    I am using Photoshop 7. But I just started using it about a week ago since I just got my Wacom 6x8 for Christmas.

    I have a friend that swears by Painter, and since I knew I was getting the tablet I decided to pick up one or the other to learn. I think taking on painter and PS at the same time would be too much. I chose PS 7 because it leans more toward brush effects rather than mediums like painter. Which is sort of the reason I am asking your opinion of it because of you obvious experience with photoshop prior to tryin painter.
    Photoshop is a very powerful tool for both painting and photo manipulation. I personally think it lacks in the painting/drawing side because (and many people can argue this) pencil, ink and pastel/paint effects are simply effects that one has to create using brush settings. Don't get me wrong there is a lot of power in the customizing of brushes, but I feel as though, painter right out of the box has great tools that only need tweaking if you prefer the feel of a certain type of pen or type of pastel. I guess what I'm trying to say is that painting in photoshop feels like either Airbrush or Guache/acrylic where as in painter it can feel like anything you want with little effort.

    Another plus of painter is the ability to turn the canvas/paper like you would when you normally draw. In photoshop it is possible to turn the whole canvas but not interactively.

    Also in photoshop I have a tendency to achieve great color effects through using layers, opacity settings and blending modes (like overlay, linear doge and multiply for example). In painter I normally think of the canvas like I would on an oil painting (which two colors belong next to each other, which color overlaid like a glaze would achieve the effect I want). In painter I normally don't go crazy with the layers, in photoshop I have many photo manipulations with 15 layers+ easy.

    I would suggest you stick to one, like you are, until you get the hang of it or until you feel comfortable enough to venture of into other apps. I have been messing with Maya for 3D for a little while and recently Zbrush for some modelling work as well. I am sure many of the guys here would say: it's always more important to have the fundamentals down. The rest is just which tool you want to pickup to express yourself.

    I hope I was somewhat helpful, and If you have any photoshop questions you can always PM me.


    Thanks everyone for the great feedback. I am excited to see so much of everyone's work in this thread. I think I feel a little wierd about throwing crits out on people's work, because this was my first post. But I'll have some time later in the day, and I will comment on all the great stuff in here more specifically.

    Peace

    C.O.W. - #072: Blue Mountain Glider

    Blue, Blue Blue-mountain Glider
    The blue glider is a very depressed bird, some would describe his personality as blue. The blue glider goes bald and gets a gut at a short age and is unable to glide because of the weight. The creature lives in the blue mountains and can be distinguished by its blue coat of feathers. blue.

    Oddo this is a good one! I dig that you use a stripper for scale Nice touch - oh, I mean no touch, you may not touch the stripper

    I do think you need to do something about the amorpheous shape on the right - it uncomfortably distracts from the turtle.

    dragon4lunch :

    Thank you . I have reduced the big roky shape on the right on the last update. Mainly detailed its face (touched up this and that), made it seem to enjoy the ride more .

    Also the square-ish white shape on the left is bugging me a bit ... maybe I should make it a bit more angular ... if time permits .

    Would have put more color variation in it too but Fozzybar scared me with his size 6:
