I wanted to do a weekly questionnaire thing to get this group to interact with each other more. I meant to start this yesterday, but I was so wrapped up with the season premiere of Leverage that I couldn't focus to do it.

Anyway, what sort of program/tools do you use to make your art?

I, myself, am GIMP user. I plan to buy Paint Tool SAI, but I keep buying other things that aren't SAI. I don't even know how much it is.

I've just recently switched to Paint Tool SAI for my digital drawings. Before, I used Artrage 2, which is a really simple program to use if you're new to digital painting and drawing.

I started out using GIMP myself and ended up cursing at it every hour or so(though it was probably a combined effort between my horrible computer and the program). A little under a year ago I switched to Photoshop CS5 and am planning on getting Paint Tool SAI for better coloring sometime in the near future.
For traditional media it's copics or colored pencils.

Mhm, my first deviation was done on a free trial of Manga Studio Debut which I really want to buy. I did a couple of charcoal drawings using...well, charcoal (Staedtler :>). Right now I just scan in pencil drawings and do the digital line art/coloring on Photoshop CS5.
What's SAI like, anyway? I always hear people using the program but I've got no freaking idea what it actually is O.O

Since I just discovered this site this year. I like using the Da muro sometimes when I'm bored. Otherwise what you usually see me post is just pencils, color pencils, paper, posters, ...well you get it. Art materials. Sometimes I like using the ms paint program that comes with the computers, but that's usually just for doodling and passing time, like Da muro.

Definitely supporting this awesome idea.

I use photoshop cs4 for my digital work unless it's vector or animations. Animations I tend to use flash and toonboom, vector work i tend to use adobe illustrator.

For 3D art I use Maya, 3DS Max, ZBrush.

And of course traditional art i vary from paints, markers, pencils, pencil crayons, chalk, charcoal, etc etc. I like to dabble with a lot of different tools and programs :D

Yeah, Parker's defently changed a lot since the beginning. I think I like her more in the earlier episodes (especially the episode where they rescue the orphans. I think that's her strongest episode.)

I don't use a program...yet. I use a Staples' brand optiflow pen, regular copy paper, and perhaps a 0.07 mechanical pencil. That is all. In the past, I also used Roseart colored pencils and markers.

I mostly use traditional tools, (pencils, erasers, copic markers, etc,) but for digital coloring (and some scan-cleaning on occasion,) I use SAI. For editing purposes, I use a Corel program called Paintshop Pro Photo X2. Despite the long name, I find it's a nice substitute for the outrageously expensive Photoshop, and has a lot of the same features.

Hmmm since I've got my new scanner I've been able to do things traditionally again, so recently I've been drawing lineart with a mechanical pencil and scanning it onto the computer. I use Photoshop CS5 mainly and rarely ever touch SAI. I have used SAI in the past though because it has quite a few advantages over Photoshop, but it's far less efficient for me =/ In the recent manga I drew, I went for traditional manga tools such as crow qills and ink etc, although because I was lacking in traditional screentones, things had to be digital in that area again XD

I just use whatever I can - my parents don't want me to draw, so it's frustrating how I have to draw in secret.

I used Photoshop long time ago but then fell in love with SAI :D. I still do some adjustments in Photoshop sometimes but its a SAI addict...

when it comes to traditional I use mech. pencils, multiliners and markers+watercolour pencils but is not very good at colouring in general TTwTT
