Linux and Graphic design... software ?


Ok, I am in the middle of my transition from XP to Linux... what is still holding me back? my dear dear Corel Draw

What Linux software designers are using over Linux ?

am I going to need to buy a Corel suite for Linux? or is there a fair Corel competitor ?

and what about 3D modeling..?

Kpovmodeler will not render anything !

For graphics use the Gimp. It's corel's/adobe's counterpart.

For 3D, i use Blender. It's quite intuitive and extremely powerful.

For 3D -- Maya. It's very, very expensive, though.

Thank you guys for all the responces.

Gimp is pretty good , but only fills one aspec of Corel Draw, and it sems that Corel Draw for Linux never made it out of beta >.< nowere to be found !!!!

Maya... er.. well... I am short one dollar and some pennies hahahahahaha... ($7000.00)

Blender... nice !!

Now I just need a good vector drawing tool, the ones I have seen are too limited and are not close to the productivity possible in Corel Draw.

I ma exploring that linuxartist link... let see what neat stuff we can find there
