Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week released its “Learning Corel Painter X3 Tutorial,” an introductory course designed to help beginning users learn all the skills and tools necessary be able to create digital art using this powerful program.
Corel Painter is a raster-based digital art program designed to emulate the appearance and behavior of traditional painting and drawing in a digital environment. While it includes features for adding special effects, it’s signature capabilities allow users to render traditional effects such as watercolor and pencil drawing in a digital environment.
Infinite Skills Learning Corel Painter X3 covers all the essential tools for beginning to create with this dynamic and feature-rich program.
Course author Rhoda Draws, a digital painter for more than 20 years, is one of a few dozen Corel Painter Masters. She has been using Painter for fine art, illustration, portraiture, and caricature, since its first release as Painter 1.0. She is the author of a training series called Digital Painting Fundamentals for Corel Painter.
Following an introductory tour of Painter, including a look at brushes and palettes, Draws begins with the Painter toolbox, introducing the basic toolset, color panels, and basic menu commands.
Draws then continues by covering some more advanced functionality such as cloner brushes and using brush controls, preparing students for a guided project where they create an abstract painting.
Other chapters cover features such as working with the effects menu to alter tones and surfaces, working with text, as well as advanced topics, like using automatic and semi-automatic techniques and working with animation features.
“This is a basics course,” Draws says, “so we will start simple and get more complex as you learn to create stunning artwork in Painter.”
