    I'm a digital artist, and I've been using Photoshop to create my work ever since I got into drawing digitally. Recently however, I've started using Paint Tool SAI more, and I really like it a lot.

    Which programs do you use to draw? Which ones are your favourite and why?

    This depends on the machine you're on, a desktop system, iOS tablet, dedicated wacom system?

    I use Photoshop for almost everything.
    For video it's after effects.

    For instagram stuff photoshop will do just fine.

    But freehand drawing on the iPad Pro for example, you can look into sketchbook or apps like that. They're quite impressive.

    I've heard that Paint Tool Sai is the best when it comes to drawing with a wacom tablet. I don't think it's a great software when it comes to special effects though. Not an expert, but I assume that a mix of softwares does the trick? First draw it up on SAI and then do some fine tuning and effects on photoshop? The only potential problem I see are different file types? So you'd need to be able to save your file as psd in SAI I think?

    I have been using Affinity Photo and Designer for a few months now, and I can't wait to try a wacom tablet with it - curious to see how well or poorly it works.

    wacom tablets are generally pretty great! Can't wait for you to try it
