  1. The teaser was very engaging, although the credit being longer than the actual teaser was a little letdown. I've always wanted to try out GIMP Paint Studio, atm I'm mainly using the vanilla GIMP in my workflow, but I see that it could be more efficient for painting.

  2. I already use GPS for about 1 year for all my concept art stuff and I really love it. The only thing is gimp itself. sometimes it seems it is just in your way with it`s interface, but hey, people also use maya, right? :D

  3. I've tried it in the past and liked it, but at the time wasn't enough to put into my pipeline. Perhaps as I move more into using open source and "free" software for my projects this could/should be the next step and drop Photoshop from my creative list ...

  4. Congratulations Ramon for getting GPS out!

    @Jack - Have you tried Krita? Apparently the windows version is coming later this year, but if you either run linux, or don't mind trying a live cd, it's built from the ground up for painting. I've heard that earlier versions were a bit crashy, but the current one works really well. The website is

  5. @ Tadd - I'd recommend trying GIMP for at least a month before making a decision. I came from Photoshop to Gimp, and when I first switched, just the difference in keyboard shortcuts drove me CRAZY. I *hated* that I couldn't hold down space to pan and a million other things. Then over time, as I got used to it, I discovered that many of Gimps ways of doing things were actually *better*, for example pan with middle mouse instead of space meant you could do it all with just the one hand on the mouse / stylus. Today I love my Gimp. If you'd asked me 1 week into trying it though it would have been a very different story.

    I still hate multi window mode (after 8 years(!) though. Bring on Gimp (Painter) 2.8 :D
