DEFINATELY PHOTOSHOP D trust me on this one, it can do almost everything that any other digital painting software can do and more i.e. if you need texture its easier to apply etc. AANNDD adobe is giving away cs2 for free so just use that
just in luck, a few days ago one of the people I was watching released a journal to spread the word around. Adobe has released it's photoshop cs2 out to public for free along with some of it's older versions of the programs. [link]
Actually, according to their staff, Adobe's original intention was to allow legitimate purchases of the software an activation, after they shut down their old activation servers. It's just that they removed any real barriers to obtaining a free copy, which is weird.
It technically shouldn't be legal to use these programs, but the news accidentally became so viral, and I believe Adobe still hasn't offered an official response.
thank you everyone for your help and advice XD but replying to everyone individually is getting a little repetitive so please dont think me rude you have all been most helpful, (please do not take this to mean i do not want further advice)
i would still like to know how to get more brushes in SAI XD
i recommend Sai, its beautiful to sketch on, and their brushes are really something good! :] It is cheaper than Photoshop, also photoshop might be more confusing since it got way more opionions,tools, etc (: you can try trial on photoshop, and sai to check out what you like best (:
i started with photoshop, but now i am using Sai..i find it better while drawing, while photoshop is more for my photos. But its seriously up to each person what they prefer just try it out..
