Of all the digital painting/drawing software I've played with over the years, none have been as jaw-dropping to see in evolution (for me, anyway) as Escape Motions' Rebelle. If you want a digital art software that provides results as close to real-world painting as possible, Rebelle 4 should be on your radar...or, at the time of this writing, your holiday wish list!
Rebelle 4 is about to be released, and the new feature list is looking amazing, including:
- The highly requested and anticipated new oils tool
- New brushes and ability to create and customize brushes
- New impasto dynamic painting technique
- New glazing watercolors
- New clone tool and fill tool
- Larger brushes and a faster, more responsive painting experience
While the new version is yet to be released this month, I'm confident in the pitch from Escape Motions. They consistently come through with their software. They've also been inclined to post several teasers of their new software ahead of release on their blog to stir excitement. So, be sure to head over and see the latest announcements here.
Escape Motions is unique in the software they offer, which have come about from the incredible experiments of founder, Peter Blaskovic. In addition to Rebelle, they offer Flame Painter, which is a painting software utilising unique particle brushes, and Amberlight, which is more in the fractal genre, where you can produce some wicked backgrounds and animations.
The latest Rebelle 4 version will be available for Windows and Mac OS for $89.99 on December 16th, 2020 on the Escape Motions' website. Be sure to check their blog for updates!
