    "repeat, same, duplicate..."

    October 14, 2013  |   By RodFive

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 20.01

    Pros

    Not too complicated

    Cons

    3 options of the same choice over and over.

    Summary

    Why bother? There are so many good programs available, why make another that does the same thing?

    "Does the job."

    April 23, 2013  |   By w.shows

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 19.18

    Pros

    Effects not available with other programs.

    Cons

    Learning curve.

    Summary

    It's free. Why not try it.

    "For creative types"

    October 10, 2012  |   By w.shows

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 19.09

    Pros

    Trial version works ok.

    Cons

    None that I've found

    Summary

    Try it. You might find a use for it.

    "OpenCanvas and Paint Tool Sai are Better."

    October 4, 2012  |   By StephieArt

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 19.09

    Pros

    It's better than nothing at all. Better than MS Paint.

    Cons

    The interface is ugly. The 'brushes' while there are a lot of them, do not replicate real media well. I don't know how this program got such good ratings other than perhaps the programer's friends crowdsourced it.

    Summary

    I am a full time artist who uses digital and traditional media as my job. I cannot recommend this program at all. It's clunky and the brushes frankly were very disapointing. Don't bother downloading it.

    If you want a great digital low cost painting program, use Paint Tool Sai. If you need something more like Photoshop try Gimp.

    "The BEST software purchase I have ever made"

    February 15, 2011  |   By Angelheart1239

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 17.27

    Pros

    Can make an artist out of someone who couldn't draw a stick.

    Cons

    None that I have ever encountered

    Summary

    I was a photographer and didn't even know what digital art was.With the help of Ken Carlino's Twisted Brush,I learned to do digital art and since am the proud owner of 4 trophies,2nd and 3rd place for Digital Artist of the Year.

    "Usable right 'out of the box', by expert or newbie!"

    March 18, 2010  |   By Anysia

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 16.19

    Pros

    Tools galore, for the expert and novice alike! Easy to use, fine controls. Links to tutorial videos in the menu bar. Amazingly low price for such a power packed program.

    Cons

    No printed manual, but plenty of help in the "Quick Start", and links to tutorial videos in the menu bar.

    Summary

    Great for graphics table users. Slick and easy to use customizable interface, with a myriad of tools that will keep an expert graphic artist busy and happy, but with tools that the new to graphics tablets or programs will find easy to use.

    And with the Adobe/Paint Shop Pro plugin compatibility, it's even more versatile. From photo editing/manipulation to fine art creation, to cartoons, blob modeling, all is possible with this feature loaded program. The price of this program made me wonder why I spent so much getting Photoshop!

    There are hundreds of brushes to suit every need, sorted for easy locating, and with the brush modifying tools, if you can't find one you want, you can make one of them the way you want and save it by creating your own brush set.

    The Palettes are amazing collections of shades and colors.

    This software also comes with something most don't anymore. Almost instant response to tech problem, and help to solve hardware/software conflicts. Anyone who has ever had a program not work and has been ignored will appreciate this. There is also a good long trial period so you have ample opportunity to put the program through its paces.

    I could go on and on, but the best thing is to download it, and try it. You won't be disappointed.

    Updated on Mar 20, 2010

    Update: I have to disagree with CNET saying you have to have a powerful machine to run this software. I use it on my Acer Aspire One netbook to edit photographs, and create artwork. I might have to make them 2000X1500 max, but at 200 dpi, it can be easily 'embiggened' to a printable size.

    "Easy to learn and use ... even for an amateur artist!"

    March 18, 2010  |   By Saidhbhin_Aisling

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 16.19

    Pros

    TB Pro Studio offers not just a fabulous selection of artist tools, but also the way these tools can be used (for digital dummies like me) Tutorials, FORUMS, brush discussions, advice from fellow members (if asked for) and answers to questions!

    Cons

    The only thing I don't like about TB Pro Studio is that there simply aren't enough hours in the day to experiment with the vast array of brushes, filters, solutions, etc. that TB Pro offers.

    Summary

    I am an disabled and homebound. TB Pro Studio is my lifeline! It allows me to be creative and share my art, and my thoughts with others in the community. It is a very therapeutic tool for anyone seeking a means to express themselves through a positive outlet. It has been relatively easy to get a grasp on the basics, thanks to the great tutorials offered as well as FORUM discussions of brushes, methods, problems, etc. This is my second year with TB Pro and I can't begin to tell you the difference it has personally made in my life. I am not a professional artist and am not looking to sell my art, however, I am looking for a means to keep my mind stimulated and continue to be productive and creative within my own limitations.
    TB Pro is the best product I have come across. There are always ongoing competitions and challenges designed to encourage members to learn new brushes, artsets, skillsets, etc. offered by TB Pro. It is constantly being upgraded and it's great to have exciting and fun tools created specifically for TB Pro.
    It is also wonderful to be part of a community ... a "family" of creative artists who contribute on a regular basis. It allows for a sense of sharing ... both of knowledge, skills, and life experiences that influence our art and creativity.
    TB Pro is the best thing that's happened in my life in a very long time. As I said, it's become my lifeline and I treasure every minute I can spend creating my own art or enjoying the works of others. It's wonderful to watch someones' skills grow and evolve over time ... again, the familiarity of regular contributors allows for this growth and communion.

    "This program covers all aspects of digital art."

    March 18, 2010  |   By indigovenice

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 16.19

    Pros

    It is an easy program to use that runs well.
    It has good support via a Forum, and the program itself is neatly packed with every single tool you will need for Fine Art, Design and Photo editing.

    Cons

    It is an easy program to use that runs well.
    It has good support via a Forum, and the program itself is neatly packed with every single tool you will need for Fine Art, Design and Photo editing.

    Summary

    The brushes are fantastic and well organized in categories for easy location . And even if none of the brushes are quite what you are looking for - then each brush is easily modified via a brush modifying panel.
    Also - the brush adjustments, tool shortcuts and color adjustments can be dragged around the canvas to be positioned anywhere on your canvas and this makes the workspace very convenient.
    The filters are really exceptional and I do most of my photo editing in this program.
    There are many more great features besides this, and all in all having purchased a licence several years ago - I am one very happy customer!

    "Many options"

    August 13, 2008  |   By 2manypoms

    Version: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 15.51

    Pros

    This program has so many options it is hard to know where to start. There over 60 types of brushes alone. It is a lot of fun creating projects

    Cons

    Some of the options are impossible to figure out how to use. I still can't figure out how to use text. Changing colors can be challenging.

    Summary

    I think this program is to difficult for the money. Much to expensive. It the options were easier to use, then I would gladly pay
