No, it's not free unfortunately. There are a couple of different versions of it actually, including one for the iphone/ipad which I can't get because I I have an old model of the iphone. sigh..anyways. The only free version is the ArtRage Starter Kit, which gives you limited tools to use. That's the only I have, and it's very nice. All of the tools actually feel like real traditional media, especially the pencil tool.
