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
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
- 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
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
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
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
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.
