Fantasia Painter 1.9 looks like a great free painting app for Windows Phone 7. The developer has just informed us Fantasia Painter 1.9, has been released with 20 new effects, distortion tools and “alive” brushes. Unlike other painting tools Fantasia has 12 unique brushes (e.g. Fur, Rainbow or Makeup) that adapt to your painting style, speed, direction and nearby colors to make even simple strokes look professional. Powerful effects, like Mold, help you enlarge muscles, change face, body shape, and more. All effects can be “painted” to part of image, so you can create works of art that are uniquely your own. Full Press release below
Fantasia combines multiple effects into one to save you time. For example, Bright/Contr/Sat/Expo is a single effect and is typically equivalent to three effects in other tools. Other effects, like Lifelike Colors are composed of several image enhancement steps. I looked at top Photoshop image enhancement tutorials online, got the best of them and put it in the “Lifelike Colors” effect. Instead of spending several minutes in a desktop tool, tap Lifelike Colors and see what happens. With Fantasia Painter you can spend less time wondering “how do I paint this?” and more time expressing yourself and having fun.
