Hey everyone, Christine here again. C:

Soooo I'm finally getting back into the digital art scene and I need a little help here. I normally use GIMP for everything and then do any touchups/watermarks/font effects in Photoshop (I have PSE7). Yes, I know it's a little silly to use something like GIMP when I have Photoshop under my belt... but bear with me, eh?

Please don't suggest Paint Tool SAI. I try not to download things illegally and I'm not dropping sixty bucks into the official version. However, if you know anything similar... I'd love the suggestion.

Things I really like are good pressure control (I have a tablet that actually works now, haha), a variety of basic and textured brushes, an easily accessible colour palette, and basically just a really user-friendly interface. I'm not super keen on spending a lot of time having to learn a new program.

Oh and obviously the basic things like layer control, opacity, etc. are cool. Filters I'm not so worried about; I've got Photoshop for that.

So, suggestions, folks? Help me out here please! C:

Hey there, I'm Christine, and welcome to my DeviantART. I post a little bit of everything here, but primarily traditional, mixed media, and digital arts; as well as prose writing.

I have OCs from many different eras, including the 1970s America, 1500s England, ancient Rome and Greece, and a number of fantasy locations inspired by various locations around the world.

My biggest fandoms right now are Pokémon, Star Trek, and Stargate. I love a lot of things, though, so you could see just about anything here! Thanks for stopping by.

(P.S. I love llamas! :llama:)


roleplay4life has started a donation pool!
569 / 800
Okay, so I guess people need an incentive to give me points, so here it is:
- Donate five or more points, I'll give you a request. That's right, a REQUEST. And it will be completed, LOL.
- Less than five points and I'll feature you as an "Artist of the Entry" in my journal (yes AotE is coming back!). It's a feature of you and two of your art pieces, and it's cool.

And of course, all donations go towards helping one of your fellow Deviants!

I LIKE LLAMAS TOO!!! :heart:
