Buying Adobe Photoshop CS6.

by
Iv been spending the past few months thinking of buying CS6 and now after making my own art im now working to get a copy to help out with my art. i know its more so about me and not a new program and im fine with that. making two art pics thus far has been fun and enjoyable and its something i would like to continue making. for the time being ill download the 30 day trial and meet up with some friends and learn how to use it right.  

If any one has Adobe Photoshop CS6 id like to hear your views on it. like is it 1st time artist friendly? dose it help out with making complex art? or any thing that comes to mind.

From the features iv seen so on on Adobes main site its quite impressive. win or lose with CS6 ill have some fun in the end any ways.

Thanks for your time. ^^_

I wouldn't say photoshop cs6 is newbie friendly, also it's more for photo editing... I'd say SAI is probably the best you can get when it comes to just drawing, if that's what you look for that is.

Theirs a lot of programs they have for this and that and its not at all easy to find out witch one would best suit me. for a while now iv been trying out Adobe Photoshop CS2 for drawing and CS6 has the same as cs2 and more. iv been watching Adobe TV  on all the new tools and such and theirs a lot of interesting stuff. i all so have been trying SAI but im not sure if i care for it. right now im use SAI trial version 1.1.0:8 is that what your using Unistar? if any thing if i don't like the 30 day trial of CS6 then ill keep trying with SAI but for the most what im looking for is a program that can assist me as much as possible.

Thanks for the comment Unistar. ^^_

Well, both launny and i use SAI for all our artwork, simply because it is very open for the artist to use, if you're just gonna draw, go with SAI, no need to use money on features you're not gonna use anyway, photoshop elements is a simple version of photoshop, maybe consider that if you like adobe's programs better.

Well i am more used to Adobe but in the end it all comes down to learning to use the program. the main reason im thinking of going with Adobe is that i have friends near by that know their way around it but even so i do like how simple SAI is and have swapped between using adobe and SAI on my last pic with cream i use adobe cs2 for some things then swapped back and forth to SAI and adobe. maybe i can find vids online on how to use SAI correctly.

Well im sure ill find something to use sooner or later. till then i think i slacked off enough. time to give SAI another go. :)

Photoshop is way overkill and very expensive for someone just starting out.  If you're serious about buying the software, give Photoshop Elements a try, or stick with an older version of Photoshop for now.  There's other programs I could recommend, like Paint.NET ($Free), but they're still more basic than Photoshop.

If you want to paint and experiment with color, give ArtRage Studio ($30) at try.  I don't consider it a "serious" art program for many technical reasons, but it's a lot of fun.

As for SAI, it's a love/hate thing.  Some people swear by it.  Personally, the GUI drives me nuts and I can't stand it.

Focus on improving your drawing skills before you start spending lots of money.

Thanks for the info Waccoon. aye one of my problems is that im not sure what programs are good and free to use and or if paying for a good one is worth it. finding a program that i like will make drawing a lot more fun and make getting used to the tools of witch ever program i use all the more enjoyable. ill try what you have listed and hopefully find one that suits me.

Thanks for your time and awesome icon Waccoon. ^^_

Also, I dunno how good it is for actual drawing, but consider GIMP. It's free, after all. I use it all the time to color.
If you're feeling adventurous and you've got $3 and an iOS device, also consider ArtStudio. See, I have no tablet. >_> But I have an iPod Touch, and I've been using that nifty little app for over a year and a half to draw. There's a free version if you wanna check it out. Best dollar I've ever spent in the AppStore (it was $1 when I got it. x3)!
