No, it's not LW v9... *ducks*

It called Artrage2 and it's the most fun I've had with a painting program in a long time.

http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html

To top things off, it's only $20 USD. I think that's one of the reasons I'm having so much fun with this. It's very simple and intuitive to use, I glanced at the manual to get the skinny on tricks and stuff, but you can have fun right out of the "box".

So, you're insane if you're a digital artist and you don't get this! And I don't mean "insane in a good way". :D

That's cool. I think it is a fair price for it, as in it seems pretty basic.

Yeah, it's quite basic, but it does what it does so naturally, it really does feel like you're painting on canvas, and not on your screen.

So, IMO, it has more value because of that. But yeah, the price is great.

I'm finding it hard to put down right now :)

Nice find! Haven't even heard of it.

Just downloaded the free version. Very well done little app. The oils feel very real.

Yes I use Artrage and I love it. It is basic but that isn't the point, it isn't intended as a PS substitute or even a Painter replacement. It's about feel, it really does feel natural. I choose it over photoshop for sketching, quick roughs etc. Not so much for finished paintings though.

The only feature I REALLY miss is adjustable softness on the airbrush.
