablet PC where the user can use different types of brushes, pens, pencils, and crayons in a seemingly realistic environment, but without the mess. A unique feature of the software is its ability to load a picture that can be used as a canvas, or as tracing paper that can be painted over. Of course, you may opt to start with a blank canvas, utilizing varying canvas textures and background colors to create an original work of art.

However, this freeware is not without its own quirks. Brush strokes lag behind the cursor, and pressure sensitivity can be inconsistent. Despite these limitations, this painting application lets you have some good fun with a few master strokes of the brush.
