Okay, so I know that most (all) of you here are far more interested in 2D than 3D, but I would be remiss if I didn't point out some pretty great Black Friday software sales coming in other products.

In particular anyone doing 3D work needs one or both of the best painting/modeling/mapping programs out there, 3DCoat and Substance Painter. Both are heavily discounted this time of year and both are superb at making even mediocre models look stunning. I could not live without either one (and will be taking advantage of some of Allegorithmic's other software sales today to buy some more Substances).

Just to show you what Substance Painter can do -- I took a plain white model and painted it in about five minutes and here is the side by side comparison. This was also the very first time I ever used Substance Painter -- so I'll get better (but honestly, this thing is so no-brainer even someone who knows nothing about 3D modeling can make their models look professional).

(Watch it fullscreen to truly appreciate the texturing)

It is worth noting that Painter is just that, a 3D painter, while 3DCoat is a full sculpting/remeshing/Painting software, it competes with ZBrush and the likes!

Yeah, I like them both but 3DCoat is something I use all the time (Painter is more of a Substance tool, assuming folks know what Substances are).

There are some good Black Friday deals this year on iClone and associated products, if anyone wants to jump into that world.

Well, there are certainly useful for your work with iClone, I cant think of working without Painter anymore, for 3D work that is, and I prefer 3DCoat over ZB any day, ZB gives me the hibigibies to be honest!

Yeah, I've never actually been about to use ZBrush, although many people just love it.

3D Coat is on sale this weekend for a substantial discount. Just FYI for anyone else.
