A new category in Painter 11 is the Markers category. Now Painter hasn't had felt pens since version 1, but there has always been a little bit of -- well, shall we say talk behind the back about well it doesn't really quite work the way I want a marker to work. And so with Painter 11, they have really come up with a very solid solution to Markers and you still have the old felt pens if you want them as well. But I'm just going to do a little kind of drawing here. And one of the things that you will see is unlike the old Markers, well, when I draw in here, nothing changes.
So once you have drawn in an area, it will not change until you draw over it again. So build up happens only upon a new stroke rather than the old way where even when you went back on the same stroke, it would start to build up. A lot of people prefer this and some people think that this is a Photoshop approach to laying down color where it will not change until you have applied a new stroke to it and that works here as well. So if I start to take colors, or you can see I start to build up a green and get a little darker over to this cyan that I have laid down.
So the idea behind the Markers is that you have really got now a category that works very much like the traditional sort of Marker. So if you are more into kind of doing quick Marker comps or something that you want to have a very faithful look to Markers, you can do it and there are several categories here, so you can get kind of a sharp marker if you want to have a little bit more that look, but once again, they work the same way. They will pretty much stay the same color until you go back over them. So you have got this really nice feel that it was just something you really couldn't do before and I think for people who have been longing for what they felt was a more appropriate version of Markers, you are going to find them here in surprisingly, the new Marker category.
