    Ooooh, neat. Thanks Patience!

    Grabbed that bleep before they wake up (this time)... uhh, I mean, that's a lot more generous price than I usually see. :)

    I"ve never used them before. The particles one looks VERY interesting, with the grass. But what exactly is Pro 3.5? Is it like photoshop? Or is it more of a "painting" program?

    This is quite an old version, but still well worth it a $2.50. I have version 3.7 which I bought a long time ago.

    It is a painting program, and it can do some wonderful things. Have a look at the website for tutorials, there are loads of them. The site is here : http://thebest3d.com/

    I have a lot of tutorials that came with mine that help to get you started.

    Thanks for the heads up and at the PA sale 1/2 off price they are a great bargain. But the low 'original price' may be about right. PD Particles is only $4.99 and PD 3.5 Pro is only $10.00 on the Project Dogwaffle site:

    If you want later versions PD Artist 2 (powered by PD Pro 6) and PD Pro 7 Howler are better bargains compared to the Project DogWaffle site:

    i was just reading their site, trying to work it out. Looks great - especially at that price. A good price for those of us who WANT to learn how to draw/paint digitally, but can't afford those higher-end programs. LOL.

    The Particles one is fascinating me - I'm not sure but are the particles included in Pro 3.5? As in, if i bought the 3.5 would I need to buy the particles one?

    That's nice! I got PD Particles a couple years ago and can't find it. Tempted to get it again.

    But I got PD Artist 6 today and the installer errors out when it's finished and the program won't run. It's one of those informative errors called 'unexpected'. And I don't know who I'm supposed to try to contact to give me direction.

    Maybe here? http://www.dogwaffle.info/
    Or you use the bugtracker ...

    I don't suppose anyone can get the 'nova' preset to work? It crashes PD Particles with a runtime error every time.
    Edit: Fixed it. There's an update on their website for anyone interested. Updated to 1.2 and it all works just fine.

    Thanks but I went through there with a fine tooth comb. Tried one thing I thought maybe might work, nah.

    So I googled and got the solution on the first entry. I had to run the installer as Adminstrator. You'd think I'd know that by now.

    It works.
