Corel Painter 11 Tutorial Video
This new Corel Painter 11 Tutorial Video – Training DVD is definitely worth a look. Designed and narrated by professional illustrator and longtime teacher Dwayne Ferguson, the course is a full featured introduction to the unique digital artwork software.
The real selling point of the training is the freedom you get with its format. Although it is structured as a normal course with a beginning, middle and end, lessons are broken down into short videos that address specific topics one by one. This allows you to either watch the tutorials in sequential order or select topics that interest you, providing beginners with a step by step structure that makes intuitive sense but giving more advanced users the flexibility to chart their own path. In addition, every tutorial lesson features playback controls that let you pause, rewind and fast-forward on the micro-level. What this all adds up to is that you learn Painter at your own pace. Busy people love this.
Because the videos come on a CD / DVD package that you keep (or with an unlimited number of views online if you’re a member of the subscriber service), the tutorial can also become a quick reference that you can check any time you have a question while you work. It covers Corel Painter from top to bottom–a full list of topics is on the product site.
Painter 11 Pros: New Brushes and Media Options
The Corel Painter 11 Tutorial Video wouldn’t be nearly so interesting if it weren’t for the program itself. The software designers at Corel have shown that they listen to their professional user base, with a whole host of new features that people have been waiting for. At the heart of the program are its brushes; they allow instant creativity without the tedious set up that other software requires. For the newest version, Painter has added 40 new Natural-Media brushes to the creative arsenal.
The variety means the RealBristle Painting System introduced in Painter X allowing natural brush action and sensitivity has just gotten better. The new brushes available span multiple categories: add pastels, acrylic, colored pencils and even Sharpie-style markers to the list, just for starters. So in addition to the ‘wet’ paint brushes introduced to much celebration in the last version, there are now ‘dry’ and ‘hard’ tools to work with as well.
Where these custom brushes really excel is in combination with a tablet and stylus, especially the newer Wacom units. If you’re using a supported tablet, the tilt of your stylus will affect the width of your lines or strokes onscreen. You can actually adjust your stroke midway through, changing the angle at which you’re holding the the stylus and affecting the line in real time. This is the necessary type of innovation that keeps pushing Painter forward (and ahead of the pack).
In addition to new and exciting features, the Corel Painter 11 Tutorial Video covers everything else a beginner needs to know to get started. With its interactive examples and straightforward advice, you’ll see quick results even where you may have had trouble in the past.
