    Digital Art Programs

    kso, I'm looking into doing more digital art stuff. What art program should I use? Photoshop is really only good for picture editing and I have SAI for coloring. So my main focus is a program where you can sketch down things and stuff. Me and my mom looked at some stuff and here's what we've found:

    Corel Painter 12: http://www.corel.com/corel/product/inde ... NASEMGglGR

    Corel Painter 11: http://www.corel.com/corel/product/inde ... ageCode=en I actually prefer this over 12, but I wouldn't mind either.

    Auto Desk Sketchbook Pro: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc ... id=6848332 This looks pretty cool, but I don't really know a lot about it.

    So I need your guys' help on which one to pick?

    INB4, Well you already have photoshop so you can doodle in there and paint in SAI.
    NO. Drawing in photoshop is a *****.

    Corel Painter 12 is one sale, so you should pick that one. If you're "purchasing" the program with...other means , I have a neutral opinion.

    EDIT: The Autodesk program is greatly cheaper than the others, so you might want to check out the user interfaces first, see what they're like. (Try out Trials, too, if available!)

    Well I don't want a program with a bunch of crap I wont use (hence why I only have photoshop CS3, CS5 looks confusing) so I like simple things. I noticed the sale and I thought that it was pretty good, but it's not the price that I'm looking for. I just want something that allows you to draw freely and yeah ._. Auto Desk looks pretty good, doesnt look too complex for someone with a simple mind (like me) I'll look at trials, see how they are, but I just wanna know if theres any other programs that I should look at or anything like that.

    Pirating is to get software without a fee, but does not help you to decide what program you want to use. And why pirate a program of which you only use 5-10% of the features instead of a free program that has all you want?

    If I wanted to pirate something, I'd do it. The main reason I made this thread is for personal opinions of certain programs, not to get free programs. I'm not asking for any torrents.
