Black Ink 0.225.1998

The Version 0.225.1998 is now available




Dear Black Ink users,

We’re happy to announce a new release!

Following the introduction of floating windows in the last release, we added a new “Secondary Viewport” which provides a second, independent view of your document to save unnecessary navigation while you work. It has all the common navigation and drawing capabilities of the main view to give you as much freedom as possible and create your own workflow.

We also added a log window to follow what’s happening inside Black Ink and a Preference window. This first batch of options in the preferences will help you set-up and troubleshoot your tablet as well as adjust GPU options.

On the drawing side, you can now choose whether or not to have a constant screen brush size and flip your canvas horizontally or vertically with corresponding shortcuts. Very useful for sketches!

About future updates, we are still working on our fill tools which are shaping up to be a very interesting and complementary addition to Black Ink’s features.

As always thank you for your support and see you again soon for more news!

Bleank Team.

List of changes :

  • New Secondary Viewport. This panel displays another view of the canvas with the same drawing features and live editing.
  • New U shortcut: toggle Secondary Viewport
  • New Drawing view can be flipped horizontally(shortcut: F) or vertically (shortcut: G)

    • Stylus Section : User can now monitor some parameters of their stylus.
      • A calibration process is accessible now if Black Ink doesn’t retrieve correct stylus position.
      • The Reset button sets the calibration values back to the driver’s default.
      • The Precise stylus calibration check box discards the tablet driver’s stylus position and relies on the system’s mouse position (less accurate)
    • GPU Section : User can choose a rendering API, a specific adapter and whether Black Ink should wait for the VSync of the monitor when rendering the user interface.


  • New Log View panel. This panel displays logged information of Black Ink activity (shortcut: I)

  • New Notification Bar : Warning and error messages are displayed on this bar if the Log panel isn’t visible.

  • Fixed Rendering artifacts on some brushes

  • Fixed Random crash when changing color after clicking the color button in parameter editor.
  • Fixed Crash when using the Transform tool on little canvas.
  • Fixed Crash when opening a grayscale JPEG image.
  • Fixed Using the second button on a stylus stops the stroke and the user can’t draw until he uses another tool
  • Fixed An error in color mode blending equation.
  • Fixed The lasso informations are now in canvas space. This enables the user to transform the view while retaining all lasso data.
  • Fixed Tool icons and brush favorites overlaps after a Black Ink Window resize

  • Color palette is now interpolated in gamma space instead of linear space for easier color picking.

  • The maximum zoom limit is now 6400% instead of 1600%

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.

As of May 7th 2015 it's still very-much in beta mode, issues with Wacom tablet sensitivity, setting canvas size and the documentation is far from complete (a lot of missing and wip pages). No practical brushes are included, I guess it's up to the user to make them. Brush generation is less extensive than it was made out to be. Interesting but I can't recommend it in it's current state. Download Krita instead.

My toaster has more features than this $100 waste of money. I like how some of the brushes look, but overall it feels very incomplete.

-No circle, square, or polygon tools
-No magic wand selection or similar color selection
-No straight or curved line tools
-Very few default brushes, even less useful ones
-Only eight layers

There are free programs that can do a hell of a lot more than this piece of ♥♥♥ can. Save your money.

Have only used this for half a dozen digital paintings, but there are two vital things about this program that you should know:

1) This is NOT designed to replicate traditional mediums. If you're looking for Corel Paint, you're in the wrong place. In fact, the more abstracted or impressionist you work, the brighter this program shines. This is because...

2) This program IS designed to take advantage of the DIGITAL apsect of digital painting. At its strongest, Black Ink uses algorithems to do what would otherwise be impractical with other drawing programs. To get the most out of this program, you MUST take advantage of that fact, otherwise you'll wind up frustrated.

Because of these two things, you must know that this program is not for every digital painting nor every digital painter. But if want to make non-realistic paintings that take advantage of the digital nature of digital painting, this is definietely the program to do it on.

First of all, the program is just fantastic. I bought it one year before and i´m still impressed, what you can do!
But, it has to be sayin, that you need skill to create fantastic creations like in in the overview. Its NOT like photoshop, it is kinda like your own digital paintbox with all brushes you wish for. This makes that program unique in my eyes.

Devenetly a purchase recommendation for every hobby/professional digital artist!
