Corel has this week launched its new Corel Painter 2016 artist application that is now available to purchase priced at $429, with upgrades available from $229 with support languages including English, German, French, Japanese and Chinese.
The new version of Corel Painter 2016 has been designed to provide a complete art studio in one application, say its developers and includes new drawing features such as Audio Expression brushes that react to sound.
As well as including plenty of tutorials for beginners and masters alike to get to grips with the new features as quickly as possible. Other new addition to painter 2016 include Special Media Brushes, Paper And Flow Management, Custom Toolbox and more. Corel explains :
Explore an impressive sensory selection of realistic Natural-Media that perfectly emulates real life art materials and imaginative art materials that can’t be found in the real world. With Painter 2016, you can experience the incomparable harmony of Audio Expression, smart photo cloning, killer composition tools, physics-inspired Particle brushes, and in-app learning—all in high DPI.
Import your Adobe Photoshop brushes into Painter and then use Painter’s brush controls to make a new mega-brush. Share your favorite brushes and media with others using the new Custom Toolbox. Browse additional Brush Packs to discover imaginative custom brushes for your next painting project.
If you are looking for something a little more cost effect, then the awesome range of applications from Affinity that are available for Mac systems and priced around $50 are well worth more investigation.
