This Gimpy Artist Prefers GIMP

After beating my head on a wall with Adobe Illustrator CC for a month, I’ve given up and gone with GIMP and Inkscape.

Whilst GIMP has its own annoyances and quirks, I’m finding it much easier!
Granted, there was a bit of transfer-of-knowledge from AI to GIMP, which allowed me to comfortably use the latter in just a day’s time. But I was getting things done — happily, easily — getting things done, by the next day.

But Holy Ravioli folks, WHY is AI So Damn Freaking Annoying?

    I ditched AI and Photoshop in favor of Inkscape and GIMP.

    Been creating my artwork and building my freelance career with Inkscape since 2011, a year later after downloading it (Ubuntu 10.10). GIMP, I only use it for the filters, resizing, and creating distorted elements ready to be vectorize in Inkscape.

    I like Gimp too. I have AI for my classes though. What were your problems with AI?
