"While we have made our tools very professional, we wanted to also keep
it very affordable for hobbyists and people who love
to paint to try this program. To our loyal customers of prior versions
we want to show out appreciation by making the upgrades very
attractive. For those new clients who are not certain if they want to
go with the full new v2 quite yet, we are keeping version 1.6 available
at the original $45 level. We think this will be a great incentive to
give it a try. "
"There are a lot of people out there who enjoy sketching and painting
in their spare time but can't justify the cost of the established and
expensive professional tools. In our "Dogwaffler of the Moment"
people from all walks of life and all ages are showing the many faces
of popular art. It is gratifying to know that Dogwaffle has helped them
todiscover and explore an artistic side they all have. But Dogwaffle is
also useful in professional 3D work, where I use it myself daily to
paint over dinosaur skins in uv maps, to make backdrops and other
imagery, animated textures, and to add lens flares, explosion, foliage
effects etc...", said Ritchie.
"If your work or hobby involves a pixel, then Project Dogwaffle should
be one of the tools you use."
