So I’ve been wanting to do some vectoring/line art/art in general. I have a drawing tablet, and I’d like to know if any program can do vectoring, as well as regular art. I’m willing to spend up to maybe $250 dollars.

If you have the money to spend, you might want to look at Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, but they are relatively pricy options.

By its very nature, vector art work and “drawing” (raster; ie: pixel based) art work use different structures. You are unlikely to find a program that can do both pure vector and pure raster together. However, if you are looking for software to do each of these things, you may try Inkscape for Vector art work and GIMP for drawing.

If you want a dedicated drawing application, get MyPaint, which is an open source drawing software. GIMP, IIRC, can import MyPaint files for further fine-tuning and touch up.

Hi, I just visited this thread because I’m interested in making computer art casually. However my on-line expirence mostly consists of just playing flash games and some basic HTML. Is it possible there could be a dumbed down version for people completely new to this? Although I could possibly pick out all the parts of the guide one-by-one it just feels that the guide is for less of reading as a whole and more of filling in what you don’t know. For instance I know the definition of “brush” but I have no idea how you explained it. Perhaps highlighting or bolding what is essential for making art such as basic terms or links and adding some FAQs for people who want to just make something simple like a GIF?
