Corel Painter X Tutorial


Corel® Painter X 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 X 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". Join Painter Professional - Dwayne Ferguson as he teaches this award winning program. Work Files are included. To begin learning today, click on a movie topic below
