Photoshop(costs $$) or The Gimp(FREE!) will do the job for you. The hard part is knowing all the techniques involved.

if you want to "draw" from scratch then you need something like Illustrator or Freehand.

Well...I do have Adobe Illustrator, and yes, I do want to draw from scratch. Isn't there an easier way to draw freehand without using the mouse? Something like a pen & drawing pad?

You could invest in a Wacom tablet. It's a tablet and pressure-sensitive pen that tracks better than a mouse and is more manuverable. In a graphics program like Photoshop, your lines react to the pen pressure so that your lines can taper off and other neat effects. I'm sure there are other brands, but I think Wacom is the most popular.

Hint: if you have a PC with a serial connection, you might be able to find a cheap one. I had to sell mine for a song after switching from Mac to PC and finding that Macs don't have serial ports. :)

This Wacom tablet works well with all the Adobe products, right? (Illustrator and Photoshop?)

Ok...so I just ordered the Wacom Tablet. It looks like a really COOL tool to use.

I can't wait for it to arrive so that I can take it for a test drive. :)

Thanks for suggesting this. :)
