Monday, March 25, 2019 Artweaver Portable, Unleash your creativity on the artist way!
"Free yet powerful, Artweaver is an accessible piece of software that makes it easy to get creative." —Bob Thornton, (11 Jan 2019)
"Artweaver Free designed for artists of all ages, but we’ve found it particularly useful for children. Kids love experimenting with all the different brushes, and we love not having to clean up any mess afterwards." —Catherine Ellis, (December 23, 2018)
"The free version of Artweaver is something I tried years ago and I thought it was ok. It has brushes like Photoshop and blendy brushes like Corel Painter. The only reason I haven’t used it is because I’ve already got Photoshop and Corel Painter. The interface is a mix of Photoshop and Painter and it has similar brushes." —Christine Garner, (Aug 20, 2017)
Artweaver is a full-featured painting tool with a huge set of predefined realistic brushes to paint creatively or just experiment. Artweaver is suitable for beginners and advanced users.

Portability Notes

  • Artweaver has portable mode, but it's [still] buggy and can't store most of the settings. You can try this 100% portable release edition if you like.
  • Our portable release still stores settings in Windows registry and data folders while running—but it can retain its settings on next runs.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
