The first software in the world with real physical color mixing based on traditional pigments.
Slovakia, December 16th, 2021 – Can digital painting meet the standards and greatness of a traditional masterpiece? We believe with a new Rebelle 5 it gets closer than ever. The award-winning painting software is the first in the world to implement a state-of-the-art color mixing based on traditional pigments. Newly implemented features like NanoPixel technology, watercolor granulation, mixing palette, full-color papers will take the digital painting experience to a whole new level.
Escape Motions delights in creating tools for artists to help them express their ideas. No artist should miss the latest release of Rebelle 5, innovative painting software awarded all across the globe.
The new version comes in two editions – Rebelle 5 and Rebelle 5 Pro. The Pro edition opens the door to state-of-the-art color mixing based on real-world pigments. Painting with Cadmium Yellow, Alizarin Crimson, Prussian Blue, and other traditional pigments feels so natural that you will never turn back to digital RGB color mixing. The best is that artists can still work in a full RGB color gamut, and import any image into the painting. Rebelle is the first software in the world to implement traditional pigment mixing into the painting process. Color mixing is based on Mixbox, developed by Secret Weapons in cooperation with Escape Motions.
The new NanoPixel technology allows to macro-zoom into the canvas to see infinite features of the painting in real-time. In-house developed machine-learning algorithms can enlarge the painting, sharpen the edges of the paint strokes and make the artwork much more precise down to a ‘nanopixel'. Export 16x larger artworks with sharp details, or rescale your old painting from A4 to A0 and print it with a detail never seen before.
The simultaneous work between Rebelle and Photoshop becomes easier with a new Photoshop plugin, allowing a seamless connection between the two programs.
In both editions, digital artists can explore the hyper-realistic oils, acrylics, and watercolors, which made Rebelle stand out. The new version introduces Express Oils, an easy-to-use tool for concept art, sketching and designing. Revised Oils and Acrylics, aim to make the impasto more controllable. The artwork will stand out using new multicolored and dirty brushes. Watercolorists will be pleased with the new granulation effects, or possibilities to adjust the diffusion speed and wetness of the layer. The powerful Brush Creator is enhanced by the curve editor and the new Volume Presets panel will help customize the brushes in an even more intuitive way.
Those who enjoy creating video content will surely appreciate the newly implemented time-lapse recording options.
Rebelle 5 also comes with exciting Color Set improvements, a mixing palette, multiple reference images, inverted masking, and more.
In addition to hyper-realistic painting tools and more than 190 brush presets, Escape Motions offers ultra-realistic papers, canvases, and lithography stones, which allow artists to experiment with different backgrounds and enhance the traditional feel in the digital world. In cooperation with academic professionals, Rebelle 5 introduces full-color papers and canvases, providing more detail and diversity.
The initial version of Rebelle has been introduced in May 2015. Since then the software has become a sought-after paint tool dedicated to creating realistic wet and dry media artwork. Using real-world color blending, wet diffusion, and drying, it convincingly mimics the way natural media interacts with the canvas and itself. Designed for both CG artists as well as for traditional painters, this tool is a must-have solution for everyone who wants to explore their artistic skills using digital technology.
