Happy new year!



Hello,

In this holiday season we’d like to keep you updated on Black Ink’s progress.
We’re working on a whole new system that will make our brushes way more powerful. This new development will allow us to add texture, blur, smudge and many other effects to the brushes while maintaining Black Ink’s speed. Stay tuned for further informations!

In the meantime we hope you had a great christmas and we wish you a very happy new year!

关于这款软件

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.

Black Ink is in early access
..................................................................................................................................................................................................

Why Early Access?

"In order to achieve this we chose to put Black Ink in the hands of the users as soon as possible to gather feedback, adapt our development to their needs and also help us finance the project while staying independent."


Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

"Black Ink will stay in early access as long as we feel something too important is missing.
This is an iterative development and no fixed date is set but we hope we can call it complete within the next two years."


How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

"Every feature in the full version will appear during the Early Access process as we develop them.
We are planning on adding more options to brush creation and even a way to mix them together, more drawing tools like symmetry and cloning, better management of layer number, more customization options like custom keyboard shortcuts, new presentation for some UI elements and other improvements asked by the community. We also aim at releasing on OSX.

You can see a detailed list of planned developments here"


What is the current state of the Early Access version?

"Black Ink is fully functional and each update is tested and stable. The ongoing development is all about adding features. A lot of people are already enjoying drawing with Black Ink (here) and are giving us feedback on what to add next to make it better."

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

"Black Ink’s price will raise as it becomes more complete and attain a full version value once it leaves early access.

We will announce major price-changing updates in advance so everyone can get a chance to get it cheaper."


How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

We closely monitor our community activity for feedback, bug reports, feature suggestions and of course drawings! That’s how we keep Black Ink stable and usable.

Each feature development is evaluated according to what our users are asking and we are of course happy to publish the best drawings on our network.

We also have an ‘Alpha’ program that users can sign up to. This version is a work in progress of the next release, it contains the features we are working on and testers can help us make them as complete as possible and stabilize the release.

While I do really like the program, I can't recommend it unless it is on a big sale.

I bought the product in its early stages, when it was still under early access. I was impressed by it. It had just enough features to justify a purchase during the early access stage, and received numerous updates in short time spans. The dev's were also extremely open to the community and replied to our feedback.

Now it's pretty much a dead program that somehow made it out of early access, despite it being in an almost exact same state as it was when it came on Steam. The last update was in September 2015, and the last news post was wishing us a "Happy new 0-Black Ink updates year".

I gave 50€ for this program (with a 50% "early access" discount!), because the devs gave me a good impression, and I liked the demo. What I do not understand concerning the pricing is; why is the release price cheaper than the discounted early access price? That is some shaddy stuff, they were probably deceiving people by making them think they will save 50€ by getting it during early access.

Again, I can only recommend this product if it is on a large sale (70%+), and only if you wish to start digital art as a hobby. There are far more fleshed out illustration tools for professional use out there, this definitely is not worth your money, I at least hope my faulty purchase has saved you from yours.

I will also recommend this product, IF the devs somehow reform themselves into their past selves, and make regular updates a thing again. And by regular updates I don't mean small bugfixes, but some actual flesh to the current bones.

Ignore the seemingly generous price point* of Black Ink, it's simply missing too many key features to be seriously considered as a competitive art application. I've rarely seen this software updated in 3 years of ownership so I'm not holding my breath that any missing features will be added.

Tablet functionality is pretty lacking with an Intuos 4. Beyond the basic pen functions, there's no real advanced functionality available. Forget about dynamic zoom or adjusting brush size on the fly.

Whilst a GPU accelerated art application soley focused on digital art is a novel idea, you'll be infinitely better served by the usual Photoshop, Corel Painter or even Manga Studio. From a professional standing, Black Ink just isn't powerful or robust enough to compete with these packages. I wouldn't even recommend it for a casual/hobbyist user.

*It's worth noting that when Black Ink first hit Steam in 2013, it was supposed to be ~£70, with the current price being an early-access special. At some point that original price was dropped.

An impressive painting application that I find pretty useful for non-realistic concept drawings.

Brushes are easy to play with and I found it works reliably for 8k resolution without noticeable slowdowns. I would question its current usage into further productivity beyond usage I’ve outlined at this moment in time, however the software appears to be in continued development so this may change. But for a creative painting tool its certainly recommended.

Great program and a great concept that works very, very well. But stunted development since it's release onto steam.

Basically you can buy it, and it's cool, but you won't be able to do much with it because it's still pretty much an alpha product with a major lack of features. When updatest do come, they're usually adding very basic features that are a necessity for this to be called a full fledged application, and they are really well implemented too usually, but the rate of their implementation is slow and the version numbering speaks for itself. (0.249.2089; Who thought of that, wasn't 0.2.5 good enough?) I like the direction this program is going in, but the snailing pace of the developers... There have been no upates for 7 months at the moment of this writing, and it seems to be going to continue like this for a while.

They also promised linux and mac support long ago, it bugs me they haven't gone through with it yet. The earlier you do this kind of stuff in the development process the less of a hassle it becomes later down the line to maintain support for all these operating systems.

While it is rather expensive and a bit hard to start out, it is definetly a great artwork software. It's very practical and straight-forward with its functions, and has great potential for a digital artist. It also supports WacomTablet software, which as a huge plus for those who are avid artists. My only problem though, is that it is limited to only 8 layers.

