I stumbled upon this program thu artists blogs, tried it and bought it six hours later. I am adept at photoshop and illustrator but always seemed to struggle with painter. With that said, I love this program so far!! So easy to use and little learning curve. I just can't wait to keep trying new things with it. So far my only concern is that you have to pick a file size in pixels rather than in inches (hey! That's what I'm used to.), lack of a blending brush (but so far noticed that I can just lower the loading on the oil brush or use the palette knife too.) and that the files are only saved at 72dpi. Would really love that last one to be pumped up to at least 300.
Here is my first practice painting.
