What’s Next for Rebelle 3

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 16:45:52 +0200

In the last blog post, we announced the upcoming arrival of a brand new Rebelle 3 that will feature ultra-realistic watercolor papers and authentic blow tool, support for various watercolor behavior via the new ‘Visual Settings’ panel and a new ‘DropEngine’. Today, we’d like to introduce another set of features that will make you fall in love with this software even more: ‘Masking Fluid’ layer, Ruler & Perspective tools, Reference Image, Image Preview & Canvas size tool.

‘Masking Fluid’ layer

Last year, Rebelle 2 introduced various tools for creating a mask on canvas including selections and stencils. With stencils, you could simply grab ink, pencil or any other tool, paint a mask on the canvas and create a stencil from it. Or you could create a selection and turn it into a stencil with just one click. Rebelle 3 will go even further and feature a ‘Masking Fluid’ layer which locks non-transparent pixels of the layer. When painting on the ‘Influenced layer’, all pixels will be masked by the ‘Masking Fluid Layer’. This is a quick and easy way of coloring sketches and images. 

Straight line, Ruler & Perspective tools

The next Rebelle version will bring new possibilities for drawing straight lines and perspectives.

The fastest way to paint a straight line in Rebelle 3 is to press a [Shift] key, set the starting point, press the mouse button or a pen to set the ending point and naturally draw the line between the points. It is a beautiful and simple tool probably available only in Rebelle.

You can paint the straight lines also with the new Ruler tool. You can lock the control points if you don’t wish to move the ruler, or paint with a freehand, so the lines will not be so strict and artificial when painting.

The new Perspective tool will act as an assistant for drawing perspectives. You will be able to select from one point, two or three-point perspective. You can lock vanishing control points, lock the horizon or also paint with a freehand.

‘Reference Image’ panel

The ‘Reference image’ panel was one of the most demanded features from Rebelle users. This panel will serve as a visual guide while you paint. You will be able to place the panel anywhere on the screen, docked or floating, and open a reference image, sketch or photo into it. You can Zoom in/out the image or desaturate the image with the ‘Greyscale’ button.


‘Preview’ panel

In addition, Rebelle 3 will feature another new panel which is very useful for all artists no matter their style. 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. This panel can be set to fullscreen mode and placed on a secondary monitor, so you have a nice large preview of your painting.


‘Canvas Size’ tool

Another great news is the implementation of ‘Canvas Size’ - a new tool that will serve for cropping, scaling and resizing your work. Resize the canvas interactively by using the control points, or by entering the desired size of a new canvas in the edit-boxes. You will be also able to resize the image and change its DPI. When cropping a paper with the deckled edges, the newly created canvas edges will nicely adjust so you don’t lose the edges on any side.
