I mostly use photoshop but recently tried manga studio. MS is actually pretty good, but with a huge setback by turning your simple activities into a complicated puzzle. You must literally gottta see 'outside the box' in order to get around easily.

As of yet, I'm using Photoshop for standard B/W art, but I tend to use Illustrator for color art, because I really do prefer vector graphics when dealing with color...

I'm not a very good artist yet, though...

Re: Sai, Photoshop, Manga studio: why do you use them?

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.

well having money to buy them might help for me lol! One day! Ill get photoshop!!!! I love photoshop. but i really can't figure out any of the others.

I use Manga Studio EX 4.0. I just got it a few days ago so I'm still learning everything, so I don't really know what I'll be using it for. But I have created some pretty decent drawings from scratch on it (lines are still a little shaky, using a graphics tablet takes some getting used to!).

I mainly use SAI nowadays, it's easy and intuitive to use and I like the interface better. I use Photoshop for some hardcore editing and some other larger projects like poster design but now I rarely use Photoshop.

I experimented with Painter 11 too, it's kinda hard to use so I left it....
I was on my way to conquer the world when I got distracted by something shiny.

 ::) Since I am way new to this digital art thing, and not alot of practice yet.... I find Manga Studio easy to use,  I learned on it, but I do use Photoshop for all kinds of other things.

I use Photoshop for all the steps (sketches, lines, colors). I also like Painter but it's been a long time since I used it ^^"

I use Paint tool Sai for sketching, coloured photos, etc.
I have Manga studio, and i'll use it if i ever need to ink/tone a drawing, or make a manga page!
