Many people (and really I mean many) use Photoshop or GIMP, the closest open source equivalent program, for "paint-for-scratch" work even though they're really not suited for this job. This is because almost all specialized programs (included the famous Corel Painter) fail in so many aspects of raster image processing/editing that their advantages in artistic use are quickly overshadowed by them. GIMP may be headed to other directions, but I believe there is a strong demand for such features which cannot be ignored, as demonstrated for example by this mixing brush source code patch I linked in my previous post or Ramon Miranda's Gimp Paint Studio resource collection. Perhaps a more advanced brush engine in the future can overcome the current limitations without expressly introducing digital-artist-only features? Not really a question, just a hope. -- SHIRAKAWA Akira _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
