Ambient Design Launches Artrage Painting Software for Android

Highlights the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen for Artistic & Creative Expression on Mobile Devices

Auckland, New Zealand, October 17, 2014 -- Ambient Design, the award-winning creator of realistic art software, announced today that it is launching ArtRage for Android, optimized for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.  Samsung has selected ArtRage for availability in a number of global markets for its GALAXY Gifts to provide Note 4 and Note Edge users with the exclusive ability to download the ArtRage software for free.   ArtRage for Android will launch at the same time on Samsung GALAXY Apps for purchase by users of selected Samsung Galaxy mobile products.
ArtRage Creates Realistic Artwork On-the-Go without Appearing Computer Generated
ArtRage provides detailed paint blending and texture, using a simulation of natural artistic tools that work seamlessly with the advanced features of Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen to enable users to create realistic artwork on-the-go.  Artists can use ArtRage on the Samsung Galaxy mobile platform to share their artwork via popular artist communities and social media sites, like PEN.UP, deviantArt, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr, as well as send art by email or save to Dropbox.
“With ArtRage and the S Pen, mobile art can be created without waiting for paint to dry and without carrying a lot of artist’s tools, paints, canvas and paper,” said Matt Fox-Wilson, creative director and co-founder of Ambient Design Ltd.  “ArtRage provides the experience of actually ‘painting’ digitally on a computer canvas with oil paints that smear and blend, and watercolors that flow together to create soft, wet gradations, just as they would in a traditional art studio.”
