PShop beater, without a doubt.

At last Adobe has some real competition!
For 2D digital illustrators, this has to be the best software available and at a great price!
Comics and, possibly, story-book artists will find the cost of the EX version well worth it, the story and page management tools are a massive time-saver.
As for those who work on single images, the basic "pro" version has 90% of the tools of the EX version and is a third of the price.
At first you might feel overwhelmed by the range of tools and options this program offers, but it was designed so that each user can pick and choose what tools they need and tweak them, and the interface, to near perfection.
Just start off with the basic default tools and then as you get a feel for them you will know better how you want to tweak them for your working style.
The program actually feels very similar to Photoshop, but, in my opinion is vastly superior.
Try out the basic version for £45 quid and, if you need the story tools, I guarantee that you will be happy to pay the extra £100 for the upgrade to the EX version.
