Hi all, I just bought this app - bit of a no brainer at 19.95usd - and I thought I would pass along the url. It's very similar to Alias Sketchbook and has similar brushes to Painter 9, these guys actually wrote the colour/paint mixer that shipped with Painter 8. It works great with tablets and I suspect it will prove valauble for making nice textured textures! :wink: There is also a free version, but it doesn't have layers and nor some of the brushes/media as the 'pro' version. And yes it's xplatform. http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html ps. No I don't work for them! Just impressed by the quality of the app. Cheers.
