If you guys don´t know it already, I want to share some news with you.
The Popular paint package Deep Paint (that can even draw with bump-mapping) is now discontinued.
And the nice folks at Right Hemisphere has decided to give everyone
Deep Paint 2 for free as a gift. It can be downloaded at www.download.com
But what´s even nicer - is that they´ve opened a voting to see if people
want to have the sources and first of all see if a lot of people in the
community wants this to happen (kind of like the Blender story) and
it would be a pity not to continue this great program, so run off and
cast your vote now (and of course - download this great program):
Now while it´s sad news that they´re discontinuing this great paint-package
it´s certainly a fantastic gift to give us. Deep paint 2 for free!
No strings attached - no ads …no nothing, just free goodness!
Oh - and an extra note:
Don´t be discouraged if this programs seems incredibly simple,
while it may not be an Photo-Editing suite…it´s kind of like “painter”
It´s basically best for tablet-owners and have heaps of “layered”
features that are discovered while you paint. I´ve been playing
around with it, and already now - I´m 100 % certain that this will
be my no.1 texturing package. I´ve been using the Gimp for a long
time and while the gimp has 200-300 extra features…it´s not as
comfortable and “clean” as Deep Paint 2 is, try it a while and
you will see what I mean. Just the Bump-Mapping drawmode alone
is worth it´s weight in gold.
Well Bellorum - I´ll probably not be the last to post it.
If people haven´t downloaded this program before - it will probably
be their best “free” discovery since Blender (And I ain´t kidding about that)
Well, I’m no moderator, I’m just pointing out that it has been posted before, twice. You could have replied to any of those threads and expressed your opinion. There’s no valid reason to have three different threads, within 2 or three days, on the same subject. Just saying.
You guys ain’t seen nothing yet! I can’t belive how little responce those two previous
posts about DeepPaint 2 beeing released for free got…
If people just start the software up without really trying it out (or testing the nearly-hidden
paintbrush-presets) then it looks almost like MS-Paint %|
It looks so simple that one can’t belive how advanced it really is.
But belive it - this is a HUGE gift, probably the best texturing tool we’ll ever get for free.
