So sumi



Yes, I've gone off the deep end--I'm in love with a brush stroke. I got Corel Painter IX.5 a few days ago. So far I've just been watching the training videos and playing with it just a little, but I'm impressed by how much is there. This is a sumi brush--done with a mouse, even, not the tablet. That's one well-programed brush. It's really amazing that they can figure out how the brushes and media interact, convert it all to numbers, and recreate it with the computer. I am going to have such fun with this program.

Looks neat! I've been meaning to take a look at those.

Ohhh, how cool! You know, I have Corel Painter and I opened it up, played with it once, and that was it. Maybe I should take another look. Awesome, Helena!

Hello Helena!

Congrats on getting Painter - My husband bought it for me for last Christmas. I love working with it, and a wacom tablet. I have a laptop, and I belong to a local painter's group and I tote my 'puter with me everywhere. I also LOVE art rage - have you tried that too? The oils are just dreamy there - for a free program its incredible. I also have the paid version (wow, what a whole 20 bucks) that supports layers etc. I hope you will find time to slip over to my blog and see some of the sweet hand painted elements I've been creating this winter for free download. I also have previous paintings featured. Please ask me if you ever have questions... I'm no expert but have some good solid experience and love to share! :) My husband and I have an epson 7800 printer which can print to canvas or fine art paper 24 inches wide and 40 ft long... so I have a LOT of fun.. I often digitally paint, print to canvas then go in with 'real' acrylics for some height!
