Wow, that’s such a steal, thank you for mentioning it! My Rebelle 3 was bought in a Humble Bundle for 15$, but the only thing I actually use in the Bundle was Rebelle.
The downside though, is my low power portable Windows tablet was utterly defeated by Rebelle 3. Let’s see if Rebelle 5 fare any better (of course the best course of action is using my beefy laptop but I would like to temp fate )
Internal server error right after purchasing. Was there too many people flocking in to take advantage of the deal?
Edit: Rebelle 5 was actually a lot better optimized and my Dual core Celeron Tablet was able to run and paint on it without much lag (as long as I don’t go overboard on brush size). The tablet get hot while running Rebelle which is expected, but it’s fully usable for drawing.
Also, be sure to get the Pro version as it had all of the new features that matter ( cmyk mixing and pixel sense)
I bought a humble bundle from them in 2021 and got a bunch of other photographs and photo edditing software from them.
Main purpose was getting paint shop as a photoshop alternative and try out Painter. Didn’t extensively use them because I was lazy to learn new interface and painter was much more heavy on the pc and interface was clunky.
Hmm, I’ve not used the latest Vitae version of ArtRage, but from my recollection of the older versions:
ArtRage is much lighter weight, but the simulation of the thick paints and watercolour is not as accurate and feels slightly artificial. Good for quick sketching with minimal battery usage on older PCs.
Rebelle is heavier than AR, but still lighter on the CPU than say Painter, and provides natural color mixing and fractal resizing and exports which Painter lacks. So I’d say this is what I’d use for general purpose painting.
Now this could be old bones talking, but Painter still seems somehow the most ‘natural’ in terms of feel of how the paint is laid down. Especially with say, the fine response of the Sargeant brushes, it just seems to get me more into the ‘fine art’ mood.
Sorry for the totally emo/subjective descriptions, but it’s best I can do to convey my feeling using these art apps.
