    Like Ian,
    photoshop and lots of images to create depth and movement.
    Also use flash for some vector stuff if needed.. I have Illustrator but I cant figure the damn thing out.. The comp in the other room has lightwave, bryce and sopme other stuff that I can use if needed for 3d stuff, but this comp is so old it wont run the big 3d renderers.

    yes. especially if you have a tablet... using a mouse with it sorta sucks, but as a person that'd rather paint/sketch than use a computer... painter is aweseome. The interface takes a bit to get used to though, but it has layers and what not just like Photoshop, as well as full support for photoshop's layers.

    it's just... dunno. I just like the natural media brushes in it.

    even supports video too! yeah... I know, I sound like a painter salesperson; however, I've been using it since version 2.0... almost as long as I've been using photoshop - which I've used since 2.5...

    Cheers Samurai!

    Gerbick - mmmm - I'm just about to get a tablet, I may have to extend the budget a little (an early xmas prezzie ) - you're the fifth person who I've spoken to who rates it.

    for thought

    painter is cool, but only if you have a tablet, it would be terrible without one.

    though, i've only got classic (came w/ my wacom), might be different in the newer versions.

    canvas

    heeey... another canvas user

    andy, are you asking about programs because you are planning to buy something new, or just out of interest?
    i think you get the idea that photoshop is definitely the preferred option, as it has heaps of depth and pretty much does most things that you want... I haven't personally used painter but i guess it's fairly cool as well

    however, as you note, there are some of us that use other progs and i think that as long as your app has the standard image tools and layer capabilities, you can make some fairly cool stuff, but perhaps not the really complex effects

    i find that for me, the most limiting factor is my imagination, not the program i use
