Hey guys! Some time ago there was a nice tool called "Creature House Expression", I remember I was using it on my old Mac... I hope someone remembers. It allowed to paint in a true vector while keeping the painting very lively. There were brushes like real brushes, you could mix your paints - while keeping it all in vectors. Like Corel Painter - but everything in vectors
Is there anything like that nowdays for Mac+Wacom?
You may want to look at Autodesk Sketchboook Pro Designer, Its a Painting/Vector Hybrid and quite amazing as it saves you time for using one tool for both.
Thanks! I will try it! Looks promising, but seems more like it's for design and not for painting... but let me try it...
Are there any alternatives? Unfortunately I find Sketchbook Pro unsuitable for painting
Sketchbook designer is different than sketchbook pro. It's a hybrid vector/raster that is useful for clean designs with smooth shading and nice lines. Probably not what you're looking for. It's interactive in a very unique way, but the results don't look like a painting. Vector color blending sounds interesting, never seen anything like it

Thank you very much, guys!
James Thornton - exactly!
Arshes Nei - unfortunately they stopped developing it for Mac since 2003.
Black Spot - looks very interesting.... will be trying it
shrunkendesigner - personally I find Illustrator too dedicated to design, instead of painting, but anyway thanks for reminder
that's why I have to keep windows xp to run painter 6 on mac, and I'll have to use it for painter IX.5 (which I would have preferred not to) when I upgrade to lion/mountain lion at some point.
any software released before 2005-2006 falls under "pre-intel".
Yeah, I was running Expression with Rosetta but the latest Lion doesn't support it completely. I tried to use it with Parallels but couldn't establish pressure sensitivity thus making it useless... and running a separate Windows on Mac is sooo boring and time/disk space consuming
