What digital art programs do you main people of /ic/?
Question I have
I have CS6 (le pirate meme and the master collection), what is the difference between CS6, CC 2014, and CC 2015? Is there any benefits I'm missing out from the later versions compare to CS6?
Krita a best.
3.0 is coming out next month I think, with a ton of new features, the most prominent being animation tools. And even as it is right now, it's more than competent alternative to ps for painting.
I heard even professionals are hyped about Krita, everyone hates CC because of the cost and getting your data cucked while the development of actual features for photosop is stagnating. Being able to move to Linux is another cut cost as well. I have big hopes.
I've been messing with Krita but it doesn't feel as intuitive as say PT Sai so I have to mess around with the keys and rebind them (I got used to default photoshop). Still a nice program.
I use Krita, developers are bros and react swift for opensource community, their only problem is that it is written on qt, which results in shitty performance on windows with bigger resolutions, brushes and perspective grid assistant. No problem on linux though so when Microsoft tightens their grip on older versions of Windows I know where to go.
Anybody have that problem where the wacom driver fails in PS, and the input is jittery and raw as fuck?
Clicking out of PS and clicking back in fixes it, but it's annoying as fuck. Been trying to figure out what causes it.

>can't finish my drawing because shit program
>don't feel like learning a new program at 5 in the fucking morning
Photoshop is a clunky mess and sai is already on my desktop so I guess I'm learning paint tool
what do ya'll niggs think about GIMP? I've been a krita painter forever but I just noticed that the developers for GIMP are still extending the digital painting functionality on GIMP's dev branch (2.9.2)
Krita's gonna feel stale for me for a while since development is focused on the animation toolkit, so I'm browsing around to get a fresh taste of what Krita's open source competition is like.
Any experienced GIMP painters here? What version you on? I'm on 2.8 but am in the process of compiling 2.9.2. What's the GIMP experience like compared to other programs? I've only ever used GIMP for photo-editing, what have I been missing?
Also, it's worth mentioning that a new version of MyPaint just got released (1.2.0, jan 2016). The changelog isn't that interesting but I'm happy it's still being worked on.
I use both photoshop and krita
cs6 for learning new stuff (since it's so wide used) and krita for actual drawing (it's easier to find a tool or alternatives to it in krita after I've learn how it's supposed to work in photoshop) I just like how brushes are in krita, more artist- friendly
I've been using GIMP for over 12 years, and I'm super psyched about what I've read in the changelog. Free canvas rotation, 16/32bit color, and better brushes (from mypaint) are things I thought I'd never see in GIMP. The lack of those things is one of the main reasons I dual boot to Windows to use Clip Studio Paint.
Krita gets a lot of mentions on /ic/, but I can't stand the "modern" looking UI. It looks nice at the cost of functionality. Gimp let's me put UI elements wherever the hell I want when using single-window mode, or I can make any UI dock a separate window and let my window manager handle them. The last time I tried Krita it didn't even have a functional navigation window and the devs apparently think they know better than I do where I want the brush dynamic controls to go.
I'll be compiling 2.9 later today and post a screenshot of what my usual GUI setup is. I have no idea why they don't have a PPA for new releases.
I like MyPaint a lot, but besides the canvas manipulation features and awesome brush engine GIMP just does more.
I use PS for coloring and MS for lineart. Painting feels a lot better and PS but inking is shitty with those shoelace brushstrokes.
M-muh OC donutsteel
I began with krita, and then I decided to try photoshop. I didn't really like photoshop to be honest, kritas interface seemed much more clean, and the keybinds are way easier to manage in my opinion. Oh, and the brush engine is meh compared to krita.
Maybe I should try it again one day.
Hey /ic/, I was using Clip Studio Paint EX recently and my tablet started acting up so after a year of not updating the drivers I decided to do so.
The problem now is that the software's UI is really big and I can't figure out why or how to change it, anyone know how?
1. liquify tool is more responsive, which is something, because that's the one ps feature that no other software can do right
2. finally, you can overscroll without being in fullscreen mode
other than that cc2015 has the very same virtues and defects than cs6. plus a ton of useless web designer shit.
Can I ask here for help? I just got a Huion tablet and it absolutely refuses to work with SAI. It just leaps to my other monitor. Every other program works just fine but SAI and Huion just refuse to be on the same screen.
Tried it, among other fuckeries. I managed to get the cursor to appear on SAI but it doesnt leave behind any pen mark. Already packed up the thing for a refund though and ordered a wacom. Its fucking expensive but atleast it will work.
