How to choose a digital painting software

Written by nftlady

The first thing to keep in mind when choosing a digital painting software is your personal preference. If you find one good program that you like, stick with it. You may be tempted to switch between programs depending on what type of art you are doing (pencil sketching vs drawing anime characters), but the best artists learn how to use one program to its full potential.

There are a lot of good digital painting software programs out there, but the options vary depending on whether you have a Mac or PC. Some people argue that Macs are easier to use for digital art because they have access to more high-quality drawing applications, but some artists say it’s just as easy to use a PC.

Below is a list of some of the most popular digital painting software for both Mac and PC users:

Mac Users: Sketchbook Pro, ArtRage Studio Pro, Photoshop CS5 Extended

PC Users: PaintTool SAI, Artrage Studio, Photoshop CS5 Extended

In addition to those programs, you can find digital painting software on the Internet for free. Two of the most popular online digital painting software are SumoPaint ( ) and Brushes ( ).

Also, don’t forget about your tablet! If you have a tablet that’s capable of running Photoshop, then it’s more than capable of running other drawing programs.

Once you have your program, check out some digital painting tutorials online or at your local bookstore. There are tonnes of books on digital art, so pick one up and start learning!

If you’re just getting started with digital painting, try switching between different software to see which one you like best. After a while, you’ll find your niche.
