ArtRage Sketch, Draw, Paint

Whether you dabble in sketch or paint masterpieces, ArtRage is one of the best apps around. If you use a tablet then this is a must have. It’s a paid app but probably the most value you can get out of a painting tool.

Since the app is meant for artists, a lot of thought seems to have gone into the unconventional interface. Icons and tools that hide away to give you more canvas area, small details like watercolor spreading based on wetness and a knife tool reacting to pressure are what really sets
