Puppy Settings 3 -  Parameters for City Scapes

Pre-ordering Beta of Howler 9 - Last week of best bargains!

 We're set to release Howler 9 next weekend, if all goes well. With that in mind, this is the final week to take advantage of the great discount you can enjoy by pre-ordering, whether it's a fresh new start as a first time full installer, or whether you're upgrading from a prior version. You may want to secure your best deal by pre-ordering version 9 of Howler.
 If you've already pre-ordered, you're about to receive another pre-release, beyond the beta 63 of V9, we'll send you a recent pre-release candidate. Not the final version yet, another update will follow soon, with the final final. And we all know,   it's never really final.
 Some time after you have had v9.0, there will be 9.1 unless a meteor hits us ;-)
 After the release we will still offer promotional discounts, but they're going to be $5 more than the pre-order discount. Your mileage may vary, depending on which version you upgrade from. Still, it ain't getting any cheaper.

 Oh, and if you know a student, aka a future starving artist, someone else who could be interested in howling and waffling, why not just surprise and buy them a copy? It's better to give than to receive.... At 70% off, it'll cost you a movie ticket for two and a very lite dinner, barely. But, unlike the popcorn and the drive home, this is an experience that will last a lifetime, not to mention feed us too.


Archipelis news  -  Keep an eye on Archipelis, some exciting news is coming
 Can't say much more for now. Just bookmark and return to these on occasion:
 (oh, wait, wow, we just added a first sneak peek - a preview of a certain 3D modeler coming as plugin to a certain digital painting program....)
 If you don't have Archipelis yet, don't delay. Upgrades to the next higher version are free. You can also get the latest or a very recent version through the Cool Creative Bundle.

300 3D Sticker Images - Dogwaffle Content! free downloads & brushes for users of PD Howler 9
 As you can see from one of the tutorials mentioned below, PD Howler 9 will be enhanced with a large collection of images for use as stamps, i.e. custom brushes. These stamps were created as 3D models and rendered to PNG with transparent background by Michel Agullo, who uses Hexagon and Carrara, and other tools. You can also order his high resolution prints as high quality vinyl prints, stickers for use in decorating kids rooms, school classrooms, hobby rooms and the kitchen. Look for more in the future, including refrigerator magnets.
 For now, here's a look at some of the images:
 There are many sticker images there, and Michel is creating more, new ones every day. In all, a total of 300 will be made available for free to users of PD Pro 9, Howler edition (and possibly Artist edition too, TBD later). A bunch of these may be included already with the realse. More will be downloadable with your order after the final release of v9.0, and even more on the website mentioned above. Finally, we intend to release a new collection every month.
 Why not take a peek now to see if there's a free collection there already? Be sure to bookmark it to come back easily. Michel Agullo's new website will be visible from there too.
3d stickers are coming!
