ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

Gaea Early Access Available
26 February, 2018

Gaea Early Access is finally available! The new standalone terrain creation suite brings pioneering methods for fast prototyping, artistic control, and realistic results. The tool is said to combine the power of procedural construction with the intuitive methods of sculpting, and offers new cohesive workflows.

Here are some details on the tool from QuadSpinner:

Forces of Nature

Gaea catapults erosion into a new stratosphere of what’s achievable, far beyond the limiting processes and vertical lines that have genericized industry terrains.

This new platform delivers a natural randomness, which is key to believable environments. It also removes the frequent bottleneck of the erosion process. By placing different components of erosion at different stages of a graph, and at multiple junctions, you can create highly realistic and unique terrains.

Directed Erosion

Gaea has elevated erosion to an art form. Uniting the best of sculpting and procedural design, Directed Erosion lets the artist direct how and where erosion occurs.

Physics-assisted tools enable you to sculpt erosion strategically and iteratively. Separate erosive flows automatically interact with each other. Feel your way visually through the process rather than wait for a uniform output.

Hydraulic Erosion

Gaea’s hydraulic erosion is one of the most advanced algorithms ever created for artistic visualization. It avoids the pitfalls of common erosion algorithms found in terrain software, and raises the bar for CG erosion.

The scale of the erosion is exposed, so you can arbitrarily erode a terrain as 2km or 20km. Controlling the scale opens up new avenues of erosion which can help you achieve a distinctive look. Other features include vertical erosion (downcutting), river generation, and much more.


Gaea separates the essential processes of Sediments, Channels, and Debris for maximum control of your erosion elements. You can erode your terrain in specific ways without cannibalizing the other components.

Carve channels from thin grooves to wide canyons, without affecting sediment deposits. You can also nest channels within channels by using different widths.

Gaea’s Debris node lets you add rocks and even rockslides using Physics-assisted scattering. The debris can be produced as data-only masks and as point clouds which can be used to drive scattering in other applications.

Data Maps

Data maps (Deposits, Wetness, Velocity, Flow) often present bottlenecks in the graph. Gaea decouples data maps from erosion delivering the freedom to create textures and effects without destroying your terrain. You can also generate data maps anywhere in your workflow.

The Biome map uses rainfall, temperature, moisture, and altitude to produce a splat-style supermask for different ecosystems – taiga, swamps, grasslands, and more. Easily export the Biome map as a splat map, or individually export each biome mask. These masks work well with Gaea’s other coloration nodes for sophisticated color maps of the entire terrain.

Strata + Talus

These vital erosion properties are among the most overlooked aspects of arid terrains in CG. Gaea changes that. Now you can create non-uniform stratification with plate-breakage, terrain folding, and rifts just like in nature.

Realistic sediment accumulation – or talus – can also be easily generated, with expanded options to exaggerate the build-up for increased dramatic effect.

I’m also curious to know how early access it is. Loved Geoglyph but I’m ready to jump ships now…


Hey there, awesome stuff. Not sure if you Dax or someone else from Quadspinner will read this but I will still ask some questions: – Will the variety of nodes be similar to World Machine? WM offers a lot of cool utility stuff for coloring, simple math etc. will Gaea offer similar or even more? – I think in WM the layout node is incredibly powerful, will Gaea have that? – Will the realtime preview support more than 2k terrains as stated on the website? I think world creator supports realtime preview up to 8k at the moment. – In… Read more »


Awesome! This is the real thing! Not only this software is able to generate awesome terrains, but the design taking the best of layers and graph workflows is the perfect way to approach things imo. I am eager to try it and see how it evolves over time, this is the terrain modeling software I’ve been waiting for long, and this with a very reasonable pricing…
