I use Sai and Photoshop as my mains.  Photoshop for pixel work and animation mostly cause I'm lazy and depend on Sai's automatic blending.

 

I have Krita and I've used it a few times, but Krita kinda sucks if you're using new PCs and tablets.  It's not really compatible with new hardware, and it's strange considering it's a newer software.  :(  It only works when I'm using my old tablet.  I know @kyles just got a new tablet, the same one I'm getting, and it apparently crashes for her.  I know when I use my grandpa's tablet which he bought fairly recently, the lines are jittery and they show up about 2in away from where the pen is actually drawing.

 

Sucks cause it kinda brings the best of all the programs into one, but takes forever to receive optimization for things.

Krita crashed on me like twice when I was trying to make a support banner and it's weird to use.

The text function confused the heck out of me, it's complicated and not intuitive at all... I'm used to PS CS6 tho so I'm spoiled.

 

I'm gonna test out paint clip studio because I just don't have the mental effort to find and download CS6 again   :llaaaa:   not right now anyways

 

I used to use SAI for a little bit but I like the functions of CS6 way more. Esp liquify cause i dont draw even LOL

I use Photoshop CC, Open Canvas 6, Corel Painter 12.

 

Photoshop is like my go to for everything, its my main bitch. I started using open canvas a long time ago, it was my first program, however after I got photoshop I kind of abandoned it. I recently started using it again and it's quite nice for certain styles. It took me a really long time until I grasped how to use Corel Painter. It's just a really complicated program with over 100 different brushes that work on specific layers and settings. However the effort certainly paid off, because I enjoy using it to create some really great paintings.

 

[edit since Chelly added tablets]

 

I use a wacom bamboo tablet, it kind of glitches and has low pen pressure. I can't really afford a new tablet yet, but I really want a tablet display.

I use Krita mainly because, love of my life really.

 

But, I use to use sai and it was good too.

 

Krita just messes me up cause, it give me all the feels my dude. It might crash sometimes but, it recovers that hardcore and just really truly is the love of my life at this point.

*Update*

 For anyone looking to try out Krita yes it may not work with newer tablets and may crash. Also it takes a lot of getting use to because of the fact that the way the sizes work and stuff isn't as big as the circle and I find that sometimes I have to restart my computer to get the lines to work the way I want them to so it's not for everyone but, if you're willing to deal with all that crap I say go for it :lazemstrstealurgorl:

Also I have the Intous Wacom tablet and it's cheap but, works great on Krita :fingerguns:

 

 

*Update No.2* cause, needs

For those people looking to start on art and all that jazz here you in no way need some fancy tablet or program! There are plenty of people even on here that use mouses or all the free programs for their art. So anyone who may get discouraged over things like photoshop or tablets costing money that doesn't matter because, you can still make some awesome art! :alienunce:

I spruced up the topic so it had a lil more meaning.  

 

:lazelaptop:

 

Currently I use a bamboo pen tablet.  Ya, one of those ancient things from back when tablets were still a new concept.  It's the very first model, the one without the buttons.  

 

:lazerollcry:

 

BUT I'M GETTING A NEW TABLET IN A COUPLE OF DAYS AND I'M HYPED AF.

And i have the Bamboo pen (the ones with the buttons) which is a reaaally old version

bamboo-pen-tablet.jpg

but i bought a new one because there was so many scratches and sometimes the cord isnt connecting because of the worn out wire (it goes on and off) so it is collecting dust in my junk right now

 

 

i am now using Bamboo fun

I've tried drawing on a display tablet before at a convention a few years back

and damn its hard since im not used to traditional drawing or drawing directly on screen :gross:

I use a Wacom Cintiq 27QHD for my tablet. (I really regret buying the big ol' expensive ass thing.)

For the programs I use, Paint Tool SAI for practically everything, and Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint for effects and colour fixes. 

:fartsies:
