BLACK INK 2020 is out!

 Dear Black Ink users,

It’s been a long time coming but we are finally ready and happy to announce the release of Black Ink 2020!


New Features list


This new version introduces a whole lot of new features, the biggest of them being the brand new layer editor.
Not only will you be able to handle more layers but also discover and leverage a completely new and innovative nodal system, in line with our procedural philosophy.
We propose a combination of layer stack and nodes to give you a powerful non-destructive solution while maintaining ease of use.

You are going to discover an entirely new way of managing your layers that will give you more flexibility, freedom and new possibilities for your creations!

We are very sorry for the long wait but we embarked on a huge endeavour with this feature and couldn’t stop until we were able to give you the best experience we can. Our independence and small team are what keep this passion alive and we really hope you can see how much care we put in this huge update.

If you already own Black Ink you will get this update for free, as we committed to.

In order to maintain this fair licensing plan and still develop our dream software, we are going to launch a Patreon campaign soon to enable those willing to support us a little bit further. So if you’re interested or know someone who might be, you can spread the word and help us making the best, ground-breaking, innovative digital painting software on the market!

If you would like to know more about this update, please visit this page.
Video tutorials will follow but we put some documentation about the new layer editor here.

You are welcome to give your feedback and come discuss on:

Black Ink Update! (0.301)
Black Ink Update! (0.301)
Hello everyone and happy new year!
We’re very glad to announce a new major update for Black Ink!
This update is very important as it offers brand new tools that will expand even more the field of brush creation.
It took a lot of time and effort to integrate these new powerful tools, while ensuring the continuity of performance and comfort you have always been used to experience with previous versions of Black Ink.
This is why we hope that you will like using it as much as we liked making it.
Black Ink New Release 0.301
You can now apply any type of effect on your brush like smudge, blur, procedural shapes, textures, shadows, relief, gradients, etc. These effects are fully editable within Black Ink thanks to a new dedicated language called BSL ( Brush Shader Language )
You can already access the video presentation for this update 

For more details about these features and the bug fixes for this version, you will find the complete release notes here

We would also like to thank you for your patience, we didn’t want to release this version too early.

Keep in mind that we’re developing Black Ink with the intent of bringing you a complete and powerful generative art creation software/solution that will, hopefully, leave its mark in the future.
Note the demo version allows you to test Black Ink for 4 hours without any limitation.
In the months to come, we will integrate UI scaling so Black Ink can be used on 4K screens. We will also add support for more layers and, of course, plenty of new brushes with even better effects.
See you soon

Bleank Team
