Creating original drawings through a virtual application is not an uncommon activity nowadays and most users have surely tried their hand at this at least once. There are all sorts of utilities for this purpose, each with their own set of functions to make it stand out from the rest of the crowd.
What sets apart Speedy Painter Portable from similar tools is the fact that is is based on OpenGL, one of the most used standards in graphic design and it packs some features that are seldom seen in this type of programs.
The fact that it doesn’t have to be installed onto the system it is deployed is a great advantage for this software solution because users will be able to use their personal profiles on any PC they access.
The nice and clean interface of Speedy Painter Portable has a generous space reserved for the canvas onto which you can start drawing freely. The tools for painting are very limited, in fact you can only use a brush, for which you have only a handful of adjustments at your disposal. Besides selecting the desired brush stroke type between dynamic size and dynamic flow, you can use a texture, to make the design more interesting.
Insofar as the brush settings are concerned, you will be able to set its size, opacity as well as hardness degree by simply moving the corresponding sliders on the lower part of the main window. The toolbar placed on the left side holds all the buttons for the drawing process, tool modes and for the generic actions like ‘undo’, ‘redo’, ‘flip’ or ‘save’.
On the whole, Speedy Painter Portable can yield some great results in the hand of the experienced designer and is easy enough to be used by beginners. Nonetheless, the functions are rather scarce and some filters or other types of enhancements would certainly be welcomed.
