Actually, even though Photoshop is an amazing program, incredibly usefull and gives excellent results.. I wont vote for it...

I choose Deluxe paint.
This program was around a good while ago, before it was possible to have really outstanding features like the others. However it still managed to do a great deal.

All the basic tools that come with modern programs were there: straight lines, circles, fill.
It used a second fill feature for the right mouse button.
It even did animation! And well too!

I believe this program was way ahead of it's time. Therefore I give it the credit.

(Of course, I could be wrong about its release date and its actually rather poor... But I cant be bothered to do my research)

It was my first computer based drawing program too

I went for good ol' PShop which I'm still learning to use properly. I'll get there eventually.
Maybe Gideon or Markie could knock out a quick colouring tutorial or something (hint, hint :wink: )

I can create good pixel art in MS Paint because of its simplicity, but I use Adobe Photoshop to edit my scanned drawings.
Overall, Photoshop is better.

I do half my work in PaintShop, the rest in MS paint. ^^ But Paintshop screws up less.

Photoshop because it gives me less trouble than PSPro.

That and I can do a quick&dirty in 30mins with the luvly lil' bugger.

*Amends* Well 60 mins actually, 30 for drawing, 30 for coloring, or some distribution like that.

It's all good, Adobe knows what they are up to.

Actually, once I leave the realm of pencil and paper I get lost. hehe

I have new respect for MSPaint though, Thanks to Inu. Photoshop has shown, for a long time, that it can be used to produce amazing pics but when a limited progam can be manipulated to show stuff as fantastic as Inu has shown us then I say it's been underestimated and deserves a bit more credit.

I chose Photoshop, since that's what I use the most (although it's a cheapo, limited version. Can't afford the full version, sadly...) It's not really that hard to use, once you get the hang of it. I also want to learn how to use Painter, since I've seen some awesome artwork created with it. Of course, my first priority is learning the basic rules of anatomy and perspective. After all, no matter how great the program is that one uses to color with, it's worthless if the actual drawing is terrible.

I've just remembered something about Photoshop which I love.

The way it says:

"Could not perform (such and such), because of a program error"

Its great!

I mean, just how many programs are there out there that admit when -they- are wrong! :wink:
