jake2k Posted July 21, 2007 Share Posted July 21, 2007 Hello everyone, I was thinking today and it occured to me that the only reason im making decent digital art is because of this program and the members of this forum. When I started gaining interest in gfx all I had to work with was M$ Paint so needles to say I wasnt improving much at all, then I acquired a version of PS and after about a day I found that it was way to complicated for someone with a short attention span like me. Seeing as how I really liked doing gfx but did not have the right tools I thought that the end was close on this hobby, but then someone suggested Paint.NET and I quickly downloaded it and tried it out. I was amazed at how easy it was to learn and operate, after messing around with it a bit I turned to this forum for the tuts, plugins, and help. Now a little over a year later im making art that I would never have dreamed of being able to do and it's all thanks to you guys. Thanks to Rick and the other developers for making such a wonderfull program and thanks to the forum members for making great tutorials, amazing plugins, and for all the insight and knowledge that has been shared, not to mention the inspiration for many of my peices in "The pictorium". To this day I can say that 99% of my digital art has been made in Paint.NET and I often have people ask me what version of PS I use haha. I look forward to the day when this program will be the better alternative to PS, I believe that it is very possible as long as development continues the way it has. I am now looking to persue a carreer in digital arts and I know that means I will have to bite the bullet and learn how to use other programs like PS but just know that if I do succeed in my goals to make a living off of gfx I will always use PDN when I can and will give thanks to it when allowed. Thanks again to everyone here, Jacob D. Tompkins Quote ^Click to visit my Flickr Gallery^ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
