...What do you use?
I'm a newbie to the forum and very inspiried by what I've seen on these pages. I'm more of a cartoonist than a concept artist, but non the less, I love to create enviornments and characters.
My main interest is really what programs people prefer to use for digital painting and why? I have Photoshop CS and are planning on getting Painter8 because it's brushes handle more like real media. Plus I cheat and use a Wacom.
So what programs do you guys perfer?
dude you can use a wacom with any of those programs,
and it CERTAINLY isn't cheating.
you're limiting yourself greatly using a mouse.
UNLESS you're one of those people that happens to rock with a mouse and love it, well in that case rock on!!
but tablets are a really great tool.
I've used a Wacom for so long, using a mouse is like cave painting for me. My parents bought me a Wacom when I was eight and ever since it is all I've ever used.
I greatly respect those people who can create great imagry using just a mouse.
