Corel Painter - 30 Day Trial

Hey Champs, I'm testing out this program called Corel Painter and basically it's all legit paints & paint brushes and stuff that real artists use on real paper (oil paints, water colour paints, charcoals & other materials) but they're on the COMPUTER!!!

So here are some experiments I've been busting out, mainly random faces that I scribble up in a couple of minutes.

I really like using "charcoal" because real charcoal freaks me out. The texture of charcoal gives me the creeps, also I get it on my hands then touch my face and walk around all day looking like Oliver Twist.

Charcoal faces.

Random Paint Experiments Faces

I don't even remember what I did with this, I think oil paint & charcoal settings? Breaking ALL the rules right here.

I've been watching a lot of Law & Order SVU lately, so I just so happened to accidentally draw Detective John Munch (as in I wasn't trying to draw him, I was just drawing another silly face like the ones above, and then bam, it's Munch.)
This is Munch really.

This is what I would expect to see from myself in grade 8 art class. This is not progress.
This is something that I'm working on, it's not finished yet (obviously) but I was playing around with colour & line options in the program. I'm still trying to get used to it.

So I've got about 23 days left on my 30 day trial and as much as I think this program is cool and stuff, I don't know if it's $200 worth of cool, especially considering all I do is dick around.
