Corel Painter X is a powerful natural media painting and illustration software, delivering a next-generation art studio that blurs the line between traditional and digital art like never before. Working closely with photographers and other design professionals, the Painter X team explored the relationship between the artist's hand and the canvas. As a result, Corel Painter X has become the industry standard for digital painting and illustration, with the introduction of unparalleled performance, new composition tools and the revolutionary RealBristle Painting System.
