As I mentioned in a previous thread I just recently found my old copy of paint shop pro9. but i can’t find my cd key. So i didn’t even atempt to install it yet. not exactly excited about buying a new program though i guess I could buy the newest version of paint shop pro, I really want a hardcore, intuitive paint program exclusive for sketch/painting instead of a general photo enhancing software like photo shop/paint shop pro/gimp I really prefer a program that specializes in drawing and digital hand painting etc.
I was looking at the free paint programs as an alternative. Can any of them compete with psp? or even surpass it in the paint tools? such as graphic effects, brushes, shaders, textures, blur effects, glows etc. a good size community help forum is always nice too.
I was considering My paint, Pixia, Artrage, Twisted brush, deep paint and pencil. Are any of those better than psp in terms of paint effects, features?are there any other better programs? I really want something that can simulate that glossy dynamic strokes like you see in graphic novels.
what do you all think? I’m planning on getting a sketch tablet with my birthday money and I want a Awsome paint program to go with it? well…as awsome as a free program can get, hehe :yes:
