Quote from: "Darknight_88"in b4 the pig appears with his propaganda...Indeed, its done by a computer program.There are several options, like Adobe Photoshop (any version. The most recent it's CS3, but Adobe Photoshop 7 is fine too), Adobe Illustrator, Flash or...meh...Inkscape. . There's also Gimp, which is kinda like Photoshop (but in my experience, not as good).Both Gimp and Inkscape are free. The others *not*...I have used Photoshop 7 for a while and I can tell you it's a great program. I'm not experienced in other software, but I'm sure all of them are great (well...inkscape is a RAM hog...).
Quote from: "CaptBrenden"Right, again, in before pig propoganda.I use adobe photoshop for mine. However, it depends on what exactly you want to do with your artwork and what sort of effects you want to apply. What the "pig" uses are programs for producing vector art. they store image data mathmaticly and thus resize will with no distortion and are relitivly small size wise.. but what you can do with it lacks.. Flash games and such are made with vector graphics (and concequentualy is a good program for making vector art, along with other adobe/macromedia programs) Like i said, dont know much about it, since i dont do vector.Photoshop is an advanced art tool. Thus, its complicated, but when learned it will allow you to produce so much more then vector graphics can. Here is an example of something drawn nearly compleatly in adobe (exept for the hand drawn sketch that was scanned, but you could draw your sketch digitaly with a tablet)Ill leave an example of vector art up to the pig, since Im sure he will chime in later.Ill say this tho, photoshop and similar programs are better for "soft shading" and vector ive noticed tends to be better at the "cell shading" aka cartoon shading (shade blocks rather then smooth transition between colors)So, to aid you in picking a program we need to know a few things. First, what do you want to do with it, and second, what are your resorces (funds) for it?What do you want to do?draw comics?draw anime style art?and then, how serious are you about it and and whats your funds look like? If your serious about doing digital artworks I would saggest getting a good program, scanner, tablet and photo printer. However, as you mentioned a flea market, Im guessing you dont have the funds for such -_-
