:) Hi

I'm not usually in this section. I have come with a reason though. I am looking to find some good graphic software for my son to get creative with.

He is a computer nut (9 years old) and I believe that it is important for his development that he learn to express his creativity.

I spoke to a digital artist that is very creative and prolific with artwork and he told me that he uses some software called Bryce. He said that he used version 5. I looked via my search engine which usually gives really efficient results and was unable to locate this software.

I looked via my Kazaa lite and they didn't have it either.

Any suggestions?

Id actually recommend Vue 4 over Bryce...it's a little more user friendly and a little less expensive:

A great landscape generation program you may want to try is Terragen. It's free for non-commercial use:

And as far as search engines, try www.google.com
Bryce 5 came up right away.

Hope that helps:)

Before you shell out any cash, you might like to try out some freeware. I saw these suggested in a recent thread on the Sijun Forum.

The Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/downloads.html): This is said to be the freeware equivalent of Photoshop.
Pixia (http://www.ab.wakwak.com/~knight/): The freeware equivalent of Paintshop Pro.
Dogwaffle (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Ridge/7251/cyberop.htm): The freeware equivalent of Painter.
Links to OpenCanvas version 1 (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&safe=off&q=oC11b71): Version 1 is freeware. Version 2 is available for demo or purchase here. (http://www.portalgraphics.net/)

Happy painting!

The Gimp is used big time in Linux. We use that on 80% of our network at home. Very cool program!!! They do have a windows version. Gotta love open source!!!:D
