Excellent review!
 :thumb_up:

All software has strong and weak points...That's why I do not use any single program for every aspect. I used Project Dogwaffle years ago when it was freeware and honestly wasn't all that impressed by it. I didn't really see anything in it that couldn't be done in Photoshop, so I never ventured further with it.

As far as cost wise...I can see where there would be appeal to those one a budget. That was never an issue for me though so it had no bearing on my decisions concerning any program. ZBrush has freehand painting abilities as well as the use of painting in liquid clay....So...PD would most likely have very little room in my workflow.

Something else I don't like about it is that when you make a layer and put it on Screen or Soft Light, it's either really dark or really bright. You can turn them down with a slider, but it's not a transparency in the same way layers are transparent in Photoshop.
Yes Ravyn, it's true; it's one of reasons for why i use few this software for the moment. I have difficulties to control the bright of layers.

The first thing that i try on other pc with Howler (the free Howler for Halloween), i finally must record layer by layer, and end in Photshop.
Just a test to see the use.
I will post it in our gallery in a moment.
But when i find brushes, i like them  :thumb_up:

dRaCX i see a good and even excellent point to this software: render in 3D for landscapes. Yes i'm not good in for the moment, but not difficult with little time i think.

Thanks for your reviews of my review so far - LOL. 

As far as painting goes, one main thing Howler and Artist have over Photoshop going for them is the Particle Brushes. They're really pretty cool. You have to have a pretty light hand with them though if you just want to use them for deco in a scene as I did above...especially the 'shrubberies'. You have to kind of 'finesse' them in :)

Artist also has some different filters from Photoshop...like that Mystical Blur tool. None of the blur tools on PShop are quite like that. There are others as well but until I get more familiar with what all's in there I can't just snap 'em off the top of my head...yet.

Yes, there is too the fact that you can very easily create 3D meshes for landscapes and even export them into an .obj file...but that's a different subject.

I so enjoy reading this as it will help in my own mastery of the software.

some interesting points there ..I too loved the free dogwaffle ! so much I bought howler  :hubbahubba: RL prevented me getting much practise with it
in the meantime I "found" Kritta its a free paint proggy somewhat like PD but its not a photoshop clone, has some amazing brushes but maybe best with a graphics pen/tablet bit harder with a mouse

https://krita.org/

hope someone finds that fun

Looks very interesting and I see on the resources page they have additional Brush sets and on the learning page, some good tuts.
