TwistedBrush Pro Studio 25.00 is a program for artists that can be downloaded for free at diakov.net. Equipped with a wide range of drawing tools, from paints to crayons and pencils. The interface of TwistedBrush is not very similar to that of other editors, although it provides all the necessary capabilities: working with the clipboard, zooming and, of course, drawing.
In addition, there is only one drawing tool – brushes, but the quantity (more than 3000 pieces !!!) and the quality of presets for drawing, as well as a variety of customizable shapes and sizes and colors allow a person who is not very gifted with artistic talent to depict only in that few minutes, it may be more accurate and with better quality.
Of course – a professional working in a different editor would probably be drawing for more than an hour. The drawing system itself boils down to the manipulation of various brushes that allow both to draw specific drawing tools: pencils, artist brushes, etc., and to create certain effects, such as: smoke, fire, wind, fog, water, and even create some 3D objects. with futuristic shadows and fractals.
You have the ability to mix oil paints, use a spray gun and draw sketches. Almost anything can be described with this tool. You can also add effects to the image: the number is not so impressive – “only” a few dozen, which is also quite a lot, although in this respect TwistedBrush is certainly inferior to Photoshop and Ulead PhotoImpact.
The difference is that the main goal of the last two programs is image processing, whereas in TwistedBrush the emphasis is on making it simple, even for beginners, but powerful in its capabilities. The program’s page-by-page interface is a bit unusual, but you’ll get used to it very quickly.
