I heartily endorse this program as well.

It can even batch process files.

My favorite settings are "Expressive Brushstrokes" And "Watercolour"

Thanks. I've been trying (I usually use the GIMP filters).
I'm looking forward to seeing your instructions (will it be a tutorial?) :roll: .

I think this thread should be moved since it doesn't actually contain any Creative Common assets.

i figured.... but there is no other thread that this really fits... and since the thread description is "This section is for people to post assets that people can use in their games." i thought it would be fine

Looks great. Pretty good results even with the presets.

It's kind of like Corel Painter (Essentials) autopaint feature, except that it's free.

I agree this seems to be in the wrong forum. This is for free game assets, I think tools should go to Asset Creation: Art.

Anyone have good options that you can recommend when using this for VNs, I've been using Painting 4 (recursive median filter) to some effect.

This is amazing! I agree with the poster above me, anyone knows what settings would make the result fit into a VN? :D

Thanks for the link! I just download this and it looks pretty nifty. Still playing around with options, if I find one that seems to work really good for VNs I'll post the details. (And if anyone else finds settings they like please post them as well).

I downloaded it, but honestly, I'd say Original is better...
