Do you use the free ones? I know there's a free equivalent to photoshop but I don't remember what it's called.

Jess/Fire! Long time no see! 8D As your digital art teacher, THAT IS AWESOME.

I'm very very proud of the progress you've made! 8D Also you should get on MSN more so we can frolic, yes D:

Also, you must teach me how to do that reflection thing. xD I've never figured it out.

I used photoshop for this but up until very very recently I was using one of the free programs I think the one you're referring is GIMP which is what I used up until I got photoshop you can download it here GIMP it's totally free and I think really good even now I still switch between the two sometimes :)
