    Re: In need of advice...

    Photoshop is indespensible, but if you are talking about making these things from scratch- pen and tablet work or hand drawn scan rendering, then I suggest adobe illustrator. If you ever plan on making a living from art, get both (although you'll end up owing your first born to adobe).

    If I can suggest something that is more valuable than programs, it's color theory. The biggest mistake one can make is in the poor choice of color scheme. You can have a nicely composed image ruined by non-complimenting colors. For quick reference, you can always use a web color chart like THIS ONE , but it won't help you understand what's truly happening.

    Photoshop is what I use, and I am fairly happy with it. I suppose it really is your own descision in the end which program you think you would like to use. ^^

    I have to second the GIMP. It's very comparable to Photoshop and it's worth your time to check out.

    Also check out PAINT.net, a free replacement for Microsoft Paint (XP machines only).

    I personally feel GIMP is better the PAINT.net, but I have both installed.

    I would only get photoshop if you feel it's worth the money. GIMP will do everything Photoshop does, but some people find it harder to use. I think you would do fine with it.

    Yes - I think I will experiment until I find the program that will suit my needs. Until then, I will stick with what I've got, even if it's crap.. LoL I'll be posting some wallpapers and sigs up in my Gallery, if you ever feel an itching to take a gander... Thanks for all the advice and reccomendations
