Ironically, my uncle is an artist and he gave me one of his old Macs to use with an Adobe CS5 package pre-installed for me. I wish I could get up the courage to try Illustrator, but I've seen so many people use Photoshop, so that's what I stick to.

I use SAI. I just love its pen pressure and simple interface. Feels very smooth.

I like certain tools CS6 has but for some reason I don't like its interface and brush tool.

I like Clip Studio Paint, it seems like a combination of the good things of SAI and PS. But I'm still *censored*ty at drawing I'm not sure whether I should get it or not D:

I've never heard of Clip Studio Paint. When you say 'get it' do you mean buy it?  You may be better off just using freeware software. Unless paying for it will motivate you to take it more seriously...

I use gimp. Photoshop CS2 was a nice thing to fall back to. And I know of one mordern artist who uses it to amazing effect. But my harddrive was too full to support it.

It's like a downloadable version for Manga Studio and yeah it costs money. The motivation part is what kept me from buying it lol. Maybe after a year or two of practice I'll be able to convince myself that I can utilize that thing efficiently xD

Clip studio paint is what most pro doujin artists use. It has a learning curve so be prepared

I use Photoshop most often, mainly cause of the brush customizing, but later I started buying brushes other people made too, they are better then mine most of the time, and off course after buying those brushes I kinda just stick to photoshop after ^3^
I also started learning Clip studio paint, apparently the next generation of manga studio, so far has been great, but I haven't get used to it yet, didn't anything to share that's mad in clip studio :P

Clip studio paint is, as far as I've been told, exactly the same as manga studio except targeted at Japanese artists.
Also, MS is great for making manga (XD really?) but CSP is more for individual pictures and illustrations.

I'm not completely sure about this, please don't shoot me, it's just what I've seen from speedpaints and other artists' work

I use sai and photoshop. I only draw in sai. Photoshop is just for color editing and blurring. PS doesn't have brushes that can blend while painting, and I need that.

You could do that easily in photoshop.
Just takes alot of of tinkering and knowledge on what the settings do. I know. I use to work in photoshop in my youth. Sai is nice, I enjoy it for quick sketches every now and then.
The colouring is basic enough to get things speedy and fast.

Manga studio 5 has the most in what I'm looking for. So I focus primarily on it.

Manga Studio and Clip Studio Paint are the exact same program.
Manga Studio is the hard copy (you get a cd).
And Clip Studio Paint is the digital download.

I use Manga Studio.

Photoshop only. I also used to use Corel Painter and Deleter's manga software, but I think Photoshop has the best of them all in one place.

I use Sketch Book Pro and Inkscape. I am not an expert on these software but they get the job done. I basically use Inkscape for logos only though. I will also never use Gimp again. *fistbump*

So I started using Manga Studio 5.  Feel like I have gone from trying to make a line to just drawing like I would on paper

I use manga studio, photoshop, illustrator, and painter. Each have their own unique usefulness !
