    A multimodal artistic interface



    Traditional artists receive feedback from their tools that excites the visual, aural and tactile senses. The digital artist often only receives visual feedback. We propose a novel painting interface that incorporates the aural, tactile and visual senses, to enable users more accurate control over their painting tool. The multimodality of this system makes it unique amongst other existing digital art interfaces.
