Rebelle is a one-of-a-kind real 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. Moreover, its various wet tools - watercolors, acrylics or ink pen can be combined with pastels, pencils or any other dry media tools, in wonderfully intuitive ways. It’s the closest a digital tool has ever come to the flow, spontaneity, and feel of traditional materials. With its unparalleled organic feel, it is a one of the must-have's for every artist’s digital toolbox.
Rebelle is available for Windows and Mac OS for $59.99 from May 28th 2015 on Escape Motions website. Mac App Store edition will be available soon.

About Escape Motions and Peter Blaškovič
Escape Motions is a digital tools, design and animation company. We experiment with new media, code and interactive art to find a new expression and create innovative visual tools for artists and designers.
How did it all begin? What’s the story behind Escape Motions?
A few years ago, Peter Blaškovič, a young designer from Slovak Republic, developed 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 it's unique flame brushes allow the artist to easily 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 is specially designed for children and enthusiast artists, and features an intuitive and playful user interface.
In December 2013, we launched a new art program - Amberlight, an equally unique and groundbreaking graphics tool that creates abstract computer-generated images.
We have been working on Rebelle for more than two years to achieve the most realistic painting tools possible. After two months of open beta testing, during which we implemented the most requested features, Rebelle is now ready to bring an unsurpassed watercolor and dry-media experience to digital painting world.
Peter believes that everyone can be an artist and his vision is to motivate 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.
