I have Photoshop cs4 but im pretty sure i cant make these type of cartoons with ease. There has to be some sort of professional software that has these type of shapes preset or if not, have the ability to be able to create such shapes with ease. Ive tried searching on google for cartoon software but all i have found so far are really dodgy unprofessional programs, they are only designed for kids. I downloaded Xara extreme pro a while back, havent installed it yet, it looks very good, even better than photoshop, but i think its going to have an even more bigger learning curve than PS. Do you guys know of any programs that creates these kind of cool avatar/cartoon images with ease, oh and do i have to mention that it needs a professional look too lol.
