I'm just wondering which programs and what tools those of you drawing anime and manga use.

I have used the iPad with Sketchbook Pro, but I don't feel it's precise enough - or maybe it's just me?

...so what type of tablet do you use, and do you like it? What software are you using, does it it work well, and if not, what software would you consider buying.

Thanks!!

Paint tool SAI - for digital drawings
GIMP - for editing traditional sketches
Photoshop - to add tones (for webmangas), Texts, background etc...
Posted 10/10/10
GIMP, Manga studio, MS Paint, and plain old pencil and paper

for digital art, you def need a tablet.
i use wacom stuff, which has been good to me so far =)
hmm i started w/ adobe cs3, and i use cs4 now which i think is pretty beginner friendly.
SAI i briefly used, but... it seems a bit too simple imo to use alone
after a while, i switched from cs4 to corel (until corel gave me problems) but i use both now, since both have their own pros+cons.
my suggestion is to start with adobe tho.

hmm^^
A tablet is needed if you want to go through details but you can achieve nice art with just a mouse an keyboard though

personnaly I'm using Photoshop CS3, Painter IX, Manga Studio
If you don't want to pay for a license there are freewares which are really handy and can produce really good stuff:
I'm using MyPaint , Pixia ,Gimp , Inkscape
