So you are an artist, but you can't afford Photoshop and Gimp is too crappy for you (which it really is!). You should try the open source GFX editing software Krita!

Will have to look into this!

GIMP is crappy alright. Thanks for the heads-up on an alternative!

Krita is really great, especially for people who want to use a tablet and can't handle how crappy GIMP deals with tablets!

I like the support it seems to have for working with different maps (normal, height etc.) but what I really want is basically a Gimp with a non-destructive workflow. It's the only thing I hate about Gimp - the inability to support adjustment layers, performing operations on entire layer groups, group masks and generally those sort of things. It also needs a better workflow when working on individual color channels of an image.
