Using Brush Variants

The tools and media types included in Painter Lite were carefully selected to allow the aspiring artist to ease into the digital painting experience. This tutorial will give you an introduction to Painter Lite’s different brush variant options, and teach you how to choose and use the perfect tool to achieve your desired effect.

Mirror and Kaleidoscope Painting

The Kaleidoscope tool lets you create electrifying kaleidoscope effects on canvas using 3-12 mirrored planes. The Mirror Painting tool copies every stroke you make onto the opposite side of your canvas. In this tutorial you will learn about these two new exciting digital painting effects.
