Many of us have been in some state of lockdown, quarantine, stay-at-home, pause, socially distant, or whatever you want to call it for months now. It would be unsurprising if you were starting to really, actually, truly get bored (and you thought it was bad on, like, April 3rd!). And if you’ve been using your extra time to work on a creative hobby or even if you’re an artist for a living, you might be feeling pretty stuck after constantly trying to keep your brain engaged. But whatever creative rut you’re in is about to implode because of this seriously dope award-winning painting software.

Consider Flame Painter 4—ImagineFX Artist’s Choice—your muse for sparking new ideas and bringing new energy to your craft. Both incredibly customizable and innovative, this CNET Five Star Award holder offers state-of-the-art technology and industry-first features that merely begin with its life-like particle brushes. 

The Particle Systems found within Flame Painter are groundbreaking, opening a whole world of possibilities, nowhere to be found in other software. Bring your artwork to life with an unlimited spectrum of brush styles, ranging from classic light effects to structured patterns, textured shapes, and organic multi-brushes. The amount of variety you’ll get in just a single stroke may even leave you confused. “Wait—I don’t have to draw the individual elements each time??” Tis true, dear reader. And you can actually customize to change how brushes look and act: behavior, shape, texture, and gradient are in your control.

The photorealistic effects are cool as heck, but they get better when you realize you can use vector layers to modify already-painted strokes and otherwise perfect your work. For more fun with vectors, Flame Painter has SVG import so you can convert formats and then blast your art with the particle brushes to create whatever wild styles tickle your fancy.

This must-have tool is perfect for hobbyists and CG art pros alike, not to mention photographers and graphic artists. Join the over 8,000 people who’ve downloaded this program on Softpedia—but unlike them, you’ll get a lifetime subscription of Flame Painter 4 at 78% off while it’s on sale for just $19.
