New thick paint system mimics the look of traditional impasto. One key addition to Painter 2018 18.0 is the new thick paint system, shown in the video above, which mimics the look of traditional impasto painting. Thanks to a range of brushes and palette knives that accompany Thick Paint, you can blend, build up, push, pull and scrape the paint just like you would on a canvas. The pressure of the stylus accurately imitates your tool of choice and allows you to create ridges of paint that pop thanks to shadows in the canyons of the stroke.
Corel Painter 2018 Digital Painting Program
The system gives a realistic 3D look to the surface of an image, with users able to work with the bristle brushes or palette knife tools to pile up paint or scrape it back to expose the underlying paper texture. Surface lighting can be adjusted via a range of sliders and a ZBrush-style spherical gizmo, enabling you to control the self-shadowing on the brush strokes. The lighting can be adjusted on either a global or per-stroke basis, which creates a range of effects.
The new Selection Brush tool lets you use brushstrokes to select areas that you want to paint inside (or outside) of. You can use a stamp-based brush for this or use one from the new Selection category of brushes. To make telling what you’ve selected from what you haven’t, Painter can put a coloured overlay over the selected area. And there are fine-tuning controls too.
Other new features include a texture-synthesis system, which generates a seamless tiling texture of a size of your choosing based on a selection of a source image. Options for adjusting the scale of the texture details are limited, which results in very visible repeats when compared to tools intended for 3D work, but it’s really there to generate source textures to paint from.
