Photoshop CS5

I've always been frustrated with how digital paint acts and looks. While Painter has natural media brushes I've never been happy with how they react; Painter has always been too slow and glitchy and the oil brushes make my images appear plastic like for some reason. So I've used mostly Photoshop for my digital art. But the problem there has been getting a wet into wet look. Everything was always too sharp or instead had that blurry digital feel when trying to blend, unless you worked really hard at it. Until now. Though it still takes some work, and still isn't perfect, Photoshop CS5 does make it much easier to get that traditional paint look.
