Über die Software

Black Ink is a new, non-realistic GPU based painting application that, instead of imitating traditional tools, brings new inspirations to every artist.

Forget about pen and paper or watercolor and discover a new, generative and truly computer based way to create. Black Ink’s non realistic tools makes creating original pictures fast and easy, whether you’re an experimented artist or never used a painting program before.

Black Ink gives you the freedom to modify your brushes in any way you want and no real life constraint is going to stop your imagination. You can create the perfect brush, or the most crazy one, and share it with other users for unlimited variations and effects.
Black Ink’s unique and simple node-based system allows to very easily assign behaviors to your brush as well as create limitless advanced setups.

And thanks to Black Ink’s GPU technology you can forget about the pixels and work on high definition documents. Don’t worry about the resolution anymore and just create a 4, 8 or even 10k picture and draw without slowing down on real, full bitmap documents.

Also bisher kann ich sagen, dass ich den Kauf nicht bereue.
Die Oberfläche ist aufgeräumt und sehr minimalistisch gehalten, was aber nicht bedeutet, dass Black Ink nicht eine menge kann!

Kern-Feature von Black Ink ist meiner Meinung nach die Möglichkeit eigene "Brushes" zu erstellen und von anderen Nutzern erstellte Brushes zu importieren. Ich habe es zwar noch nicht hinbekommen, wirklich coole eigene Brushes zu erstellen, weil es nicht auf den ersten Blick selbsterklärend ist, was zu tun ist. Aber mit ein bisschen Einarbeitung sollte auch das kein Problem sein.

Außerdem finde ich das Tool "Farbe an Hintergrund orientieren" total klasse! Man legt ein Foto oder anderes Bild in den HIntergrund und die gewählte Brush ändert die Farbe gemäß dem HIntergrund. So lassen sich im Handumdrehen coole Kunstwerke erschaffen!

Die Pros von Black Ink unterm Strich sind:
+ Innovatives Zeichengefühl (Ganz anders als bei Photoshop und co)
+ Nahezu unbegrenzte Möglichkeiten was Brushes angeht
+ Schon in diesem frühen Entwicklungsstadium gibt es eine sehr hilfsbereite Community
+ Man kann riesige Auflösungen verwenden
+ Kleiner Entwicklern und kein Softwaregigant wie zB Adobe

Kontra: (Noch ist das ganze ja Beta, da tut sich sicher einiges)
- Man fühlt sich etwas verloren, weil einige Hilfen fehlen (Lineale, Hilfen für Perspektiven etc)
- Nur eine kleine Auswahl an bereits mitgeliferten Brushes (Man muss sich also wirklich Zeit nehmen selbst welche zu basteln)
- Einige Crashes und Bugs (Beta)

Ansonsten macht das Programm mega Spaß, Ich bin aber froh noch den günstigeren Preis erwischt zu haben, denn ca 90€ wären mir zu viel gewesen, auch wenn dieses Programm absolut Spaß macht.

Getestet habe ich mit einem Wacom Bamboo, damit funktioniert das Zeichnen in Black Ink wunderbar!

Ich zeichne schon relativ lange mit Black Ink und muss wirklich sagen, dass ich überhaupt nicht bereue es gekauft zu haben. Es ist noch nicht perfekt, aber es kommen in zwar großen abständen gute Updates, die Black Ink sehr benutzerfreundlich machen. Momentan benutze ich nur noch Black Ink zum Zeichnen und kann es nur empfehlen!!

I've had this software for a while, but never could get it to run well. I know it's supposed to still be in beta, but...

Black Ink just doesn't work well on a Cintiq Companion. It has very slow brush tracking and weird jumps in the line. The only solution is to disable precise stylus tracking, which means less smooth lines. It does work a lot better (and way faster) with a capacitive pen, if you don't mind loosing pressure sensitivity, that is. Also, touch support is poor, with very slow pinch to zoom and no panning. Take a look at the latest update for Manga Studio 5EX if you want an example of how pen and touch are supposed to work together.

On a gaming PC with a Cintiq the tracking problems and wobly lines are also present, but at least the performance problems are gone.

At this point I have lost interest in digging deeper onto Black Inks features. There are too many drawing tools out there that do work well, even on a tablet. A shame, really. I do still like the concept. Perhaps I'll take another look once Bleank finishes the software.

Generally avoid if you plan on using Black Ink on a tablet/slate PC. It needs a beefy GPU and is too slow on an Intel HD 4000 (confirmed by the developer). Also be prepared for possible problems drawing on a Wacom Cintiq. Try the demo before buying!

Very nice, simple, and easy-to-use application.
Provides many tools, effects, and brushes.
The pencil lines are realistic since it adjusts its size according to the speed.
