Paint Master

Packaging for Sinclair QL Paint Master Inlay for Sinclair QL Paint Master

Paint Master is a graphics package from Shadow Games which allows you to use colours, stipples and text, together with automated shapes to create your own pictures.

Advertised features were:

  • Use of all colours, stipples and text
  • Automatic drawing of many geometric shapes
  • Superimposed grid for guidance
  • Powerful duplicate facility which reproduces any object in any size, at any position and as many times as you want
  • Variable picture size
  • Redraw facility
  • Erasure of last command

The program creates a set of SuperBASIC commands which would re-create your drawing on screen, meaning that it was easy to delete the last command if you made a mistake, but the final picture was slow.

The package includes a mini text and graphics adventure to show how the resulting output could be incorporated within your own programs.

The author was working on Paint Master II but it is unknown if this was ever completed.
