The Revolution in Digital Art Continues
Staff Writer By: EscapeMotions Press Release
Escape Motions proudly releases Rebelle 2, the new version of the revolutionary paint software.
Rebelle 2 integrates groundbreaking improvements, watercolor and acrylic brushes got an unprecedented realistic look and together with watercolor masking fluid give an exceptional traditional feel to the digital painting.
Completely new brush engine allows users to create custom brushes - round, flat, bamboo, various wet splatters, sponges and many others. Moreover, Rebelle's various wet tools - watercolors, acrylics or ink pen can be combined with pastels, pencils or any other dry media tools, in wonderfully intuitive ways. New stencils and selection tools together with wet paint diffusion open new creative results yet not possible to achieve in digital art.
This new super charged version comes with full multi-touch support and layered PSD support. All these convenient features are wrapped in an agreeable and easy to use interface with a tiny learning curve.
Rebelle is an award-winning watercolor and acrylic painting program created by Escape Motions. Its watercolor simulation is based on a real-world color mixing, blending, wet-diffusion, and drying. Rebelle convincingly mimics the way natural media interacts with the canvas and itself. Users can paint, smear, re-wet dried colors, blow wet washes across the paper, tilt the paper to create water drops and runs and create countless fantastic watercolor effects.
In the first Rebelle version our main focus was to create the most natural watercolors in the world of digital art. It is a real challenge to simulate watercolor behaviour in a digital form, because it has many nouances and subtle details which makes it so specific. Very important in the creative process is the paper structure which in combination with brush grain and water behaviour creates many beautiful variations. In the second Rebelle version we made watercolors even more creative, but also focused on other tools, especially acrylics which got an extraordinary realistic look.

About Escape Motions and Peter Blaškovič
Escape Motions is a small studio of creatives and coders dedicated to develop innovative visual tools. We love to experiment with interactive art, new media and code to find a new expression and bring new experience for artists and designers who want to stand out from the crowd. This is why our Flame Painter, Amberlight and Rebelle were born.
How did it all begin? What's the story behind Escape Motions?
Peter Blaškovič, a young designer from Slovak Republic, developed in 2009 a painting application within his "I am an artist" experimental project, which became one of the top procedural painting applications in the world. He called it Flame Painter, and its unique particle brushes allow the artist to create original artworks, light effects or unconventional designs. The third version Flame Painter 3 offers many advanced features for CG artists and professionals, whereas Flame Painter for iOS with its intuitive and playful user interface is specially designed for children and enthusiast artists.
An equally unique and innovative Amberlight 2 is perfect tool for all digital artists who love to experiment with beautiful computer generated fractal-like images and animations.
After launching the first version of Rebelle in May 2015, we kept on working on new features for two years to deliver the closest a digital tool has ever come to the flow, spontaneity, and feel of traditional materials - Rebelle 2. After implementing many unique ideas and users' suggested features, Rebelle 2 is now ready to bring an unsurpassed experience to digital painting world. With its unparalleled organic feel, this new-era painting tool is a must-have for every artist's digital toolbox.
Peter believes that everyone can be an artist and his vision is to inspire people to be creative. "Many people think they cannot draw or paint at all. Therefore I want to keep creating tools that encourage and liberate people to express themselves," he says.
