Corel Painter IX Tutorial


Corel® Painter IX is a natural media emulation tool. It allows users to create digital images and artwork that appear to be created with traditional sketch and painting tools. Painter IX has over 400 brushes and 30 mediums to work with. The user can also create their own brushes. Experiment with life-like media such as Digital Water Color and Oils or create sketches from photographs. It's no wonder Painter is considered to be "the ultimate digital sketching tool".
