If you've ever fancied your chances as a painter, sculptor, or 3D modeler, you may be interested in CoolPaintrVR, which has just been announced for PSVR. Launching on 9th May, this interesting software lets you use PlayStation Move controllers or a DualShock 4 to create your very own masterpieces.
It's not a game as such -- you're simply given a set of brushes and other tools to paint, sculpt, and shape within a virtual reality space. Going by the PlayStation Blog post, it sounds like you can go pretty deep with it.
"Use your PS Move controller like a brush, selecting from a variety of tools to express your creativity: brushes, tubes, geometric primitive shapes and particle emitters. Additionally – thanks to Wildbit Studios’ own RTSE technology – you can create a 3D model from a hand-drawn shape. It will have its own skeleton that you can manipulate, bone by bone, to help capture your desired stance."
You'll even be able to export your 3D creations to other third party software. It looks like a fun creative outlet for those that want one, and with a dedicated website where you can share your creations, we imagine we'll see some great things come out of this.

Bob Ross, what a legend. I used to love watching him and his fuzzy 'fro when I were a tyke.
Sounds like a lot of fun.
Hard to tell from the images if you are only painting in front of you or in a 360' space like being inside a dome. Being able to paint an entire world around yourself would be kind of cool.
I think this whole thing will seem kind of second hand once Dreams releases though.
@rjejr From what I understand, you can paint or build in a 3D space around you.
Not really my thing. But I do think PSVR does needs something like this.
Can I beat the devil out of it?
Definitely picking this up!
@Quintumply Thanks. Makes it more intriguing. If you were only able to paint in front of you on a wall or easel I wouldn't be interested as it really wouldn't need PSVR.
It is one I will buy the day it comes out sounds like fun!
Yeah, totally throwing my money at the screen right now...
