If you plan on screen printing, I would recommend illustrator or coreldraw. Its easier to seperate the colors and you get sharp vector lines. I use coreldraw personally. I have illustrator and I'm still trying to master it...

you can't say illustrator sucks just b/c you don't know how to use it

illustrator has been used in this industry for a number of years so why wouldn't it be good?

illustator is easy enough for me

just draw on paper, pop it in the scanner and trace over it

ToonBoom Studio is what we use at the office and its real easy for me to use now but you might think its too hard. imo, its the best for drawing.

i work on both TB and Ill

just do Illustrator, learn it, and enjoy it

personally, i use a mixture of illustrator and photoshop. although i'm sure there are things that illustrator can do, i usually vector stuff out there and then move to photoshop because i haven't learned it all yet. photoshop may be "easier" but the whole reason both programs exist is because they do different things!

you can design in photoshop, but your going to have a hard time enlarging your design if you deceide to change sizes. illustrator is your best bet, take the time to learn it, it will help you in the long run

photoshop = pixel work

illustrator = vector work

you CAN design in photoshop but it all depends on what's the outcome of the design you want.

you say that want illustrator to be easier, well get used to the program and it'll be easy. that is said about everything.

peace

photoshop is made to work on raster images. illustrator is made to work on vectors. they are designed to be used together. you really shouldn't be using either one by itself, learning to use both together will open a whole new realm of possibilities.

yep, start with illustrator...i started with corel draw but i'm learning illustrator at the moment and have to say that the possibilities are bigger, especially when you also work with ps or flash or other adobe products (good integration)

Here's my two cents. Personally, I implement both of them. I use the "livetrace" function a lot in Illustrator, but do most of my design editing in Photoshop. I mean, if you're just screen printing on shirts, you don't have to have one million percent perfect resolution. At the end of the day, ink is going to look like ink. That's just my opinion of course. Obviously you want the best resolution possible, but it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect. Just make sure your design is spot on. Go with whatever is most comfortable, but try to master it.
