    Painter X Wow! wows even longtime Painter user

    [from NEW YORK WEST Medical Illustration Studio]. ¿¿¿¿¿ This edition -- 'The Painter X Wow! Book' -- of the book series by Cher Threinen-Pendarvis, like its predecessors, is beautifully done, and packed with valuable, accessible information. ¿¿¿¿¿ I am a professional medical illustrator. Illustrations I create in Painter are the backbone of my work -- of my business. I reserve Photoshop for image editing. But for original art that simulates natural media, I don't believe Painter can be beat. ¿¿¿¿¿ One aspect of this book I especially appreciate are the many examples of how different artists have made use of various Corel Painter features. I find these 'case studies' in Threinen-Pendarvis's book to be not only extremely informative, but highly inspiring. ¿¿¿¿¿ As much as I've used Painter [since 1994, Painter v2.0] there is always more to learn. Within five minutes of perusing this new edition of Threinen-Pendarvis's book, I found something basic that I never knew. This new information will allow me to perform a frequently used task quicker and easier than I knew was possible. ¿¿¿¿¿ Now here's something important I think new users of Painter should know. Painter, in my opinion, isn't difficult to learn. That is, it doesn't have a steep 'learning curve.' But what it does have is a steep 'experiential curve.' This is because it has so MANY fabulous features, tools, brushes, and effects. Even after all these years, there are features of Painter I've never explored. But I have a sense, generally, of the features available -- should I need to use them, or wish to explore them. ¿¿¿¿¿ Painter is a rich gold mine of digital graphic tools waiting to be experienced. And Threinen-Pendarvis's 'The Painter X Wow! Book' is a valuable road map to those riches.
