Corel has introduced the Painter IX Art Pen Brush Pack, a collection of new brushes designed to work and take advantage of the Wacom 6D Art Pen. Corel and Wacom worked together on the new brushes, which will respond to the "barrel rotation" capability in the 6D Art Pen. The brushes are available as a free download from Corel.

The brushes not only respond to the x- and y-axes, tilt, bearing and pressure sensitivity, but also add the extra dimension of barrel rotation. This, says Wacom, makes the digital painting experience more natural than ever before.

The Art Brush Pen Pack includes the Thin Smooth Calligraphy Brush, Grainy Calligraphy Brush, Soft Flat Oils Brush, Square Grainy Pastel Brush and a Tapered Gouache Brush.
