How do I learn to use Corel Painter 2017?

Where can I go to learn this? Since I'm a beginner at this, I especially want to learn how to use the whole interface right now, and then basic painting techniques.

Re: How do I learn to use Corel Painter 2017?

Welcome to the forum, you've come to the right place to get some help.

Is there a particular reason you need to use Painter? IMHO, Corel Painter is one of the more complicated of the digital painting programs. There are many tutorials online, a videos on Youtube, and folks here who use the program that will be happy to answer questions.

Personally, I found it really overwhelming a few years ago and switched. I'm not trying to discourage you, it's a great program, but if you find the learning curve steep, be assured that there are other options.

A while back we had a survey thread on what programs people are using and why. I can't find it, so I guess it's time for a new one.

Re: How do I learn to use Corel Painter 2017?

I learned how to use it through several resources.

Corel: http://learn.corel.com/painting-tuto...017-tutorials/

YouTube - you can learn a lot about technique from previous versions. The upgrades seem to be focusing a lot more on special brushes than anything else. https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...l+painter+2017

Lynda.com - I can get free access to all the tutorials through my online library account. You might want to check your local library.

It is a powerful program but not very intuitive. A lot of illustrators use it along with Photoshop since you can go back and forth. Many of the mass market tutorials just teach you how to clone or touch up photos with it. Learning to actually do quality digital painting takes a lot more effort.
