    Besides being an excellent package it is also supported by a very credible forum.

    From my experience here are the best programs for drawing:

    1) Sketchbook Pro for drawing the rough and in pencil.

    2) openCanvas for colouring.

    Yes...it's wonderful, and is quickly becoming an industry standard. If you've never gotten around to trying this one I definately recommend it. Also, when you couple if with the free Zsketcher plug in, it also becomes a very formidable sketching program.

    I really wouldn't go out of my way to get Open Canvas... If you are in any way serious about doing art for a living, get a version of Photoshop, even if it's an older version, and learn that for coloring. Open Canvas is cute, but not useful enough to pay what they are asking for IMO.

    Even a Photoshop 6 (probably less than $75 on ebay) would be WAY more useful than OC because of it's much more extensive image manipulation abilities.

    do what I did:

    1. get a leftover unused copy of photoshop 6: $70
    2. when you are ready upgrade to CS (now it would be CS2): $150
    3. ?????????
    4. Profit!

    this let me get my feet wet with photoshop, then get full bore into the latest setup.

    Sketchbook Pro is a program I've used only a little, but I am very much a fan.

    If your drawing style is similar to me, which is a bit Japanese, then I highly recommand Manga Studio 3.
    It contains every tools to help you draw like a pro, including models. Plus simple export to various programs like photoshop with all the layers info intact.
