whats your thoughts on the best free and pay drawing program that uses the pen?
To be honest I quite like Fresh Paint which comes as standard... haven't tried any others yet.
Yeah i agree with nuttyone the fresh paint program is good enough for me with limited skills, it probably abit too limited for a artist...
I think I have that for my SP2. I don't think it does layers. Is there anything that has multi-layers for sketching?
I admit I use Freshpaint too, I'm just a casual sketcher though so I don't need layers. I have tried Photoshop CC but found the pen lagged a bit. Corel Painter is supposed to be quite good for a natural media feel, probably better than Photoshop. I like Freshpaint because the oil paints an oil pastels feel really realistic.
I have that on my phone and its pretty good, im going to give it a whirl on my sp4...
Free: Autodesk Sketchbook, Mischief/ MyPaint; Paid: Photoshop (best with bluetooth keyboard), ArtRage, Corel Painter
thanks for the ideas. Once I get my Surface on Monday, I'll try it. UPS is smart, they stopped movement for the weekend just one hop from where I could req a pickup from the UPS store, so I have to wait till Monday.
Oh, I forgot- there's also ArtRage Touch in Windows Store- I think it's paid, but doesn't cost too much. That said, desktop version of ArtRage is already great on Surface, because UI is very well tailored for using with touchscreen
I'm going to take a look at that. I draw to relax really on my surface I find it very therapeutic, I'm on the lookout for other apps. I have PhotoshopCC which I use for photography but it's too much for me for drawing on.
I just downloaded Artrage app.. how many days is the free trial... I think Ill be dead before it expires......there must be some other restriction on the trial...lo.
