The leading ‘natural media’ painting software Corel Painter 2018 has just been released. New in the 2018 version is:
* Thick paint… “voluminous media to pile up, push around, carve into, scrape, and blend … “work with Palette Knives to achieve unbelievably organic brushstrokes”. Also… “2.5D texture brushes that lift paint off the canvas” for a semi-3D effect on textures. For instance, this robot’s paintwork…
* “Capture and synthesize an area of a texture and reproduce it on a larger scale”, and the Paint Bucket can now “instantly fill your canvas with dramatic texture.” Also “Create clone sources”…
* Painter can also now “slightly rotate the grain in each individual stroke” of the brush, for a touch more more realism up-close or when printing your results at large size.
