    I need a new progam to draw with, ideas?

    I'm looking for a new program to draw with, I've been using the photoshop CS, and I've enjoyed it, but feel it's time to give something else a shot.

    I'm not someone of alot of talent when it comes to drawing, but I do like to try nevertheless, just for some fun. So I don't need anything too complex.

    Just so there's some pictures in this thread, here's two of my more recent attempts, they've been in this years drawing comp thing.A bit scrappy, and frankly bringing up pics I haven't looked at for a while makes me see so many stuff ups.... anyway, any input welcome.

    GIMP is a powerful open source editor that's completely free. GIMPshop is a fork that incorporates a photoshop-esque interface. Paint.NET is a more simplistic but still useful editor that's also free.

    Not too fussed on the cost just yet, so they don't have to be free.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out.

    Is there anything considered to be better than photoshop. I don't need 3D models, but something more adaptable to car design would be nice, or something with some cool effects.

    A friend of mine recommended Corel Painter because it is the most relative with drawing traditionally.

    Corel also seems more artsy with its style than Photoshop, and the type of artwork I've seen people do with it is rather nice and very vibrant.

    I think the newest version out is Corel Painter 11, and the full version is about $279.00.

    Here's the link:

    And here's Corel's main website:

    ArtRix uses Google SketchUp. His renderings always look quite good.

    I use Paint Shop Pro. I also have Photoshop and Corel Graphics Suit, but I hardly ever use them. Paint Shop Pro is just simple, easy and natural for my style of chopping and rendering.

    I like to be fast and spontaneous because light is messy and random, so I like to use an impressionistic messy style with light reflections. Looks much more like real photos and less like artificial renderings....
