Re: sketch program

Then, you may find Akvis Sketch useful, Pavel.
It offers two ways to add color to result drawing.

I do like Akvis Sketch and use it very often, not in watercolor setting, thought. Probably I need to take another look. Still, by my book it would be preferable to have color blended in as a separate layer, this gives more control. On the other hand pure white areas would not be colored, so that calls for yet another layer filled with grey.

Re: sketch program

I meant Color pencil option and Coloration effect in Sketch (not watercolor).
BTW, Coloration effect gives color blending (like adding colors from original "virtual" layer). While Color pencil gives color strokes (and it may lead to empty areas).
Sometimes I use them together - Coloration and Color pencil in Sketch.

thanks for the replies, regarding filter forge how can the filters be free if the program is not.
with filter forge, the main program is the plugin. the filters simply come with that program and only work through the program. in fact, if you ever opened and looked at a filter file, you'd see it is all text. so the main program has to input that text and then more or less interpret it and voila. so, there can basically be an unlimited number of filters in your filter forge program. they simply work together. thus, you buy the program and the filters come with it free. and, even better, this library is all user made and continues to grow and still is all free. so, for the cost of the program you get an ever-growing library. at over 6000 free filters, even at full price of the program, you're paying something like a nickel per filter if you wanted to assign a cost to each filter and nothing to the program.

now, i shld also mention that, being user-made, that nickel per filter also is a nickel per every really, really good filter and a nickel for some of the complete turkeys in there, as well. "they aint all gems, mrs." it's still a pretty damn good value, though.
