From custom brushes to custom palettes, Painter lets you import content from others, create your own, or select from built-in artist layouts to suit your workflow needs. Painter provides a personal experience that plays well with Photoshop and runs on Mac and Windows so that you can perfect your artwork in the way you’re used to working.

This groundbreaking new brush category with source-blending technology makes it easy to integrate complex textures into your work. Whether you’re aiming for a look that is more lifelike or one that’s completely futuristic, or you want to make a digital painting look authentically timeworn, Texture Painting offers limitless possibilities.
For concept artists and character designers, perfecting the look and feel of every element of their work is critical. Maybe a face needs just the right weather-beaten complexion, a car needs to look like it was driven to hell and back, or a landscape has to be otherworldly — there’s a Texture brush designed specifically for the task at hand. Texture brushes can yield a range of stunning results. You can easily give grayscale images, photos, or digital paintings a totally new look and feel. You can even take a 2D rendering of a 3D model and add the perfect surface or touch up the texture work with Painter tools..

This new feature gives artists more power to craft and create expressive, unique brushstrokes. Dab Stencils let you change the brushstroke opacity before you paint, basing it on the active paper, flow map or texture. You can fine-tune exactly how much source texture to reveal as you paint and link Dab Stencils to a variety of real-time stylus input factors. And using them with the new Texture Brush variants gives you even greater control over the look and feel of your brushstrokes.

Some of the best Painter developments have been the result of user suggestions. Here’s another one — Glazing Brushes. They let you control the evolution of your painting using velvety, translucent paint transitions just like the Renaissance masters. Glazing Brushes deliver stroke-level opacity, so the paint of each brushstroke is applied independently. The paint that each dab deposits on the canvas builds up smoothly from a minimum to a maximum. This creates a smooth blend between colors, with no unwanted colors where dabs overlap. You’ll really see Glazing Brushes at their best when you fluctuate stylus pressure in a single brushstroke.

In Corel Painter 2017, getting stunning painted backgrounds is easier than ever with the new Interactive Gradient tool. It lets you quickly create and edit a gradient to give paintings a range of depth and lighting variations. If you’re just starting a new document, you can kick-start things by filling the background with a gradient and experimenting with different preset styles. Or if you have an existing sketch or painting, you can apply and tweak a gradient in context of your work with edit nodes. Corel Painter 2017 has a library of gradients to choose from, or you can create your own and save it for reuse.

Gradient Express Painting: When a blank white canvas is blocking your creativity or you need a back-drop for a new concept design, the new Express Paint feature allows to create stunning gradients in a matter of seconds. It allows you to apply a wide
variety of painting styles automatically to any gradient, quickly creating the inspiration you need in virtually any composition.

Having the tools that you need right at your fingertips isn't only important for your productivity, it's critical for your creativity. That's why Corel Painter 2017 introduces Palette Drawers. This new workflow enhancement strikes the perfect balance between uncluttering your workspace and keeping essential tools handy by letting you combine panels, custom palettes in a convenient grouping — for a particular workflow or project — so the controls and settings are just a click away. And when you're not using a Palette Drawer, it collapses, freeing up your work area.

Corel Painter 2017 makes it easier than ever to sample color. Sometimes what appears to be a solid-colored area is actually subtly shaded or dithered, so what you see onscreen isn’t what you get when you sample a single pixel. Now you can get the color that you’re seeing with new Dropper tool options that let you average the colors of pixels in larger sample areas, ranging from 3 × 3 to 101 × 101 pixels. What’s more, you can sample a color from the active layer or from all visible layers.
