    I bought a Wacom Tablet and got ArtRage Studio with it, and the color mixing is really poorly implemented. Kind of pitiful. Then I have read you have to turn on the Real Blending Mode. (isn't it curious that you have to turn on a "real" mode for a program that bills itself as a real world media software? Just saying......) Apparently its suppose to be under Tools-->Color Options, but I don't see that. Is the take away is that ArtRage Studio just doesn't have this feature?

    Hello TimothyP and welcome to the ArtRage forums
    ArtRage Studio3 was a lite version of Studio3 Pro and the Real Colour Blending option is only available in the old Studio3 Pro version (discontinued) or the current ArtRage 4.5.
    If you want to try a more up to date version of ArtRage, then a trial version of ARTRage 4.5 can be downloaded from here:
    Of course as a demo version it has some restrictions as listed but time is not one of them.

    The reason there's are different kinds of colour mixing is because:

    1. Consistency with other digital applications. The 'default' mode is the same one used across most digital art apps.

    2. Computing power. Essentially, the default mode uses shortcut calculations, and the realistic mode uses the original calculations, requiring about four times the processing power.

    And yes, you would be eligible for an upgrade if you wanted this.
