I downloaded a 30 day free trial of Corel Painter 12 to play with during my mid-year break. I’ve never used it before, and have only started playing with digital painting in Photoshop this year, so it’s all new to me, but… WOW! This is definitely the painters digital software, totally different to Photoshop, which is not really like painting at all. This is like painting… not exactly, but close. I have chosen the very lovely Rachael from BladeRunner for my first try at this. This is where she’s at at the moment, after a few hours work. I have no idea how any of this works, it’s similar to Photoshop but different enough to be annoying… it’s a learning curve! Yay, fun and challenging, that’s gotta be good for me!
