  • News: Hands on: Corel graces Painter X3 with new visual, brush, and painting features

    There's image editing and then there's fine art--and Corel has always positioned Painter, its flagship professional painting program, on the creative end of the spectrum. With the release of Painter X3 (the 13th version of the famed natural-media software) for Mac and Windows, Corel seeks to augment Painter's position as a leading inspirational tool for creatives working in photographic and traditional art, illustration, Manga and comic art, conceptual art, and design. Even though it emerged roughly around the same time as its image-editing contemporary, Adobe Photoshop, Painter holds a unique place in the art world for its drawing and painting prowess.

  • Opinion: 5 streaming TV shows full of badass, shady ladies

    A couple of weeks ago, seemingly everyone on my Twitter feed was linking to Laurie Penny's thoughtful essay in the New Statesman, "I was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl." It's a great piece worth reading, a hopeful lamentation on the idea that "Men grow up expecting to be the hero of their own story. Women grow up expecting to be the supporting actress in somebody else's." I think that's true sometimes, but luckily this week's crop of streaming TV shows is crammed with strong female characters--badass main characters at that. These women can't be packed into neat, boxed-shaped archetypes like MPDG or any other, unless there's a box for "Criminally intelligent, and sometimes just criminal, shady ladies who are up to no good."
