Natural painting for Linux
As a aspiring artist I am interested in programs such as Corel Painter and RightHemisphere's Deep Paint which, along with a graphics tablet, allows me to practice without the mess and the smells! Unfortunately, I cannot find any programs that uses the 'virtual natural media' method with half the sophistication of Painter or Deep Paint.
As a Linux advocate (a Kubuntu user) I tried to find something that would satisfy my artist's urges. Although I found a couple of programs that offered a couple of features or promising projects that were left abandoned, I could not find what I needed
I have tried installing Painter and Deep Paint with Wine but with no success. I have installed ArtRage - a freeware windows program that runs very well under Wine but it does not have the full feature set that Painter offers.
Does anybody know of such a program for Linux? Or even if a program is in the early stages?
