The development of Expresii traces back to 1999 when Computer Graphics researcher Nelson Chu first designed a 3D deformable virtual Chinese brush. Subsequently he deviced fluid-dynamics-based ink simulation, which was presented at SIGGRAPH 2005 under the name of MoXi. The MoXi brush and ink tech was licensed to Adobe in 2006. Expresii is a successor of MoXi developed by Nelson Chu over the past four years with improved simulation and rendering.

Without a doubt, Expresii is the most specialized art application in this list, but some of you may find it a useful tool.
