    Greedy is not the word, instead Improvements

    Greedy? Newer versions seem to improve features and buying their products is a motivation for them to improve, Art Rage needs a way to make money while working on such.

    Art Rage brought about one of the more futuristic improvements thinking of their users instead of controlling the user's ability to use their software. They made Art Rage usable on a Linux operating system through the WINE application. Many other software producers that you pay for try to close you into limited use dictated by their control, restricting your freedom and flexibility for use. Linux may well be the most popular operating system in the future and Ambient Design has the foresight to take this into consideration when creating software for their users, allowing more freedom, flexibility, and creativity.
    I have a personally designed artwork gallery website at: www.stephenlopiano.com
    There is one section full of pages there under the Digital Artwork category that is devoted entirely to paintings I have created with Art Rage.

    I'm not one to gossip, but....
    Yes. Soon-ish.
    As always, it's taking longer to get it out the door than we expect.

    Available as a Linux Beta Tester

    Although not officially supported at this time would you like to have a Linux Beta Tester - I'm currently (successfully) running AR5 on a Manjaro OS-based system. Two of my main interests are studying Concept Art and Animation.

    I would also like to add that I am successfully running ArtRage 6 on Manjaro, simply installed using Wine.

    Andy, Good news. Distinctly good news.

    The market never stands still. Artrage is simply the best, but ...

    Just to update...
    Last year was somewhat more complicated that anyone anticipated for soooooo many reasons.
    We're close to release of the major update to ArtRage for Windows and MacOS.
    Yes, it's taking much longer than we wanted.

    Thank you all for your patience!
