hey guys and gals. i’ve been teaching myself how to color in ps, but i want to take a course at RISD.
i’m wondering whats the better program to color line art? sfmc, your colors in the alex vs yun/yang and the charlie/rose images come to mind, and mr twelve your latest “spirits” is almost exactly what i’m going for.
i have photoshop and coral painter…whatever the newest version is (9 i think?)
i know my way around ps pretty well, but i’m LOST in painter.
painter seems like it might produce better results?
basically i’m gonna take one of the courses, can you guys give me advice as to which you think will help most?

Maybe you paint in the traditional manner with oils, acrylics or tempera colors. Perhaps you prefer oil sticks or pastels or ink. But a digital era calls for new tools, and Corel Painter is the ideal supplement (if not substitute) for the actual mixing of liquid pigments. The interface is intuitive and responsive, allowing for onscreen brushing, streaking and layering of an inexhaustible palette of colors. With a Wacom digital tablet pen in hand, students begin either with a direct digital drawing or a scanned sketchbook image. Through a combination of demonstration and hands-on practice, participants explore a wide range of possibilities for digital artistic expression. Completed work is exhibited electronically or printed to archival papers, even canvas. Indeed, your painting will be ready for show while your fellow artists are still cleaning their brushes.
