In the past I hadn’t given Corel Painter’s new watercolor brushes much of a chance. Since they’re so much slower than the digital watercolor brushes, I never used them much. But then I decided, eh, why not do a whole illustration with them, see what happens. So, I took a quick sketch that I’d done in Alias Sketch…
…and then just started painting away with the different watercolor brushes. You know what, I like them!
They give you a nice, organic bleed of colors and textures, beyond what the digital watercolor brushes do.
And they look so…..uncomputery! Painter is just the bees knees.
