We are thrilled to announce recent release of Rebelle 3 - a powerful upgrade to the most realistic natural media application for Windows and macOS. Based on months of studying the watercolors, brushes, testing hundreds of various papers, and working closely with art community, a new Rebelle 3 unites tradition and technology with an original approach.

“We put art first. This new version comes again closer to blur the line between traditional and digital painting as it will give the artists an infinite range of expression possibilities packed in a simple interface,” says the founder and head behind Rebelle algorithm, Peter Blaškovič. “Rebelle 3 has made big strides in improving the realism of its world-class watercolor brushes, which can now accurately mimic all sorts of behavior on different paper surfaces.”

Rebelle 3 Key Features

• Ultra-realistic papers - In the new version you can use not only textured paper backgrounds, but also an imitation of real watercolor papers, some of them with deckled - rough and irregular edges. You can get more papers
from Rebelle website. More different papers and canvases will be available for download in the next months.

• Watercolor simulation code re-design - To adapt to the new papers, a watercolor simulation code has been rewritten to be even more realistic than before. In Rebelle 3 you will be able to change the watercolor behavior and other settings via Visual Settings panel.

• New ‘DropEngine’ - We implemented a unique “DropEngine” especially to simulate drips and connected it with watercolor simulation. Drips behave very naturally - their appearance is influenced by paper structure, stencils and selections.

• ‘Masking Fluid’ layer - The masking fluid allows you to paint freely over the masked area. Using this handy tool, there’s no need to paint around complex objects laboriously any more.

• Straight line, Ruler & Perspective tools – Rebelle 3 introduces you to the new useful drawing assistants. You can lock the control points to prevent ruler from moving by accident, or paint with a freehand, so the lines will not be “too digital” when painting.

• ‘Reference Image’ and ‘Preview’ panel - Reference image panel was one of the most demanded features from Rebelle users. This panel serves as a visual guide while painting. Preview panel is very practical when you work on detail but you don’t want to zoom in & out all the time to see the whole picture.

• Magic Wand - This newly implemented tool will help you create selections based on tone and color of the pixels.

• Support for pen rotation - Support for brush rotations which is now available by activating Follow Brush, Pen tilt or Pen rotation setting.

• Canvas and Image resize - Other great news is the implementation of ‘Canvas Size’ and ‘Image Size’ - a new tool that will serve for cropping, scaling and resizing your work.

• New „Filter“ menu – This new menu allows artists to make desired color adjustments to their painting, with a help of such as Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation, Lightness, Color Balance and other color filters.

Once I was in a huge art gallery, I don’t remember where it was exactly, but it was full of original artworks, statues and fantastic machines. There were just a few people and it was possible to examine them. Many of the machines were pretty crazy. I specially remember one, it was hanging from the ceiling, kind of a mechanic shell with long arms. I put my right hand into the hole and started to rotate a lever. The whole machine began to turn, its arms were swinging around, creating beautiful symmetric trails in the air. I was thrilled, thinking how creative people are. If I had such ideas that would be awesome! I would love to create such gadgets too.

Then, I woke up.

I looked around and realized - all these ideas are in my head, they are my imagination! That’s fantastic, all of them are my creations inspired by… hmm… where are they coming from?

This is how Inspirit was created. It is a realization of my imagination. It was materialized on the paper, later written into the computer code and now everyone is able to paint beautiful harmonic mandalas or crazy kaleidoscopes on their devices. Isn’t that awesome?

Peter Blaškovič, creator of Inspirit

We are very excited and grateful to announce that Rebelle 2 is released today and integrates groundbreaking improvements including stencils, masking tools, PSD support, new brush system and more. The time has come to deliver this new version of the revolutionary paint software from the hands of the developers and beta testers to you, our dear artists, to create breathtaking artworks.

Rebelle 2 brings extraordinary improvements, watercolor and acrylic brushes got an unprecedented realistic look and together with watercolor masking fluid give an exceptional traditional feel to the digital painting. Completely new brush engine allows users to create custom brushes - round, flat, bamboo, various wet splatters, sponges and many others. New stencils and selection tools together with wet paint diffusion open new creative results yet not possible to achieve in digital art. This new super charged version comes with full multi-touch support and layered PSD support. All these convenient features are wrapped in an agreeable and easy to use interface with a tiny learning curve.

The Key Features of Rebelle 2

• New brush engine - Newly implemented brush engine allows users to create unlimited brush variations. Users are able to create their own custom brushes or enjoy by default implemented shapes - round, flat, bamboo, various splatters, sponges and many others. With option to use GPU acceleration (yet experimental), brushes can have bigger size and faster response.

• Creative Stencils and Masking Fluid -  Stencils in combination with watercolor diffusion opens new possibilities for budding artists. Users can mask out painting areas, wet the paper and let the watercolor simulation create its magic.

• Selection Tools - Create quick masks and define shapes that block off the areas you do not wish to change. Classic freehand, polygonal, elliptical and rectangular selections got a new meaning when used in combination with traditional wet media.

