Project Dogwaffle 2 was available as a giveaway on December 4, 2008!
Project Dogwaffle 2 is a paint program for the PC which also includes animation features. Started in 1997 as a project to work around shortcomings of the established 'big guns' tools used in the professional community, it is loaded with fast or realtime filters for color enhancing in digital photos and animations, special effects and many built-in natural media brushes.
Dogwaffle also has powerful user-defined custom and animated brushes, fractal particle brushes, full tablet support, non-opaque layers, artist guides, powerful color gradients, great text tools, special FX for sky, snow, wet paint and even effects used commonly in 3D CG such as lens flares, as well as full Alpha support with direct painting on Alpha. Perfect for the hobbyist on a tight budget who likes to explore colors and shapes, and equally useful for web artists, game content creators, cartoonists, designers as well as in digital photography and traditional animation, Project Dogwaffle almost lets you paint the natural way - but without the mess.
