Mischief 2.0: very promising drawing software ($25 !!)
« on: December 03, 2014, 09:51:12 AM »

There's this new player in the art software category.  I just installed it, it is really amazing.  It's fast, as in drawing the strokes on a tablet with a stylus is much more responsive with this program vs. photoshop, clip studio (which is what I currently use).  And it has this "infinite zoom" feature, which is essentially vector graphics for a program like photoshop.  So it combines features of Illustrator, photoshop into one program, which is what the clip studio tries to do a little also.  What makes mischief stand out is the touch-friendly interface...very simple layout (you don't have to hide/unhide the sidebars all the time, or get those artdocks), and it supports multi-touch gestures.

I really like the idea of zooming in and out and not getting any pixelation.  Also, a unique feature...the brush size doesn't get smaller/larger as you zoom out or in.  it stays the same size.  Why is that cool?  Let's say I drew a tiny tiny circle...now I can zoom way into the circle and draw yet another tiny circle inside it without changing the brush size and the thicknesses are relative to the zoom.

Looks interesting. Now if I can just remember what I did with my Wacom pad, I might give it a spin - assuming it works with a 5-year old drawing tablet

Oops! Scratch that. I just remembered, I already gave it away. :-[

you gave it away?!  You are a very generous individual!  ;D

I'm going to try using this program as my general notepad...i.e. replace onenote.  I've already been doing so with photoshop canvases, but that's a little overkill.

Tried it a while ago but I already have Artrage and it seems to do pretty much the same:

I think to many software companies are reinventing the wheel, it's a waste of time and resources IMO.

Curious: is Artrage also vector based?
