The latest Corel Painter is out now, and there are many reasons why it's the best yet...
Corel may have called their 13th version of Painter 'X3' to avoid superstitious connotations, but they haven't shirked the task of ramping up their latest model.
We're working on our full review of the software, out in issue 100, looking at all its new, useful features and upgrades it has to offer. We can confirm that it's their best yet!
But don't take our word for it. Here are 13 reasons to check out Painter X3 straight from the artists that use it. From Android Jones to Dwayne Vance...
1) Android Jones and Perspective Guides
"This is an incredible day for digital artists. No longer are any of us burdened by the frustration of perspective lines. Corel Painter X3 has finally put your creativity into perspective."
2) Chris Price talks F-X Distorto
"You can take a regular painting you've done with any brush, and transform it into a watercolor painting with diffusion.""
3) Mike Thompson works with Thick Wet Paint
"From someone who came from a background with Photoshop, my mind was blown. Painter is my weapon of choice now. I use it every day."
4) Painter X3's New Brush Search Engine
Here's another new feature in the all new Painter X3.
5) Mixed Media Capabilities through Cher Pendarvis's eyes
"With Painter I can create paintings and mixed media works that would not be possible with traditional art tools or other computer applications."
6) Painter X3's Realistic Pencils and Pens
"The brushes feel real and natural in Painter versus other programs I've used. They're very sensitive to the touch and they operate just like I'm using a real pencil."
