Join John Derry, one of the original Corel Painter authors, as he shares the creative techniques that will get beginners up and running, and shows old hands the new features that can get a creative vision out of your head and on to your canvas. The course demonstrates how to create projects, use Painter brushes and painting styles, build templates, and work with layers and channels. John also shares pointers on setting up a Wacom tablet to interface with Painter.
Well, here we are at the end of the title. I hope throughout this title I've been able to pepper you with some new ideas and new techniques, and you found out some things about Painter perhaps you didn't know. If you're new to Painter, I hope this is the beginning of a journey for you that will take you down a creative and fruitful path. I want to show you before I leave just some other resources that are available to you to get more Painter information. One is Corel's own web site, they do have a page for Painter, and if you go over, especially to this Resources tab, there's all kinds of information here available to you.
If we scroll down, they have Tutorials available, Product, Help, Tips & Tricks; things you probably didn't know about Painter from various Painter masters. There is a newsletter that you can sign up for, they also have a regular schedule of webinars. Generally, they are free. So if you want to get more information that way, you're certainly able to do it. The Extras tab has some additional content that you can download and add to Painter to even make it more functional, and there's also Training available in various places around the country.
They certify trainers to be able to teach Painter at the highest level and so you might want to visit the Training page for some of that and see if there is anybody in your area that may be of interest to visit. And secondly, I want to go to the PainterFactory. Now, this is another web site sponsored by Corel. It is very good in terms of giving you a lot of information about Painter. The Talk section gives you all kinds of information from various people in the Painter world.
For example, I've got a paint blog on there and several of the other Painter masters do. The Painter Discussion is just basically just a forum where all kinds of Painter related information gets discussed and disseminated. Next up is Digital Art Academy. Now this is an independent web site, but I know the people there and they're very good and it's a very Painter-centric site. They offer courses at very attractive pricing, so you can get all levels of Painter training there.
If you're interested in watercolor, for example, they have excellent watercolor instructors. And they also have the Painter Talk forum which, in some cases, is actually a place where you can go ask a question and get an answer quicker than you'll even get over the PainterFactory. You go in, ask a question and before you know it, you'll be getting several answers and help on how to overcome an issue that you may be having. Finally, I'd be remiss in my duties if I didn't mention lynda.com. Lynda.com has several Painter titles on here that you are welcome to explore and check out.
Some of these are older titles, but even though they may not be talking about the latest, greatest version of Painter, there's still a lot of important information in there that hasn't changed. And if you're subscribing to lynda.com, you might as well take the time to at least go through those titles and you may find some nuggets of information from Painter 10 or Painter 11 that you didn't hear about in the Painter 12 title. I hope you had a great time, I know I did and I will see you next time around.
