Hello here,

As the tilte says, I am looking for drawing software that could powerful as photoshop cc for drawing... I mean I see a lot of people using photoshop cc for concept art... The problem is, I am not really likely to buy a subscription fee, because for me subscribe fell like u ever got nothing as u lose everything as soon as u can't pay anymore. The fact is, I know photoshop cc is really a good software for drawing, however Do sombody knows a software that could seem as complete as this one, and really really affordable if its a paid one.

Thank U very much guys.

Thank U guys for ur answer really, but it seems like I u just gave me anwer I already experienced and try. But there a lack of some professional features the ones u jsut cited....I used them. However I was really impressed by the work flow someone can achieve with a further software (referring to my surrounding).
Thats really the kind of software I was looking for a next step.

Krita is your answer!

Simple answer if you need a Photoshop alternative for digital painting: Krita.

Krita is actually superior to PS in this regard - WAY better brush engine: it leaves PS in its dust. I left Photoshop for digital painting two years ago. Krita is just much more powerful than PS for digital painting. For example, in Krita the artist has access to perspective tools, mirror tools, repeating pattern tools, a wide array of brush effects, and so on, and so forth. PS cannot keep up with Krita. And a stroke stabilizer is built-in. The anti-aliasing quality is higher than Photoshop. And Krita also includes a real-time mode for very large and complex brushes, which keeps painting lag-free, while Photoshop stutters and just cannot keep up in comparison.

And, surprisingly and amazingly enough, Krita is open source and free to download!
