Just received a press release on an interesting iPhone Painting app called ArtRage. It’s due to be introduced next month at CES 2012. Here’s the release:

Ambient Design www.artrage.com, the leading award-winning creator of realistic art painting software for Mac & Windows, launched today ArtRage for iPhone powerful physical paint simulation software for the iPhone 4 or later. Based on the award-winning ArtRage Studio and Studio Pro, ArtRage for iPhone provides an unprecedented creative experience on the go that lets users of all skill levels explore natural painting on the iPhone for a live simulation of the properties of real paint.

Express Your Artistic Side with Your iPhone

Priced at only $.99 for a limited time, ArtRage for iPhone lets users express their artistic side with their iPhone with easy to use painting and drawing tools that work like the real thing. It not only places color on a canvas, but it also keeps track of how much paint there is and how “wet” it is, so colors can blend under the brush. It also incorporates canvas grain and drier pigment textured effects and allows Layers to be added to the painting so users can work on individual elements without damaging others. Photos can be imported to smear around like oil paint or used as a Tracing Image that can be overlaid on the canvas.

Designed Specifically for the iPhone – Actual Live Simulation of Properties of Real Paint

Designed specifically for the iPhone, ArtRage for iPhone is compact, maximizing the creative space without hiding critical functions, such as tool and color selection. As the user paints, controls move out of the way so they don’t have to stop and manually adjust panels. In addition, with support for Multi-Touch gestures, important shortcuts are also available without the need of any interface. “ArtRage for iPhone fits the iPhone perfectly as a painting platform,” said Matthew Fox-Wilson, Creative Director, Ambient Design. “It’s not special effects software, it’s an actual live simulation of the properties of real paint.”
