Black Ink at Siggraph 2013!
Thank you Steam community!
The new kind of digital painting

At a time when main digital painting solutions give you predefined tools to obtain the most traditional looking result, Black Ink offers the freedom to create and use brushes that you will only see on a computer. Tweak, combine, create new tools and discover the power of generative art!

Infinite possibilities

With Black Ink anyone can create unique custom brushes. Just browse our forums to find and download new tools to add to your collection.

You can easily tweak them yourself and if you’re feeling like an inventor, explore our unique controllers system, create your ultimate brush and share it!

The controllers are a new tool never seen in 2D painting packages before. They open access to the behavior of every brush parameter and give full control to the user. Every parameter can act exactly as you want for an infinite number of combinations. Check the samples included in Black Ink to see how different the results can be, using only the power of the controllers.

Every brush can be used with the other innovative functions of Black Ink like the gradients or the image-based color, for an infinity of different uses. All these combinations unveil the power of generative art, where your computer becomes a complete and unique creative tool and a new inspiration source.

Amazing speed

Black Ink’s unique GPU-based rendering engine enables blazing fast performance on any picture resolution. 10K pictures will become your new standard before you even realize it!

Got it via CheapAssGamer tonight for $22... I'm not an artist in the slightest, but this looks intriguing.

Well I went ahead and bought it, I´m still a long way to mastering the software, but it does open up a world of possibilities, I´m illustrating a book right now and this opened up my eyes trying to mix the best of traditional media and this strange beast you have created, so thanks in advance, oh, and please make those layers available ASP! :)

Yes this first offer has ended and Black Ink’s early access price is evolving with the release of important features. We still have a lot to add to the program and the current price of 24.99€ still secures you a huge discount compared to the final price of Black Ink. Also, your license will grant you every update for free, and once we’re on steam we’ll give steam keys to license owners upon simple demand.
