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.

~ Craig Mullins, Digital Painter, and leading Concept Artist ~

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.

~ Georg Ireland, digital painter ~

The new Metallic brushes are an absolute game-changer, unlocking endless creative possibilities for you to explore!

~ Karen Bonaker, digital painting educator ~

The new Art Surfaces and Structures are outstanding in emulating traditional painting and are a joy to use, especially for landscape painting.

~ Carles Carbonell Bernado, 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.

~ Angela Tribbeck, 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.

~ Ivan Seelnon, illustrator ~

The new Rulers and Paths open a wide array of options for accurate or technical drawing in Rebelle.

~ Carles Carbonell Bernado, illustrator ~

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.

~ Janie, painter ~

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.

~ Karen Bonaker, digital painting educator ~

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.

~ Pete Smith (Basement Picasso), traditional and digital artist ~

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.

~ Tom Gallovich, photographer and digital painting instructor ~

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.

~ Odessa Sawyer, illustrator ~

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.

~ Rob Salkowitz, painter and educator ~

I have never used more advanced software for real-media mimicking than Rebelle. People were surprised to find out my art was digital.

~ Kuzayova, Illustrator ~

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.

~ Simon Lovell, Illustrator and Designer ~

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.

~ Nick Sorbin, Renderosity Magazine ~

Rebelle is an excellent, affordable program replicating traditional painting techniques with absolute authenticity.

~ ImagineFX ~

Rebelle claims to provide a true-to-life painting experience, and it doesn't disappoint.

~ ~

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.

~ Appleinsider ~

Being a traditional artist that loves to play with fluid paints, Rebelle is one of the coolest things to have in your digital arsenal!

~ Barbara Din, Renderosity Magazine ~

Rebelle oils are magnificent. Stunning! They offer an exquisite example of “technology so advanced it appears to be magic”.

~ Matthew Stern, Traditional and Digital artist ~
