    Very nice and clean interface. May bring out the artist in you!

    With Windows version too if you want to hurt yourself.

    This is so cool! I tried it out, and it is a fantastic software! Works outrageously well with the Intuous.3 of Wacom. I'm sure it will work great as well with the Graphire, or, even with a mouse. Best of all, it's free!

    The interface actually looks like that of Alias SketchBook Pro. Since I've been using Alias SketchBook Pro, adapting and learning to use ArtRage was a breeze!

    extreme16199, try downloading it again, and then install the fresh copy. delete the old copy first.

    I think that it is just a 2mb download because it takes advantage of Tiger's Quartz library...pretty neat.
