Open Canvas is a good software, with some problems, its has some pretty useful tools like the perspective tools, are pretty helpful, i am doing a fan comic for fun in my free time and its pretty good, overall his Pencil is better than PhotoShop pencil´s with a Wacom tablet, but is not better than Sai Tools Pencils, although it has some pretty good tools that Sai lacks, so if your thinking about buying photoshop, i would recommend you to buy open canvas, buy Sai tools, and download GIMP(its a Freeware) its overall a lot more cheaper and you end up with more options.
The only problem i see with open canvas, is that sometimes its get slow or don't respond for a minute, but all of this mainly happen when your not connected to internet and if opening directly the program instead of using Steam.
Better pencil than photoshop(and cheaper)
Like all these kind of software its work better with a Wacom/Bamboo Tablet or similars
Sai has a better Pencil
Some response problems
like all these kind of software you may NEED to buy a Wacom/Bamboo Tablet or similars if you want to have use more easily the software.
