Pen-based sketching software

Corel® Painter™ Sketch Pad is your first step in creating digital art. Designed to leverage the natural flow of a drawing tablet, Sketch Pad helps you sketch, organize and share your creative ideas.

  • Sketch-friendly interface helps you focus on your designs
  • Temporal palettes fade from view when you don't need them
    *Essential sketching tools reproduce the look of traditional media (pens, chalk, pencils, markers etc.)
  • Color builds with each layered stroke of the Marker tool, like real-life shading
  • Pen and drawing tablet (recommended) let you control shading and vary stroke width by angling your pen on the tablet
  • Support for industry- standard file formats, such as Corel Painter RIFF, Adobe® Photoshop® PSD, JPEG, PNG and TIFF

A very good idea but this early version (april 2009 as I write those lines) suffers from a number of annoying bugs (in the layers fusion modes).
The idea of having a virtual sketch pad is nicely done though. You can create as many pads as you want. You can choose the paper texture, size and color. Wacom pen pressure and eraser well implemented.
I'll wait for a more mature version before buying.
