Deep Paint Freeware version

As mentioned on, the old 2D version of Deep Paint has been discontinued. However, it was turned into a freeware application, which is a kind gesture.

You can use it for painting, using a mouse or (even better) a Wacom Tablet. It has support for layers, has a direct link with Photoshop (but not the latest versions) and has some tools to introduce a bump-map effect (for which you can alter the lighting afterwards). Give it a try.

[Autodesk should have done this with the old LightScape]
