Sai, Photoshop, Manga studio: what program do you use?
« on: March 01, 2011, 02:56:34 PM »
What programs do you use? When  you like using them ?

I like Manga studio for the easy inking you can do with it and the tones it gives.

Photoshop is good for colors but I find it difficult to use for inking

Gimp: I will not ever use it anymore since it messed up all my pictures

What programs do you use?

I use Paint.net, but that's just because of the lack of Photoshop/Manga Studio on my computer. I'm too cheap to buy 'em.
Bros with Legomaestro since 2010. I think.

I use Paint tool sai for both sketching, lineart and clouring.

I find it a really fun freely software, and you got the nessesary tools to create what you want, maybe something is easier with photoshop and illustrator, but all the tools you need to create something similar is in sai, it just needs some layer techniques and stuff to make the same outcome.

I use manga studio for my panel works, I find it easier for average exppresionism and panel construction, and generally nice to create whole mangas. I will still draw in Paint tool sai though.

I never understood how to use Sai T__T

Manga studio is great for inking, tones, and coloring even if I haven't tested all its color tools possibilities.

They are very close to each other.

About inking, i like sai alot better though, it has some cool vector feature to the curve tool and the pen tool.

Does SAI works well with a pen tablet?

For me, it depends on the look I want. I use Sai mostly because of the ease of production but opencanvas is great for sketching. When I want a painted look, I mostly rely on Photoshop. For vector art, I use mostly Flash because I haven't learned how to use Illustrator yet.
I'm back~~~

I use Gimp <(o_O>) Simply because it's free. AND... it's free <.< It's not bad at all

Photoshop and Sai make a kick ass duo, but I really really dream of the day i become pro in vector art with Inkscape and Illustrator.

I use Photoshop for my more detailed works and works that take longer to finish. (Not always the same thing, believe me)

I love Sai for its more simpler feel and use it for basic sketches to character outlines (unshaded work)

As for vector art i have no use for it yet, since i'm still learning.

Yes, yes they do, but when you have a laggy pc like mine, it takes 10 minutes to load up a picture made in sai into photoshop xD
So i try to only use Sai, and photoshop for backgrounds if its something i cant do well in sai xD
Feel free to check out my art! It's all very cute I promise <3

Photoshop: Tried using it and failed...it was way to complex for me >.>

Sai: LOVE<3 It's great for making mulitple kinds of brushes. I love the colors it makes, as well as the option to use: markers, pen, oil, water color, etc. It also has textured paper (At least Paint Tool SAI does, I'm not sure about the other versions ^^;;) and canvas texture too.

GIMP: Another love of mine<3 After I miserably failed with Photoshop, I found GIMP, and used it for a lot of things. I like how I can do lineart and signatures on it easily.

Paint (Windows 7): I'm still getting used to Paint, it's a lot different than the Windows XP version, so this might take some time xDD

Photoshop + SAI ftw~~

I've used PS the most (but for other things), so I guess I'm the most familiar with it, but I love SAI for sketching~
I wanna try painting with them, but...I kinda suck at it._____.
I don't have MangaStudio but my bro does.....I don't really like it for some reason..
As for GIMP, tried it, but wasn't used to it, and the file compatibility was weird.D:
