Registration is open until NOV 5th,

Jump in:)


Hi, I posted in the introduction thread but didn’t receive any confirmation that I’m registered. Can I get an email confirmation that I have access to the course? Thanks!



I have been looking into participating in this class as a hope to get back into digital art but have a question. I have no experience using Corel as I have done all my previous work in photoshop and was wondering how hard would it be to learn some of these concepts as a beginner painter and use corel for this course during the time alotted? Or would it be better to just use photoshop since I have experience there? I definitely want to learn from this experience if possible, even if that means learning Corel in the process (which I would like to experience and look into for digital painting).

Thank you!


Please let us know if it’s compulsory to use Corel Painter for the course / competition. I see there’s a 30 day free trial of Corel 2019 in my region, but I’m unsure if I used the free trial at some point in the past already… I’m most accustomed to Clip Studio Paint but it should be fun to pick up a new package as I go along, particularly if the lecture videos will refer to Corel Painter tools and features.


I was wondering the same question, but in the Rules and Details of the course it is written that:

“This course will explore the fundamentals of environment design using Corel Painter. David will be covering topics such as research and reference gathering, sketching, design, composition, lighting, blocking, color, texture, and how Corel Painter allows all these different elements to work together in a full scene, through Painter use cases, workflow, and how it can be used to design excellent environments.”

I suppose it is necessary to use the Corel Painter.


No confirmation email is needed. Once registration is up the forum will be locked so as long as your in your good to go.

It is not mandatory to use Corel. Some of the features will be unique to the app but the lessons will focus on fundamental skill which can be applied to any application. Think of it as design skills more than an intro to software.


Thanks for the clarification. Lecture videos refer to Corel Painter, but you don’t have to use it.


Yep! :slight_smile:
Me too, thanks for the clarification!
