So last week I bit the bullet so to speak and spent a little more then I wanted to get myself a cintiq. Figured if I wanted to advance my art skills I would need to start working digitally. I've had doc show me how his worked and always was impressed by how much easier it made things. Well I picked it up last night and with docs help had it up and running with only a few hiccups.( like forgetting to plug in the USB and wondering why the pen wouldn't work)
So the question I have for any of you art types out there are what are some good tips / programs to use with this thing? I'm pretty much the newb when it comes to using it. Currently I have docs ancient copy of paintshop and a full version of twisted brush. Was considering trying a trial version of photoshop to see if it had tools more in line with how I think it should work. Both of the programs I mentioned have various things about them I really like, but I'm having trouble with one because I need to reverse or reassign a function but seem to be unable to do it how I think it should be. Could very well be a me thing.
Any input will be welcome. I have a cintiq 27qhd touch. (Loving the hand commands btw)
