HSDA - New paint app with perspective support!
I have released a new 2D painting application. The new thing is built in 3 point perspective support, with straight line and freehand drawing in perspective.
The perspective of the image is defined in the application by rotating a 3d scene:
Once the perspective is defined a 3D cursor is drawn on the image, indicating where the vanishing points are.
To draw a straight line in perspective you simply select one of the vanishing points with a key on the keyboard and draw as usual. By selecting two vanishing points you enter freehand mode and paint in the selected perspective plane.
You can download Harry Storbacka's Digital Artist from http://www.da-gfx.com/. HSDA is "pay what you want" for non-commercial use. For commercial use a licence has to be bought.
To see what else it can do, check out the features page.
Have fun with it! As this thing has just been released, I'm very interested in your opinions about it. All feedback is appreciated!

If I get a chance, I'll be happy to take a look at your app. Sorry if you noticed your post not showing up, as it went into moderation and I approved it.

I have to definitely try it soon enough, kudos for doing this!

Good idea. I played with it a bit, but it doesn't seem to like my Cintiq. I can't get it to paint when I move the app over to the cintiq screen to paint. When I keep the interface on my main monitor, the program allows me to paint but cursor and stroke aren't together - that is, I see the cursor at the bottom of the screen but the stroke is drawn at the top of the screen. And a minor bug I get on my computer which runs Vista 64 bit is the drop down menus are invisible until I wiggle my mouse around the area the menu is supposed to be at. I can then see it, but not until I move my mouse around. I had Corel Painter running in the background so that may have attributed to some of the bugs (wow, painter bugs are contagious, ha, ha). Still, a great idea and a good start - work out those bugs if you can friend. Take care

Regarding the menus, I'd still need to know what graphics card you have (ati or nvidia) and also if you have aero enabled (those transparency effects). Upgrading your graphics card driver might help (it's a longshot, yes) - It's using OpenGL to render the menus, and apparently it fails on the initial render for some reason on your system.

Ah pooey. I don't have OpenGL 3.0 to run it.

For those interested, I have started a sketchbook here on CA.org where you can follow my artistic progress and also stay up to date on what's going on with the software.
