It’s not about raw power
While it’s nice to have the latest all-singing, all-dancing software, I would argue that less can sometimes give more. If an art package has good touch response, reasonable layer functions and has enough basic tools to handle a range of mark making, your imagination and drive are the only two other things you need. I’m not saying don’t use the powerhouse software if you like and can afford them. Yet sometimes simpler software encourages more direct, creative freedom. That’s all.
