My first time to use Corel Painter to draw something. Thanks to the pencil brush tool, it only took about one hour to finish this sketch. And I really miss the Paint Tool SAI on Windows. What I am currently using is Painter 12. To be frank, Painter is the most inconvenient design tool that I’ve used. The keyboard shortcut design is poor, and the tool manipulation is far from good.
Another thing that I learned from this sketch is that Photoshop sucks when handling complex brush painting or natural like painting.
The pen tip of the Intuos 4 feels so loose when you quickly drawing short lines. So I fix the pen tip with some scotch tapes inserting into the pen tip hole. And it really helps. The nice short lines come back again.
The original photo is below. Sorry for having cut off the little creature’s back legs. But I think without the back legs, the puppy looks cuter, as if it is going to fall down in front of you : )
