Remember ArtRage? The painting, drawing, art program from Ambient Designs was a favorite for Tablet PC owners and won Microsoft’s Think In Ink Contest back in 2004. Ambient Designs kept innovating and eventually evolved ArtRage tailored for UMPCs and the Mac. Well, there is a recently recleased iPad version of ArtRage available and it brings back fond memories of these Tablet PC/UMPC versions. At the moment and through October 25 it is on sale for $3.99 down 40% from its regular $6.99 price.
The occasion of the sale is the iAMDA Mobile Digital Artist Conference sponsored by Ambient Designs, taking place at the Tisch School of the Arts this weekend.
For those who might not remember ArtRage, the application allows you to lay down digital ink and blend that ink together using various artists tools. You can create your own images or work and alter existing photos. I am not much of an artist when it comes to drawing and painting, but ArtRage was always one of those Apps on my Tablet PCs and UMPCs that helped show off what those devices were capable of. And of course, ArtRage can still be used on your desktop, Tablet PC, UMPC, or what have you. I’ll have to give it a go on the Tega v2.
