Discover one of the most powerful painting workflows within Blender
Blender offers some quite good painting tools, unfortunately you need to set up a lot of things before you can dive into painting. Many functions are only a very low level and you need to setup a lot before you paint. On top of that a cluttered UI hinders you from developing an efficient painting workflow. This is where BPainter solves quite a few issues. Here are 3 Reasons why BPainter could be the tool for you!

BPainter offers an intuitive layersystem you probably know from 2D painting apps. No UI Clutter. BPainter gives you all important functions at hand.
Universal Brush Library

The layersystem offers all sorts of blending modes. Some commonly used are for example:
And many more
BPainter ships with a default Colorpalette. Easily create new palettes which are globally available.
Blenders Colorpicker is sort of limited. Picking colors from layers lets you only pick colors of that particular layer. No mixed colors of multiple layers can be picked. BPainter Colorpicker tackles that problem.
BPainter offers a different set of features for Blenders Internal and CyclesRenderer. Here is a feature comparison of both render modes.
