Give Painterly brushes a try for a chance to win $1,000 USD

Greetings CorelDRAW Community,

We’re delighted to announce the new Painterly brushes contest, where you can enter by submitting your Painterly brush artwork and have a chance to win $1,000 USD.

CorelDRAW’s innovative new set of Natural-Media™ and particle brushes replicate the look of traditional art mediums like paint, pastels, and pencils, making them ideal for adding brush effects and realistic textures to vector designs.

Leveraging Corel Painter’s award-winning brush technology, CorelDRAW’s new Painterly Brush tool delivers something that Adobe Illustrator doesn’t, the ability to seamlessly tailor each pixel-based brush stroke to perfection with the vector curve tools you’re used to.

Design something unique to you with CorelDRAW’s pixel-based brushes for a chance to win $1,000 USD.

How to enter:

1. Try CorelDRAW’s Painterly Brush tool for FREE.
2. Add Painterly brush strokes to your existing artwork, or paint from scratch to create something all-new.
3. Upload your creation(s) here by May 29th and we’ll pick a winning design.

It’s that easy!
