Think of it this way; everything you can do in Sai, you can emulate in Photoshop. If you're willing to learn the more technical aspects of the program, like brush control and configuring the UI (not exactly rocket science, but still a few hours of brushing up), then definitely Photoshop, no contest.

However, if you simply want to just right in and begin painting/drawing, then Sai is for you.

Well, I have Photoshop right now, but some friends of mine said SAI is WAAAAAAY better for drawing. I dunno though, considering I am asking in the first place.

Do you have money?
SAI costs money.
It's pretty inexpensive, so if you crack SAI, you're a disappointment.
Don't have money? Don't get SAI.
Problem solved :D

I believe everyone else answered your questions.
Moving on. :3

It's not even slightly "better", it's easier. Blending is easy, colour picking is easy, the UI is easy. I've always considered it the Mac to Photoshop's PC, if that analogy makes any sense.

I started painting in Photoshop because it was the program I had when I decided to pull my painting stint in the first place; I got introduced to drawing digitally through making forum signatures, so I already knew quite a bit of the program, but if I could do it all again I'd give SAI a second look. Either way it's not a choice you'll regret, so long as you start learning your program of choice immediately.

There's a free version of one of the old versions of SAI that was fan-translated.

So Hiryu was KiwiSundae? Why am I not surprised? Anyway, regarding the sai or photoshop discussion, I think photoshop is a bit better than sai if you want more options and a whole myriad of other things to make effects. Yup.

No. Fuck you tampon. You know I love you, but fuck you. Even for NEWGROUNDS this is unacceptable. We have just failed at being superior to deviantArt. Let's just delete the entire art portal.

Well, there will always be good and bad art, and there will always be good and bad taste. What can we do? Can we stop people eating McDonalds, white bread, drinking coke?

I'm still confused how popularity on Ng works,
I think people target fanart here like on Da, but they also take OC into account a little bit more than Da?
Then again, NG Has amazing OC art, but fan art gets just as much attention?
That and anime isn't really wanted unless it's a unique style of anime?
I should just lurk more, I think.

Tits and ass.
Especially in the thumbnail.

Not even kidding, it's why the popular art is limited to Everybody and Teen rated submissions ... and even then, it's still not enough.

Draw anything as scary, beautiful or intelligent as you want,
as long as it looks like you have tits in your thumbnail.

Nope tried that. My tit-related entries actually have the lowest scores.

I'm pretty sure there's people going to the art portal looking only for the adult pictures to fap and not so much rate on the artistic value as much as how much it gets their little f*cking dicks wet.
It kind of makes me regret my username.
