Testing SpeedyPainter on Microsoft Surface Pro 2017. Finally I was able to fix pressure sensitivity issues with windows ink technology (previous versions of SpeedyPainter detected pressure only on tablets using Wacom technology). A new release will be available soon .
SpeedyPainter feature preview: “lineart fill optimization”.
This feature will be added in next release of SpeedyPainter.
Bucket fill tool has now a “lineart optimization” flag, that removes annoying artifacts that appear when we try to fill a lineart with the bucket fill tool.
I hope this feature can be useful!
Here follows a comparison image where I used both fill tool methods, old one with lineart optimization OFF, and the new method:
Simple demonstration that shows how easily you can create semi-realistic landscapes using brush color dynamics, available in new version v3.5.2 of SpeedyPainter.
Demo of a new color dynamics feature, that will be added in the next release of SpeedyPainter.
A new experimental Beta version of SpeedyPainter that simulates brush elevation is finally available for download! (from the official download page:
This version can also be used to generate simple normal maps to simulate the roughness of surfaces of 3d meshes.
In this video you can see how you can create some simple normal maps with SpeedyPainter and later import them into a 3D game engine like Unity.
Video recorded during the drawing (part 1):

Introducing brush presets in SpeedyPainter v3.4.11
now user can save his most used brush settings into brush presets, and reload them in order to easily switch from one brush configuration to another.
Video of the drawing process:
The results seems quite nice, but the new brushStroke algorithm is still not compatible with all the other functionalities available in SpeedyPainter (as levels, or some of the tools). Maybe I will release a separate beta version of SpeedyPainter with this new feature, separated from the official version, to let other people try this new feature.
Simple test of a new ‘work in progress’ feature I’m planning to add on SpeedyPainter: the possibility to create simple frame-by-frame animations. The feature is still in its early stages, quite experimental for now, I hope to provide more updates soon 🙂
