Pixarra was founded with the idea of giving high quality software tools to the artist that are easy and fun to use. Over the years artist software has become more and more complex and has lost much of the creative freedom of laying color down on the paper or canvas. It is our goal to offer tools that give artists the ability to capture ideas quickly without spending hours or days studying a reference manual. Stated another way our motto is "Simplicity Without Sacrifice"