• Layered PSD Support - An implemented layered PSD import & export is compatible with Adobe Photoshop and other applications and enables to transfer works smoothly also into other 3rd party graphic applications.

• Faster Performance - Undo/redo and file management are optimized so the whole painting process including opening and saving big artworks is much more fluent.

• Multi-touch Experience - Rebelle has a complete support for multitouch gestures for Wacom, Microsoft, Apple and alternative tablet and trackpad devices including Astropad application.

• User Interface - Interface is intuitive and easy to use, ideal for beginners or traditional professionals which may find that creative process can be very fluent also in a digital art. Simplicity and every important feature in reach is the first thing you find when using Rebelle.

Dearest DeviantArtists,

We would like to share with you that we’ve successfully launched Rebelle - the real-media paint tool on Thursday 28/05/2015.

Rebelle is a one-of-a-kind paint application that lets you create realistic watercolor, dry media, and acrylic artwork, complete with stunning real-world dynamic simulation of fluid flow, color blending, wet diffusion, and drying. The revolutionary new desktop application from Escape Motions is a breakthrough in the world of digital painting. Rebelle convincingly mimics the way natural media interacts with canvas and itself. It’s the closest a digital tool has ever come to recreating the real-time flow, spontaneity, and feel of traditional materials. Moreover, its various wet tools - watercolors, acrylics or ink pen can be combined with pastels, pencils or any other dry media tools, in wonderfully intuitive ways. With its unparalleled organic feel it is a one of the must-have's for every artist’s digital toolbox.

Rebelle is designed for CG artists as well as for traditional painters who want to explore and broaden their artistic repertoire, using the latest ground-breaking digital painting technology.
Watch our trailer here - youtu.be/HHEXBiH0TRU

Rebelle's official DeviantArt Group is available, become a part of the family!

Rebelle is available for Windows and Mac OS for $59.99 from May 28th 2015 on the Escape Motions website. Mac App Store edition will be available soon.

For more information, please visit Rebelle website

Hello everyone!

After long months of development, we can finally show you our new tool for both CG and traditional artists! With a great pleasure and excitement we would like to introduce you…

Rebelle is a real watercolor and acrylic painting program, a masterpiece created by Peter Blaskovic. The initial vision was to achieve the most realistic watercolor painting tools possible. Watercolor is one of the most difficult painting techniques and it is tough to simulate its effects in a digital world but after more than a year of prototyping and experimenting Rebelle handles this incredibly! Rebelle’s watercolor simulation is based on real world color mixing, blending, moistening and drying.You can paint, smear, wet already dried colors, blow them on the paper, tilt the paper to create water drops and get all the beautiful watercolor effects.

View more wonderful pieces of artwork on Rebelle’s website.

The boundaries you thought the digital painting world has are torn down. Watch the colors blend together the way you’ve never seen before on your desktop:

 

or try the free experimental online tool (Java is required). 

When will Rebelle be available?

We are currently working on developing desktop version for Windows and Mac OS. This involves implementation of the planned features, fixing the non-planned bugs, but the hardest part is behind us. We would like to release Rebelle within a few weeks. 

Great news is that all Flame Painter and Amberlight users will have a chance to pre-purchase Rebelle already next week for a special price. We’ll be sending out newsletters with more information soon. Meanwhile visit the website to learn more about Rebelle. 

Stay tuned!

Escape Motions is now releasing Amberlight, a new procedural art program that creates unique computer generated images. A beautiful connection of mathematics and art is a visualization of the algorithm created by Peter Blaškovič. In the world of computer art this is one-of-a-kind tool that will broaden artistic horizons and allow every user to design stunning artworks.

“It all started as a remake of my older favorite project, an experimental particle field sandbox which is still available on Escape Motions website. With modification of the experiment and adding many new features Amberlight was born. Imagine cosmic particles flying through the universe through your canvas, and it's your role to catch them and drive them with the special Amber fields. You can easily change and play with different fields parameters – that is Amberlight. I believe that anyone can enjoy it; it's creative enough for a professional artist but simple enough for an amateur.” Peter says.

Amberlight has many innovative features:

- unique math algorithm which generates beautiful complex patterns

- high performance Amberlight renderer

- create high resolution pictures for print media

- intuitive easy-to-use interface

- beautiful gradients, that give you great looking image colors

 

Moreover, these images can be exported into other graphic applications and become a part of bigger creative projects. Similar to fractal programs, but equipped with original mathematics and easy-to-use interface no matter if you are an advanced artist or a complete art beginner, by playing and experimenting with Amberlight you are able to create fantastic pictures.

Amberlight is available from December 10th worldwide for $29.99 for Mac OS X and Windows. Users who have purchased Flame Painter have an opportunity to use 50% introductory discount in the first two weeks.

Similarly to Flame Painter, Amberlight was also originally created as Peter Blaškovič's 'I am an Artist' experimental project. The initial vision was to create the application where anyone could create original artworks. The inspirational nature of the application shows that everyone can be an artist; with all the essential tools that then become the inspiration and motivation for creativity.
