OP, my apologies for this tangent... Should have written "laugh to self" as to my stubbornness and comfort in one tool over others, what a person chooses to use is up to them. I am a bit surprised by your response. So if Adobe Photoshop where to not exist tomorrow, then many careers would be over too....really? I think what I hear you saying is that many production pipelines seem to be founded upon Photoshop, Maya and so on, and indeed that still seems mostly valid...for now. IMHO it is results that matter, not the tool you use. Is it necessary to do so on a Tablet PC, or on Windows or Mac? Much of the same functionality can be done in other apps on other devices too. I guess I could justify my position, in regards to device of choice, as the pen hardware cannot be changed, but what software you use can. Most of the experienced professionals I work with have plenty of flexibility in the tools they use. For example: For texturing 3D assets, Photoshop was the standard for decades, and now Substance Painter is proving to be much better at it, Photoshop is not required at all. For painting illustrations, Corel Painter + others. For photo manipulation Affinity Photo plus others.
