For years we've been providing illustrators, animators, designers and digital artists with the tools they need to unleash their creativity. That is why we are excited to expand our portfolio of graphics software solutions with Rebelle 3, the best real-media painting software available on the market.

Whether you're just starting out with digital art or you're a seasoned professional, Rebelle 3 will expand your creative horizons by enabling you to use realistic watercolors and acrylics to produce stunning, true-to-life artwork on your Mac or PC.

The newest version of Rebelle adds considerable functionality to this well-known and powerful digital painting application. New features and improvements include:

  • Improved Realism of Watercolor Brushes to more accurately mimic real-world behavior across different paper backgrounds
  • An expanded set of hyper-realistic paper backgrounds, providing you with ever more control over the behavior of art media
  • A visual settings panel provides the ability to customize watercolor behavior, acrylics, and canvas settings.
  • A new “DropEngine” gives heightened control over the length and size of watercolor drips.
  • The functionality and realism of Rebelle’s blow tool was improved to more accurately simulate the blowing technique vital to achieving its stunning watercolor effects.
  • A New Filter Menu to provide enhanced control of brightness/contrast/Hue/Saturation/Lightness; Color Balance; image Desaturation/inversion; and black to alpha/White to alpha controls, which is very useful when importing an image with a white background
  • Support for various types of Brush/Pen Rotation
  • Drag & Drop Functionality – Easily drag and drop files, brushes, papers, color sets or stencils to appropriate panels. Drag & drop .ZIP assets to main window with canvas and Rebelle will unzip and sort the assets automatically.
  • Enhanced Stencil Control – new settings have been added to the stencils menu within Rebelle 3 to improve your ability to manipulate and control stencils on a canvas
  • Magic Wand – Create selections based on tone and color of pixels. With Rebelle’s powerful magic wand tool, specify the Tolerance, Anti-aliasing, or Contiguous selection, or use Alpha channel.
