Digital art is an extremely advancing market and almost all the current digital artists are trying to push their limits to become pros at what they do.
In order to do this it’s not enough to only become better at your drawing skills but also involves learning one of the pro-level software which can help digitise the paintings and sketches.
We had previously provided a list of the top software for a digital artist, but these three presented below are the absolute high level ones. Keep in mind that if you are going to get one of these without having used basic ones, there would be a lot of confusion since this software hold a large number of options and features.
What makes CorelDraw special amongst other software is that its design is primarily focused on working with vector graphics. This makes it a great tool for digitising illustrations and using them in other media such as a poster. One of its latest tools the ‘LiveSketch’ is a feature that allows people to use the vectors of their illustrations in a manner which is the closest to drawing with a pencil on a paper.
The latest edition even has an AI feature which picks up on your drawing and brush styles to reproduce them later which really eases out the editing process. Moreover, if you aim to be a professional at digital art CorelDraw is the software you should start learning. Only downside being that this software is not available directly for the MacOS.
We clearly prefer a digital art software to be based on vector graphics, since our number two is again a digital art software with vector graphics in its core. Another great feature of Adobe Illustrator is that unlike CorelDraw it can be used in a tablet, which is the new favourite tool of all digital artists.
It is also a software which is rather easy to learn and has quite a few tutorials available online. Adobe Illustrator also comes with a 7-day free tutorial so that you can get to know its exact features before buying it.
While Photoshop is not a software originally intended for the purpose of digitising art, it is definitely one that can serve the professional needs. For quite a while now artists have been using Photoshop as the plugin to their tablets and sketch pads.
The reason for this is the fact that Photoshop has a huge array of options available to it using which one can digitise their paintings and illustrations, and it also has a cloud saving service which can turn out to be immensely useful.
So, if you are heading down the direction of digital art pick one of these three and try to learn all the tips and tricks available. And if you are also having a tough time figuring out which digital art table to buy, we have an article for you here.
