program similar to Painter?


Hi all

I mostly use Photoshop for which Gimp is an OK replacement . But, I also like to draw in Painter (from Corel) and I can't seem to find anything like that for Linux. So, does anyone know any programs like that?

I think you missunderstood me. Painter is a program that lets you draw/paint as you would on a real paper/canvas, with brushes/pencils that emulate the real life stuff. So, when you paint with oil colours it actually looks like that. Anyway i'm really bad at explaining, but i'm sure that if you do a Corel Painter search you'll see what I mean.

I see. No in this case OO Draw won't suit you. It's more like Freehand

But you could always use Wine to run Windows applications

OK, will try that. Thanks

And if anyone remembers any such program running in Linux I'm still all ears

Thanks for the suggestion. It looks interesting ... now I just need to figure out how to install it - dependencies upon dependencies upon dependencies - may take a while
