Been having a difficult time trying to figure out what went wrong these past two weeks. Always about a girl, ha. Thought this might help me to find some answers. It didn't.

I actually started the base for this in Painter a few months ago. Finished up finals today and decided to knock out the rest this afternoon. A few hours total.

Corel Painter 10 and Photoshop CS5

Could you tell me what the main differencer are between Painter and Photoshop? I'm curious why people choose one over the other.

Sure thing, Scorpion. I should preface this by saying that I'm much more familiar with Photoshop than I am with Painter.

That being said; Photoshop is the industry standard across the board. Ask any studio, freelancer, or art hobbyist which digital painting program they use most and 9 times out of ten you'll hear "Photoshop." It's a fantastic all-in-one package for sketching, photo-editing, painting, compositing, etc and it does all of these things very well.

Painter is designed for just that, painting. It has a very nice brush pallet with many presets that mimic real, traditional media like oils, pastel, acrylics, pencil, charcoal, etc. It has a lot of the same options that Photoshop does with layer management, filters, glow effects, etc. But I've personally found that if I can use all those same tools, why not use the more widely used software?

I'm not sure what sort of work you'd like to get into career-wise. I tool a look at your gallery and you have some nice technical ability. If you plan to pursue a career in production art/concept art for movies and games, then I think it would be wise to use Photoshop from the beginning. In my experience working in a game studio, you might have to send your artwork to someone else to work on it. Or you might get someone else' artwork that you need to touch-up and finish. And although there is some compatibility when converting Painter files to Photoshop, it's les of a hassle to just keep everything in Photoshop file format (.psd)

If you plan on working freelance, or just like digitally painting in your spare time, there's no issue in using Painter. You might even like the interface better than Photoshop and find it easier to navigate.

If you're on the fence about buying one or the other, I'd try getting a free 30day trial of both and spend one month using nothing but Painter, and another month using nothinbg but Photoshop and seeing which one you like more. Let me know how it goes! And keep up the good work.

Thanks for the in-depth explanation! Actually I started to use Photoshop when I bought my Wacom tablet, and It's kinda getting to feel more and more familiar, although I'm obviously far from mastering it. Long way to go until i become a professional (or something like that) :)

Love your pics, BTW!

I have featured this deviation in my journal as a thumbnail because I like it and want my watchers to see it.

If you object to your work being displayed in this manor - I have every respect for you and will remove it as soon as I receive a note from you asking me to remove it.

Keep up the really great work.

Great to hear man! well thank you very much. Your gallery is awesome! That Diablo piece "Rain Dance" you did was quite amazing, I hope I'll be able to pull off something of that caliber someday. I am still to get somekind of art related work... I recently quit my day job to pursue an art freelance career.. so fingers crossed! :D

Thanks so much. And I definitely know what you're talking about. I'm in the same boat, trying to find work in an art-related field. Been freelancing a little bit but it's all been logo's and graphic design work, not concept art and illustration :/ So yes, fingers crossed for us both! :D

You're welcome! Yeah it's really hard. I saw you did some stuff for some music artists, that must be quite good though, to get a foot in that field? Yeh I see.. it's pretty much same with me though my logo's and graphic designs have been really really simple.. And it hasn't opened any doors.. But getting to illustrate book covers, that would be super sweet. I feel I should be able to land somekind of TCG work as well.. but yeah man, fingers crossed for us! Let me know when you get some concept/illustration job so I can congratulate you :D

Show the video time lapse in amazement. :jawdrop:

This is very inspirational.

I work traditional in acryl paint, but the last ten years i haven't made any new work.

I own a Trust Widescreen tablet, but I can't handle it. I'm thinking of taking up digital art, but I lack the skill. Advice would be welcome. I've seen tutorial on YouTube, but they are using different kinds of tablets...

Thanks much Joshua!

I never quite got used to using acrylics. The drying time was too fast for me work with so I much rather prefer oils.

Nearly everything that you work with in traditional media is transferable to digital. Color theory, value, line, form. The tablet is just another tool to work your ideas into reality, albeit a slightly intangible one. Haha.

But as far as tablets go, I'm still using an Intuos 3 medium (6"x8") that I bought 4 or 5 years ago. The newer Intuos 4 line has double the pressure sensitivity than the Intuos 3 line had, but to be honest after trying both I can't tell a difference.

I also use Photoshop CS4. I haven't made the upgrade to CS5 yet. That I am a bit bummed about because there's a few new tools like the mixer brush or the color picker wheel that are now hard to live without, lol.

I'd say give it a shot. It might take some getting used to looking at the monitor while moving your hand across the surface, but it becomes second nature after a while.

Thank you so much for your advice!

I use Gimp 2.6 instead of Photoshop (I got an older version of Photshop on my desktop computer) and it works fine. I think i can use that in combination with a tablet.

One of the reasons for me to step into the digital world is that a photo or scan of a painting always show a sleight loss of quality. For some reason a camera (digital or analog) cannot pick up the subtle color changes of my paintings...

It still hits red and black for sure, but I think the gradient helps to subdue the flat feeling of RED and BLACK
