Pixel Painting

Most imaging programs have some kind of paintbrush, which is usually bitmapped. The most basic is a tool that paints color lines of various widths. More sophisticated ones can emulate natural media, such as watercolor, oils, charcoal, and textured canvases. The most advanced brushes are pressure sensitive (see the Tip discussing pressure-sensitive tablets) and fully customizable according to a whole range of criteria, such as the texture, number of bristles and how close together they are, amount of paint splatter, the shape of the brush tip, and so on. And the very best are the tools in Corel Painter, which is, hands-down, the top digital painting program.(See Figure 18-7.)
