Jared Nick­er­son cre­ates an illo us­ing just one of Corel’s new tools


Much as a painter would care­fully con­sider which brush to use when creat­ing a mas­ter­piece, dig­i­tal artists must choose wisely when it comes to soft­ware, en­sur­ing it has all the cor­rect tools to help bring your cre­ative vi­sions to life. That’s where CorelDRAW Graph­ics Suite 2017 ex­cels. Cre­ated with care for pro­fes­sion­als and hob­by­ists alike, this val­uerich suite has ev­ery­thing you need to achieve your artis­tic vi­sions.

CorelDRAW Graph­ics Suite 2017 has an abun­dance of fea­tures aimed specif­i­cally to in­spire, en­hance and aid an artist’s work­flow, in­clud­ing multi-mon­i­tor, 5K and real-time sty­lus sup­port, the amaz­ing new LiveSketch tool, en­hanced vec­tor pre­views, nodes and han­dles, the Heal­ing Clone tool in Corel PHOTO-PAINT, plus the abil­ity to copy, past and du­pli­cate curve seg­ments.

Sev­eral pre­de­fined workspaces are also avail­able to help keep all the tools spe­cific to your in­dus­try or­gan­ised and eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble. Choose be­tween Page Lay­out, Il­lus­tra­tion, or set your workspace to look like Adobe Pho­to­shop or Il­lus­tra­tor to help ease the tran­si­tion from Cre­ative Suite.


An ex­tremely pop­u­lar choice, CorelDRAW is al­ready be­ing used by many tal­ented cre­atives all over the globe, in­clud­ing renowned fine artist Dmitry Demi­denko. Pro­gress­ing from a sim­ple de­signer in a small pro­vin­cial print­ing ser­vice to a world-fa­mous artist in just five years, Demi­denko not only uses CorelDRAW to cre­ate his mas­ter­pieces, he also teaches nu­mer­ous mas­ter­classes about it, shar­ing the soft­ware’s ex­ten­sive ca­pa­bil­i­ties with other artists.

An­other award-win­ning artist fully ex­ploit­ing CorelDRAW’s com­pre­hen­sive toolset is Ro­ge­lio Her­nan­dez Gar­cia. Hav­ing spent a lot of time us­ing the soft­ware, Gar­cia en­tered the 2015 CorelDRAW In­ter­na­tional De­sign Con­test, and ended up walk­ing away with first prize in the Speed Draw­ing Cat­e­gory.
