Many people (and really I mean many) use Photoshop or GIMP, the closest
open source equivalent program, for "paint-for-scratch" work even though
they're really not suited for this job. This is because almost all
specialized programs (included the famous Corel Painter) fail in so many
aspects of raster image processing/editing that their advantages in
artistic use are quickly overshadowed by them.
GIMP may be headed to other directions, but I believe there is a strong
demand for such features which cannot be ignored, as demonstrated for
example by this mixing brush source code patch I linked in my previous
post or Ramon Miranda's Gimp Paint Studio resource collection.
Perhaps a more advanced brush engine in the future can overcome the
current limitations without expressly introducing digital-artist-only
features? Not really a question, just a hope.
