1. I only have downloaded SketchBook Pro and I wanted to see what you think about the iPad version of ArtRage. I’ve seen ArtRage as a Painter alternative for the desktop, but since I only use Painter and that satiates my needs in a drawing program, I’ve never used it. Can you list a few pros and cons between the two?
    The one thing that SBP is missing is some sort of selection tool like a lasso to copy and paste from one layer to another or move piles around.
    Your drawings are very colorful and unique!

    1. ArtRage includes more painterly brushes that will blur overlapping colors together in a somewhat realistic way. You can also select various paper textures that remain visible when you use some of the brushes. You can read more about the features on the apple site: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/artrage/id391432693?mt=8

      I’ve made more drawings with sketchbook pro – and I like the speed and several of the brush options. It’s a more graphic look – and does not really include brushes that have a painterly functionality. More features: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sketchbook-pro/id364253478?mt=8

      I have not run into the copy paste tool yet… but both of the above programs allow you to duplicate layers… so that is kind-of copy paste.

      I also ran across this post… and want to get some of the apps they talk about – specifically interested in vector drawing functionality. There are so many to try out…

  2. Here is a sketch I did while on vacation with SketchBook Pro.

    I quickly downloaded ArtRage after reading up on it and it is now my favorite app. The difference in brushes is notable, but I have to say I like ArtRage’s brushes more especially the watercolors and oils. The texture that each medium creates is amkazing! The unlimited undos and layers are a plus and adding reference images to work oof of on the canvass makes this app all the more a better deal for the price. Thanks for the tip.

    I’ll be posting an image created from AR soon. I’ll keep you posted.
