Spellcasting: A painter of Reality never abandons his magical studies, and gains levels as indicated in the table, gaining more spells per day (and spells known, if applicable), taking the total level of increased caster. The character does not gain any other abilities of the class in question (as a bonus for the familiar or improved chance to turn undead). If the character had more than one spellcasting class before you purchase this prestige class, he must choose which of them will increase your caster level.
Real Painting (Su): At first level, you soon learn to act out their desires to the reality of the painting, creating objects from the paint. The character can paint objects that pop out when finished surface where they were made and become real. The objects can not have materialized more than 30 cm per level, and the objects must be be commun and non-magical and must always be inanimate objects. The objects remain real for a minute by class level, after which time they revert to the state of ink.
From the fourth level, the painter can materialize organic matter in the same proportion of inanimate matter, but only materializing food. The painter can materialize any food he wants, respecting the size limit, if foods are not consumed within an hour they revert to the state of ink.
From the seventh level, the understanding of the artist about his power becomes so complete that he can materialize even whole creatures. The creatures, although not limited by size, while still limited by the power of the painter, and the caster can create a creature that has a number of HDs less than or equal to three times the level in this prestige class. The creatures remain for up to one day per level in the prestige class before discarding. If the creatures in question are dead they revert to the state of ink immediately.
This is an active skill, the character of the paintings come to life only if he so desired.

When the time comes in which objects should revert to the state of ink, they simply vanish into thin air. With this ability, the time to let a work ready and reduced by 1 / 25 of the original time.
Discard Screen (Su): With this ability, the painter no longer needs a canvas to paint, which may create the objects you want in the very air. You can take the pictures you want in the air, as if painting over a surface, to be ready, the work usually materializes.
