Rebelle 7

Unleash your artistry with hyper-realistic painting tools
and groundbreaking technology

WHAT is Rebelle?

Rebelle is the award-winning, hyper-realistic painting software with phenomenal oils, acrylics, watercolors, and other wet and dry media. Paint pigments color mixing, oil thickness, watercolor diffusion, and NanoPixel technology, convincingly mimic the way natural media interact with the canvas and itself.

WHO is it for?

Rebelle is designed for everyone who wants to explore their artistic skills using digital technology, no matter the level of proficiency. Its state-of-the-art tools will certainly change the mind of every digital art non⁠-⁠believer.

WHY was it created?

The unique watercolor simulation was created by artist Peter Blaškovič as one of his experimental drawing projects. The vision is to keep developing  versatile software with the most natural painting tools. Artists can explore all kinds of very realistic painting techniques working with a wide range of media.


Transfer your ideas into digital canvas using traditional painting techniques. Phenomenal oils, acrylics, and watercolors convincingly mimic the way natural media interact with the canvas.


Tell your story in a visually captivating way, using vibrant colors and intricate details. Whether you are an accomplished illustrator or just a student, Rebelle 7 has all the tools you need.

Concept Art

Rebelle is one of the best art programs you'll come across. It offers the most realistic art brushes out of any programs featured here, it is the easiest to navigate, making it fast to learn.
Barbara Din, Renderosity Magazine
Being a traditional artist that loves to play with fluid paints, Rebelle is one of the coolest things to have in your digital arsenal!
Matthew Stern, Traditional and Digital artist
Rebelle oils are magnificent. Stunning! They offer an exquisite example of “technology so advanced it appears to be magic”.
Craig Mullins, Digital Painter
You need to get Rebelle. It is very well designed, and powerful but simple at the same time, quite a feat in software design. The response to different settings is linear and predictable and it behaves as you would expect the paint to behave. It is not just a watercolor simulator, the other tools are equally excellent. Combining them is a joy.
Georg Ireland, Digital painter
As a digital artist, no other software brings me closer to traditional painting techniques as Rebelle does. What impresses me the most about version 7 are the improvements to the paper and art surfaces. It gives the natural feeling of painting on paper texture rather than using an art pen on a glass surface.
Karen Bonaker, Digital painting educator
The new Metallic brushes are an absolute game-changer, unlocking endless creative possibilities for you to explore!
Carles Carbonell Bernado, Illustrator
The new Art Surfaces and Structures are outstanding in emulating traditional painting and are a joy to use, especially for landscape painting.
Angela Tribbeck, Illustrator
Rebelle manages to combine ease of use with powerful tools, making for a relaxing and stress-free painting experience. While the new features in Rebelle 7 are all very exciting, for me the most exciting are the gradients, filter layers, and dual brushes.
Ivan Seelnon, Illustrator
New RGBL sliders are amazing. It's like a built-in personalized color palette for any type of painting. Paths are a secret weapon with the ability to set them up outside the canvas and be able to bring them back in with ease to get some clean lines.
Carles Carbonell Bernado, Illustrator
The new Rulers and Paths open a wide array of options for accurate or technical drawing in Rebelle.
Janie, Painter
I am completely blown away by the metallic colors and their new brushes. I can spend hours playing around and pushing the "layer" of metallic paint on the surface and observing the light illuminating the crests of paint strokes. This only could be a motivation to have the new version.
Karen Bonaker, Digital painting educator
I absolutely adore the new Rebelle 7! It is incredibly user-friendly and packed with mind-blowing features that bring my paintings to life in the most realistic way imaginable.
Peter Smith, Digital Artist
Rebelle 7 continues to push the limits of natural media simulation. It is as real as it gets and with no mess to clean up afterward! The new metallic materials look amazing and the new structures feature will give even more opportunity to make rich and interesting surfaces on which to paint.
Tom Gallovich, Digital painting instructor
No other software can duplicate the spontaneous movement and color mixing the way Rebelle does! The exact same watercolor effects as traditional watercolors with the “Ctrl + Z” digital advantage. This alone makes it a must-have toolbox addition for the professional illustrator.
Odessa Sawyer, Illustrator
I love working with Rebelle 7. I am impressed with the brushes overall in every medium, and it's just really fun to use. It's the best software for getting a true, realistic feeling of traditional painting.
Rob Salkowitz, Painter and educator
With Rebelle, you're not just buying the software that brings you the closest to making traditional art in the digital world, you're also buying Escape Motions' tireless commitment to improving it, version after version, update after update. Rebelle 7 offers the most realistic natural materials yet for drawing and painting.
Kuzayova, Illustrator
I have never used more advanced software for real-media mimicking than Rebelle. People were surprised to find out my art was digital.
Simon Lovell, Illustrator and Designer
I was blown away by the watercolor and paper interactions in Rebelle. There really is no other software that as closely emulates the real world of watercolor.
Nick Sorbin, Renderosity Magazine
None painting software has been as jaw-dropping to see in evolution as Escape Motions' Rebelle. If you want digital art software that provides results as close to real-world painting as possible, Rebelle should be on your radar.
Rebelle is an excellent, affordable program replicating traditional painting techniques with absolute authenticity.,
Rebelle claims to provide a true-to-life painting experience, and it doesn't disappoint.
