Welcome!


Howler 2021 become available in late July 2020. It's an ongoing development, new builds are coming, some released... You can see the details about each or most of the new and recent builds below.

We now also have a cheaper Artist edition. Don't get me wrong: PD Howler is very affordable, considering all it offers. But there are a few things you might never use, nor want to pay for. If you don't do animation or multi-frame rendering, check PD Artist.

Not sure which one to pick? Compare the two:  PD Howler vs. PD Artist - what's the difference?

Reminder:
Project Dogwaffle (PD) is first and foremost a digital painting program. But it also does much more.




Never heard of Project Dogwaffle? or PD Artist or PD Howler, PD Particles??

What's (arguably) not so good? (there's always one or two achilles heels, right?)

All in all, Howler is howling fast. Heavily optimized and designed on low end systems, due mostly to starving-artist budget realities, you'll likely find that runs very smoothly on your desktop or laptop Windows PC too. This software does not require high-end gaming systems, though it's nice to have a dream machine:
