I’ve been working on a oil portrait for my friends. Real paints! (And so far I’ve only tried to hit the ctrl z once. I’m very proud of myself.)

I’ve been reading a book on illustrator, which I love. I think I like it more than photoshop. I am learning new things every day. I like that. After I get illustrator down, I’m going to throw myself into After Effects. I’ve only done animation in that, in Alex sez you can do artwork, too. How cool is that.
So all of this got me thinking about digital art. I just love it. The more I learn, the more excited I get. I am wondering all the programs that people use. What do you think of Photoshop? Is Corel Painter going to be outstripped by photoshop? (How many people use Painter, anyway?) What about sketchbook pro? And has anyone used Dreamweaver? I’m curious. I’ve added a poll to the sidebar of the blog, so if you have a sec, vote n maybe post a comment of what you like using best.
