Corel has introduced the Corel Painter IX Art Pen Brush Pack, a collection of new Corel Painter IX brushes that take advantage of the new Wacom 6D Art Pen to provide a heightened level of realism in digital art. Corel is offering the Corel Painter IX Art Pen Brush Pack to customers as a free download from its site
Built to take advantage of the new Wacom 6D Art Pen, the Corel Painter IX Art Pen Brush Pack gives artists greater control over their brush strokes. When used together with the Wacom 6D Art Pen, these brushes not only respond to the x- and y-axes, tilt, bearing, and remarkable pressure sensitivity that Corel Painter is known for, but also add the extra dimension of barrel rotation, making the digital painting experience more natural.
- Thin Smooth Calligraphy Brush: This brush gives the user the experience of working with a broad and stiff calligraphy pen that enables them to control the thickness of the stroke as they rotate their hand. Designed to behave like a traditional calligraphy pen, the artist is able to roll the nib of the pen, and can move the stroke through a full 360 degree rotation.
- Grainy Calligraphy Brush: This brush emulates a tapered and springy calligraphy pen that enables the artist to control the thickness of the stroke as they rotate their hand. Designed to behave like a traditional calligraphy pen, rotation and pressure work together to create strokes, and the pen can move through a full 360 degree rotation. This pen provides a 'grainy' effect, allowing the texture of the paper or canvas to come through.
- Soft Flat Oils Brush: This brush replicates the feeling and movement of a traditional flat brush with long soft bristles used with oil paint. The individual bristles on this brush respond to the movement of the painter's hand.
- Square Grainy Pastel Brush: This brush captures the experience of using a square piece of hard pastel. Using this brush, artists can control the stroke thickness and character of their pastel stroke with the movement and rotation of their hand. Pressure changes the opacity and the amount of grain from the paper or canvas that shows through. This brush is capable of 360 degree rotation.
- Tapered Gouache Brush: This brush replicates the feeling and movement of a traditional tapered brush with gouache paint. Individual bristles respond to the hand's rotation and pressure.