The devs are nice people and the community helps out alot! Most of the community uploads thier self made brushes to the forum page so everyone can download them. For this price its really worth it, for both beginners and pro's. ^^

Using this program has been interesting. Here's a pseudo review and half feedback. This is after an hour run. I'm also using Windows 10 and if the developers are interested, I can give them an indepth overview of my system specs.

Cons:
> Checking the documentation in Help would just leave me in a google search and opens internet explorer. Despite the fact Chrome is my default browser setting. I also wish the documentation is offline as I want to turn off the internet when working and in order to focus. The documentation is also incomplete. Making me unable to fully appreciate the full features of this program as I trial and error throughout the entire time.

> It's also weird that the program doesn't start with the layer editor by default. And there's an 8 layer limit which threw me off. Since I'm used to making tons of sketches and making new layers instead of creating a new canvas. That made me sad. :(

> Shortcut keys are non-adjustable. And even looking at the settings stated in the documentary doesn't match up to the keys I'm seeing. Z = Zoom but it adjusts smoothing. Q is actually the zoom shortcut key. Among other things. I rely heavily on shortcut keys to have a faster workload so that tripped me up. There's also a time that when I go to Eraser (pressing E) and then erase and back to sketch (I am used to the B/N key) it will swap to the color of the canvas (in this case white). I'm unsure what causes this. I assumed it's because of primary/secondary color but I haven't seen any indication of this anywhere in the window. It also took me a while to find the color picker but once I found it, it makes sense. Speaking of which...

> The color picker, in all honest I wish was a wheel instead of the square layout because it's easier for me to pick colors to complement the one in the sketch. This is a con for me while it might not be for others. But in Photoshop or other graphic programs I use, I can either implement it as a plugin or it's there by default. I hope future iterations will also have it. Even if I have to pay an extra fee.

> Fill tool has fill canvas, alpha and its invert version. I haven't seen any option to manually fill specific parts of the layer only (For example, if I have a lineart where I want the top to be orange and the bottom to be be blue outlines like other art programs). I'm assuming it's not in.

Now that I have said all my gripes I will now spaz out as to why this program has so much promise and why I want to recommend it.

Pros:
> The UI feels soooo good to draw in. It's also so nice to navigate. It is unnatural at first but it's easily fixable. The UI is also dockable and adjustable so I can do whatever workspace I want in it.

> All Basic shape options are in. That's good!

> The default brushes themselves are nice, especially when pen tips are all the types I like as well. I have no complaints. Especially when used with the Controller Editor. The ability to use gradient as a brush color is a super nice touch as well. The brush blending options (Normal, Multiply, Additive and Subtract) are a nice welcome. Now all I need is Color Dodge and my life is complete haha.

> The Controller Editor is unique and fun to use. It's almost like designed for a game engine, Adobe After Effects or Toon Boom's animation options that I'm super familiar with. I still have to create more brushes but so far I am liking it and I think it's easily one of the strengths of the program.

> The line options. Making background layouts in this program fits my workflow much better. Shift using a brush is great because it shows a wheel to show what angle you are in and helps me alot to be accurate. My space perception is horrible so this helps me a LOT. It also can be adjusted to detect pressure sensitivity or static. This is great.

> The Smoothing. I never liked using these because I am confident of with my strokes, but the way the smoothing actually helps me and doesn't feel intrusive is great. Especially the way it adjusts. It's like a better version of Flash curved line.

> The ability to put an image for referencing/tracing over sketches without having to add a new layer is GREAT. I love it. Thank you for that :)

Do I recommend this? Well it depends.

Personally, I don't see this working for any final work. I recommend it for experimental sketching or concepts. It's fun to use, great feel and has enough tools. However, compared to Photoshop especially it's blending layers, it might be lacking. Especially if you're the type to put in pictures and abuse its blending modes to get an idea for a compositional piece. The lack of documentation is very offputting but if you're used to tinkering other softwares, this isn't going to be hard to understand.

But yes, I do recommend it. I can't wait for future updates and a better documentation. I will adjust this review if an update happens.

Contrary to some of the reviews posted here this is an incredible piece of software for producing more than just abstract or impressionist mediums. Having dabbled with the brush setups this program is capable of producing a level of fine detail that also lends itself to all types of artwork, including something that looks almost photorealistic if required. Amazingly this can be acheived simply changing the settings of one brush throughout.

At first I will admit it was a struggle to get to grips with anything other than experimenting with the stock brushes to create weird and wonderful doodles but once you learn how to modify brushes to your liking the sky really is the limit. Compared to the price of art software of a similar quality and scope this program really is a steal.

After about a full year of usage, I'm extremely happy with this piece of software. I originally used it with just a mouse, and it felt natural to draw. However just got a drawing tablet and now I can finally use this how it was meant to be used. The brushes are by no means realistic, but embrace that. Its a steal for the price, and I'd recommend this over something like Sketchbook any day.

Hands down the most creative drawing software in existence. No it will not replace Photoshop, nor can Photoshop replace this. If you are a graphics designer and/or artist of any kind, you most likely want this in your arsenal of drawing tools. It will work for an entire project or as an helpful tool next to other software (and vice versa).

This program gives you control over parametrically controlled brushes, the results are beyond interesting.
Other 'basic' editing tools you would expect from any drawing software are slowly being added, the software is still in development, something to keep in mind.

Opinions differ of-course. I'll say its most definitely worth having in its current state for the price its being offered for. try the demo.
