ArtRage Vitae is our Premium Natural Painting application for mobile devices!

Get creative on your digital canvas with realistic color blending, mixing oil paint, delicate watercolor, and much more! Ever wanted to try painting your masterpiece but were put off by the mess and expense? Now you can!

ArtRage Vitae isn't just about color: It knows how much paint you've used so you can mix it and spread it on a textured canvas. It knows how wet your paint is so you can blend it with other paints. It even knows about the roughness of your paper so your pencils can be used for soft shading.

It's not just a special effect either - ArtRage Vitae is a live simulation of the properties of real artistic media that lets you get creative with colors and textures using tools you already know how to use!

ArtRage Vitae takes full advantage of the Apple Pencil support for pressure & tilt, and 3D touch on your iPhone when available.

Join the ArtRage community:


Real world painting tools: Oils, Watercolors, Paint Rollers, Pencils, Crayons and more. Each tool has a range of familiar properties such as how much thinner is applied to the paint, or how soft a pencil tip is. Tools apply texture as well as color, and blend under the brush.

Add Layers to your painting and work on individual elements without damaging others. ArtRage supports a wide range of layer effects, layer blend modes, and layer contents can be scaled moved and rotated independently.

Import images, converting them to oil paint for mixing and blending or as Reference Images pinned to the canvas as a visual guide. Load photos as Tracing Images which are overlaid on the canvas, and have ArtRage select colors automatically as you paint.

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.

Record your paintings! The ArtRage Script system lets you record strokes while you paint for playback in desktop versions of the product at higher resolution.

Share your paintings on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Creative Cloud, Dropbox, DeviantArt or any other sharing app on your device.

Almost Perfect

Hi, to the developers, I LOVE this app! For making traditional looking digital oil paintings, it is one of the best, if not the very best. I just have one request: the Undo function is very awkward. The three-finger swipe usually moves the canvas, instead of undoing. Would you be willing to add a two-finger tap to undo?

essential item in art toolkit

Glad to have ArtRage on an iPad pro. The tools are great but for me, ArtRage’s main feature is subtlety. Zoom in as much as you like, and you really don’t see pixels, just the transitions among color and intensity. None of my other great art tools do this. I’d like to see selections added to the iPad OS version..iPhone, too.

The iPad version suffers from unreliable palm rejection, often resulting in the brush size widget appearing as you’re drawing, forcing you to scale the brush size up, then down, in order to dismiss it to resume seeing what you’re drawing. Would hope the devs would address this.

I really want to like it

I keep hoping artrage will impress me but I usually end up disappointed. Clunky U.I., lack of options, just O.K. Brushes that are often cumbersome to use and organized in a frustrating way. If you are a primarily traditional artist, and arent familiar with a lot of software, this might be good for you while you get used to digital art. But for me, an experienced digital artist, this is another letdown. Also, there is no excuse for not including 2 finger tap undo at this point. Its standard across many apps and it is SO frustrating when its not default, or an option.
